The grilled bugs were lovely, the meat was sweet and complimented by the subtle dill butter, the garlic aioli was far too overpowering, but thankfully served on the side so easily avoided! The spanner crab and scallop risotto was unfortunately made with so much cheese that it was the only flavour unless you seperated an anemic scallop which hadn't been... More

We have been wanting to have a meal at the Wild Lotus Restaurant for a while, but everytime I have tried to book it had been booked out. We thought that it must be good!! Finally we went there on the weekend and were very disappointed. The portions of the main meals were small, considering the price. I normally don't... More

Gentleman greeted us with a smile and indicated lunch was available but they would be closing in just over 30 minutes to prepare for the Valentines Day dinner. No problem for us at all. Water was served promptly and was plentiful. The weather is very very hot, so we were grateful! I had the gluten feee fish and chips with... More

5 stars for customer service! Staff were attentive and always asking how my meal was. My meal was ok, but I think it could be better. I recommend they switch the sour cream dip with some olives or paprika hummus for more of an upmarket trio of dips dish and change the bread to Turkish. The fish was cooked well... More

We had a lovely meal here with wonderful service. You do need to book as it is very busy with both locals and tourists.

We arrived slightly after opening and were given our choice of seating. The restaurant filled quickly, and we were happy to be seated out of the main dining area. We had read the menu online before coming and I knew what I wanted: kangaroo. We're from the States, and this is not something we see on the typical menu there.... More
