Great find in Big Sky

We visit Big Sky frequently but only eat out occasionally. Last month during a visit to Big Sky we found ourselves with a group of 12 hungry souls and no plans. We ended up at the Lotus Pad and it was a huge success. We were seated in the upstairs private dining area which was perfect for our... read more

My husband wanted to go back every night and eat here again. The place is small- eat outside if you can. Everything is made from scratch and delicious. It is amazing the quality of food from two woks. The house cocktails are unique and delicious. Their sauces are homemade with a level of spicy for all tastes. The lettuce wraps... More

Lotus Pad is one of those hole in the wall places, cramped, and impossible to stretch out in, that keeps drawing us back . With limited seating, and every single dish made individually on order, we always wonder hoe they turn those dinners out from such a small kitchen. The local staff is friendly, and are always running, but they... More

Amazing salmon with chef's choice farm organic vegetables!! We are back for the second time and will order again. I have been craving all week. The Tom Kha soup has a delicious broth underneath the coconut milk. Also delicious! We are a party of six this week so perhaps other guests will order different dishes to try. Highly recommend!

So good! Great portions and a variety to choose from on the menu...not everything is spicy! The restaurant is small, but a quaint dining experience.

The Lotus Pad never disappoints -- great food, great service in intimate quarters! We have been here many times and it is consistently terrific. The food is fresh, locally sourced and tastes amazing. I have dined as couples, with my family of 5 (including kids) and with girlfriends, and each event is great. The Lotus Pad is the best restaurant... More

Everything is good. The larp is a must have. Curry is great. Can't really think of anything not to like...unless there is a type of food that one doesn't like. The place is small, so service is tight as the chef only cooks one order at a time.

Our appetizers were pretty good but everything else was off, not terrible just not very good. Perhaps the worst was they forgot snap peas in the special of the evening that featured snap peas. I've never paid as much for a Thai dish as I did for the evening special ($25) nor have I ever been so disappointed. A close... More

The Lotus Pad is one of the best Thai food restaurants I’ve ever eaten at and I’d go back in a heartbeat. The place is small where we were, about six tables and a small bar. We were seated at the bar even though we weren’t drinking but I was glad because the chef was cooking right in front of... More
