Lovely Surprise

With a name like Wild Lotus, we thought it was a Thai restaurant! We were surprised by the variety of selection in their menu. The dishes were tasty and well presented. It was a busy night. Once we got our order in, the service was very good and attentive.

Nice position, opposite beach. Pleasant atmosphere, good food. Good service and some just a little 'off the beaten track' food. Free meal on your birthday, but worth another visit, anyway!

Simply a great place to have a celebration dinner at. The service is very slick and the meals are very large !! The prices are most reasonable and the OWNER/MANAGER is most attentive to your every request.

We were happy with the attention and cheery service. We had the lamb shanks which were very tender, but severley lacking in flavour. The meal was generous but the lamb was texture only.

The Wild Lotus has an expansive menu and a nice atmosphere. Even though it is on the Esplanade with plenty of traffic you don't hear it which is excellent. Food quality was superb. Mains around $25 unless choosing the seafood or large steaks which are more costly.
