Lotus of Siam is that perfect level of lively where you don’t need to show up in - and inevitably stain - your “going out” clothes, but it’s bright and colorful and you kind of feel like everyone is there for the same party. Just make sure you get a reservation because you’ll want to bring a group and this place definitely fills up. Stick with the Northern Thai and chef’s choice portions of the menu, which include dishes like Chilean sea bass and drunken noodle with prawns. It’s hard to go wrong though, as long as you order enough food that the server starts to look at you strangely.
