This is an excellent asian vegetarian restaurant in Downtown Victoria. Space is a little tight and the ambience is homely. We visited early on a Saturday evening and there were plenty of seats open, but by the time we left at 7:00 the place was full.
Service was fast and we were given water immediately, We ordered Spring Rolls (excellent!), Hot and Sour Soup (very nice), potstickers (disappointing), a spicy (faux) chicken ball dish, and some chow mein. Along with a small rice, it was more than enough for three people, about $15 a head.
Service was efficient and friendly.
I believe there is a buffet lunch.
We'll be back on our next trip to Victoria.

We go nearly every visit to Victoria. So many wonderful vegan/vegetarian options we never run out of things to try.

From the outside it may not look inviting but the food certainly is.
Hazel is the Vegan I go along for the company but must admit more often than not walk away thinking Wow that was a great meal.
The same happened at the Lotus Pond although must admit the pot stickers were filling, glad I only had six. the food was just great, we will certainly eat here again.

One of my favorite little restaurants - food you can believe in. It's a fairly low profile restaurant with a small, modest space but the food is honest, affordable, healthy and always delicious.
I highly recommend Lotus Pond to anyone that loves or wants to try some great vegetarian food.

We've eaten at Lotus Pond several times on visits to Victoria and will keep going back - especially for the lemon chicken! It is just incredible. Good sized menu with reasonable prices but not what I'd call high end food - more similar to Loving Hut. But the food is tasty sand the service is always excellent.
