First time visit to Lotus Vietnamese. I was introduced by a friend who works at City Hall a block away. Decor is nice. Lots of room between tables. Lots of old wood. Place has character.

The service is efficient, but our server (female) wasn't real talkative - or smiley for that matter. But, we were having a business meeting so it wasn't important.

He ordered the #51 - Charbroiled Pork Balls and Spring Rolls on Vermicelli. I ordered the House Special Charbroiled Short Ribs, Shrimp Paste Wrapped in Bean Curd and Broken Rice with Fried Egg. Add the sweet vinegar/fish sauce and you have a great flavour. Not too overpowering but definitely a flavour that tempts you to keep eating.

Will be back. Very good value.

I have eaten here several times and will definitely go back. They offer a variety of standard Vietnamese dishes, and I have tried several, which were very tasty. My favourite, though, is the Pad Thai which is one of the new additions to the menu. I have had both the chicken and the prawn, and they were both delicious. They are generous with the prawns, and there are usually at least 7 large prawns, cooked to perfection. They are also happy to accomadate special requests such as additions or exclusions to a menu selection, which is very nice for the gluten sensitive among us. On my last trip I asked if they could do a side order of steamed broccoli for me, and they happily brought me a delicious and generous portion, which I thoroughly enjoyed. They are located just off MacLeod Trail, so they are easy to get to. The atmosphere is low key and pleasant, and the service is excellent!

Typical portions of tasty Vietnamese fare at the typical price. I had and would recommend the House Special Vermicelli, which comes with pork, rolls, shrimp, shrimp pate wrap, and meatballs. My companion also enjoyed the vermicelli with pork and spring roll.
We were there in early on a Saturday evening and it wasn't busy. There are a few parking spots in the lane behind the building.
