Horrible horrible customer service. I asked the waitress for a high chair for my two year old and her reaction was he is too big for a high chair. Never knew waiters these days decide weather a child needs high chair or not 😡 she kept on arguing till I told her" 5th " time that I needed one. She... More

I eat at this restaurant regularly, lunch and dinners. It is an authentic Chinese restaurant. The food is good and the service is good. They remember the regular customers and their favorite dishes.

We came here pretty late in the evening and the waiters were friendly. I had some specific instructions for my noodles and they made it perfectly.

Fresh vegetable every day, excellent select of authentic Chinese dishes, duck is awesome. Service is fast but good, hot tea is immediately brought to the table. Vast menu with many lunch portions. Every meal comes with soup and choice of white, brown and fried rice.

The food was ok, but I was extremely rushed even though the restaurant was virtually empty. What's the hurry that staff would want people to rush out. Staff's distain for clients was not acceptable on my last visit.

We got rave review from friends about this place. Went there for a quick bite late in the evening and only got fried rice and fried flat rice noodles (chow fun). Both were done without too much grease and not too salty. Authentic enough for us and will go back with a larger group to try more of the dishes.

Lotus garden is where we go when we are craving for authentic dishes like 沙锅鲈鱼煲,竹生瑶柱丝瓜煲. Foods here are very consistent. Service are good. Looks for menu on the broad for authentic food.

First thing first. This place's owner really need to take customer's advice seriously. The place has a quick order menu for near a decade. One of the items, Beef with Rabe on Rice, is misspelled (the 'b' in 'Rabe' is spelled upside down, guess how that come out). I pointed that out every time I go there. The owner obviously... More

You will get a fresh meal, served very well, but I did not feel they seasoned their food. Have to only rate it average for that. Very good service and atmosphere is better than average.

I have had lunch at this restaurant several times and the food is always consistently good and fresh tasting. The service is very good and they get you in and out quickly. I highly recommend the lunch specials which offer a variety of meals with soup or egg roll. Large size fried wontons are complimentary with duck sauce. I really... More
