Some specific LOS questions

kestral | Nov 17, 2010 06:29 AM

It looks like I am finally going to get to Lotus of Siam on my trip in a few weeks.

My friend wants to try it, and she has never had Thai food.

I've enjoyed reviewing the threads with suggested dishes, but I have a few specific questions.

If we go at lunch - what IS on the buffet? What types of dishes? I am wondering if it would be a way for my friend to try a wider variety of Thai dishes. No matter what, I am ordering the sour sausage crispy rice app and the tamarind beef!

Are dishes served family style - like you would find in a Chinese restaurant - or will we be eating off of each other's plates if we share? I'm thinking of rounding up another friend or two so we can try more dishes, but some of them may not like the idea of sampling "their" dishes.

Finally - I know this is so subjective, but can someone offer a guideline of the 1 to 9 scale of heat? It seems as time goes on I have less of a tolerance for spicy. I used to like jarred "hot" salsa, now I go for medium.
