We went for the lunch buffet and I'd say there were about 45 items, or more, to choose from but most things were just okay. The food was all fairly fresh but also bland. I sampled almost everything they had to offer but never experienced a single 'yum' moment. The price was good and the staff friendly but I doubt... More

You get what you pay for, sadly they just slopped/crammed a med size take out container with 4 items what a mess, now for the best part the delivery was made in a KFC paper bag leading to quite the laugh

My husband and I have eaten at the Lotus Inn many times over the years. We were not disappointed, the buffet has such a wide selection of food. A very varied salad bar with a lot of fruit and of course the ice cream in many flavors. The service was very good and they were fairly busy. There were two... More

Stopped by for lunch buffet recommended by a friend. We arrived about 11:30 and they were still setting up the buffet. The selection was quite extensive and it all looked very fresh. There were a lot of deep fried items and some interesting veggie dishes as well. The salad bar was pretty sparse and quite disappointing. Desserts were also minimal,... More

I made the mistake of eating there and was sick for days. Greasy, oily, and down right NASTY! They use so much oil, you can smell nothing but used cooking oil for 300 feet on any side of the building.

Mediocre at best. I used to go all the time with friends with big appetites because of the buffet, I never had a good meal. Won't ever go again.

I visit Kamloops at least three times a year, and never miss an evening meal at the Lotus Inn. The smorg is to die for; numerous different foods, with an awesome taste found nowhere else. Service is quick and friendly. Prices are very reasonable. Try the takeout...WOW!

If you're hungry you can walk in and eat at their buffet however food quality is mediocre at best. A staple of Chinese food is the chicken ball and theirs was so dry and old I couldn't pierce it with my fork. Some other options at the buffet were good including the honey garlic wings but the dessert offerings were... More
