Had chicken pad Thai, the worst I have ever had! I have traveled a lot and it tasted like sweet and sour chicken pad Thai and no peanuts just horrible!

Their Thai soup with shrimp is outstanding. I like the mushu pork as well. The rest is fine, but not outstanding to my taste. You might not agree. Service is usually friendly and as fast as possible.

We stopped for carryout - food was bland - not spicy at all - we realized they didn't ask us our heat level preference as we are accustomed to at Thai on the Mainland.

Had good food there. Never disappointed. Fast and very reasonable. Back of mall with tables in mall. Be careful with the meals marked spicy because the peppers can burn a hole in your tongue. Meals around $10 and well worth it.

Found this place the second day I was in Princeville. The Hot and Sour Soup is excellent although I did add extra heat. The garlic sea bass was also one of my favorites. Not only do the tourists love it many of the locals come all the time. One local said his wife was Thai and she loves the food... More

We were really satisfied with our lunch at Lotus Garden. We were able to customize our order and created an excellent dish of our own! My husband ordered the seafood fried rice minus the seafood, add pork. It was amazing! I ordered the Pad Thai. In my opinion, it was just average. The portion sizes are huge. We could have... More

Great place to grab good a lunch, and it is reasonably priced. It isn't a large place, but a lot o the locals took their lunch outside to eat at the benches spaced throughout the outside mall.

Hidden away in a food court in the middle of a shopping center is this place. Their menu went exotic (my wife & I) & finished mild (for the grandkid's) & reasonably priced too. Nightly entertainment provided by the food court, tables were clean, chickens roaming (of course) this was a welcome surprise as our condo had no restaurant .

While strolling through the Princeville Center we were looking for a place for lunch. We passed several options. At the end of our quest to find a restaurant, we discovered The Lotus Garden Chinese & Thai Cusine. Our first reaction was to turn around and not give it a second look. The small customer area is just to place an... More
