Always delicious and kind staff

All types of delicious Thai and Cambodian dishes as well as fresh yummy sushi rolls! My favorite dish is the Bee Bong! Favorite non-alcoholic drink--the Thai Iced Tea!

We try to get here often as it is one of our favorite places to have a delicious relaxed meal. The food is always excellent, and I have tried a number of dishes I might be afraid to taste at other locations. Portions are large and I almost never have room left for desert. We love bringing out of town... More

Trust me, its the first time I am writing a review about any restaurant!..We were on our way from Ogdensburg to Providence and passed by Utica. My wife did a quick search on the restaurant nearby and that's how we came to this place. The ambiance itself gave us the feel that we have landed at a decent place. We... More

Had heard great things from friends. Service and wait staff were prompt and friendly. Food was very good and filling. If you go away hungry it is your own fault.

Arrived there around 8.30pm and they were very reluctant to serve us as they were about to close! They offered to do us a takeaway and we managed to persuade them to let us eat it at the bar. Food was pretty good: a bit on the sweet side for my liking but that's the case with a lot of... More

We decided to check out Lotus Garden after hearing great things but it was not as good as we had hoped. Although the bar atmosphere was nice, the food was below average. There are definitely better sushi spots in CNY. The noodle dish we tried was fairly bland and the sushi rolls we had were small, dry and didn't include... More

My husband and I came here for an early evening dinner and left hungry because we couldn't eat our food. Their menu is interesting and extensive but everything we tried was far from enjoyable, and practically inedible. You could tell they put thought into creating their menu, however, I only wish it delivered. We sat outside which was nice to... More

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

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.

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)!
