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. Wine choice was very limited but at an affordable price. Restaurant has easy parking and popularity is reflected by the number of people attending on the Tuesday... More

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.

Multi-award winning restaurant and we agree they thoroughly deserve them. Great food and reasonably priced. The service was very pleasant and efficient. Window tables overlook the Esplanade parklands. Overall a fantastic venue and impossible to fault. Highly recommended.

We went to Wild Lotus to celebrate my mother's birthday. We have dined there before, but this time was very disappointing. We waited over 45 minutes for our meals, When they arrived the pasta dishes were very tasty but the portion sizes were more of an entre size, the eye fillet steak was as tough as an old boot and...

Enjoyed a very special lunch here yesterday with my Dad, my husband, my sister and her husband on the occasion of Dad's 95th birthday. We were seated quickly and water brought to the table whilst we chose our drinks. After choosing these, we perused a tempting lunch menu before four of us chose the grilled snapper whilst the remaining choice... More

The only mashed potato is sweet potato!! Sweet potato chips on almost every main course dish except pasta. Pasta dishes are good. Menu varied to suit all tastes. Service SLOW
