Lauded by food bloggers and critics, Lotus of Siam was rated the best Thai restaurant in the US by now-defunct culinary bible, Gourmet magazine. We might not go that far, but it is certainly a rare and unexpected treat in an otherwise unprepossessing strip mall. Saipin Chutima puts her specialties on the huge and easy-to-read menu, and isn’t afraid to make her food spicy. However, many diners opt for the excellent and super-cheap lunch buffet.
