Great Thai food. This restaurant with the quality of the food served would be a hit anywhere. Be sure to make reservations in advance as you may not get a seat at the bar. It has always been packed even after they moved to the new and much bigger space.

We have been coming to the Lotus Pad for over 10 years. We have eagerly awaited the new location. Before we dined there last week with out of town guests from NYC I read the reviews on here. I got very concerned - very very concerned. Most of them are wring. We think the Lotus Pad is better than ever.... More

We dined last night here after a long day of skiing the mountain and loved it! The food and cocktails were delicious. The service was even better! Our server Sarah was the best! Definitely make sure a visit here is in the cards during your visit to Big Sky.

This place used to be hip and unique (wild chef viewable as he performed for the clients)...now it is a basic American suburban-like Thai restaurant. We placed our order promptly, after 50 minutes of no attention from our server, the host dropped by to mumble an apology ("lost ticket") stating that the appetizer would be "on us". The dinner (noodles... More

You can bring your own beer or wine! I ordered the cashew chicken and it was great, I had enough for lunch the next day! Service was wonderful even when we just ate at the bar.

This modern and lively place serves High quality and very tasty Thai food. The staff was great, the vibe of the new location was cool, and food was excellent. Try the spring rolls and the crying tiger wagyu steak for sure!

Last night in Big Sky- glad we waited to eat at Lotus Pad. Food was delicious, fresh ingredients and great portion size! It's BYO so bring your own alcohol. Only downside was there confirmation system- they would not return our call due to it being an international number and we therefore had to wait over an hour for our table!

Good food and service. Huge portions! The food comes out when it's ready, so everyone doesn't get their meal at the same time, which in our opinion was just fine. Would rather have our food come out while it's fresh and hot. Only thing was that they didn't have their liquor license yet, but we were allowed to bring in... More

The Good - the food. Not the best Thai I've ever eaten, but not bad for the middle of Montana. I would have given 4 stars for the food. The Bad - the service. Waitress was inattentive, food was brought out from the kitchen one item at a time. Almost 10 minutes elapsed after the first entree was brought before... More

The Lotus Pad moved from a much smaller seating location to a more modern, more seeting location. However, it is strongly, strongly recommended to make reservations. We went early enough in the evening to be seated without reservations. Others have mentioned the BYOB, not a concern for us. Two of the gals had an iced Chai tea, very expensive! We... More
