Everyone has a favorite Chinese restaurant and I guess since we drive 11 miles to get to it, we like it. My favorites are Moo Goo Gai Pan and Flower Chicken. The menu has a few cute fun translations we get a kick out of. The place is tired, but food is still good.

We have been going to this Chinese restaurant for years. We love the owner and the staff...they remember us and always make us feel welcome. There is never a wait, and the wonton soup is as good, if not better, than Chinatown! It's an older building and could use some upgrades/renovations, but we go there for the food and service...not...

Seems like all the Chinese restaurants now are either buffet or takeout and I wanted to find a sit down and be waited on Chinese Restaurant and a friend recommend Lotus. It was fabulous. It's certainly not fancy, but the food was great, staff was friendly and prices are affordable.Great selection too. It's been there for around 30 years and... More

I have lived in NC, SC, GA, and Las Vegas, NV. The best chinese out of all these states is LOTUS!! They have had the same menu for at least 20 years, which is great - Never change a good thing! My favorite dish: Diced chicken and Shrimp with hot Pepper. I also love their Pepper Steak -- MUST try!... More

We have been dining at Lotus for about 25 years now. Not weekly anymore but perhaps monthly. In all these years Lotus has changed little, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It remains a popular neighborhood Chinese restaurant with warm service and decent food at very reasonable prices. Is it PF Chang's? No, of course not. And neither are... More

Lotus has been in business for many years. It has a very dated decor and only serves beer/wine (no liquor license). That said we have dined there on many occasions and plan to continue. They offer a large menu for lunch and dinner. The food and service are consistently very good. Excellent value.

As soon as we sat down, we received a basket of warm fried wanton with two dips. One was sweet and sour and the other was hot mustard. Never would have thought of that. It took the edge off as we searched the large menu. Both of our dishes were tasty (Beef with Snow Peas & Chicken with Garlic Sauce).... More
