Chef Beni Velázquez reviews Tom kha kai soup at Lotus of Siam
$$ | Thai
Downtown
1 Review
"This soup is deliciously creamy yet spicy. The flavor of the coconut milk is transformed by the smoky spiciness of the fried chilies. Rounded out by chicken and lemongrass, this soup is superb."
Chef Mary Sue Milliken reviews Koi soy at Lotus of Siam
$$ | Thai
Downtown
1 Review
"The koi soy, or Issan-style steak tartare, is my must-have dish whenever I dine at off-Strip favorite Lotus of Siam. Somehow, I never mind its explosive spiciness because it is so well-balanced and has so many crunchy herbs. The roasted rice powder gives it texture, while the hand-cut meat is lean and so very beefy. Don’t miss any of the Northern Thai specialties that are chef Deng and her husband Bill's sweet spot."
Chef Ben Jenkins reviews En Tuan at Lotus of Siam
$$ | Thai
Downtown
1 Review
"Lotus’ En Tuan soup is to die for. Slices of slow-cooked beef and beef tendon are served in a perfectly balanced broth. This can be a little spicy, so be careful how you order. I normally go with 7, but I’m pretty good with heat."
Chef Eric Klein reviews Spicy sliced beef salad at Lotus of Siam
$$ | Thai
Downtown

"I love this dish because it's fresh, spicy unusual, and just great. It's different from what I've had before. The salad comes with eggplant, chilies, lemongrass, and herbs."
