We have been going to the Lotus for over 20 years. Still one of our favorites (and we've been to a few !) Excellent, unmatched and consistent dinners with a attentive staff. Try their Shaking Beef or Almond Chicken.

I have been going to the Lotus for years. Recently, there's been a noticeable step down in quality. The portions appear to be smaller and the quality lower. For example, the spring rolls, a long time favorite of mine, taste and look to contain more...More
