A Hidden Diamond in the Rough

Locally known for it's Southeast Asian cuisine, The Lotus Garden is a must for lovers of slightly exotic and tastefully spicey culinary delights. The have some of the best suschi on the planet. I went for lunch, and will definitely be returning for lunch again as well as for dinner.

In terms of the food it was really good. We started with the Tokyo sushi platter which had an excellent chipotle mayo on top and was unique and different. For dinner we had the Pad Thai and Amok and we'd previously warned the waitress that I had a severe nut allergy, and the Pad Thai came with no nuts but... More

10 out of 10 on taste and portion. Dynamite meal from their dinner menu. Lunch menu also very good but I recommend ordering the sweet lotus shrimp (even at the dinner price)!

Went to the lotus garden for the first time. My wife had a wine and I had a UC for drinks. We sat outside and had a nice view through the side street of the state building. Our hostess was great. We had the lobster sushi roll (amazing) and I had a shrimp meal. Everything tasted great. We will definitely... More

We had heard from friends how good the Lotus Garden restaurant was, so we tried it and loved it. Even the chopsticks are more stylish than the chopsticks I have eaten with in other Asian restaurants. The restaurant has an outdoor courtyard with tables and chairs, but we chose to sit inside, in a dark and restful interior complete with... More

Heard good things so decided to try it out for dinner. Staff was very friendly, but the food was just average. Not bad at all but nothing exceptional either.

Best food ever. Always excellent service and the owner is a doll! Our favorite is the sweet Lotus shrimp but everything we've ever tried super delicious!

This is a delightful stop with a lively bar and 2 nice dining rooms. We were a group of 12 and sat in the bigger room which had a crackling fire in a charming fireplace - perfect for the subzero evening we came out on. After a drink in the bar area, we were seated and opted to eat family... More

The Lotus Garden has a great bar intimate atmosphere and a terrific ginger pear martini. Friendly wait service I had the Lobster Roll appetizer and the special of the evening a lotus shrimp dish. Out door dining is quite and intimate. We should frequent this restaurant more often since we live in Utica

We had a night in Utica New York and both people at the registration desk at the downtown Radisson recommended the Lotus Garden. It was an easy three block walk from the hotel and well worth it. I had a shrimp dish with veggies and rice that was cooked in a wonderful sauce. This was a Friday night and they... More
