Food from the kitchen of a Vietnamese grandmother.

Small. Cosy. Homey. Friendly staff. Delicious Sotheast Asia food, like Pad Thai, steamy Pho bowls (soup with a protein, noodles and vegetables - a filling meal that is good for a cold and rainy day), and rice dishes. Clean flavors which always delight. A litttle hole in the wall that is highly... read more

We usually stop by for a light dinner of soup and appetizer after a large lunch. The food is fresh and very tasty and reasonably priced.

We went to Lotus Grill for supper on a Friday evening. It was just after the dinner time rush. We waited briefly as our table was prepared. The service was wonderful. Theresa is charming, knowledgeable and truly wanted us to enjoy our meal. We chose a simple meal, fried rice and a curry. It was beautifully prepared. If you want... More

Salt and Pepper Fish and S&P Squid are amazingly good. The curries are good, too. It would be a five star if it had any atmosphere at all, but it doesn't. Crispy rolls are okay, but not the best. Stick to the curries and salt and pepper dishes.

. . . , 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

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 great... More
