We weren't very hungry at dinnertime, but wanted something light. We decided that some Asian appetizers were just the thing. We were there in August, and were very hesitant of eating inside any place. The pandemic numbers were very high and rising rapidly in this...part of California. The area was extremely crowded, and most people were NOT wearing masks. So we ordered take out. We got crab wontons, pot stickers, and some spring rolls. Our food was ready when we arrived, and the person working at the restaurant was very nice. We took our food back to our place of lodging. The spring rolls were quite good, nice and fresh. The crab wontons left something to be desired. They were soggy and tasted stale. The pot stickers were fine, but were nothing special. This was disappointing.More

Pretty okay pho noodle soup considering in a ski resort area. After almost a week at Heavenly Village, my hubby and I was looking for Asian food fix! We were so glad to find this place not far (about 15 min walk) from the village....The place gives out a bit of a diner feel from the outside, inside is dated but clean and looks like a cabin. We both ordered pho noodle soup which was not bad. The fried egg roll was average, and the drinks Thai iced tea and Vietnamese coffee was goodMore

We had a great meal. All the ingredients were fresh, service was fast and friendly. The chef was singing while he cooked our food which put a smile on our faces.

As we are visiting Tahoe and my wife loves Vietnamese cooking, after reading reviews on Yelp we decided to try Lotus. After walking about a mile to get to Lotus, we stood for 5 minutes waiting to be seated. Not a single employee paid any...attention to us. Finally I waved and caught the attention of a server who seated us. Spilling water all over the table, she thrust dirty glasses of water at us and left. Starring out a filthy window and looking at an equally filthy menu I was hesitant to order. But Lotus saved us that worry. The server never came back to our table. Not once. While I watched the woman who sat us take orders from 3 other tables, she never even looked our direction. After waiting 15 minutes (20 counting the wait to be seated), I sent my son to the front counter to ask for service. He returned and we waited another 10 minutes with no service. Remember, I was watching the employee taking orders from other tables including people who were seated after us. I then went to the front counter and expressed my displeasure. Their response was to shrug as if they didn't care. We left. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY AT EITHER LOTUS LOCATION. IF I COULD GIVE ZERO STARS, I WOULD.More

We walked into a very clean and welcoming space, and had a great meal. A big steaming bowl of rice noodles, veggies, shrimp, BBQ pork and chicken were just what the doctor ordered after a few days of spicy and fast food. The service was...fast, and the restaurant overall had a calm atmosphere. A winner!More

Nice Vietnamese restaurant. Got Pho, noodles and beef sizzling, all good. Not fancy and they could use more waiters, but I guess hiring in Tahoe in winter is not very easy.

For the price that they offer for their food, it's a really good and appetizing deal! Staff were friendly too.
