We went to Chinatown for the first time and tried this place. Loved the cauliflower with cheese, deep fried with the most delicious creamy, garlic sauce. Totally Asian and not we would expect. The crispy duck was on par. The soft crab lost its crunch because of the tamarind sauce. A bit confused about this one. Massive serves, so don't... More

We went as a group of three to this restaurant on a Sunday and ordered one of the banquet meals at $35 per person. We were served numerous dishes and enjoyed each of them. The restaurant is licensed with a ranger of beers, wines and spirits available. Give this restaurant a try, you won't be let down.

Look China town is old, run down and pretty dodge at best of times however I always enjoy the food at red lotus as it is consistent in flavour and a great price. If you can put aside the dusty decor and old furniture and focus on the food you will not be disappointed. They have an overly large menu... More

If you can get past the 'sticky' floors, some of the food here by others in out group looked average (but ok), but unfortunately I ordered a pork stir-fry dish. Unfortunately the pork used in the dish was fatty off-cuts - totally inedible and totally unacceptable. As someone else had commented this restaurant is more "Chinese flavours than Vietnamese" ......

Red Lotus: great staff, happy and singing. Cool and Classy. I Had the beef pho, this is in my top 3 best phos in brisbane. Just pipped Pho B across the mall. Miles ahead of District 1. Better than The Vietnamese Restaurant. Will be back with family.

Dined solo at the Red Lotus, a wide selection on the menu and attentive service. Very enjoyable food at a reasonable price (for the centre of the city).

The menu looked nice but the food was pretty basic. More Chinese flavours than Vietnamese. Expensive for a meal based on the quality. longtime around the corner is much nicer but you need to book. Twice cooked pork and roast duck were decent. Not my kind of food. Won't go back.

I go there for their week day lunchtime specials. I am a steak chips and salad fan but I can assure you this establishment serves the best ever steak and for only $12 plus $1 for a can of drink!!! Bargain!!!
