Best Pho around. They let it stew for days. Joe took a chicken bone and it easily disintegrated with a pinch. Large portions. You might start with medium hot if you like it hot. Wait can be long.

This place is cluttered and not clean, but it was great! I felt like the older Vietnamese gentleman that waited on us was wonderful...it felt like he invited to come to Vietnam and eat at his house...and the food and jasmine tea were outstanding!!

The food is awesome. Large portions and taste great. The hot and sour soup is my favorite. Just as the other reviewers state it does take a long time because everything is made fresh. We have gone here for years and now live in another...More

We have been going to Lotus for the last 15 years. I have only ordered the combination soup, summer and spring rolls, and fried banana dessert- a magnificent meal altogether. I have taken family, friends, and coworkers. Sooner or later I run into them again...More

I've been going to lotus for several years and have never had a bad meal. This unassuming restaurant prides itself on making delicious dishes from scratch. I especially enjoy the vermicelli and the lotus special. The egg rolls are also excellent.

Wide selection of dishes. Dishes are prepared from scratch so service is relatively slow. Bring your own wine and someone you like to talk to. My wife and I go once a week when we are in Memphis. There are many regulars. Decor is simple.

The pho was wonderful -- perhaps the best I have had anywhere in the country. Fine, fresh ingredients prepared slowly and carefully. Enthusiastic and personal service from the owner. Don't miss this one.

If you visit Lotus on a Saturday night, the odds are good that we will be there. The food is wonderful. We have brought several friends, and no one - even food snobs - have yet to find something that they didn't think was incredible....More
