There are a couple other Asian places in the area but this is better then some of the others. We eat there every couple months and have never had a bad meal. We have never done the buffet. It's nothing fancy and I have had better but it's ok.

Filthy. Food is inedible. Go anywhere other than this place. Unfortunately, it is the only chinese restaurant in the area.

If your craving chineese food while in Camden I would skip the Lotus restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere left a lot to be desired. I would recommend Peter Otts or Mariners, both were very good.

Ordered the buffet..food cold and several items missing. I had to ask to micro the food in the restaurant. I would not recommend if you expect warm food.

I didn't expect world class chinese food, but I did expect an edible meal. My first clue should have been the condition of the restrooms! Absolutely visit Camden - skip the Lotus.
