My husband and I were on our first trip alone, without our kids in three years. After reading several reviews on different sites I was really looking forward to eating at the Lotus of Siam. Ordered the stuffed chicken wings...I believe they were about $8-$9 for two wings that were overly breaded, not very tasty and the meat inside was quite tough. Had the crispy rice/sour sausage dish (also $8 I believe) which was highly recommended and was very disappointed. A small plate (looked like about a bowl of rice) came out with a few pieces of cabbage that was cut up. I thought it might be similar to something like the Chinese lettuce wraps when I looked at it, but it was quite spicy for a three and very, very salty. The last dish we had was the drunken sea bass on noodles. The noodles were overcooked, but the fish was good. The meal came to $40 which was a RIPOFF!! The only good things out of this meal was the fish and the beer my husband had. Not sure why the last reviewer was so impressed. No ambience and definitely not the best Thai in North America!! We came back and went to Sawasdee in Vancouver for a great Thai meal.
