We love white Lotus- especially the wing herb. It’s the best fried chicken wing dish ever, seriously. The food is fresh, fairly fast, and always good.

I really enjoy this restaurant. The food is great. Their Tom Yum soup is delicious, and so is the curries. They have a variety of options when it comes to curry. Everyone I've tasted is yummy.

There are plenty of Thai restaurants in the Bay Area, but if you are in Berkeley/Albany, this is the place to go. The servings are generous, beautiful presentation, and delicious and fresh dishes. Try the dish of the day. You will not be disappointed.
