Lotus of Siam

953 East Sahara Avenue, Suite A5
Las Vegas, NV 89104
(702) 735-3033

We've heard such good things about this place that we knew that it had to be one of our destinations this trip. Commonly listed as one of the best restaurants in Vegas and best Thai restaurants in the United States, Lotus of Siam is a popular spot. We went after work and as the taxi was dropping us off, my heart sank a little. There was a line about 30 customers long. How many tables were inside? How big is this place? How long will the wait be? Fortunately, we were all here for the first seating as dinner service wasn't open yet. So once the doors opened, we waited about five minutes for the hostess to seat us. Not too bad!

The menu is quite extensive and for our first time here, we had our waitress recommend dishes to us. We wanted to know what the favourites and popular plates were. First up, we had the Nam Kao Tod. A crispy rice mixed with sour minced pork sausages, green onions, fresh chilies, ginger, peanuts, and lime juice.

Oh my goodness this was so delicious! Flavours everywhere and yet so refreshing despite the heat it gave. I've been trying to find a version of this in Toronto lately, but nothing compares.
Next up, the crispy duck with drunken noodles (pan fried flat rice noodles) topped with fresh homemade chili and Thai basils.
The braised short rib with panang, a Thai style red cream curry sauce with cognac.
Howard was still feeling hungry so our waitress recommended this last dish for us. Sadly, we didn't catch the name of it, but it was delicious just the same.

I wish I could have eaten more, I wasn't feeling in tip top shape that night, but couldn't deny how great the food was. I was so jealous seeing the large tables around us because they got to sample so many more bites.

We can unanimously agree that this was our favourite meal of our trip. We highly recommend you visit Lotus of Siam!
