My first time to Lotus Pad was an excellent first experience. I don't think anything on their menu is bad. The lettuce wraps were so delicious I wanted to go back a second time but decided to try another place. Overall, this restaurant was very good and would recommend it to anyone even if you don't like thai food.

We've been to Big Sky numerous times, but never to the lotus pad due to picky-eating young kids. We decided to go this year and were very pleased. The food was excellent- even the "double-black diamond" hot was not too bad. The cocktails were great too. I'd give it a 5, but, honestly, the space is tiny and not well... More

Small place, but very friendly and well-run. The food was very good (cold beef salad, green curry with chicken, pad Thai with tofu), and did have some spice to it. A number of craft beers were available. Be sure to get reservations -- there aren't a lot of tables, and the place is justifiably popular. Very reasonably priced.

Consistently great food. Having come here with groups 3 times now, and having shared most of our food, I feel qualified to say that there are no misses on this menu. There are many great surprises. The confines are cramped, but the service is good and the food is great. They also have a few really wonderful mixed drinks. Better... More

I had the Tom Yum and the Duck & Asian Pear entree, both delicious! I was a little worried about how the duck would be, but it was incredibly tender. Overall, great experience. It's really small so definitely call ahead for reservations.

Absolutely delicious dinner at Lotus Pad. Staff was friendly, very helpful with questions, and flexible on the spiciness. Huge portions as typical per an American Asian meal, but my husband and I left nothing behind. Enjoyed the pork spring rolls, 5 spice beef and duck with pear. Reservations are a must. Thinking of going again before vacation is over.

INCREDIBLE Thai food! The owners also throw in some inventive ingredients for unforgettable food. Nicely poured drinks too. It is a small and busy restaurant, and every mean is made to order in their open kitchen.

We have eaten here before but it was a few years ago. Glad we came back! The food was just the right level of spicy for both of us who prefer different levels of heat. The appetizer special was superb! The pickled papaya added just the right kick. Pad Thai was terrific! And my spouse's spicy shrimp & pork belly... More

Really great food although it is very cramped and very loud. Very casual. The food makes up for it. The corn cakes were truly outstanding as were the lettuce wraps. Definitely worth a visit and definitely make a reservation.
