Average Chinese, but you're in West Yellowstone

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.

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.

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

I had the best orange chicken since being in China Town in LA. There are a lot of Asian tour groups for Yellowstone. When we first came through town there was a huge line. I'm guessing the owners caters a lot so food has to be up to snuff. We stopped in for lunch/dinner. Very glad we did.

We went to red lotus this summer during the Yellowstone vacation. The food is average. The price is very high. They serve a lot of travel group people from tour bus. For the individual guest they treat badly. We wait almost 30 mins to get our first dishes to come. You can find better food place in the town!

This wasn't what we expected for Chinese food. Poor ingredients. Poor sauce. Poor cooking (overfried). Terrible service - our server spilled rice as she was removing plates from the table, and didn't care to clean the table up afterward, while we kept on spending time to read fortune cookie messages and to have another cups of hot tea. Do not... More

Food was "meh" and prices were high - more than I've spent in big cities for the same. Skip this spot- there are far better options in West Yellowstone!
