If there is something I love in my life, it's premium food. Flor de Loto offers an amazing friendly staff and an almost infinite (of course not infinite but super large) menu. Anything you eat here you'll love. I usually call for take out three or five times a week. There is no other Chinese restaurant like this in the... More

I heard good things about this place near the ICE building. So I ordered the Moo Shu Pork. It arrived with out the pancakes and the plum sauce. So I ask for the rest and the nice young man returned quickly with my pancakes but no plum sauce. So I ask for my sauce. They said the owner is to... More

It was far from the the best Chinese food I've had and was nothing to write home about. My seafood fried rice was tasty, but seemed to only contain a few shrimp pieces. Unfortunately, it was saturated with very tough octopus tentacles. I was hoping for a little more variety. It felt strange in the restaurant because there was only... More

This was a very nice place, again the food was excellent, a little pricy but very good. Close to the hotel also.

No wonder why they closed in the afternoon...they can afford it!The place was packed mostly by locals, which is the best sign. Excellent and abundant food at reasonable prices, and fast service. You cannot ask for more.

The front of the restaurant is always full of expensive fancy cars, It confirms that rich people are not always klever on where they spend their money and show off their fancy cars. We go there to celebrate birthday because it is in front of our job, and because there is a waiter that always give us a nice blessing.... More

Was not our best eating experience while in San Jose. The menu is extensive with a lot of choices. The dishes we had were so-so, not great but not horrible. The server we had could speak some English but was not very helpful, even tried to extort a larger tip for our party when the 10% Service fee was too... More

Chinese food is not my first choice by a long shot when I travel, but it was a hot day and near my hotel. Nice and cool inside, excellent waitstaff, and fast service. I had Sechuan tofu & vegetables that was quite good, and I was pleased to get enough to take home for dinner.

At first sight from outside you won't pay a cent for it, but gojng inside the ambience and decoration is a traditional but modern Chinese restaurant, red and white. The food is great, the menu is very colorful in dishes terms, they have a lot, so is difficult to decide. I tried the egg rolls 4 units is a lot... More
