We visited for a Sunday lunch... I never knew this place in its good days, and see a lot of comments about the place going downhill. It was very quiet - I think we were the only people there, but I have to say the...More

We've been regular customers of Lotus Thai for many years. Recently the restaurant just lost its atmosphere. The food tastes more like fast food and service itself is not great. It seems more people are feeling this way as the restaurant will be almost empty...More

We visit this restaurant on a regular base. In May we were in Phuket for holiday and some restaurants serve the same type of food as Lotus Thai, so now we know this restaurant is authentic! Also the prices are similar in Phuket.

Probably the worst Thai food I have ever eaten. Barely resembles Thai - chicken swimming in overly sweet canned sauces, identical (frozen? ) vegetables in each dish. We looked at Trip Advisor reviews before coming and cannot figure out where they came from. Horrid.

If you want an all you can eat sushi buffet, then this is the place. Delicious sushi and price is R135 pp. They have a big variety of sushi dishes and also fried goodies. Love the relaxed ambience of the restaurant.

Lotus Thai for me was definitely a tantalizing, mouth-watering, experience and definitely great bang for buck. The restaurant setting provided an innovative seating plan and the owners treated us like we were part of the family. The wide variety of Asian food and sushi was...More

Sad to say that we are moving on to find another Thai restaurant in Pretoria East since our last experience was just not good. The food is not authentic anymore and the only good thing is the service :(
