It's good. Just not great. The price is reasonable. A nice, quick stop for lunch or early dinner. We had wonton soup, pad tai, stir fry vegetables. It's an OK take out too if you keep your expectation reasonable.

It has a reasonable selection of Chinese dishes, but also some Thai and Malaysian dishes (which are not at the same level). I'd go for the traditional Chinese dishes, which are fine and good take-out.

This is our go-to Chinese restaurant in Chapel Hill, both for dine-in and take-out. Menu is extensive (including a special Chinese menu). I have never been disappointed with any selection. Phone in take-out orders are filled promptly and are generally ready in 15 minutes.

I went here with a group of women from my congregation. They have a lunch menu that has $7.00 lunch with a large variety of dishes with chicken, pork or tofu served with rice and option of soup or eggroll.

A group I meet with every month decided to eat lunch here. There are lots of choices for the $7 lunch specials. Lots of different sauces most of which can be paired with chicken, pork, beef and Tofu . I had pork with black bean sauce. The lunch special also comes with soup, eggroll or, during the summer months, a... More

We were looking for a local Chinese restaurant that was tasty and not mainly takeout. We had a very nice, tasty meal at a very reasonable price. We will be back.

Maybe we were there on an off night. Food was more tepid than warm and rather bland for an Asian resto. Shared pork pot stickers which were so-so, but looked like out of a package. Then Kung pao chicken which fell far short of spicy hot and had little taste. Also warm temperature rather than hot. Maybe sat around a... More

My wife and I dine out not out of convenience like so many people, but in a quest for something above average, unique and surprisingly good without paying $75 per person. Our first meal at the Red Lotus in Chapel Hill was just that. I don't have the writing skills to adequately express the difference in the flavor levels of... More

My husband and I decided to try a new Asian restaurant as we were tired of the traditional sugar loaded buffets. We decided to try Red Lotus and was not disappointed. The lunch menu was very reasonably priced and the portions were plenty. We asked our server for recommendations and he did not lead us astray. The food came out... More
