Great service, great food, and totally affordable! Make sure you have the pancake/crepe appetizer. Run, don't walk here.....

Very simple dining. zero ambiance, zero atmosphere but soups and food individually prepared and I have never been disapointed! Don't take anyone with you you want to impress!!!!!!! Much better than "fast food"!!!!!!

I recently took a business colleague out to dinner and based on the reviews on Trip Advisor we sought out the Lotus Grill. I was embarrassed as we pulled up and saw how tiny and unattractive the restaurant is. Inside there are approximately 10 or 12 tables, linoleum floors, fluorescent lighting and formica table tops. For most of the meal... More

This is a restaurant that we often frequent for a light dinner. We usually order a large wonton soup and chicken dumplings. We used to order the PHO but that is a heavier meal. This is a small place with only a few tables and we have been pleased with everything we ever ate. We also take out the wonton... More

Unfortunately the size and location can deceive you, but the meal is carefully prepared and presented. The menu is complete and offers the basic selection of Vietnamese items. One hopes the chef and owner will one day expand into a larger facility...but keep the same good food and service....

They cook up some great Vietnamese in the tiny kitchen of this unassuming little restaurant. The place looks like a hole in the wall in what looks like a modified brick home and a gravel parking lot. Food inside however is great! Highly recommend the chicken satay appetizer and the chicken and rice noodle soup.

Went in for some pho solo, then came back a few days later for pork bun. Such great food. Small place, but otherwise perfect. Will be a regular there for sure!

We always like the food at Lotus Grill. It is the place I go when I feel stress and want to relax and have my favorite food. The tea is so good and relaxing and my favorites are the Vermicelli with pork and spring rolls and the Vietnamese crepe. The soups are great too.

I was in Farmington on a 1 day business trip and decided to get take-out from Lotus Grill based on the glowing reviews. I was really disappointed in the food and it may be I needed to have eaten in the restaurant even though the hotel was less than 1/2 mile away so the food was still hot by the... More

This is a mom and pop shop, nothing fancy, only a couple of tables, if you have a large party (6 or more people) you will take over the place. The decor is a little lacking, the drinks are all cans, but come-on... You don't go to these places for the ambiance!!! It was raining outside, so I was in... More
