Thai Lotus has had a recent overhaul with their service, and it is EXCELLENT! My family and I have been dining at Thai Lotus for 12 years. The past couple of years their service had become slow, but their wonderful food was worth the wait. Now, with the changes they have made, the food arrives quickly and is extremely delicious!...

They have a back room for large noisey parties and an area for quiet dining. The crowd of thirty in the back room could not be heard by us during our meal. That was so nice. The service was great, and they were very accommodating with special requests (no cabbage, extra peanut sauce). Our ice tea was always full. We... More

Excellant place to have a nice girl's lunch out. I was pleasantly surprised at the environment, extremely friendly staff and great food. This was my first experience and was impressed to bring friends back. Price is great for the portions. Options are excellant both in Thai and American.

We went on a sunday and ended up getting the buffet. When we first went up to the buffet about half of the buffet was empty. There was this obnoxious overweight lady that had a table by the buffet. Everytime I looked atthe buffet she was grabbing items by hand and bringing them back to her table. In regards to... More

We stopped here on a Sunday night, and we never had a chance to try the food. When we walked in, I noticed that things seemed "off". The decor was interesting, but seemed run down and dirty. The more I looked around, the more I realized how things were not clean. The wait staff was very disorganized. My trip to... More

I have been here twice. The first time, the food took forever. But- they apologized and brought us free tempura vegetables for an appetizer. The main course was good- but nothing spectacular. This second time- the entire experience was awful. There were 3 in our party. The first meal came after about 45 minutes. The next 2 meals came about... More

We stopped in on the spur of the moment, dressed in our grubby clothes and yet we were treated like royalty. This is a place you want to go when you have a lot of time, as the service is slow. It is so relaxing, though, that you don't mind. We went on a Sat. night and there was live... More
