Simply put I feel Thai Lotus has the best Thai food around. The food, service and atmosphere is great. I do not hesitate to highly recommend a meal here when in the mood for some good eats.

Great Thai Food. I love Thai restaurants and I went there due to the reviews. I actually visited two Thai restaurants which were very similar. Great Thai Food. pad Thai was good, Green curry was great. The vegetables were very fresh but the curry broth was a bit thin. I like it a little creamier. The fresh rolls were excellent... More

Have eaten here several times with my father and my twin sons (7). Each time it has been very good. The service was a bit slow when we visited during lunch but early dinner hours we have not had to wait long. If you love Thai curry, Pad Thai, for a reasonable price in a low key atmosphere that's also... More

I have eaten at a lot of Thai restaurants in this country and others, and Thai Lotus ranks in my top three Thai food restaurants. The food was excellent, and the prices were very fair. Our server was excellent. She answered our questions, made suggestions, and was extremely polite. My wife asked for a "spiciness" recommendation, so our server asked... More

Authentic Thai feel with an excellent and very helpful staff. Everything was tasty, clean and well-prepared. Even when they're busy, the food comes out quickly. They are very accommodating and will alter any dish to personal preference - no problem.

My sister selected this restaurant for her birthday dinner. We were not disappointed! Food was plentiful and excellent! We ordered four different dishes...each unique and wonderful. If you do not like spicy Thai, do not go over their level 3...2 would have been plenty for us! Enjoy!

One of the best Thai restaurants in Reno. They are reasonably priced and their food is very consistent. The staff are very welcoming and always have a smile on their face.

Parking is adequate. Lighting is sufficient. Upon entering you are greeted with a friendly smile. The property is very clean. Noise level is low considering how close the tables are positioned. The menu is typical of a Thai restaurant. Service was very good. All the food was fresh and presentation was well done. However the flavors were weak and lacking.... More

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
