Wonderful neighborhood restaurant! I love the atmosphere and the artwork! The staff is kind and helpful. The menu is vegan and vegetarian friendly. The food is wonderful! Even for omnivores! Wine, beer and cocktails too. I enjoyed their "mocktails!"

Went to vist a friend in Oregon, she bragged about all the vegan restaurants in Portland. So she took me to the the Blossoming Lotus, and I was amazed! A lot of vegan restaurants try to make up for flavor by using hot spices, masking the true flavor of the food. But these guys got it right!! It was well... More

This is the third time we've been to Blossoming Lotus and it has quickly become my favorite restaurant in Portland. Excellent food regardless of whether you are vegan, urban ambience, good service and all for a very reasonable price. Come on an empty stomach!

I have tried several different restaurants in the past few weeks that I have been visiting Portland, and I must admit that Blossoming Lotus is hands down the best vegan restaurant in Portland area. Of all the dishes I tried in Blossoming Lotus thus far, Pumpkin Empanadas, Thai Salad, Fingerling Potatoes, and Bibimbap stand out. My favorite beverages are Protein... More

This is by far the best Vegan restaurant! The food is very flavorful without all the stuff in an attempt to fool you. I've been on two separate occasions so they are very consistent.

I was with a small group of folks who wanted some Thai food. We walked from our hotel, but found the Thai place closed. I saw a restaurant nearby with good reviews, so we ended up at the Blossoming Lotus. As we walked in and were seated, it was pointed out that this place was vegan. "Great!" we all thought,... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the delicious vegan options in this very clean small restaurant. The service was very helpful and friendly. My husband and daughter loved the red beet and feta salad, and several of us loved the stir fried udon noodles with shiitakes and vegetables. We will definitely be back.

Oh my. I remember this dinner extremely fondly. I wish I could've tried more. I have a bottomless pit for a stomach, though I was extremely full early on. We started with the live nachos, which were classic but still interesting, and the brie. That was delicious and I appreciated the subtle texture variations between the jam and the brie.... More

This restaurant is not only charming but omnivores can eat here and come away totally satisfied.I had a Thai taco made of peanut soy curls with cashew sour cream and slaw that was perfect in every way. Their roasted rutabaga soup though was too spicy to eat without a cast iron stomach. Another of our party loved the fig and... More
