The food here is always fresh and tasty and with the right amount of heat- you can specify mild, medium or hot. The pad thai is delicious and so are the veggie and chicken dishes with basil or garlic or whichever option you choose. We get food here about every other week and are never disappointed. There are a few... More

Love this little hole in the wall restaurant. My favorite Tum Kum Gai soup ever! When you need comfort food this is the place.

There is absolutely no pretense at this restaurant. However, the Thai offerings are terrific. Very fresh. We really enjoy lunches and dinners here.

Small town, rural area, entrance to parking lot is down the hill. the place is almost a bit hidden and one could be easy to drive past. inside just a few tables, and it could really qualify as a hole in the wall type place. Enter and be greeted immediately. The kitchen is right there in front of you and... More

Tasty Thai style food. Mostly a to-go place, only two tables. The food overall is good, though I do question the quality of their meats. Salads are very good, but do watch out for preservatives if you are sensitive to that. Decent $$

This tiny place is a wonderful surprise. The food is cooked fresh each time and is just like we ate in Thailand. Always a lunch special which is a great bargain. This family run business is friendly and good!

Been here so often, I lost count. Many people rave about the other Thai place on the other side of town, but for my money, Lotus is the best bang for your buck. If you like the classics like pad see ew, spicy noodle, and pad thai, you won't be disappointed.

I love this place, but I have to say I was not very pleased with the pho. I prefer the pho at Mandarin Gourmet on Madonna. On the other hand, the rest of the food was great! I took one star off because of the mediocre pho.
