Need better dessert choices

We enjoy the buffet, although it is hit or miss sometimes. The desserts in the buffet are seriously lacking. Ice cream frozen so hard you can not scoop it out, jello or instant pudding. The desserts do not reflect the price that is charged for buffet.

We always take Mom out on mothers day and this was a great selection. The staff were quite knowledgeable and friendly. One of the best places to eat in Yarmouth for sure. Will be back for another great meal.

Looks great but food got an after taste it shouldn't have. The sauces tastes more like gravy. Do they even use gravy in China? Not very authentic...

Not the first bad experience we've had with this place but definitely the worst one yet. Ordered take out from them today for my Birthday dinner. Got the food home (a 20 minute drive one way) to discover they had messed up our order. We ordered 2 combo platters and a chef's specialty dish. Got it home to discover the... More

Busy place and for a reason, they do serve good food and will make it right if anything is wrong on your plate.

My family and I regularly eat at Lotus Garden and have been for many years. The menu is very varied and everything is always delivered quickly, nice and hot, and consistently. The eggrolls are delicious and the plum sauce is very nice and a bit sweet, which is the way I like it. I order take out from there a... More

My husband and I dropped in for a meal while we were celebrating our 41st Wedding Anniversary. The staff were friendly but could use more courtesy toward their clients. She dropped the menu on our table and pointed to the special for the evening. When she returned she asked us what we wanted. Otherwise the meal was delicious, nice and... More
