“Food is good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Went by the ratings on trip advisor and even recommended to another family. Food was good and the price reasonable however the air conditioning does not work and was so hot could not eat fast enough to get out of there like a sauna. Buffet was filled in small portions and was always fresh. Pretty quiet spot.

“Great Chinese”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We were visiting Osoyoos with four guests from Malaysia and struggling with the problem of what to feed them. Our experience with most Chinese restaurants/take-aways in Canada is that it is difficult to find well cooked and authentic Chinese food that hasn't been soaked n MSG and salt. Boy - did we luck out by using the Lotus Restaurant. The food was excellent and well priced - we fed the six of us for less than $50.. The hostess gave great advice concerning what to order and in what quantities - she advised less than we wanted to order and was right! Her honesty and attention to detail was much appreciated. Even our guests were impressed and happy! Definitely a must visit if you like good Chinese food.

“terrific take out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

We came to this restaurant at about 7 o'clock it was pretty empty and the buffet stuff looked pretty empty. BUT we wanted take out. We were feeding about 16 people. We talked to the
receptionist and with her help ordered many dishes, and while we waited they prepared the food from scratch. It took about 45 minutes.. but the food was delicious , freshly made .. and hot.
For such a small town I thought it was terrific. While we waited some people came in and the lady said that they would fill out the steam table if they wished, … and I thought the service and willingness to serve the customer very good.
They also told us that there is a rush early at about 5 o'clock as lots of seniors like to come.

We had enough to feed the 16 with left overs .. the bill was 121 .oo.

“The Best Dining In Osoyoos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

One block of the main drag, and this one is a hidden gem. Buffet has less choices then there competitors but this is a matter of quality versus quantity. Very pleasant owners who obviously take pride in there business. Food was amazing and FRESH and well priced.
