Very attentive service right from the beginning. Great lamb pie! We were very impressed with the crust as well as the stew inside.

Great food that’s semi-affordably priced! The fish of the day was barramundi and that was really delicious, would also recommend the vegetarian san choi baos, and fried rice was great too. We didn’t expect the honeyed eggplant to be deep fried so keep that in mind (still delicious though). Great atmosphere and comfy chairs. Would recommend over any of the merivale Chinese places. Would return.

Excellent service, delicious food. Second time going there and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The service is the best thing about Lotus.

The staff were very nice here and the food was quite good, but the pancakes were undercooked and we had a hair in our crispy duck which was unpleasant. To be fair they replaced the dish and gave us a free desert but it was all a bit disappointing by then.

Yum Cha banquet for lunch was a lot of food! We could have easily shared 2 between 3 people. Good food, good service. High end Chinese food.
