Our favorite Thai restaurant anywhere. Great menu/drinks/staff. Drunken noodles are awesome. fresh basil rolls excellent. We go every year. Moving to a larger building so hopefully will be easier to get reservations. reservations are a must.

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at our hotel and it stood up to everything they said it would be and more. It was the best Thai Asian cuisine we've ever had!! We had a toddler with us as well and the staff was so nice and accommodating. It is small with only 6 tables plus seating chef side... More

8 of us got takeout on a recent ski trip....was excellent, and on time....busy little place inside, open kitchen, kinda loud and steamy, but cool. Had the pad thai, chicken red curry, and a pork belly dish, with lots of rice, and chicken satay for the kids. All were excellent

Recommended by our hotel staff and Lotus did not disappoint!! Small restaurant...I would recommend reservations but we sat at the bar and watched the chef(s). We tried several of things to eat and a Green Dragon, their signature drink (if it's not their signature it should be!!). Excellent place!!

There's a good variety of Thai dishes that everyone can find something they like. It's fun to share the family style portions or have leftovers for the next day. Vegan, vegetarian and meat eaters all have several options.

The food is fine, but very expensive for Thai. The restaurant is same and loud. Most annoying is the 10% "gratuity" that is tacked on to carry out orders. For just 5% more you might as well get table service. I wouldn't rush back to eat here as it just isn't worth it.

I was looking forward to visiting, but the restaurant did not live up to expectations. The food was mediocre at best. I could see the chefs working hard, but the food was nothing special. However, the prices are a bit high, perhaps because this is a resort area. Also, they charge a 10% gratuity for bills over $50, even for... More

We were shoe-horned into the restaurant one evening after a day of site-seeing. (The tight quarters will get better when the restaurant moves to their new space currently under construction.) The food was good but a bit pricey for what we're used to paying for Thai food.

It if is good enough for JT then it is good enough for me. Great food. Great reputation. You wouldn't think that Thai food could be good in Montana. But surprise! The food is delicious! The chef trained in Thailand and brought her skills back to Big Sky. Yummy!!

Thank E J
