Lotus of Siam - Menu Recommendations?

We're in from Canada next week and have made reservations for Tuesday night. I've been skimming through the reviews and am a little panicked as some recent comments are less than stellar...
That said, I cannot "not" go...the lure of such legendary Thai food is just too much!!

So - hoping I can rely on fellow foodies to make some suggestions for us. I'm into quite hot - but my hubby is less so...so a "medium" spice level would be sufficient...(my hot sauce on the side!). We eat everything but are less likely to order fish...shrimp being the exception to that. My husband loves Pad Thai, but it seems the noodle dishes are not as impressive...

I've heard about the sausage/crispy rice dish and am intrigued...let's assume you had to choose an appetizer, plus 2, possibly 3 mains and sharing a dessert. What would you recommend?

Thanks...looking forward to your thoughts!

Fine Dining in Hamilton/Burlington Area?

I've heard fantastic things about the Carriage House - menu looks terrific. Thank you!!!!!

Fine Dining in Hamilton/Burlington Area?

Well - it's a pretty broad spectrum for my husband and I, who are up to anything that comes recommended but if I think of my in-laws whose anniversary we are celebrating I would go with: some solid red meat choices (think Prime Rib or Filet Mignon) and not too "chi-chi" as this would intimidate them to some degree. I would say that Lord Nelson in Burlington is slightly out of our budget. We've recently been to Lord Byron's in Waterdown which I thought was good food-wise, but quite dated in terms of decor. Good question...hope this helps with your thoughts!

We're celebrating a 40th anniversary - party of six...and are looking for recommendations for a memorable dining experience. We've been considering 1505 North (Burlington), Rousseau House (Ancaster), Lo Presti Maxwell's (Hamilton) and Edgewater Manor (Stoney Creek). Having not been to any of these (we tend to go in to Toronto for fine dining) your thoughts are appreciated! Some of the other threads were more about general good food in Hamilton but we'd like some more specific feedback! Thanks!!!
