“Lunch buffet was good”
Review of Lotus Restaurant

Reviewed 6 August 2018

Seems like a pretty good value. The food was good, big selection of not only Chinese but some pasta, chicken fingers, fries, etc. were also available. Servers were all very friendly. It was pretty busy at lunch, but there never seemed to be an issue with supply at the buffet tables.

Staff was friendly and worked fast. We got up to the buffet in no time and our drinks were waiting for us when we got back to the table. Food is delicious—all of it. There's typical American food such as pizza and chicken nuggets, but also delicious sushi and lo mein. Plenty of desserts to choose from too

My boyfriend and I stopped here for dinner after his class on Saturday. We weren’t aware of the buffet on weekends and the server was pretty pushy about it. We wanted to order off the menu instead of the buffet and she insisted it would “take awhile” if we did that but gave us menus anyway. In reality, the food came out quickly so not sure where that discrepancy came from. We felt like she did not want us to order from the menu because she would need to serve our table more. That was awkward and not appreciated.

The food- the scallion pancake was delicious! Would definitely get again. I felt everything else was so so. I got the curry shrimp noodles. My boyfriend got pad Thai and didn’t really like it. The crab rangoons were ok- nothing to rave about. The portions are large- you get your money’s worth.

Overall- it was an ok experience other than feeling like we were an inconvenience because we didn’t want the buffet. Not sure if I would go again.

Wonderful place to go. The family that owns this place really take care of it and take pride in what they do. Love the coconut chicken :)
