We arrived early and was warmly welcomed, the food was quite prompt and teased great. I'm not into spicy food, but the chilli shredded beef was plane with only the smallest amount of chilli in it, how ever this was the only let down, every thing else (think we ate the whole menu between us) was great. and the Squid...

Just got back from a great meal. The food was freshly cooked and there was so much choice. The buffet menu is fab. My 6 year old daughter only chose to go Oriental for some satay chicken but ended up eating crabs claw, squid, mussels and much more. She tried almost everything we ordered! Both my children said it was... More

The food is incredible. Unlimited and made to order fresh and bespoke... insanely tasty. The only thing that beats it are the staff. Seriously they were amazingly nice and a credit to the industry. This place should be Poole's top eat!

We paid £15 per head, and you can choose as many dishes from the starters, mains, deserts etc as you wish. Food is made to order and is excellent! Took 5 work colleges here and all would come back again! Salt and pepper prawns are a must!

The Lotus Lounge is in a great location for meeting friends as near a car park and train station. There are round tables and the food is tapas style, so you can order as many little dishes as you like, which means everyone shares and talks and it makes for a great sociable evening. It is great value for money... More

I have reviewed the Lotus Lounge previously as being an 'average experience'. After visiting last night with a group of friends I can't believe it was the same restaurant! The food was much better. It looked/tasted a lot fresher than last time and everything was well presented. We all selected items individually and shared them - just enough in each... More

We went on a Tuesday evening which understandably, was very quiet. The restaurant has been recently refurbished but the décor has a bland, sparse appearance and there is a lack of atmosphere. The waitress didn't have a clue about any of the dishes on the menu but was polite. We paid £35.00 for as much as we wanted to eat... More

I have been to Lotus Lounge three times now and I cannot fault it in any way. The all you can eat menu is freshly cooked and has a wide range of dishes in tapas size which is perfect as it means you can try a few things from the menu. The service is exceptional, especially one lady ( blonde... More

I phoned earlier in the week to make a reservation. Although they were closed at the time, my call was returned promptly and my booking was taken by a lovely cheerful young lady. Although I wanted a booking for 7, she advised to come in a little earlier as they had several large parties. On arrival we were shown to... More

Popped in here with friends Saturday night and were mighty lucky to get a table. The food was fabulous, the staff were absolutely lovely and the bill was very reasonable as there was a fair bit of wine consumed. Treat yourselves and make a booking now, will definitely go again next time we are in Poole.
