We've been coming to Lotus for many many years and this is a great one! Great location, food always quick and hot. Sweet and sour soup is excellent!!

Best chinese food since I lived in chixago. Fried rice is tssty. Lots of chinese restaurants basically taste like food court food...this is not one of those. Only complaint is shrimp in fried rice weren't all deviened. Only about 50%.

We hadn't been to Lotus in several years, so when we were passing thru town last week, we stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Our meal and the service was as good as it was the last time we ate there. The staff is very attentive and the food was scrumptious. We loved it and can't wait to... More

This is one of those places that the locals know, and the newer residents may not know at all. This place is known for the scallion chicken. One of my family's favorite places to go on a lunch or dinner out.

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...

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
