Lotus Cafe has pretty good Chinese (non-takeout) food for a strip mall. My boyfriend, his Mom, and I came in on a Saturday at around 8, upon his Mom's recommendation. She had been there a few times and there were some dishes she liked, so...More

I reviewed this previously and gave it a great review, and have been coming here for many years. Wow, have things changed. The management or ownership must have changed also. While some of the employees are the same there are some new ones too who...More

Visited yesterday, mid afternoon. Place was busy with locals. I give credos for an extensive menu. However, except for the Chef Specialties, there were no descriptions. I ordered Zar Jiang Mein: (comments imbedded into their explanation) NOODLES which were chewed and left a mushy taste...More

Been going there for years Believe either the chef or ownership is new. Portions have shrunken and some of the old flavor zest is missing.
