Good meal, not great

Basic Asian rice plates that are what your expect, but nothing more. Many dishes had been made a bit more bland than normal, but I wonder if you could ask to have them kick up the spice level (not just hot spice, but flavor spices too) to be more authentic. Good choice for Sunday night quick... read more

This little place is situated in a small courtyard at the Princeville Shopping Centre. Nothing fancy, but the food is great. It's Chinese and Thai inspired. You can get takeout or eat at tables in the little courtyard. You can even bring your own bottle and enjoy a glass of wine or a beer. All-in-all a nice, relaxing dinner spot.

I always judge a Thai restaurant by its Pad Thai. This was horrible, four small pieces of chicken, a flavor of grease and spices I could not describe. It was very red in color. Friend had spring rolls, they were inedible.

My husband and I were visiting the Princeville Shopping Centre on Kauai in February of this year. It was getting close to lunch time and we walked by their food court. We spotted the Lotus Garden and decided to give it a try. We we ever pleasantly surprised. You go in and order your food and then it is delivered... More

We really enjoy the Lotus Garden. Papaya Salad is excellent, actually everything is excellent. We ate here numerous times.

We all really loved the food. We ordered take out for a group of six and it was ready in 10 minutes. My favorite was the shrimp lo mein and the orange garlic chicken.

We found this restaurant by accident, as it is located next to another restaurant that we planned to go. It is located in the shopping center, part of a food court. The restaurant itself doesn't have any seating inside, and all seats are shared with other restaurants, which is kind of nice. We ordered food at the counter, express style,.which... More

We grabbed lunch here while shopping. We had filled WonTons (a huge portion), Cashew Chicken, and Lo Mein. Everything was good. Inexpensive.
