Our favorite soup place.

We often come here for their won ton soup which is made with shrimp and chicken rather than pork. We consider this a light meal and usually include an appetizer. We often come for lunch when we intend upon having a large dinner or if we have a big lunch we come for a light dinner. This soup is... read more

. . . , and they know pho. That is all I need in a good Vietnamese restaurant. The ginger chicken was quite nice as well. Reasonable prices, large portions, and decent prices. I'll be back.

We went on a Tuesday at 11:40, so we were first to dine in that day. We ordered 2 rare beef pho and one chicken. The broth was good but didn't make you say Wow like other places. The beef was pre- packaged deli meat, not sliced rare beef. The chicken pho was much better. I would go again and... More

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.
