I lived in Mooresville 15+ years ago and used to enjoy dining at Lotus. I was staying in the area recently and was really happy to find that not only were they still there but that the food and service were still fantastic. It was like visiting an old friend.

We've been going to Lotus since it opened back in the mid 80's. We've never been disappointed. Family friendly, with excellent food and service. My daughter and I always go for the scallion chicken - best we've ever had. Grand-kids like it too.

We had to go Chinese for the holiday & what a great choice! I had the ever popular Scallion Chicken. My first time for this. Wonderful! Crispy chicken bites in a savory/sweet & slightly spicy (as I requested) sauce with white rice. Great service. Pleasant wait staff. Definitely will come back.

You don't last for almost 30 years somewhere without being the best! One of the few places I crave! Best "scallion chicken", "pork fried rice", and chicken wings around. Want variety get a "pu pu platter" for 2...awesome! Want great seafood, try the "oceanic"

We have been eating at Lotus for over 30 years. In my opinion it is the best Chinese food in town. Great lunch value as well.

We had lunch there. I ordered the Beef with peppers. It was an ample serving. The wife had the sweet and sour chicken. She brought home half of it. The portions were that large. Service was outstanding. I never had to ask for a refill. The server even ask her if she would like a carry out box. Food was... More

My husband and his family have been getting Chinese food from Lotus for over 15+ years now. It is the only Chinese restaurant we will go to. They are super friendly and know us by name when we call for a pick up order. I highly recommend the scallion chicken, pork fried rice, and crab rangoons!

Diners are always greeted with a smile and a friendly face at Lotus. The service is outstanding and the food is always delicious. Our favorites, Scallion Chicken, Broccoli and Beef, and Sweet and Sour Shrimp are very popular. Every dish is prepared fresh and delivered to the table piping hot.

We live in the Hickory area now, but any excuse to head to Mooresville to eat at Lotus will work. We have tried plenty of Chinese restaurants, but nothing meets up. We love the Scallion chicken, egg rolls, & fortune cookies! Service is always friendly & prompt. Come back as much as we can. Would highly recommend it to all.
