Delicious food (except the spring roll...worst spring rolls I've ever had...dry and flavorless), otherwise the pork larb app, cashew chicken, and pork belly were amazing. Jennifer provided great service and friendly conversation.

We enjoy the unique flavors of each dish. The only improvement would be to have more protein... the pork belly seemed a bit light as well as the chicken in our two other dishes. Other than that, it is our favorite spot in Big sky- delicious!

Great Thai food in the heart of Big Sky Montana. Unlike our last time there, the service was speedy and attentive. Food is always great. If you can, sit at the counter where you can watch the food being prepared. Quite a show!!

Reservation process was very easy and we were seated on time. That’s where it ended. We were seated very close to the entrance. We asked to move but they said “no because we need that table to make a large table for a group coming later.” The table was never used, so it was cold and noisy for our entire meal. Service was extremely slow- we arrived at 6:45 and left after 9! We only had 2 appetizers and a curry with brown rice for 2 people. Food was bland. Staff was apologetic but one of orders had rotten lettuce in it (they comped it-thank you) but we were charged extra for eggplant in the curry which was left out and they brought white rice instead of brown, which was exchanged. I saw our waitress taking orders, serving food, clearing tables and mixing drinks! No wonder service was slow- how much can one person do? They need to get their act together and make the authentic food they used to make.

We have been at this restaurant every year coming to Big Sky since 2017. This is the first time we were disappointed. We have brought wine in for a corkage fee for several of the years but this year we’re told this didn’t happen. The food was bland. The drunken noodles tasted like pad Thai. Curry was like bland. Mild marked dishes were sweet. Service was good other than the wine issue. One of the 6 enjoyed their meal. Unfortunately we likely won’t return again.

This place is incredible. When your entire family gets all different entrees and everyone says “This is one of the best meals I’ve ever had,” that says it all. The whole staff, atmosphere, menu, and drinks were spectacular. We made a point to thank the cooking staff too, do not miss this place! Murphy’s, Virginia Beach

I have always loved lotus pad. I was relieved to see they are still in business during this pandemic. I really hope they stay in Big Sky. Their food is amazing, not just with an authentic flavor, but creative and new dishes every time I’m there. I fully recommend going if you’ve not been before.

Food was excellent! But service was awful! The hostess had to take our drink and app order, our server was also the bartender so he was trying to make drinks for the whole place and had 3 tables. We ordered our 2nd round of drinks when we got our entrees and the drinks came after we had finished dinner and was ready to Pay and leave.

Our server was great and the food tasted great. But all of our meals cane 5-10 minutes apart from each other and our small child got their food last
