My wife and I had dinner here in the late afternoon / early evening, having been here several times in the past. We just had a combination plate each and coffee. The combination of chicken fried rice, sweet and sour chicken and chicken chow mien was generous, tasty and well served. Service was excellent with really nice staff taking the... 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

We were in Yarmouth for one night prior to taking a trip to Portland on the Nova Star and we asked some locals for the best chinese in the area and they all said Lotus Garden. Fast friendly service,clean restaurant,large portions.

My husband felt like having Chinese Food and suggested the Lotus Garden. It was my first time there and I was pleasantly surprised. He had the buffet and I ordered off the menu. We were both very satisfied with the service, the food and the price. We'll definitely go again. :)

When you're hungry for deep fried "westernized" Chinese food, this is a good place to go. They have a great brunch that you can really fill up on. The service is questionable though. The last time I went, the waitress tossed the menus on the table and told us what page to find the specials on as she walked away.... More

We used to love this place but since it has been taken over by new owners it is not really the same. Our last few visits have not been as enjoyable as before. The food is not as good and the buffet is ok as long as you get there early. We arrived 1 1/2 hours before the end of... More

Lotus still has the best egg rolls I have ever eaten. The rest of the food I ordered was also good, beef and broccoli, and scallop balls. Although I had wanted all scallop balls when I got my plate I had two scallop and two shrimp. The rice is so-so. But I would eat there again, and get extra egg... More

We had been to the Lotus Garden some time ago and remembered a pleasant experience. This time we had an early Wednesday supper. The restaurant is quite large, well furnished with quintessential Chinese decor, linen tablecloths and comfortable chairs. We were given a warm welcome on arrival, lots of smiles and attention from Sherry, our waitress. Our meal for the... More

I liked the food and the atmos0phere and the staff. We do not go there now as we do not eat MSG and we eat as vegans so this would not be a choice.
