Lotus Thai is a Thai restaurant in San Diego that has been repeatedly voted the best Thai in the city by several media outlets. As soon as diners set foot through the doors, they are greeted with the gentle sound of Lotus Thai's indoor waterfalls. This, paired with its stone Buddha statues and beautiful flora create a peaceful, relaxing ambiance in which to dine.
Lotus Thai's menu is full of classic dishes of Thailand, bringing in the signature spice and flavors of the region. It also has several takes on Chinese dishes that will be familiar to most American diners. While spicy and flavorful chicken and beef are found throughout the menu, there is also a large selection of vegetarian options, making this an ideal place for those that prefer a meatless diet.
Food was disappointing. We were a party of 6 and mistake on one order. Correct order did not arrive until everyone else wasfinished eating. No apology, no offer to adjust bill. Would definitely not return
The food was excellent throughout. We started with the veggie dumplings. For main course, we ordered Panang curry with Tofu, Drunken noodles, Spicy Eggplant, Red Curry with Tofu, and Spicy fried rice. Red curry was spicy even for our spicy palette but every thing else was tasty. Service was also bery good. Overall a memorable experience.
Traveling in San Diego when I found this gem. A half hour walk from my hotel was worth the effort. Green curry was tasty, well-seasoned and good portion size. Will definitely return on my next trip.
The restaurant is nice in a convenient location if you are visiting and staying close to the convention center. It took a while for them to get my order. The food was ok. A little on the bland side to me in comparison to other Thai restaurants I have been to. I ordered the fried banana w/ ice cream dessert and it took a while to come out. When it finally came out the ice cream was half melted and it was not that good. Nice staff, but I would not go back if I were back in town.
Excellent Thai food. Served unique dishes plus the standard Thai foods. Appetizers were especially unique. Portions were large and service was excellent.
Excellent service as always from Alex. They are happy to find gluten free alternatives.
Cheap dinner dishes and lovely restaurant
Green shrimp curry, cashew nut with pork (bit into chile, suffered intensely), red shrimp curry, and Pad Thai (a bit greasy on the egg).
Very tasty, good service, manager was kind and responsive to turn down thumping beat which disturbed dining comfort, and substitute more gentle music.
Our food was delicious, however the service was very slow. My husband was not acknowledged when he sat down, he waited 20 minutes to get a drink. It took even longer to get our order in. It was not too crowded, however, the waiters did not know who was taking care of our table!
The portion sizes were great. The mango sticky rice is awesome...sweet but salty...warm rice with cold mango, it's delightful. They were playing Sirius BPM club type music, but it wasn't loud creating a hip fun atmosphere. Dining outside only for small groups...dining inside is romantic with more ambiance. Overall great!
