Since 1999, Chef Saipin Chutima and her family have owned and operated the world-renowned Lotus of Siam in Las Vegas, Nevada. Chef Saipin’s cooking revolves around the Northern Thai recipes passed down from generations of her family, distinctive from Bangkok style for its palette of herbs and spices and coconut-less curries. Praised by a parade of respected food critics and industry leaders from Jonathan Gold to Anthony Bourdain, Padma Lakshmi, and Ming Tsai, Chef Saipin’s accolades include the coveted James Beard award for Southwest Region Chef. She is widely credited for popularizing Northern Thai in the U.S., while the Lotus wine program, under the supervision of her husband Bill, has won equal praise, winning the Wine Spectator Restaurant Award for nearly two decades. Lotus of Siam continues to pursue excellence and industry leadership with original recipes, quality sourcing, and responsible practices. Lotus is proud to announce its 3rd location at Red Rock Casino Resort opening this fall.
