We have been stopping at Lotus Grill for years if we happened to be in the area at lunch time. We have pretty much always gotten a bowl of pho. I had pretty much settled in on the Special Beef pho. We had sort of started timing our trips to or through Farmington so as to be there at lunch... More

Came with my visiting daughter and grandsons for a light dinner. The boys over the fried chicken dumplings but the chicken satay was disappointing. The adults all ate the pancake and spring rolls and enjoyed them. There used to be more chicken in them but since the chicken was a little rubbery I didn't mind.

The pho is tummy. I love the spring rolls. But my must have is the Vietnamese Crepe filled with chicken, shrimp, mushrooms and bean sprouts.

This is our go to place when we are looking for a light meal after a heavy lunch. We usually order two chicken dumpling soups and share an entree. The food is always fresh and delicious . The prices are reasonable and it is a small place with a lot of take out.

I've eaten here a few times, and have always enjoyed my meal. There is plenty of parking, but they only a few tables inside so you may need to wait - but you can always get take-out. Last night I had the noodles and spring rolls. So yummy that I forgot to snap a photo!

Have only had the rare beef pho here, but it is very good (not sure if it's authentic, but great none the less. I also very good if you use dine-in CT and have it delivered.

Great, authentic Vietnamese food with awesome Pho that everyone in my family craves, luckily we live nearby. Summer rolls and everything else really has been superb. Highly recommended.

We ordered the Pad Thai noodle dish and specified no nuts. However, the Pad Thai sauce apparently has nuts in them and caused an allergic reaction to one of our family member. The waitress who served us did not take our peanut allergy seriously. (She is a new waitress and not the usual lady who served us) I questioned her... More

Although the setting is modest, the food experience is unforgettable. Very authentic home style Vietnamese cuisine at affordable prices. The pho is tasty and plentiful. the shaken beef well seasoned and filling. The service is excellent and you are well taken care of. We go there for both business lunches and family dinners.
