Look China town is old, run down and pretty dodge at best of times however I always enjoy the food at red lotus as it is consistent in flavour and a great price. If you can put aside the dusty decor and old furniture and focus on the food you will not be disappointed. They have an overly large menu... More

If you can get past the 'sticky' floors, some of the food here by others in out group looked average (but ok), but unfortunately I ordered a pork stir-fry dish. Unfortunately the pork used in the dish was fatty off-cuts - totally inedible and totally unacceptable. As someone else had commented this restaurant is more "Chinese flavours than Vietnamese" ......

Red Lotus: great staff, happy and singing. Cool and Classy. I Had the beef pho, this is in my top 3 best phos in brisbane. Just pipped Pho B across the mall. Miles ahead of District 1. Better than The Vietnamese Restaurant. Will be back with family.

Dined solo at the Red Lotus, a wide selection on the menu and attentive service. Very enjoyable food at a reasonable price (for the centre of the city).

The menu looked nice but the food was pretty basic. More Chinese flavours than Vietnamese. Expensive for a meal based on the quality. longtime around the corner is much nicer but you need to book. Twice cooked pork and roast duck were decent. Not my kind of food. Won't go back.

I had the most mind blowingly amazing creamy garlic tofu dumplings!! I want to eat them everyday! We also got some delicious spring rolls and satay chicken. It was great to find food that is just so good and flavoursome!

We were quickly seated at our table, then the wait started and we waited and we waited and we waited. Finally after getting a waitresses attention and after they had served others that came after we did, our order was taken along with drinks. Meal arrived, It was nice enough but it was nothing special. It was Vietnamese food. Again... More
