On our trip out west, we stayed in Big Sky, MT. We were surprised to find a Thai restaurant available to us. My husband and I shared a Som Tom (Green Papaya Salad) and it was very good; however, we're used to it having whole peanuts and they were crushed in theirs. Then, we had the Pork Lettuce Wraps and...

Was visiting my brother and he told me about the place. We were hungry after spending the day in Yellowstone and he mentioned the Lotus Pad as a great place to eat...and he was right. Sat upstairs and had a great meal. Loved their Cashew Chicken and I think they have the best Montana Mule (a drink). Wait staff was... More

All good, from service to quality to price! We all had a different dish and they were all one of a kind. Organic, wholesome food! We showed up without reservations and the place was full inside and out and they still found a spot for us! You could watch the cooks prepare your food and all the dishes they turned... More

My boyfriend and I visited in June, and even though we spent most of our time in Montana enjoying bbq...we thought we would give this a shot. The place was pretty full, but we called ahead so there was a table ready and we only had to wait a couple of minute. Even though there were two huge parties being... More

We arrived at the restaurant at 8.00 pm on a Friday evening. We had a choice between eating inside the restaurant or outside. Inside was very cramped but the weather was somewhat inclement so inside it was. We were greeted by a Friendly hostess and server. Looked at the menu and certainly pricing was well above what we would normally... More

We called to order carryout and was told the food would not be ready for one hour. I was kind of shocked why it would take so long, but maybe it was a busy night, so I said OK. When my husband arrived to pick up the food, he was told they needed 20 more minutes. So he waited 20... More

Decent food, awful prices, terrible service.It took an hour and a half for takeout. One appetizer and one meal. I ended up paying for two full overprived meals, and only one rice. Not even good Thai. Decent for a small town, no excuse for the amount of money spent.

We ordered and picked up our food. Certainly based on the reviews, and comments from locals, we thought we were in for a real treat. Not so. We had Pad Thai (which we love) that consisted of noodles that were somewhat chopped up, and very little in terms of the protein (we had ordered both chicken and beef). The spring... More

We were looking forward to Pad Thai, one of our favorite dishes, and unfortunately found this to be average. Our selections were woefully lacking the chicken and beef they were meant to include. The Spring Rolls that advertised shrimp included none (out of the four we ordered). To be clear, we don't expect "fancy" we just expect dishes to represent... More

We were staying just south of Big Sky during an early season Yellowstone trip. We struggled to find anything decent ot eat in the area, and finally decided on Lotus Pad on a whim. What a wonderful surprise! The place is small (at least the downstairs area), but you get to see the chef/owner cook everything right from your table.... More
