Came a few months ago and was great, visited this month and was just as good, staff were better this visit and although our waiter seemed quite new and shy, he was attentive and polite, lovely quality of food once again and although portions of our main dishes seemed quite small at first, was just enough for the 3 of...

We went for my birthday on the 12th February just me and my fiancé. It was really quiet. Just us and 2 other tables. Service was amazing, we ordered and it would come boiling hot 2 minutes later. Food was good you could try everything and then reorder it as many times as you like. Would definitely go again.

We had ventured there by my recommendation for a birthday party only 5 of us and although a Saturday evening the place was busy and noisy. The selection of starters although looked good were very bland and had no taste. We complained about the main course although had more flavour the beef and the prawns were chewy. Despite them bringing... More

For ease we all had the excellent value fixed price buffet and could find no fault with any of dishes, all fresh and very tasty. Basically they... More

This was really yummy, the food was much fresher than a buffet type all you can eat and they bring you tapas size portions so you can try everything and have more of what you liked. We will definitely be back.

I have to the Lotus Lounge three times now have had an enjoyable experience each visit. I like the way that you cab order as many times as you like and have as much as like, just like a normal buffet but not going up and getting the food yourself. I really enjoy it here and have taken my family... More

Well first thing I can think of to say is it was a bit of a let down. The staff were pleasant enough but when I asked for a pint of lager I was told they only sell bottled beer. now that's one of my pet hates, a restaurant that doesn't sell draught lager. They think by doing that they'll... More

Brilliant to be able to order what ever you like off the menu for a set price per head.... Your party can then taste lots of dishes. I have lived in Asia and can say this food was authentic and delicious!
