Food was good and delivered quickly. Hot tea was only like warm, though. We were seated quickly and the service was very friendly. Few parking spaces available and there were a lot of people double parked.

It's a small Vietnamese restaurant with a big heart owners. Pho- of any type - refreshing. Fresh spring rolls. BUN ME- I definitely misspelled it- and doesn't matter- it's a biggest juicy sandwich- it may be a fusion of American Vietnamese- but it's satisfying and delicious . They are always busy at peak hours . Worth a wait if line-... More

Last night we met friends and ate at the Lotus for the first time for an early dinner before a concert. The menu is extensive. We ordered four quite different dishes and all four of us were very impressed with the exceptionally delicious food. The wait staff is attentive and helpful without interrupting. They quickly and without hesitation allowed a... More

We've lived in the neighborhood 20+ years and have never been disappointed by the food or service at Lotus. In fact, we had them cater my husband's college graduation party! The game-changer for me is when they added Pho to the menu. A big bowl of that delicious soup and an order of their fresh spring rolls, and I'm on... More

The pho stew was the most amazing vegetarian soup I have ever tasted! So hearty, so delicious and so cheap... do not miss this place! They get very busy anytime past 6 pm so arrive early and hungry.

Our trip to this restaurant was born of our being tired and wanting something close by to where we were staying. We found it in a strip shopping center and crowded. We had to wait fifteen minutes for a table and were passed by many locals taking food out while we waited. There is not a lot of room. the... More

Took the recommendations from this site and dined here. Around a $6 uber from down town, and the driver said he had taken others who followed the recommendations. Dined for around 12 bucks, good food. quick service and was very busy

We were looking for Pho and were not disappointed, they also do take out and delivery. Just an absolutely delicious broth, I had it with the tofu and have no complaints. The bubble tea was also excellent. They have a few parking spot right in front that say 20 minutes or less. We were driving a full size SUV and... More

Much better than average. The spring rolls (not deep fried) were good thigh the shrimp sparse. The curry chicken was excellent and well prepared, with a good portion and more attention to subtle flavors than typical.
