The food was excellent and In House Service as well. People were Social Distancing and picking up while I had a short wait for Take Out...it was quicker than calling ahead and being put on hold. The prices are moderate and comparable to other Big...Cities in Texas.Meals were Entree, Soup of Choice, Egg Roll and Choice of Rice...everyone shared at the table at home.More

The lunch plates of soup, rice, entrée, and eggroll are a good value and a variety from burgers, tacos and pizza. If standard Americanized Chinese is what you want, this will not disappoint. The locals obviously like it as the place is busy with folks...loading up on carbs and sodium. That is why I went and that is what I got.More

There are a couple of Lotus Cafes in town. I love another one but the family likes this one better. Off the Boca Chica strip can be a heck getting in and out unless you take the backroad. Traditional chinese fare. Daily and nightly specials,...The cashew chicken and triple crown are favorites. The staff is friendly and the layout can be a little noisy.More

Very good Chinese food. Basic dishes, noodles, soups. Nice place for lunch or dinner. Nice family place.

I ordered delivery to my hotel and the food was excellent. They had told me 45 minutes but the driver was there in less than 20. The only thing negative is that I asked for fried rice with each plate and they sent me white...which we ended up trashing.More

It's been around for quite some time now so that alone should tell you something. Everything I've ordered here has been pretty darn good. I way rather have Chinese here than at a buffet. I am not a fan of buffets.

Its hard to mess up good Chinese food. Having said that this Asian spot serves up all your traditional array of Asian dishes. Everything is good, nothing is extraordinary, dishes are simply on point. The only quam I may have is that the General Tso's...Chicken is a bit under par. The sauce seems to be lacking flavor and the chicken is too heavily battered. You may end up biting into a morsel of batter you thought was a piece of chicken. Despite that short coming, Lotus Café makes it up by serving up some delicious, well balanced, perfectly made cocktails. That and the fact that Lotus Café may be the only Chinese restaurant that home delivers your orders! So the next time you wanna stay in, relax, and chill in the comfort of your own home, Lotus Café will serve you up at your place!More
