“Girl's night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

This was my second visit to the Lotus Lounge. Friendly staff, great food and as much as you wanted, the Mongolian Lamb was beautiful. The only down side was the restaurant was cold, get some better heating and you will get 5 stars.

“The best Chinese food around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

We had been recommended the Lotus Lounge by a work colleague and we weren't disappointed. Superb food at a reasonable price (we had the all you can eat buffet and it really is all you can eat -the waitress was trying to persuade us to eat more!!) lovely service and a nice atmosphere too. We have since ordered several takeaways from here an have never been disappointed with the quality. The only bad thing I can say is that the restaurant is quite basic looking and a bit run down inside, but clearly they spend their money on providing quality food & good service & that's ok by me!

“Not what I had been told”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

All you can eat? All you can find to eat more like. Mostly consisted of deep fried starters with dips. Main course of chicken curry and beef in black been, both watery and lacking taste. Service OK and friendly bar staff. Being the only sit down Chinese in the area they have a captive market. For me though I will travel to Derby or Nottingham and get much better and cheaper.

“Seems to be going slowly downhill !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant used to be very good but seems on a rapid decline. The manager no longer seems to be bothered about the customers and the waitresses are run off their feet. The food is ok ish but not as good as it used to be and the prices keep increasing slightly as well . A shame as I would have previously recommended the place but this is no longer so !
