Excellent food, portions are large enough to share. Stay away from the "Thai hot" unless you really like it hot.

Reward yourself and please your palate with dinner at Lotus Thai Grille on the land-side of Surf City. I typically sit at the small bar in back so I can get a seat and have an opportunity to strike up conversations with vacationers or weekenders, like myself. Have met the owner's mother a couple of times who complains that her son does not charge enough for the high quality ingredients that go into his recipes! The Shrimp Curry and the Ginger Shrimp are favorites. Portions are large enough for two meals.

Even though this is the best time of the year for dining out in Surf City, we decided to do takeout. We ordered the basil beef and red pepper chicken. Both dishes were very good, tender meat and lots of flavor.

Had high hopes for this place but the food just didn't come through. Started with two soups which weren't bad but seemed more like spicy leftovers concoctions (which is not entirely a bad thing but these were just okay). A truly bad sign was that the waitress whispered that the beef was always overdone. That in mind, we got green curry with shrimp and pad Thai with pork. Both disappointing. The green curry lacked depth from probably too little coconut milk. The shrimp were tiny, not local, most likely the frozen kind sold from a Walmart supplier. The pork in the pad Thai was tough as shoe leather. The food came out so quickly and scalding that it seemed suspiciously microwaved. Service was very good (maybe the server should warn diners of overcooked pork as well). Finally, the prices are too high. That curry was not worth $16. Too bad. Oh well.

Very good Thai food (and we have eaten many meals in Thailand, so feel we can compare), excellent service and nice decor. My husband and I have eaten here twice now and have liked it very much. When my husband asked for "Thai hot," the food actually was that hot! It is tucked into a strip mall, but worth the effort to find.
