Great selection of dishes, great staff

Went here for the first time last night as a birthday surprise for my mum. The food was excellent and there was lots of it. We were in a party of 6 and the starters were beautifully presented on share style platters. After that, the food just kept on coming. It was a great way of trying new... read more

We had booked a Thai meal somewhere else, but on arrival found it "closed for refurbishment"! (Moonlight flit, anyone?) The Lotus Lounge (Thai/Chinese) wasn't far away so we thought we'd give it a try. We're very glad we did, and we'll go there again. For less than £15 each (Sun-Thurs, a little more on the weekend), you get a five-course... More

Love love love it here!! The best Chinese/Thai by far!! There's such a wide range of food you'll be spoilt for choice! Abit pricey but it's worth it as a special treat!

Google said the opening times were 5-11pm got there at 5:15 to be told it wasn't going to be open for another 30mins when questioned on the opening time being 5pm we were told that all the Internet times and menus are wrong! Great communication with customers...NOT! p.s what restaurant opens at 5:45pm??

Well what can I say. The staff was very friendly and very helpful too. The place is very clean and spacious. The meals came out very quickly even though the place was full. So it's worth booking up so you won't be disappointed. The food was brought out nice and hot and very tasty. When ever I'm out there again... More

Came with friends from work. Loved the food, service and atmosphere. It is nicer in here when it's slightly quieter as it is so popular it tends to get very busy and noisy so not always ideal to have a chat, but this visit was great all round!

Having been told how great this place is I was seriously disappointed! Food was 1000% not authentic, food definitely not cooked in clean oil and the temperature must have been severely lacking as everything was super greasy! Starters came with a mini pool of oil which really put us off! Main course was by no means better...coconut rice seemed like... More

Coming to this restaurant i was ecstatic to try the vast amount of different cuisine, however unfortunately i was quite disappointed with my experience. A lot of the food was dry, some were too salty and some were too bland. I found the service there to be quite very average. it's very sad to say but my experience there wasn't... More

For tapas type portions incredibly generous. Pleasing decor; excellent service. Food very good. Easy to get value for money. To get outstanding value work your way through king prawn and mussel dishes. Avoid heavier sauces, rice and too much alcohol which will bloat you. Thai green curry good to finish on with nice bits of chicken and a refreshing spicy... More
