I still like their green curry. It is the same thing I order for the past dozen visits I had. My wife has tried many different dishes and she has not been disappointed so far. Espeically the noodle soup is very good. However, I do have to agree that the service seems to be not as good as before. There... More

We went on a recent Friday night. They had 1 person working as hostess, waitress, and server for the entire restaurant. There were only a few other tables, but the wait just to order our food was about 20 minutes. Our food finally arrived and , way, way way! too much MSG and 5 spice, so much it was uneatable....

It was ok; we ate it--our choice; we could have sent it back. Unfortunately, the salmon was a little overcooked and dry. Also, the dish omitted the shrimp that were... More

The food is excellent and has alot of taste. The service can be slow at time since there are not that many employees, but we do not care since it is worth the wait.

I'm a Pho lover. When I ordered Pho at Lotus Leaf Cafe, I found my self looking into a bowl of pure MSG. I dont know if MSG can cause serious harm but I'm sure it will damage your health. They threw in some mint leaves to hide the MSG smell but I can see right through it. Please donot... More

I absolutely love the Lotus Leaf Cafe. I don't know why people are complaining about the service. I wouldn't say that it is slow. Your glasses are filled as needed and plates are removed when you are done. The waitresses there give you time to enjoy your meal with few interuptions. That to me, makes a good restaurant. That and... More
