“Better than Expected”

Cuisines: Chinese
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 20, 2013

My wife and I are new to Austin, and having lived in the Houston and New York areas for the past 20 years we were not expecting to find a Chinese restaurant which met our expectations. We had seen the Lotus Hunan while shopping near by a few weeks ago and stopped in last night. We were impressed the fried dumplings were excellent, the pan fried noodles very good and the Garlic pork nicely spiced but a bit too oily.

As the restaurant was empty (except for the constant line of take out customers) , the service was excellent. The atmosphere was ok but too brightly lit.

We will be returning. Certainly as good as any neighborhood Chinese restaurant we have found.

We were looking for a place to eat Asian food at 9:15 pm. Googled our location an this place came up and they had good reviews, and were open till 10:00. We were the only customers there, and they had started closing up (counting the register, and cleaning tables and chairs) When we came in they greeted us in a very warm manner and were super friendly throughout our entire meal. We love Asian food and eat it a lot. All four of us felt that or dishes were of the best tasting of almost any we have had. It was fresh and hot, even at the end of the day. All of the vegetables were bright and crisp...not a soggy shade of green. Do not hesitate in going to this restaurant.

We mainly do delivery from Lotus Hunan and have never once been disappointed by a late delivery or a poor meal. Lotus Hunan has been our favorite for Chinese food since 1997. The quality, consistency and price can't be beat!

Loved the affordable lunch specials with a group of 6. Sesame chicken was crazy good. Soup and eggroll comes with the meal. Owned and operated by a super nice family. Nothing fancy inside, and it's hidden in a roadside mall. Check it out if you are in the Westlake area.

Although nearby, we'd never eaten here until I was hungry for chinese food, and our usual Chinese restaurant had closed. This was the closest place to eat Chinese food, and I was sorry we hadn't found it sooner. The wrap on the egg rolls was delicately thin and very crisp. So good! I had the chicken and almonds and can verify that it was delicious.
