Lotus.Thai Ratings and Reviews
I went on a Saturday afternoon. There were only a few people there, I'm guessing because it was still early and the weather was terrible. But I arrived with my boyfriend and our waitress was very attentive and sweet. She was so nice that her energy made us feel happy. Very weird but we told her she was delightful. The drinks were very tasty but on the weak side as far as alcohol. The food was fresh and delish. I have no complaints.
Came here by advertisement in radio - was advertized 50% off all drinks.
Received drinks list exactly as advertised - Mojito for 5, bottle of champagne for 12.5 - not bad!!!
Appetizers are very tasty, but not cheap, half of the duck for entree was the gem!.
Very ambient atmosphere, VERY nice waitresses.
Recommend for a chilling spot.
Stopped here for dinner before our movie. The food was tasty but the service was a little slow. There were about 3 girls walking around and we kept having to look for someone when we wanted another drink/ order. They didn't have a food rating in the window but we still gave it a try.
I loved this place! Great place for thai food lovers and hookah lovers! Our server was Mint and she was awesome! The food was amazing as was the ambiance! i took my friends there for a birthday dinner but plan on going back for a date because that place is just too good!
The service was great, and the food was delicious. Got a chance to meet the owner and he was very warm and inviting. We lucked up in parking right outside in the front. The dishes were reasonably priced. Would definitely return, and recommend it also for private parties the space was nice and nicely decorated.
Upon entering the space, a hostess greeted us immediately. Our waitress was very friendly and accomodating and the food most importantly was also good. For drinks I had the Blue thai Mojito and my friend had the a thai iced tea. For starters we shared the dumpling sampler. For dinner I had the marinated rib eye, fried sweet potatoes and bokchoy. My friend had the Red curry w/ shrimp and Jasmine rice. My steak was very tender and juicy and my friends food also had good flavor balancing the seafood with the red curry spices. We in the end split their version of the bananas foster for dessert. Overall, I would say that the place is a nice spot to check out if your hanging out on a Friday or Saturday. Little pricy for the portion size.
I was looking for a Thai place to take my parents for dinner. I was reading the reviews for the place and was surprised of some of the negative comments but still decided to go. The food was great. One of the best Thai food I had and I had many. The prices are very reasonable. Don’t pay attention to the negative remarks about the place. I would definitely go back and its a drive for me from Long Island.
1. There computer was not on so they couldn't put in that I showed up.
2. When you ask for something, they forget and seem like they don't even care. At one point I had to wave both my hands to get one of the ladies to come to our table.
3. Waited half an hour for our food and didn't get it till we reminded the lady.
4. Food was cold and duck just a little over cooked.
5. Finally at the end we had to pay 18% tip for only two people. This must be the reason why the stuff acts like they couldn't care less about giving good service. Why should they if they're going to get a great tip no matter what.
If you're not in a rush or hungry at all, this is the best spot. We were a party of 4 who came here on a Wednesday evening to celebrate a friend's birthday. Diners are usually greeted with water within 1 -3 minutes of being seated. We waited about 10 minutes before we were given ice water, and we also had to ask for it. Appetizers took about 20 minutes. Entrees took another 20 minutes after we were done with appetizers. We didn't think that dessert would take long either, but we waited for half an hour.
I'm assuming it was the manager who gave us each a complimentary shot of lychee...something. It was a nice gesture but didn't make up for the insanely long wait.
Love lotus... It's one of the best local restaurant in Brooklyn I've been to... The food is amazing... Good price and you actually get a good amount of good on ur plate... Totally love the decor an hookah.. Very spacious an clean... Great service... Can't wait to visit again
First time dining at Lotus Thai and was impressed! Great food, the service is impeccable, the selection of drinks are wonderful and they have a hookah lounge! Great for groups! Had several appetizers from crispy fish with mangoes to frog legs. All delish!!! Main entrees we had the filet mignon, Thai paella sytle and the tilapia dish. Terrific as well. We had the Thai Iced Tea...a must!!! and the mango margarita!! Would come back here for sure. If you want a nice quiet romantic evening, this is not the place for you. It can get a little vibrant. Unless your date don't mind! they have a DJ who plays club music (some say Euro trash music- i kinda like it though LOL!)
I was a last minute neigborhood booking for Valentines Day. We were happy to arrive and be seated, but waited much over 15 minutes to even put in a drink order. If we hadn't had ordered everything all at the same time, Appetizers and Dinner Plates, I feel it would have taken close to two hours to have a simple dinner and bottle of wine. It was crowded, I will give the restaurant that, but they should have accommodated for the amount of reservations by having an extra number of people on. Probably wouldn't go back unless it was off peak hours for lunch or was at least offered a complementary glass of wine.
Went there on a deal for the second time. The food is pretty good, not great but good. Compared to the other reviews I've read, my service was excellent. The food did take a while to come, but I enjoyed the time with my husband and the wait staff was very pleasant. One thing I don't like about this place, though it's just my personal taste, is that may of the chairs do not have backs, so for a long wait for food, it can get uncomfortable to sit. Overall, it's a very nice ambiance for the neighborhood and I would probably go back there again
I will always visit Lotus, comfortable atmosphere, so many choices for dinner and everything was delicious! On regret is that they did not have any Zinfandel which is our favorite wine but we made do, everything else covered the missing wine. Lotus is recommendable. Thank you.
Horrible service! Charged us an extra $40 because we brought a cake. When I mentioned that we would be bringing.our own cake to the receptionist over the phone, there was no mention of an extra charge. When the subject was addressed they rudely responded to our complaints and refused to accommodate us. Will never ever go again worst experience we've ever had!!!!!!
The food was wonderful. The table was spacious and comfortable. The decor was lovely. The servers were okay in energy and eagerness to inform. Seemed a bit off put by our questions, but still okay. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant and definitely plan to go back in the future.
