Lotus of Siam’s restaurant in the Commercial Center shut down in September after the roof collapsed back in September, but now the restaurant is about ready to open in a second, temporary location. Expect northern Thai dishes to start serving on Monday, Dec. 11, in the former home of Roy’s Restaurant on Restaurant Row, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
The temporary location originally hoped to be open by Nov. 1 inside the shuttered Roy’s restaurant on East Flamingo Road. Breslin Builders transformed the 7,921-square-foot space for Lotus of Siam.
Most of the upgrades are cosmetic or necessary repairs to 17-year-old building, but Breslin added a new wall to close off the open kitchen, plus new paint, flooring, equipment, upgrades to the existing bar and the creation of a “new wine room in the private dining area to house their extensive wine collection.”
The contractor also revealed, once it finishes work on the Flamingo Road project, it will then turn its attention to remodeling the Commercial Center site, a must-visit destination for Thai cuisine since November 1999.
The new location at 620 E. Flamingo Road plans to be open for lunch Mondays through Fridays from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and dinner from 5:30 to 10 p.m.
