What our customers say

Reviews

Lotus Cafe serves some of the best food you can find. I have eaten their food for years. Until this year, I have never tried their Crispy Chicken Scallion. The Crispy Chicken Scallion is one of the best Chinese meals I have had (maybe the best outside of my favorite Chinese restaurant in NYC).
Marc White
Lotus is a great local choice for quality Chinese Food! They are of good quality, and priced very competitive to other comparable stores. We have been going there for years, and will continue the tradition!
Michael R. Ingelsby
Food was fresh, hot and delicious! Staff was courteous and brought the food to your table. Very clean kitchen and restaurant. Will definitely be back.
Jonnie Paez
I have been a customer of this restaurant all during quarantine and they have been AMAZING!! The food, the service and the smiles and greetings I get when my food is delivered have all been such a bright spot in this dark time. Highly recommend!!
Denise Winston
Best curry sauce I've ever tasted on curry chicken and their proportions are great! Fried rice was a little too salty in my opinion but still very good.
