“Great Thai food”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

Lotus Thai has a great ambience and the beautiful murals and Thai music add to the atmosphere making one feel as if you are in Thailand. We agree that Lotus Thai serves the best sushi and their Thai dishes are amazing as well. My personal favourites are the Rainbow California rolls, Kaeng Massaman and Singha beer. We often return to this restaurant for a special evening with family or friends, or for a romantic evening just for the two of us.

“Best Sushi in Pretoria”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

Lotus Thai has a wonderful cosy atmosphere. Their sushi tastes the best and is the best value for money in Pretoria. Their staff is very friendly. The coktails are great. I recommend the kamakazi...

“Amazing sushi”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

A large and varied Thai menu, although we all had sushi. The sushi is probably the best I've had in Pretoria, and if you sit in the section with the sushi bar you not only get to watch as the chef prepares your order (surprisingly quickly), but you're also very likely to receive something special and unique added to your plate with his compliments. Not a large wine list, but sufficient choice offered.
Friendly, fast service and great food means we will be back for sure.

“The Faerie Glen branch better than Brooklyn”
Reviewed 23 March 2012

One of the few restaurants around that really really bother with interior decor and general ambiance. Very authentic, most of the people working there are from Bangkok and the food is def authentic (we've been to thailand so can compare). The sushi used to be the best in the Pta East but recently they have enlarged and expanded and with that a slight dip in quality as they have to churn out more quantity, I suppose. Still on a quiet night you can get some of the prettiest sushi around.

They also usually have at least one Thai beer brand to choose from.

The main meals are not super generous, more medium sized portions but super tasty.

We've had a super green (straight from Bangkok) waitress once with whom the communication part didn't go so smooth but she was earnest and with patience managed to figure each other out.
