A small place in a little strip mall, this spot is unassuming and like many great finds, you follow your gut and it leads you to something good. We were greeted by a sweet elderly Thai lady who brought us menus. Another local Thai lady struck up a conversation with us right away and helped us decide what to order.... More

We tried this restaurant after eating next door for lunch. Ordered an appetizer and one entree for two people and had leftovers. Ample portions, good flavors and an authentic menu. Give it a try.

Lotus Thai was temporarily closed in April due to problems with cockroach infestations. They received the emergency closure after failing a random health inspection by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation. According to the DBPR report, more than 60 dead roaches were found in the kitchen and buffet area and more than 20 live roaches were found throughout... More

Our family likes this place. The food is very good. The portion sizes tend to be a little smaller than the other Thai restaurants we frequent. The restaurant is very clean, and the staff is about as friendly as you'll find at almost any other Thai restaurant. One of the few Thai restaurants in the County that are open on... More

The food was very tasty and the staff was friendly too. I went there during lunch and the buffet was excellent. I sampled a little if everything and was not disappointed with any of the food. I especially loved the chicken curry. If you are looking for some good food at the right price then you need to give this... More

Not my favorite but not bad either. Very friendly, good value and good service. Clean, not busy when we went twice. My friend ordered since she knows the place better than me.

Good thai place packed into a strip mall in Mary Esther. I would highly recommend the lunch buffet - very good (not outstanding) thai food for the price.

Ate here with the wife on 10/10. Excellent and fast service. Mild food for medium, I believe they are cautious so if you generally like food on the spicier side then ask for Hot instead of medium and if you like mild ask for medium. Fried rice was also very tasty. Entrees are priced about $10 each so with appetizer... More

The food was pretty good. Not the best Thai I've ever had, but I wasn't disappointed and the price was good.

Staff is genuine and welcoming, which when coupled with cheap beer (very limited selection, although) and delicious Thai makes for an enjoyable meal. My wife and I enjoy grabbing a quick bite and a good buzz while watching whatever Thai show comes on their satellite (subbing in your own English dialogue can make this quite amusing). If you're looking for... More
