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.

Ventured to this place specifically to try the pho- shrimp and vegetables. It was delicious. No problems getting what you want here. The service is friendly and efficient. The place is clean and ingredients are quality. There is no reason to go anywhere else for pho in Minneapolis.

I was in Minneapolist for 5 days and four nights. I ate here for three nights. Nowhere else I ate compared to the food and value and service. I ate at fancy Monello's. I left hungry. Go here. Get a New Zealand white from the spirits store in the same shopping complex and be satisfied. I had the Vietnamese salad... More

I came here with a friend for lunch. We were interested in trying pho for the first time, and this place did not disappoint! He ordered the beef pho, and I had the chicken. We both loved our lunch. The pho is both sweet and savory. Very authentic. The portions are large, and we left full and satisfied. The food... More

During my stay in Minneapolis, we ate lunch here. It is located in a little strip mall down the street from the convention center. Hungry for lunch? They have a special that left us stuffed without cleaning out our wallet! Authentic food, family run.
