On the weekend's their menu is brunch during the morning and afternoon and then changes to their dinner menu at 5:00 pm. First visit and happy with food. My husband is a devoted meat eater, but he was very pleased with his biscuits and gravy. Gravy is described on menu as chorizo, but it is vegan! Yum, first biscuits and... More

Although I am not a vegetarian, I really enjoyed the Blossoming Lotus. Wait staff were wonderful. Salads, sauces and main dishes were excellent. I walked there from my hotel near the convention center. It's a great choice for those who love healthful, well-prepared dishes.

Nice, clean interior. Food options are excellent. I'm not a vegan or vegetarian but have no trouble finding excellent entree choices here. Food presentation is always very creative and pleasant. They also have great beverage choices and some delicious chocolates.

I love this place. Whenever my husband and I want a meal out, Blossoming Lotus always comes to mind. For one thing, it serves only plant-based food, so I don't have to worry or ask about animal products being in anything they serve. Everything they make is delicious, and I've tried quite a few things on their menu. They use... More

We chanced to have lunch at this comfortable eatery and it was one of the best meals we had in Portland. Their varied and imaginative vegan menu was quite impressive and their friendly service was perfection. Our lunch exceeded our expectations and gives us a good excuse to return to Portland. We can't wait! We'll definitely be back!|

Excellent lunch service with a great variety of vegetarian choices. Was great last year and has matured into an even a better vegetarian restaurant this year. Pretty popular so it can work better for you to have a late lunch like we did today,

Great menu, wonderful staff, lovely interior. My wife is the vegan but I must say this meal was satisfying as anything I've ever had, it wasn't lacking in anything. Only problem is I don't live in Portland so it'll be a some time before I can get back.

Seriously,Wow….we ended up eating here almost every day. It's simply some of the best plant based food there is. The sauces are lively and there's a broad spectrum of flavors, lots of non-gluten options. Has both raw and cooked options. The flu fighter shooter is worth the try and the southern BBQ (soy curles), may be the most impressive plant... More

Was in town for a conference when I discovered this gem was just a short walk from my hotel (near the convention center). I loved the atmosphere, decor, the staff, and of course the food. Since I don't eat soy, or faux meat I had limited choices, but was pleased enough to return again during my visit. Try whatever baked... More

Great vegan fare with a lot of surprisingly delicious combinations. The excellent quality and wholesomeness of the ingredients is easy to make out. Deep fried soy curls were such a revelation. Portions weren't huge but very filling. They seemed very understaffed to cater to the lunchtime crowd in a very busy part of the town. We had to wait quite... More
