Food was good, dumplings were excellent with very tender and smooth skins. However, service was unexpectedly slow on a Wednesday night. Main dishes came out sporadically and made eating it difficult since we ordered dishes to go with rice. Specify that you would like all main dishes to come out at the same time as the rice dishes if you come here.

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.
