Restaurant in New York
A little piece of Bangkok located in a landmark lower 5th Avenue building in Greenwich Village.
Only opened in the spring of 2011, the restaurant has undergone a name change this year from Lotus of Siam to Lotus NY. This is a delightful up-market restaurant that has a great buzz about it coupled with traditional Northern Thai style dishes that are really superb. We also found the all Thai staff to be attentive and the service was excellent.
The food was beautifully presented and had a crisp clean and fresh taste with a good selection of appetizers, noodles, Thai Curries as well as seafood and meat.
We decided to go for a mix of smaller and larger dishes and share so we could try lots of things. So we had the Mango and Sticky Rice, Shrimp with Duck, stuffed boneless Chicken Wing, Chicken Satay, Pork with Basil and mild yellow Curry with Chicken – and there were only two of us! Needless to say we did not have a dessert.
They have a very comprehensive wine list as well as an assortment of cocktails and beers from Thailand, Japan, the US and England. We opted for the Singha Thai Lager, which was actually very good. They offer a good range of wines by the glass starting at around $10 from Europe and California. They also offer half and full bottles across the list, which you don’t see often. Half bottles start at around $20 and whole bottles from $38 upwards.
Dinner for two of us came to $46 per head excluding service.
The restaurant is only open for dinner from 5:30pm to 11pm Monday through Saturday.
