I had read some very average reviews of this place, but a friend said the food was good and quite cheap so we tried it. Pros- Food was nice- not great but quite nice. The 'duck' was really tasty and does a good job of pretending to meat. Fried rice wasn't bad. Prices are about as cheap as you'll get... More

The menu is extensive, lots of differently named dishes, most of which came with the same vegetables and only a slightly different sauce. I like mock meat, and don't mind that it comes frozen as the vegetables are fresh. But the place doesn't look clean and well organised. Having read other reviews, we were on the lookout to check the... More

We have visited twice now and each time we have enjoyed the tasty vegan food. One of our family members is vegan and gluten intolerant and the waitress was very helpful in advising which dishes to choose. My husband and I had duck, fish and chicken satay we were quite impressed with the food, being meat eaters usually.

Shocking... Food is not fresh, all frozen. Service is very un-professional and rude. Overpriced. Overall I will never go back to this place.

Tables very grubby and sticky. Woman manager dropped a fork on the dirty floor and picked it up and put it back on the table. Food was so so - quite tasty but a lot of pretend meat. Why serve pretend meat? We were told not to eat the decorations (fancy cut veges) on the platters as these were reused... More

Reasonably good vegetarian food. Nothing very fancy. Service can certainly be improved with at least good smile on your face. Reasonable price. I took a business colleague recently and he really enjoyed the food.

We often go to Lotus, we love the Vegetarian dishes, you certainly get fooled into thinking it is real meat/seafood. No onion or garlic in any of the dishes, I always have Satay Chicken with peanut sauce & coconut rice with pickles. Followed by Jasmine tea..there is a vegetarian supermarket attached, with every conceivable veg item you could imagine..everything is... More

The food was oily.The manager who is the old lady rips off people by offering food which is not on the menu. The portion size is very little according to the price. Prantha /Roti and lots of other things they prepare is not fresh( frozen). i will never ever go back again

We come here all the time. The food is amazing. Yes the decor and lack of service is a bit of a problem but you have to just live with that and not get stressed about it. I think English is not a strong point there. The Christmas cd does get changed occasionally with an instrumental one but the Christmas... More

My first and only visit to Lotus Vegetarian was with a large group of 15 friends. The website only advertises an all-you-can eat buffet which apparently has not been offered in years! The service staff don't write down orders, and they brought out some dishes that had not been ordered, and set them down even though none of us ordered... More
