Northern Thai Cuisine. A unique experience of spices, herbs, and flavors only found in traditional Northern Thai culture. Before the James Beard Award and the Gourmet Magazine review, Lotus of Siam was a small little hole in the wall located in Commercial Center in Las Vegas. November 1999 was the month Chef Saipin and her husband Bill took over Lotus of Siam. Since then, Thai food became an adventure for those willing to step out of their comfort zones for Asian Cuisine. Featuring OVER 300 selections of wine.
“Mmm. That’s perfection, man.”
Anthony Bourdain – Parts Unknown
“It was the best Thai meal I had ever eaten. I went back for the next four or five meals in a row, and I almost cried when I had to get on a plane back to New York.”
