Switched over to this Chinese Restuarnt about a year ago it's been very delightful. The chicken and beef look and take great. This is the only one in Port that I don't waste my night after "on the toilet." The only negative comment I do have is I've never gotten my take out orders on time. If they say 20... More

We have been patrons of Lotus Garden for over 20 years. In my opinion they serve the best chinese food in not only the city but the region. I love their chicken balls, and chow mien, the egg rolls, chicken fried rice and beef and green vegetables. Each dish has of course its own flavour but it is not so... More

Perhaps Port Colborne's most popular Chinese restaurant, the Lotus Garden not only offers a wide selection of popular dishes, but enjoys a West Street waterfront location directly across from the Welland Ship Canal. A medium-sized venue, the restaurant seats about 30 and offers takeout as well. The restaurant is clean and the service efficient, although not enthusiastic. Apart from the... More

Went here for Valentine's Day without a reservation. We were seated immediately and the waitress was efficient and pleasant. Excellent food in a very cozy setting.

Dinner for 6 on Feb 13. Everything was cooked perfectly, served hot and fresh. The waitress was fast and friendly. It was nice to see some of the old style service. The ladies in our group were served first, she asked at least twice if everything was ok and when leaving, our left overs had been accidentally thrown out, they... More

I ordered hot & sour soup with egg rolls and their famous Ja do chicken wings. Just amazing. The soup reminded me the authentic hot & sour soup i had in China. They also have the best view in town, where you can look at the boats go through the canal. Make sure to sit by the window if you... More

One of the best Chinese food we've ever eaten. Cooked fresh to order. Have only ordered take out but I'm sure their service to dine in as efficient and friendly as it is to go. Prices are very reasonable and their portions are good. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

I find the food very bland and flavorless with very small portions. I wish it was better we need a good Chinese restaurant in this town. Unless you really want Chinese there are better choices close by.
