Great Vermicelli Bowl

My wife and I love Vietnamese and stopped here on our way to the airport. We both had #17 Vermicelli with grilled Chicken and both thought it was fantastic. Our meal even came with a small cup of soup which is not normal and a pleasant surprise at a Vietnamese restaurant.

We have great group lunches here. The food is very fresh, with something for everyone! Try the Mango Salad -it's to die for! The Thai iced tea is one of the best I've ever had!

This restaurant has really, really fresh and delicious food. My favorite is the sour soup which has a tamarind base and is not sour at all, it is enough for 2. A great meal is the soup and the papaya salad! They also have a square lotus curry which is so good it makes you want to go back for... More

This is how delicious the food is at Square Lotus...the first time I ate there was when I met a friend for lunch and when we finished eating I ordered to-go for dinner!! The food is fresh, the service friendly and efficient and the options are extensive. I haven't had a mediocre dish yet...all delicious!

One of the Best (fancy, satisfying preparations) Vietnamese Restaurants we've ever visited. Prior to dining at Square Lotus, when we thought Vietnamese food, we thought Pho and Bean Sprouts. Wrong, there is a Fancy Side and Square Lotus is it!

I've eaten here many times of the years and not quite sure how to characterize the place other than good food - good service - at good prices - blazingly fast. Even at lunch with the restaurant full of people.

Square Lotus is a very good Vietnamese restaurant. Where it really shines are its vegetarian options. Pretty much any dish can be made with seitan (made from textured vegetable protein) which is spiced and prepared to taste like chicken or beef. Such dishes are typically good even for vegans. If you have people with special dietary needs, it's a win... More

Our daughter picked this place for her birthday lunch. Vietnamese is not my favorite food, but this was very good and the service was excellent. My daughter misread the menu on one of the items she ordered, so we decided to eat that and the waiter made a smaller plate of the same item the way my daughter thought it... More

Food is good. Service is average. Atmosphere is below average. Prices are reasonable. It's really more 3.5 stars, but the food is better than average.
