This is the cheapest place in Smiths Falls that serves chinese food. Their lunch deal is $5.49 for a plate in restaurant including egg roll. It is not the best tasting chinese food in Smiths Falls but it is still very tasty for the price and in walking distance of down own on Main street.

I'm part Chinese and have been raised on REAL Chinese food so I do know Chinese Food. There's limited choice in Smiths Falls but Lotus House is probably my second favourite Chinese food restaurant in Town. My favourite is King Star Buffet which has comparable quality but a wider choice. To those whining about the chicken balls at Lotus House...chicken... More

Found this restaurant off the main street when going to the Rideau Canal Museum. They only take cash, which could have been a problem because I don't usually carry any. The food was good. The restaurant was very warm, but in fairness it was humid and hot out. The waiter never smiled or said your welcome when we said thank... More

I grew up in Smiths Falls, and for years Lotus House was the standard for Chinese food, by which I judged every single other restaurant. Their competition in Smiths Falls is Man Ling's which doesn't use MSG and has a more light and "healthy" vibe. For delicious Americanized Chinese Food that could be called soul food, I cannot recommend Lotus... More

This place must of served us the left overs from the night before. The chicken balls were rubbery, The egg roll must have been cooked more than twice. The place was clean and the service good. Thats it. I won't be back.

My husband and I went last night with our two kids. Combination plates were overflowing with food for 10 dollars. Egg rolls here are by far my favorite although over salted. Everything here is very salty but its no different from any other Chinese place in town in being so. I ordered beef and broccoli and aside from the garlic... More

Ordered out there Friday night, August 30th and it was terrible. The rice was barely edible, the vegetable lo mein noodle was so salty you couldn't eat it, the chicken balls were like rubber and barely cut with a steak knife, the egg rolls were cold and the beef and broccoli had no taste other than salt, and the meat...
