My husband and his family have been getting Chinese food from Lotus for over 15+ years now. It is the only Chinese restaurant we will go to. They are super friendly and know us by name when we call for a pick up order. I highly recommend the scallion chicken, pork fried rice, and crab rangoons!

Diners are always greeted with a smile and a friendly face at Lotus. The service is outstanding and the food is always delicious. Our favorites, Scallion Chicken, Broccoli and Beef, and Sweet and Sour Shrimp are very popular. Every dish is prepared fresh and delivered to the table piping hot.

We live in the Hickory area now, but any excuse to head to Mooresville to eat at Lotus will work. We have tried plenty of Chinese restaurants, but nothing meets up. We love the Scallion chicken, egg rolls, & fortune cookies! Service is always friendly & prompt. Come back as much as we can. Would highly recommend it to all.

Best chinese food since I lived in chixago. Fried rice is tssty. Lots of chinese restaurants basically taste like food court food...this is not one of those. Only complaint is shrimp in fried rice weren't all deviened. Only about 50%.

We hadn't been to Lotus in several years, so when we were passing thru town last week, we stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Our meal and the service was as good as it was the last time we ate there. The staff is very attentive and the food was scrumptious. We loved it and can't wait to... More

This is one of those places that the locals know, and the newer residents may not know at all. This place is known for the scallion chicken. One of my family's favorite places to go on a lunch or dinner out.

Everyone has a favorite Chinese restaurant and I guess since we drive 11 miles to get to it, we like it. My favorites are Moo Goo Gai Pan and Flower Chicken. The menu has a few cute fun translations we get a kick out of. The place is tired, but food is still good.
