All the menu items are exceptionally good. I especially like the green papaya salad and the seafood salad; the noodle and soup dishes are also great. They have a large selection of lunch specials, too. Oat & Jern (Jenn) are very gracious hosts.
After switching ownership awhile back I returned to Thai Lotus (which I had originally given up on after several visits which proved a disappointment). Today the place has great food They actually make it spicy when you say you want spicy - sometimes I feel like Thai places think I'm a tenderfoot with the chiles because I'm a white woman and subsequently I end up with pad thai that's about as spicy as Wonder Bread.
The old standards are great (i.e. Panang curry, spring rolls, pad thai, green papaya salad) and the more unusual dishes are fab as well. The nice little sticky rice desserts cool off your mouth and satisfy sweet tooth like me. Waitstaff is very friendly and attentive. Sweet homey ambiance, especially for a strip mall place.
