I rarely write a rave (or negative) review after only one visit, but this is one of those exceptions. That's because it's been a loooong time since I had a great Thai Beef salad, and it was Thai Lotus that ended the drought! It's hard to get the beef cooked properly, which for me means rare, and it takes decent... More

Thai Lotus was a great find for us. The ambiance and decor adds to the wonderful taste of a wide selection of entrees. The service was efficient and check-ins during the room was completed with a smile. It sits back from the main street (So. Virginia) and can be accessed from Neil Street. There was an extensive gluten-free menu available... More

Lunch specials , must have 20, all include appetizer, salad, rice and entree. Starts at $8.95. Pad Thai is sweet and tasty. Vegetables are crisp as they... More

Had lunch with friends and everyone enjoyed their meal. Pad Thai for me done to perfection, pineapple chicken for a friend, very good. Red curry looked and tasted great. The only person that felt the dish needed more spice ordered a chicken dish. Still good but needed more tang.

So good! If you have the chance go eat at Thai Lotus. If you love Thai food you will love this restaurant. Had the Tom kha soup which was the best I have ever had out. Also tried the red curry with chicken which was also delicious. Seriously you need to eat here.

The Thai Lotus is in an unexpected shopping area, but near the highway and easily accessed. My husband and I went here for dinner on a Saturday evening based on the many favorable TA reviews - we were not disappointed! Thank you TA reviewers! This is a really nice place with excellent and friendly service. All the dishes on the... More
