There were 6 of us including two young children. We had Chinese and Thai food. It was all very good and the waitress was very patient with the children. The only thing was the egg rolls tasted a little sweet to me. When we came back, they recognized us and again we got friendly, attentive service. There was an extensive... More

I stopped in here with two Co-workers for lunch and was surprised how empty and quiet the dining room was. There is a hibachi on the other side of the restaurant that was full. Anyway, service was OK. I ordered from the lunch menu and my colleagues ordered from other parts of the menu which seemed to cause some confusion.... More

Spent $55 and ordered thru Doorstep Delivery. Food was hot and on time, but my order was completely wrong and the one right thing, Gyoza had no dumpling sauce! The pad Thai was too dry to eat and tasted so bad! I feel like I flushed all my money down the drain. I ordered enough to last 3 days and... More

I order the sweet and sour chicken. I have to admit when I first ever ordered it, I noticed it was different from ALL other chinese restuarants I've been too. There are pineapples, onion, and green peppers mixed in with the chicken. However, THIS IS BY FAR THE BEST sweet and sour chicken I have ever had so far. Also,... More

My family and I ate here on Sunday afternoon around 3 o'clock and we were the only ones in the dining area, which was nice. We had a super nice waiter who was very helpful on the menu choices. We started out with crab rangoons, which were awesome! We chose sweet and sour chicken, sesame chicken, and hunan chicken. We... More

Ordered from there because it was local, thought it was kinda pricey, 2 sweet and sour and 5 wonton s. 25 dollars. Anyways, fried rice literally smelled like an ashtray and was a little better with the sweet and sour sauce. Lots of food though, chicken was good. But high price and poor rice quality made it to where we... More

Look, we eat out many times a week. We are in the middle of a 18 state 2000 mile road trip headed back home to Colorado. Tonight 4/22/15 we are in Knoxville, Tenn dining at the Lotus Garden. We drove across Knoxville to get here after reading several reviews. The Lotus seated us late in the evening and treated us... More

If there's one positive thing I can say, it's that there's good service. Our waiter was very nice and attentive. However, that won't make up for quality of food. My husband and I got beef and shrimp curry. My husband's beef curry was lukewarm, and the beef was completely cold. The rice also didn't taste like it was cooked all... More

A $50 order of food that took 40 minutes to get to me. The food was either burnt, overcooked, or bland. Disregard the reviews. The food at this restaurant is the worst Chinese food I've had in a long time. Avoid this terrible restaurant.

My family and I have eaten here several times. It is convenient to our home and my wife likes the food. I am a bit more demanding but there are many high points about this restaurant that do put it above others. The dining area has always been clean on our visits. The service is very friendly and informal. We... More
