A great restaurant, which seems to be the general consensus of TripAdvisor! A cute restaurant on the canal with a nice view! I'd always heard about the place but never actually got around to going! My friends and I eventually decided to give it a go a few weekends ago. About 5 courses later I am beyond satisfied with the... More

After living in Hong Kong for over 12 years, I consider myself to be very strict with dimsum quality in the UK. I came across Lotus two years ago and it's now become my go-to for dimsum. I usually go on Saturdays - which gets very busy - and always leave satisfied. The food always feels fresh and cooked to... More

Good dim sum collection - try the Char sui cheong fun and the har gow! Cantonese style roast Duck and Char sui is also authentic! So cheap too and excellent view over Millwall Dock at South Quay / Canary Wharf!

I visited here for a function for around 500 people and to watch England v Uruguay, the food was a buffet which was plentiful and enjoyable, but could not gage how it would be as a restaurant. Overall food was better that the football.

We had our staff do there and booked the top floor. Overall the service was average and the food ok-ish. I have been there twice in the past with friends, but wasn't thrilled. So I had to return to the restaurant because of the staff party. The location is very nice and you can see the canal.

We have been here many times. The floating restaurant looked great from the outside. Inside, the decor was of mediocre standard chinese restaurant variety. The choice of dim sum and dishes on the menu were broad and plentiful. The food was good in quality and quantity.

Went for Father's Day Dim Sum meal here with ten other family members including children. Was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the Dim Sum at the prices and location. Service was friendly and attentive throughout, I live nearby and would definitely return.
