Lotus has both Chinese and Thai menu items, but I'd recommend sticking to the Chinese ones because the restaurant clearly specializes in Chinese dishes, and the Pad Thai we had was... really strange (was really sweet almost like orange chicken and didn't have normal toppings like crushed peanuts, bean sprouts, green onion, etc). However, the Chinese dishes were much better,... More

After a week of traveling between Hanalei and Kapa'a at night going to expensive restaurants, I was looking for a break. Based upon the Trip Advisor I decided to give this little Chinese restaurant a try located in the Princeville Mall. We were staying at the Sealodge, so we didn't have far to go. First, there was plenty of parking... More

very nice people working there, but the food was so disgusting and greasy. I only ate one bite. Won't return.

My wife and I spent 9 days/nights in Princeville in July and although we had a condo and ate many meals in, the Lotus Garden was so convenient we gave it a try. It shares tables in a common area, so we ordered it to take out. We love Asian food and have been to Asia many times, so we... More

We were eating at Tiki Niki right next door to this place... and the Chinese food was smelling soooo good. The next day we went for lunch and it was awesome! Maybe one of the nest chinese food meals I have ever had. I had the Black Pepper Beef with veggies, and my wife had the garlic sea bass. Both... More

Only eaten here once. Had red curry chicken with brown rice. Good flavor and heat. Nice mix of veggies and good amount of chicken. Service was good and friendly. Shares outdoor seating with Federico's and other food court tenants. Tables crowded at lunch time and lots of birds.

Since we had flown through the night and arrived in Princeville before noon, we were pretty hungry and needed something quick. I ordered the Chicken Pad Tai and while it satisfied my hunger, it was not even close to memorable. The lady at the counter was very nice, and as I said, the taste was decent, but if you are... More

So...we had been on the road a lot of the day, and we needed some quick take-out that had quality flavor. We were so pleasantly surprised with the two dishes we brought back to our condo/time share this evening. The yellow curry Chicken and the Duck dish were beyond just "ok take-out" ~ they were so wonderfully fresh (the carrots,... More

The main disappointment here was the lack of spice. Maybe this is my fault for not specifying that I wanted some spiciness, but the Chicken Pad Thai I ordered was very bland. Even adding some of the sriracha sauce didn't do much, and while I was happy to have a full stomach (they do have good sized portions!) the food... More

During our week in Princeville we ate here twice - once at the food court, and the second time we got take out. The wonton soup was ok but could have had more vegies and noodles. The second time we tried the chicken pad thai and beef in black bean sauce. Tasty and quite big portions (I keep saying this... More
