Excellent dim sum and evening meals. The prices are very reasonable espcially the Dom Perignon which is just a fraction more than the supermarket price. The restaurant is situated on one of the inlets off the river Thames, so you always get a cool breeze coming of the waters. The waiting staf f are polite and attentive and they all... More

The restaurant offers great quality food, in a beautiful setting on a boat. The staff are friendly and very helpful. My family went for a meal for father's birthday and the staff was really great and made the evening perfect for us. The portions are decent, but most importantly the quality is good also. The beef with black bean sauce... More

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

The food was more or else force fed with the anticipation and eagerness of the staff for us to order, once we received our starters... 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.
