Lotus served excellent food at a reasonable price. We had the lumch combos for $8.50 each. You can get a soup along with eggroll, wanton, or spring roll, with a rice choice. The food was fresh and the place is a great find given we...More

Either location, you are going to find a member of the family. And come in enough times, and you will be treated like family. Great for takeout or dine in, and bonus, the new location serves drinks made with fresh squeezed OJ and lime juice....More
