Small package, big flavour

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

Great food and service. The place can get busy so call ahead for reservations. If you enjoy Thai food, you will enjoy Lotus Pad. Small venue, but attractively designed. We enjoyed a seat near the open kitchen. Sights and smells were wonderful and added to the experience.

A great place for Thai food, also just ate there for a special night featuring Indian cuisine, which was amazing. Service is fast & efficient, food flavorful and good sized portions. They have a full bar, Thai Iced tea too! Place is really small so I highly suggest reservations or calling in a “to-go” order early. One of the more... More

We travel to Big Sky 6-8 Times a year and never miss an opportunity to eat here. The staff is always friendly and the food is amazing! I love the Drunken noodles! Great to sit at bar and watch the chefs prepare the food! Phenomenal!!

Now let me start by saying I'm Australian and we have some of the best Thai and Asian cuisine outside those countries. So, this place has a great vibe and some good authentic flavours- and the best thing is it gives you a break from the stodgy burger, fries and pizzas that seem to be the norm. Ask for it... More

Lotas pad is an amazing, cozy, hot spot in the meadow village. Making it a regular trip for us up from Bozeman. Great cocktails and an awesome sharing menu with fresh local products.Crying Tiger is a must(although we miss the shrimp). Service is awesome, servers are knowledgeable and accommodating.

Ok, first realize your going to eat Thai food in Big Sky Montana, second consider it is a small restaurant with a mini-open kitchen, they seem to do a fair amount of take-out so that messes up the kitchen flow, and fourthly realize your going to sit and enjoy some nice Thai beer while you wait. If you come with... More

On our first night in Big Sky, we ended up at this very crowded Thai restaurant and had a wonderful dinner. I had the special which was a salmon stir fry - seasoning was great and nice size portions. Most of my colleagues couldn't finish their dinners - although we did have a lot of great appetizers also. Great service... More
