Everyone I take there falls in love with the place! They have the best house special soup with chicken! Now my friends go there on their own because they love it so much! The value for your dollar is amazing!

My wife and I were first introduced to Lotus Gardens over 20 by some friends. We come often for a quiet dinner, or to grab some take out. The owners have always focussed on serving great food and take great pride in that. Don't be fooled by the looks of the building from the outside. Lotus Gardens provides fresh, tasty,... More

We have been going to this chinese restaurant at least once a month for quite some time. Food has always been great - never disappointed. Have tried other chinese restaurants but always come back to this one.

We have been ordering out from this restaurant weekly for ages. The food is always consistently good. It is never greasy and I can especially recommend the singapore vermicelli. We have from time to time tried other places but never experienced anything matching Lotus Gardens. London's hidden gem. Good value.

I would say that Lotus Garden is my favourite choice when I decide to have Chinese food. The dishes are excellent and generous and the restaurant is clean and small enough to have a family feel to it. I would not hesitate to recommend Lotus Garden to anyone who wanted really superb Chinese cuisine.

Excellent food, pleasant service, no ambiance to speak of. I had the Cantonese Chow Mein. Very nice. Ingredients were fresh and well cooked. The servers did not know what it was, but quickly ran to the kitchen and came back with the answer. Was a great choice.

This is my favorite Chinese food restaurant ever. It is fresh, tasty, and only the best parts used. The chef is very particular about what goes into his food, only the best. I have lived in many parts of Canada and without a doubt, in my opinion, this is the best take-out I have ever had. I love the sechwan,... More

average menu, reasonable prices, decent portions. Really good chicken balls with just a light coating of batter. Will go again. Good soups... Competent staff, but not very friendly.
