This cozy 40-seater restaurant is located along Jalan Besar, on the corner of Hindoo Road. Situated road facing with full height windows, interior is nicely decorated with Indochinese motifs & artworks, airs retro Thai ballads & classics, with occasional loud traffic throttle from the road, bring me fond memories of settings in Bangkok districts.
I find the overall experience to be pleasant, and the food reminds me much of Chinese Thai style culinary from Yaowarat. Flavors & price point should appeal to the local palates & wallets. If diners don’t want the sweaty experience of dining at Berseh Food Centre, Lotus Thai offers cooling respite from our tropical climate. Needless to say, loyal fans of Butter Studio, just next door, now have good reason to pop in for a taste of Thailand.
