Its refreshing to have a Vietnamese restaurant in the area where it's mostly Filipino restaurant. One of my go to place for Pho. The broth is clean and delicious. The quality of the food and ingredients are excellent. Service is friendly and attentive.
We were visiting relatives in Carson and thought of having dinner out. The kids have a lot of allergies and are limited with the food that they like and can eat. Vietnamese food has always been a good option with the egg rolls, pork chop...and the pho. This restaurant came as a recommendation by our relatives. The place is small but cozy. The wait staff are friendly and accommodating. We ordered the usual stuff, egg rolls, pork chop and pho. We also tried their calamari and the boba tea. We have a favorite restaurant in Brentwood and this did not disappoint. We had our dinner reservation for 6:30 PM and by this time the place was already busy. So reservation is a must if you have a big group.More
The Blue Lotus is situated on a corner with a strip mall behind it (at Main and Carson Blvds). The menu is extensive and my colleagues wanted pho and some other specific dishes. They were quite satisfied. I ordered grilled pork over rice but received...grilled chicken over rice. It was tasty and filling. The spring rolls were yummy too. The service was hit and miss. The prices competitive. I waved goodbye to my friends thinking it'd be easy to call Lyft. The gps on the app could not find me nor Blue Lotus. Finally I downloaded Uber and made it back to the Long Beach Airport.More
I had better pho in Gardena, but in this area its considered decent. The bowl is average size , but the calamari is really good and so as the egg roll. If you crave for some pho and in cold weather, this is the place...to come because its clean and modern, not like any other asian restaurant.More
this place and pho Consomme in Gardena probably offer the best Pho in the area, the broth, a key component in the pho is very very well cooked and it's packed with flavors.
The only complain that I had is the portions are a bit...small.More
Our host family would have Sunday afternoons/evenings finding a nice place to eat. It seemed to be a weekend treat for everyone.
We decided to have barbecue... and what better place to enjoy this than a Vietnamese restaurant. So we chose Blue Lotus in Carson...City, CA.
Our experience was awesome. The food was delicious. Everybody enjoyed their dish. The egg rolls were super delicious. Their fresh 'lumpia' (vegetable roll) didn't disappoint. And the star dishes of the evening were the Korean spare ribs as well as their pork and chicken barbecue dishes.
Lastly, don't forget to include their special fried rice. Everybody just loved this.
The places I have enjoyed tasty Korean barbecue are in New York, Las Vegas and here in Carson City.
When in Southern California, bring everyone to Blue Lotus for an unforgettable feast.More
The one thing I order here is the #1 House Special, which has Done Beef, Rare Beef, Tendon, Brisket and Tripe. At times, I will order the Combination Crispy Chow Mein which you should mix together to soften the noodles.
