I liked that it was clean and comfortable, I liked the quickness of water on the table. Ordering was harder as the waitress though polite and thoughtful was not Chinese, and Chinese do better for sure as they know what is good.Met the owner Mr.Wong, and he was nice and friendly.Fully American. As a seasoned far east person, 10 years... More

This is one of our Go to places for Gluten Free Chinese food. Almost everything can be made GF without sacrificing the taste or quality.

Recently visited the Lotus Garden on east Speedway for a family birthday dinner. It was a Monday night and only a few people were there. Very good menu with many options for everyone. You can order individual meals or family style to share. Service was excellent as was my meal of Orange Chicken. One of the best Chinese food places... More

Not what you would expect for Chinese food. Think more "traditional" Chinese food, like if you went to China. If you wan't American Chinese food then this definitely is not for you.

My family has been coming here since they opened in 1968. Throughout the years there have been many changes and unfortunately not for the better. Last night we came for dinner and were sadly disappointed. The waiter explained that the managers are responsible for making the alcoholic beverages and that they weren't in the restaurant so the wait staff had... More

We have been going to Lotus Garden for the past forty years and the food has always been very good and plentiful. Tonight, while the food was still good, though falling, the quantity was about half what it was the last time we were there (February 2016). We always had leftovers to take home for lunch the next day, tonight... More

We stopped in for dinner when we were in Tucson last year and had to stop in again. Ended up ordering all chicken (lemon chicken, orange chicken and sweet/sour chicken) and house fried rice. Absolutely everything was fabulous and filling - those four dishes filled five of us to the brim, and we were extremely hungry after a long day... More

I visit Lotus Garden once or twice a month for lunch and have love that the my food is prepared with very fresh vegetables and meats and is pretty darn delicious. They have the very best egg rolls in Tucson. The outside is crunchy and you also get the crunch from the veggies inside of the egg roll, and I... More

Tired of Mexican, we tried this pleasant Chinese restaurant. One of our two dishes was terribly salty, the other nice, but nothing special.

We had not been here in a while and were pleasantly surprised to find an extremely good meal. We don't do anything fancy for Chinese food so we usually get one of the "Family Dinners" with the items we like, in this case the $14.00 per person dinner. It was very good and the service fantastic.
