This restaurant is one of the best in Hervey Bay. Atmosphere is good with ambient lighting and soft music. Menu is very good with diverse choices to suit everyone. Reservation is advisable because this restaurant is popular. I can recommend the coconut crusted prawns for entree & the scallop & spanner crab risotto for mains.....they were scrumptious. :)

Amazing, well crafted and prepared food. Blend of flavours is stunning and all complement each other. Table service polite and efficient. Price and portion sizes very reasonable. Knocking a point off due to poor food delivery speed, but unless you're impatient you won't be disappointed at all.

Four of us went for dinner and all of us loved it. Service was friendly yet professional and food fantastic. Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection. Restaurant is small and cozy, across from beachfront. We thought food might have been Asian with name but it's western food. You will not be disappointed.

I had my Birthday there in December 2013, the food was amazing and the service was great so we went back there again with friends and it was just as good. It's hard to find good food in Hervey Bay but when you find great food you don't forget!

Very friendly waitress, and the starter of fried crumbed camembert was good and so was the accompanying salad, however the scallops in my seafood medley were conspicuous by their absence and so were the veggies other than potaotoes. Only had one prawn and my friend had three, so consistency was a problem - she had my share of veggies too.... More

It is always consistant with great food, wonderful service and an inviting atmosphere. My partner and I always choose Wild Lotus to have our night out, it's affordable, delicious and we are even having our wedding reception here on the 4th of July. We will be coming here for many, many years.

Tried to eat here earlier in our stay in Hervey Bay but the restaurant was already fully booked for two nights. Made a reservation for our third night in the vicinity of the Wild Lotus as we liked the look of the menu and its ambience. We weren't disappointed.
