“Interesting mix of Thai & Chinese & Vietnamese”
Reviewed July 10, 2011

We read great reviews about this restaurant and thought it was OK. We went at lunch and it was filled with retirees getting value for their dollar. The portions were large but the food was just OK. We have eaten in many Thai restaurants all over the world and this was not true Thai food. It was a blend of asian foods. We ate a little bit and left three quarters of our food. I ordered a Cashew Chicken dish and my husband order Pad Thai. Both dishes tasted the same. it you are looking for value though you have found the right place.

Easy to drive buy and not see. It is worth finding. Very good food. Small but inviting.

“Great place for gluten free Thai cuisine”
Reviewed June 2, 2011

My wife and I Thai Lotus for an informal Saturday birthday lunch before having to visit the family for a large party. The atmosphere was very casual and relaxed and we were able to carry a conversation without having to strain to listen or talk. The staff greeted us promptly, provided water, and took our beverage order. While looking over the menu the waitress returned with our beverages and asks if they were any questions about the menu. We explained we have Celiac's and needed gluten free options. She understood exactly what Celiac's is and provided recommendations. We settled on Pad Thai and pumpkin curry with chicken.
The food was presented quickly, within 10 or 15 minutes as we didn't notice the time while chatting and enjoying our Thai coffees, served family style . The food was delivered hot, with garnishes, robust flavor, and very delicious. The rice noodles perfectly cooked, pumpkin curry had a nice texture without being squishy, and the spices perfectly balanced without going over the top and burning your mouth. No complaints!
Thai Lotus is definitely a win with great value for the dollar, relaxed atmosphere, genuine staff, and tasty cuisine.

“Just driving through and saw this place...”
Reviewed October 11, 2010

Just driving through and saw this place on TA and wanted to give these guys some more kudos. Not
'The best' Thai I have had but very very good and worth the stop. Lunch values were very good as was the service, presentation, and atmosphere.
