I went early at 5:30 as I read it fills up early ! I was asked to sit at inside bar which is located directly behind the line cooks and heat and commercial vent noise. Literally about two feet behind. I declined and took a two top behind that bar. No a/c at all on an 80 degree day. Place... More

Our family of 8 had dinner there as it was the only one that could seat all of us pretty quick. Important consideration after a long day at Yellowstone. We were seated at a long table for 8 upstairs. Very tight quarters. Menu was surprising limited and missing dinner of our favorites. Note that dishes are family style and serve... More

We enjoyed outdoor dining with friends while eating delicious food! The ingredients were fresh and well prepared. They were attentive to the heat factor of our food. The lettuce wraps and curry dishes hit the mark. Thank you for a wonderful meal!

Our family of seven including 7 year old and teenager had dinner after fun day in Big Sky. We ordered many items off menu so we could sample as much as possible - everything was delicious! We all look forward to having dinner here again on our next visit to Montana!

For a town with not a lot of Asian food options, Lotus Pad comes through big time for Big Sky. Several locals recommended it to my wife and me when we were asking for restaurant recs. It did not disappoint. Spring rolls were very tasty (and not fried), green curry had intense flavor and some good heat, and the beef... More

Food was incredible. The place was super crowded and we had to wait, but it was well worth it. Had great spice level.

We were in big sky for our honeymoon and were walking around the town center looking for a place to eat. We came across the Lotus Pad and I am not an adventurous eater - I typically only go to places with chicken fingers and french fries - but I was feeling adventurous and stopped by this place and I...

Last week we had the chef specialty Crispy Beef Shaking Shrimp - wow! Crunchy twice fried beef made healthy with local fresh veggies. Amazing. And their Tom Kah Gai soup (coconut, lemongrass, chicken) is the best I have had anywhere. We are back here again tonight. Dog friendly patio.

We were 4 people, the dishes were all great. They are a small place, so can't fix alot of dinners at once..so be prepared for a short wait at the table to get everyone served.but a small price to pay for a great meal

Absolutely loved the food & service! They are only open on certain days of the week, and only dinner hours so check before you go. It is likely that you might have to wait as it is very popular… because it is so good! They have indoor (tables and bar) and limited outdoor seating. They prep food (gather it in... More
