Las Vegas: What to Order at Lotus of Siam, One of the Best Thai Restaurants in America

You don't have to be a food insider in Las Vegas to know about Lotus of Siam. Despite its unlikely location in a non-descript strip mall, the outstanding and authentic food at Lotus of Siam has garnered attention from countless national media outlets, including the title of Best Thai Restaurant in the United States from the late Gourmet magazine.

So the question isn't whether to go—you should (run, don't walk)—it's what to eat when you get there. With a menu of over 150 choices ranging from classic curries and noodle dishes to Northern Thai specialties and signature Lotus creations, there is no way to eat more than a small fraction of what sounds good in a single visit. If you're a Vegas local, this is easily solved with repeat visits.
