The Best Chinese In The Town!

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... read more

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
