Las Vegas Restaurants

Lotus of Siam

Updated 05/28/2014

Fodor's Review

This simple Thai restaurant has attained near-fanatical cult status leaving some to wonder what's all the fuss? Consider the starter of marinated prawns, which are wrapped with bacon and rice-paper crepes, then deep-fried and served with a tangy sweet-and-sour sauce. For a main course, try dishes such as charbroiled beef liver mixed with green onion and chile, or the chicken and vegetables with Issan-style red curry. Be warned—this is some of the spiciest food you'll

ever try. But another of Lotus's surprises is the phenomenal wine list, on which you might find a vintage to cool your palate.

Daunting menu

Lotus's menu is gigantic, and thus we'll need to go back to learn what's best. Have been there once so far - food and service were excellent and the value compared to places on the strip amazing. Bright lights and walls covered w photos - you don't go there for the ambience.

The Best Thai Restaurant in America?

According to Gourmet magazine, it is the best Thai restaurant in the United States. I agree. This place is delicious. The place is jammed nightly. For sure call ahead for reservations. Probably a full day is needed. Your best bet on the food is to have Bank, the owner’s son, order for you. Additionally he has vast wine knowledge. It is located a few minutes East of Las Vegas Blvd on Sahara in a very nondescript center. I have some pictures
