The food is very good and less pricey than ¨A Taste of Thai¨ on University Ave. The Hot and sour soup is my favorite.

I just spotted Lotus restaurant while browsing through Sand Diego. It was a Thursday evening and I felt a little hungry, but not too much. So I had a look at the menu outside and decided to explore the place. I was greeted very friendly and could chose a table as the restaurant was only half full. I got the... More

This is the type of place where you walk in and you just know you're going to eat really well by the smell of real Thai basil and lemongrass wafting though the air. Probably the best green curry I've had outside of Thailand! My taste buds will be dreaming about this meal for a long time...

Love the many choices, the variety of heat you can pick from, the teas/coffees, appetizers. We like the lunch combos, the service as well. And it is beautiful in here. Once in a while parking can be a problem, it is hit or miss on 6th but you can always walk a block or two and check out the local... More

I have been a regular customer of Thai Cuisine for probably 20 years. The experience has been always good, to the point that most of my family members and friends that visit me, want to go back there. From a light dinner after an intense day of work, to a feast to celebrate a birthday, the consistent quality of food,... More

This place is a couple of miles outside San Diego (there's another one in Market Street in the centre of town), but was on our route back from SD to our hotel in La Jolla. Why eat Thai when on a visit to the States when we can eat Thai at home? Blame the wife - she likes Thai! And... More

I have been to lotus thai several times. Super fresh food with beautiful presentation. Relaxing atmosphere and not too loud in the restaurant. I have tried several dishes and was not disappointed with any of them, just inspired to try more new things.

I think this is one of the best Thai restaurants in San Diego. The atmosphere is cozy and comfortable, and the food was delicious. I had the papaya salad, medium spice, and it was fresh and crunchy and well seasoned. Also had the Tom kha soup with shrimp. It was creamy and flavorful and absolutely yummy. Our server, Kitty, was... More

My wife and I are Thai food junkies. There are other thai places where we eat occasionally for a change of pace, but we always think of Lotus Thai first. We've never had a bad meal.
