Best pad thai and huge portion

I love thai food and this is the best I've tried. Spring rolls were amazing with peanut sauce. Pad thai, awesome--fed four ladies! One lady seemed to be running the show. She was the waitress and the cook but she did it well. Parking is difficult downtown but worth the hassle for the food. Can't... read more

We were hungry for lunch after visiting temple square, and searched the GPS, and we found this place. Glad we did. Good thai food. After the meal we got "yum yum", kinda like tapioca, but better and very tasty. We would come back.

I had the Pad Thai Lunch Special. I had a small salad with peanut dressing which was tasty. The Main Entree was flavorable and was a large portion. The service was friendly and knowledgeable. I will return.

This little hole in the wall serves great Thai food from soups, to appetizers to a hearty main course. Portions are ample so share with a friend or be prepared to bring some back to enjoy later. It is difficult to get truly GOOD Thai food these days, and we'll be back at our first opportunity.

My husband and I just finished a delightful lunch at Thai Lotus. We were immediately greeted and given our choice of tables, noticing that the restaurant was not overly busy for lunch time. Our waitress was friendly, attentive and gracious, accommodating our requests for all-vegetable curry selections in place of the typical meat and tofu. Being from Bangkok, she even... More

If you love thai food, then this place is the place to visit. The staff was great and portions were perfect. I would eat here again when in town again.

A lunch from "express menu" took us 1 hour 20 minutes, even getting menus was painfully slow, and in the end everybody got plates at very different times. Dry chicken, too salty curry, no ginger in tom kha gai.

As a local, this is one of my favorite places to go when I'm craving Thai food. Their curries are delicious and arrive in hearty portions. My husband and I can split a curry and appetizer and be full, and the bill is under $20. The service is more laid back, but they're still attentive.
