Skillful cooks know that a handful of eggs and peanuts can add flavor to many plates of noodles, most elephant breakfasts, and every formal wig. Dine in style with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of authentic Thai cuisine and two glasses of champagne (a $16 value) at Lotus Thai Restaurant and Lounge in Brooklyn (a $46 total value).

The chefs at Lotus mix salty, bitter, and sweet tastes together to create a menu of stimulating dishes. Begin with a choice of hot or cold appetizers, such as beef tartare ($7) or crispy dumplings ($5.95), which battle on the podium of your taste buds before negotiating a truce at room temperature. Classic flavor cocktails, such as the kaprow, layer tactical quantities of chili, garlic, and pepper over a choice of three sautéed meats ($7.50+), and adventurous fare such as the Squid in Love lets its titular mollusk dance with shrimp and scallop paramours on a light-up floor of roasted chili ($16). Mock duck graces the vegetarian-friendly Buddah Delight ($10) and may also appear among the drunken noodles ($10.50), which also features culinary performances from thai basil, chili, and Philip Seymour Hoffman’s stash of Oscar-winning garlic. Diners can sip from two brimming glasses of champagne as they take in Lotus’s illuminated pink panels, Thai sculptures, and décor selected by native Thai designers.

Lotus Thai Restaurant & Bar

Having developed his expertise in Thai gastronomy in Thailand, Colorado, and New York City over the course of more than 20 years, chef Chai Chunton now flaunts his culinary skills in Lotus Thai Restaurant & Bar. Vines of steam rise from time-tested noodle, vegetarian, meat, and seafood dishes, curling toward nostrils with the hot, sour, sweet, and salty notes of the region's cookery. Adorned by a design team from Thailand, the lounge's dining room is laced with leather booths, ornate Eastern flourishes, and antique chopstick sharpeners. Against the sonic backdrop of occasional evening DJ sets, events in a private room launch the sounds of revelry against exposed-brick walls and a collaborative painting by acclaimed artists Pairoj Pichetmetakul and Kittisak Chontong.


The food and the ambiance were very nice. It is nicely decorated with separate rooms. The food was awesome.
