We ate here with friends during our trip to Yellowstone National Park. More and more Chinese tourists visit our national parks these days. I'm surprised there aren't a dozen or more Chinese restaurants here in West Yellowstone! This place was packed when we got here. We arrived around 5:30 pm. We had to wait about 20 minutes for a booth.... More

The place was packed when we arrived and made a to-go order. English was not a first or second language and it took several times to order. That being said the food was excellent, even tho they are very stingy with the meat. I got two small flat pieces of chicken in my meal and my wife's shrimp were sliced... More

Having read the previous reports I was a little unsure of what was to be expected. I confess to being suprised how good the meal was. The service was quick and efficient and the food was very good, tasty and very good portions. The reason I have not given a higher mark is simple, this is not an up market... More

The Food and service was great. They handled a large group well. Just fyi - The sweet and sour chicken was better than the Orange chicken.

Just average Chinese, but you're in West Yellowstone after all. We were told they delivered but they don't so you need to go pick up.

This was our first time at the Red Lotus, as others pointed out most of the customers where Chinese. The out side as well as the inside looks new and clean, the service was average with no complaints. But the food was terrible I had their double cooked pork and the meat tasted freezer burn. My wife had curried chicken... More

A lot of places are closed for the season mid October, so we just walked the little town and decided to eat based on the nice look of the restaurant and the fact that quite a lot of Chinese tourists were eating there. Well, the food was not good, it was bland and they give you a tiny amount of... More

We walk in, and there are a couple of tables of Chinese tourists, always a good sign. They have a Chinese menu which is basically a menu of specialties, with basic dishes that Chinese (Cantonese) typically order in a restaurant. There's no English translation on the Chinese menu though. We ordered something from the Chinese menu, and it was surprisingly... More

we are aware that chinese food in western countries is often adapted to local tastes but this was bloody. Land - excuse my French! Ok it was a Sunday night in a tourist town but that is no excuse for tasteless overpriced food. I had the hot pot of various stuff, the veges were the highlight. The food was almost... More
