The food is flavourful and healthy. Service was attentive and helpful. Reasonably priced. Order the salad rolls to start. They are the best I've ever had. And I've eaten A LOT of Vietnamese food in my day :) Bravo!

Was with a party of 5 and we were served by the owner. As soon as we walked in loved the little shopping area of authentic vietnamese wares. Come to find out, the proceeds of the sales of these items will be going to charity over in Vietnam. One of us bought a beautiful painting. Then, came supper, and everythimg... More

Their seafood bowl is really good, pad Thai is average, pok pok chicken wings are bland and boring, and their pickled daikon and carrot is ridiculously good!!

First time at Lotus - went for lunch. Décor is very nice - great ambiance in general. Lots of elbow room around the tables and the restaurant is very clean. Service was fast and the staff were helpful and friendly. Ordered several items, including spring rolls and Pho soup starters. Tried two different noodle dishes for the main course. Everything...

The decor drew me in first thing...along with the cleanliness of the place. Even the floors were extremely clean even though it was slushy and not very nice outside. No "tired" decorations here. Everything looked fresh and inviting. The music was easy to listen to with many familiar songs played on a piano with some Carpenters mixed in. Not too... More

All of us had Vermicelli bowls, we all liked the spring rolls, although the rest was disappointing. doesn`t compare to other places in Moncton that serve similar dish. My friends said the chicken was very bland. All of us weren't satisfied with the taste overall. Sitting at the booth was awkward, being short, I had my bowl to my chin... More

I was a big fan of this restaurant's previous incarnation, Viet Bistro. The interior is still beautiful, but the menu is not. I had chicken that looked like it was rejected from a processing plant. Every single one of my favourite menu items from Viet Bistro has been removed. Most appetizers have seafood in them, including spring rolls, with no... More

The decor is just lovely, very elegant. The food was a little dissapointing. I had the pho soup and my husband had a noodle dish that I can't remember the name of. Both dishes listed bean sprouts as an ingredient. When I mentioned to the server that there were no bean sprouts, we were told they were not in season???... More

We've not really eaten at a Vietnamese restaurant before but went as an adventure. They said they could make most dishes gluten free for my wife and that convinced us to try them out. First of all, the décor was sparkling and inviting. We both had dishes that came with sticky rice and they were delicious - mine was bbq... More

Fried pork and vermicelli with an imperial roll. There was more emphasis on the on the cilantro in the salad mix which I liked. And the roll was not too greasy (unlike Viet Dong) and filling. The meat was good. Also had the bubble tea. Had the lychee flavor but it didn't taste like lychee. Did they forget to add... More
