Don't get me wrong, when I usually see a restaurant with over 300 items on their menu, I become incredibly hesitant; however, when almost every one of those 300 items is delicious, a big exception can be made. First of all, the service is always...More

The food in this place is consistently spectacular and the delightful owners, Kim and Dan, are people whose business you will want to support. Our vegetarian daughter absolutely loves the mock dishes. We love everything else. We are happy to pay a little more for...More

As often as we eat here, we are impressed by the freshness, creativity and great taste of the food. Dan and Kim run a fine restaurant in a simple setting. Don't be put off by the strip mall. This is great Chinese-fusion cuisine.

An absolute must if you are a vegan or vegetarian. This place has an amazing menu full of mock meat dishes and tofu. Every dish I have had has been excellent, and it all comes spiced to your liking (spicy for me!).

Don't let the modest strip mall exterior fool you. The owners are amazing. The menu is vast. The food is outstanding. No generic over-salted grease here. Everything is fresh and packed with flavor. Eat in or take out - it's a hidden gem.

This is delicious Chinese food. If you want run-of-the-mill selections, go somewhere else but if you want something truly interesting, this is the place. The food is consistently delicious and the service is wonderful. These are lovely people. It's the best Chinese/Asian food in the...More

It was our first time to the Agoura Hills area and we were looking for a restaurant where could enjoy vegetarian and non vegetarian cuisine. We searched online and found the Mandarin Express (Lotus) restaurant. Once we arrived, we were greeted by the husband and...More

The food was quite good. We ordered the OMG shrimp, and some dumpling appetizers. The OMG was a large serving, and we shared it. It was quite flavorful and fresh. The dumplings were just dumplings. The menu has many healthy choices, like tofu, and gluten...More
