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!

Usually when you walk into a Chinese restaurant you are served crispy noodles with sweet & sour sauce, hot mustard and a pot of tea. None of this happened. They had no beer or wine either. We both got a combination plate and ordered a pot of tea. While the food was just average, it was quite pricey.

Food was excellent, although a little pricey. Our family of 3 chose two combination plates and it was plenty for all of us. Very boisterous tour-bus crowd. Recommend take-out rather than eat-in.

Just finished lunch at the Red Lotus. Great service and excellent food. This is the place to go for authentic and American style Chinese food. A little pricey, but that is to be expected in West Yellowstone.

Ate here around 1:00 on weekday so did not encounter the busy. I had beef with pea pods. The pea pods were crisp and delicious the beef was good also not chewy like some places. The corn soup was good. My mom had the sweet and sour chicken it was also good. We really liked the fried rice too!

I had a great meal of beef and broccoli. Dined with 2 friends. One said that his meal was cold. The other liked her food.

A lot of the tours that cater to the Oriental travelers bring their customers here, but the real issue is the tour guides. We were waiting for a table for four and as that table was prepped 3 tour guides plopped themselves down with no consideration for the line. It seems they eat for free since they bring their customers... More

I was travelling with my parents who only wanted Chinese food, so we opted for this restaurant since the other Chinese restaurant was jam-packed. This was a bad idea. We ordered: 1. Curry coconut shrimp 2. Mushroom Chicken 3. Special hotpot 4. Mixed vegetables They were all pretty bland, and tasted very, very similar. (check out the pictures, the dishes... More
