Always had a lovely 'all you can eat' meal here. Staff are very friendly and take their time to explain the (slightly confusing) menu. Nothing is too much hassle for them. Food is freshly cooked and delicious. The room is nicely decorated and clean. Been back here several times and not been disappointed yet.

We have been going to the Lotus Lounge for a number of years but haven't been recently so decided to rectify this. Booked a table for six adults for Sunday lunch. Could not fault a thing, fast and efficient service, hot dishes with plenty for each person even without having to do as it says on the menu, "If you... More

We arrived at the restaurant on the sunday evening around 6.30pm and there were already two other couples in there. We got seated & ordered our drinks and first lot of starters - chicken skewers, wings, spring rolls, soups and duck. Drinks & prawn crackers were served straight away. Around 10 minutes later the satay skewers & spring rolls were... More

We went here for a meal after a day out in derby and Matlock and we were very impressed. Good was lovely, especially the buff curry. And staff were friendly and polite.

The Fledgling had flown the nest for the night leaving the Man Bird and myself somewhat at a loose end. So we had a quick flick through the local restaurants and came upon The Lotus Lounge Chinese Restaurant in Alfreton. They do an all-you-can-eat buffet for £ 16.95 on Friday and Saturday nights (different pricing options mid-week), which we had... More

Visited for the third time this year and was again impressed with the quality of the food and service, at a very fair price. Also free parking very close by.

Service from start to finish was so poor, one drink arrived after 15 minutes the rest 15 minutes later for a party of 4. Waitress and manager very miserable and unwelcoming. We ordered food which came out in stages, ie. one small plate of starters then another 20 Minutes later even though they were ordered at the same time. When... More

Been here a few times but never got round to writing a review - time to put that right. It really is one of the best Chine buffet restaurants in the area. We like to go in a group so we get to sample everything :o) Staff are very friendly. Tip - try the Moroccan Lamb - not sure it's... More

Finally found a really great Chinese restaurant. We went here after asking my eldest where he wanted to eat for his 15th birthday. He said he wanted Chinese food so I looked on TripAdvisor as locally we struggle. We weren't disappointed the food is great and really good value. We will be definetly be going back.
