I have visited the Lotus Garden Restaurant about 4 times in the last 2 months. I keep trying different items on the menu and I continue to be impressed by the taste of the meal presented. The service is fast and friendly, the price is...exceptional, and it is a great family ran business I love to support.More

The food was good Chinese food. They were very accommodating for our group of 5, and friendly for our family group including kids. Not elegant dining, but good food typical Chinese. You get what you expect, it’s clean, and friendly.

Had a lunch-special on Saturday before heading to Salt Lake City airport. Not sure about the US, but very unusual in Australia to get a lunch special on the weekend. Had hot and sour soup, one egg roll and kung pao chicken. Also had jasmine...tea. Even with a tip it was only US$10. The food was nice and a good size serving. I would describe it as better than food court but not quite up to an Australian Chinese restaurant. It compared favourably with what I have previously had in the US. Staff were friendky and service was quick. I would go again for a reasonably priced, quick and healthy meal.More

The Lotus Garden Restaurant offers a large lunch special menu. The food was great and very inexpensive. The service was great as well.

While we enjoyed the delightful host/server/cashier, the food was not really good. It wasn't AWFUL, but certainly not worth going back for. Don't visit here....spend your money elsewhere.

Went there at lunch. I was just what you expect, not fancy but good ol'Americanized Chinese food. Solid egg roll, good Hot and Sour soup and the General Tso had really good flavor and there was real chicken. The prices are excellent, definitely will go...back for that Chinese craving!!More

Large buffet. Mongolian Grill. Ice cream, pudding and pie. Sushi. Great place for big appetites. Nice atmosphere and good service. Authentic Chines with an American nod - even green jello 🙃

Had the buffet. We were the only people in the restaurant and maybe it was a slow weeknight regularly so they didn't want to keep a fresh full buffet. You could tell some items had sat untouched for quite some time because it had built...up a crust on the top. The pans were approximately 1/4 full, some were 1/2 full and a couple were completely empty. We avoided the dessert section completely. The cocoanut chicken and sesame chicken were fresh and yummy.More

We arrived in Provo at 3 pm, too late for lunch, too early for dinner. We chose the buffet and it was easy to fill up on fried protein. However, other choices were limited. I'm sure that this would have earned a higher rating if...we'd gone there at a prime time. Good value anyway.More

I have eaten here many times over the years. It is one of my favorite places for orange chicken. All of their items are excellent and tasty. You won't leave hungry. The price is reasonable and the service is always excellent. If you are looking...for a good, clean Chinese Buffet this is a good place to go.More

Nice little place right on Center Street where there are a lot of choices on where to eat. Small but good buffet and not a lot of choices but they do have the Mongolian Grill as a choice. Kind of pricy for lunch but I...suppose Provo is just that kind of place. It was after 1pm so it seemed the proprietors were a little hesitant on reloading their buffet that came with a drink. Patrons continued to roll in though.More

I passed on the Buffett for the single item dinner. Lots to choose from but I selected the Mongolian beef. Tender and tasty. Came with soup and a small spring roll for 6.95. Well wort it.

We have eaten here several times over the past few years and never reviewed it. Today's experience was a bit unique as we came during an off-time - around 4pm. The dinner hour had officially begun but the restaurant was practically empty. Once we were...seated, the cooking started up again, but our first trip through the buffet found a few things remaining from the lunch hour crowd rather than freshly replenished (like dry sweet buns). Still, the food is normally very good, and once things got rolling, today was no exception. They offer a good variety of dishes - cold and hot, sushi (in the back), desserts, and a Mongolian BBQ - make it your own way. We enjoy watching them grill the items we have personally selected, although they only offer a handful of sauce options. The service is generally good, and the price reasonable. What's not to like? Except maybe the 4pm timeframe.More

This place is kind of hard to find. I took my brother there this week and he said he has driven past it for 11 years and never knew it was there. Food is very good and they don't skimp on the buffet. All the...food is good and like any buffet it can sit out a little long if you are there in off hours. I've visited this place for 15+ years a few times a year and the food is good. Try the coconut chicken!More
