A little walk from the hotel district, but worth the exercise. not fancy inside, no liquor license, but the Vietnamese food seems genuine and very tasty.nice to eat well and not spend $30. per person.

Its in a store front in a strip mall but don't let that fool you. This place is great! The pho was absolutely sublime. The folks running the restaurant were friendly and the service was quick. Their Vietnamese items are very authentic and delicious and their Chinese items are solid as well. Great prices, huge portions.

We really enjoyed the Lotus. The staff was amazingly friendly and the food was great. It doesn't look like much from the outside (old strip mall), but very clean and ample seating inside. Although, mostly take out.

Most customers that stopped in seemed to be regulars (good sign for a restaurant), names and dishes remembered. I think that gives a place a home feel and makes us want to return.

Cheese puffs were american type.
The dish I had was very fresh veggies and awesome tender chicken.
Veggie fried rice was good with lots of veggies.

Great for an afternoon out and about Minneapolis!

Parking can be a bit tricky, find a spot on the street...worth the walk.

Inexpensive south east asian food. Good if you want to grt it to go. The spring rolls are decent. Pho looked good. The beef with hot peppers was sweet and sour which we enjoyed.
