Recommended by hotel staff, very nice upscale casual Thai theme decor and atmosphere, food quite good.

Visiting San Diego and asked for Thai recommendation. This was the only one mentioned. Gal said its her favorite. Ordered Thai ice tea and Masaman curry beef. Well prepared and presented. Staff attentive. Good flavor, nice heat. I'll return.

Great spot for Thai - a friend brought me here while visiting and we shared some soup and curry dish. Service was a bit slow during lunch, but very pleasant staff. Great food.

I very much enjoyed this place, it is a bit on the expensive side but it certainly is one of the best Thai places that I know of and I liked the feeling of the restaurant - this is a nice place you could take a date.

We came on a saturday night during happy hour, and basically ordered all our appetizers and drinks for a great price! We ordered the Drunken Noodles and they were amazing (with shrimp). This is a great find with good prices and a relaxed but nice atmosphere. Perfect date night for a relaxed setting, but you still feel like you are... More

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
