Thai Lotus is the best Thai Restaurant I've eaten at across more than 10 states.Get the pumpkin curry. Just do it. I waited until my 5th visit. The pumpkins are some kind of small Asian pumpkin that had me smiling like a jack-o'-lantern because wow! What a treat!And I'm not a vegetarian but the "Basil Eggplant" dish would make Jesus weep. It's so good.Finally, for that meat lover, get the honey chicken. It's a bowl full of chicken with a couple pieces of broccoli. No complaints. Manly-power-food right here y'all.Reason 1: Everything tastes fresh and rich. Example: the Thai curries aren't watery coconut milk, they are bursting with flavor--a tidal wave of complexity and craftsmanship rolling over your tongue and stuck in your mind for weeks.Reason 2: Service. Example: I normally go to restaurants and ask staff what I should order. Normally I hear "what is popular," or have indecisive answers juggled about me with indifference. At Thai Lotus, the staff are passionate about the dishes. They will tell you what they like. Example 2: The food comes out fast, even when they are busy. On a night with few people, 5-10 minutes. On a busy night 15-20 minutes. This is food that would take me over an hour to prepare and mine would never taste as good.My only complaint is they are closed on Sundays? Big bummer with me having the weekends off.

All ways a great place to eat...curry puffs are by far the best appetizer

Great ambience and food came out quick!Honestly, hands down, the best Thai food in Reno. I was kind of thrown off by the Panang curry with salmon but oh my GOD. It's the best combo of flavors I've had in a curry.Wide array of spice levels to your taste. Don't hesitate on the spicy spice!

Friendly service is always a great start to a meal! Food was quick and delicious too. We enjoyed the fried pork potstickers, orange chicken, and pineapple fried rice with chicken. Loved it all, but our favorite was the pineapple fried rice!

This place is awesome, I went for their lunch special that includes a variety of curries with salad and some apps. Super tasty. I tried the mango curry with a heat level of 4. It was the perfect level of heat that almost gets hot. Staff were friendly and awesome. Will definitely eat here again.

A busy restaurant that has wonderfully priced weekday lunch specials. These plates include a little salad, a sweet puff and a broth soup. It's even served on a bamboo tray! I enjoyed the avocado and the yellow curry. Of course, it's Thai curry, so some types have more warmth/heat than others, but nothing that will make your eyes water. Unless you request for that! The Thai coffee is popular here.

This restaurant has become one of our favorites for lunch. It has great service and well prepared food with a pleasant and efficient staff. The lunch specials provide a good cross section of Thai favorites that can be customized to appeal to all tastes. They are well priced and pleasantly presented. It is often very busy at noon as many working in the area regularly patronize it, so I recommend trying to get there after 1 pm.

Delicious food! They were able to seat our group right away despite obviously being busy. Then their fantastic food came so fast! Great experience

Portions were reasonable. Lunch specials for about ten dollars are a good deal. Food was fresh and tasty. However, everything was super sweet so beware of the sugar amount in their food. Great service.

First time there. Fabulous food and wonderful service. I had the pineapple salmon in a sweet n sour sauce. Really good. I tried pumpkin curry with chicken, yellow curry with chicken and pineapple Thai jasmine rice. All excellent!!! Will definitely recommend and return.
