We have been eating at Lotus for over 30 years. In my opinion it is the best Chinese food in town. Great lunch value as well.

We had lunch there. I ordered the Beef with peppers. It was an ample serving. The wife had the sweet and sour chicken. She brought home half of it. The portions were that large. Service was outstanding. I never had to ask for a refill. The server even ask her if she would like a carry out box. Food was... More

My husband and his family have been getting Chinese food from Lotus for over 15+ years now. It is the only Chinese restaurant we will go to. They are super friendly and know us by name when we call for a pick up order. I highly recommend the scallion chicken, pork fried rice, and crab rangoons!

Diners are always greeted with a smile and a friendly face at Lotus. The service is outstanding and the food is always delicious. Our favorites, Scallion Chicken, Broccoli and Beef, and Sweet and Sour Shrimp are very popular. Every dish is prepared fresh and delivered to the table piping hot.

We live in the Hickory area now, but any excuse to head to Mooresville to eat at Lotus will work. We have tried plenty of Chinese restaurants, but nothing meets up. We love the Scallion chicken, egg rolls, & fortune cookies! Service is always friendly & prompt. Come back as much as we can. Would highly recommend it to all.

Best chinese food since I lived in chixago. Fried rice is tssty. Lots of chinese restaurants basically taste like food court food...this is not one of those. Only complaint is shrimp in fried rice weren't all deviened. Only about 50%.

We hadn't been to Lotus in several years, so when we were passing thru town last week, we stopped in for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. Our meal and the service was as good as it was the last time we ate there. The staff is very attentive and the food was scrumptious. We loved it and can't wait to... More
