Everything on their menu is delicious and you don't have to like hot food. You get a real taste of Thai culture too

We were lucky to get a table without a reservation on what seemed to be a busy night, with a couple of large groups in. Despite this, the service was fantastic with our water regulaly refilled and extra rice brought round. The food was very good, if not exceptional, and the whole meal was good value. Would definitely recommend if you're in the mood the Thai in Taupo.

Dined at the Lotus thai on our way through Taupo on Sunday night and as always had an excellent meal. My husband and I had our 20 month with us and he loved the food as well. Every time we come here the service is faultless and super friendly and attentive. The food arrives fast and is presented nicely and always tastes divine. So far we have tried ten or more items from the menu and they've all been amazingly tasty. We tend to stick with main meals but have tried the mixed entree which is very good. Even the desert's are lovely if you still have room after the generous mains. Price wise its fantastic value for money. Just wish we lived closer!

I booked a table for dinner here with my wife and 5 year old. There are a couple of Thai restaurants in Taupo town and so I just went by the TP reviews. I have to say that the food was very good, perhaps a little too sweet, but very tasty. The service was excellent, and very good value for money. It is a BYO and corkage is only $2 which is amazing. Worth a visit. My tip is to ask for some chilli sauce if you like it spicy as the homemade chili sauce is fantastic!!!

Visited lotus Thai with my husband after reading the reviews. Were pretty hungry after an afternoon of swimming. Met with friendly staff who arranged a table despite not having made a reservation. Service was excellent throughout the evening with regular fills of water and to see if things were ok. Spring roll wrapped in fried noodle was very good. Fish cakes lacked any real taste so i don't recommend it. The choo chee whole snapper fish was delightful. Asked for it to be extra spicy which it was. Fish was very filling - was the only main we ordered which we shared. Hot Rice is topped up through the meal. Ambience is pleasant with tasteful decor. A great evening out!
