We are frequent visitors to the Lotus Garden! Never dissatisfied. Food is always incredible and service is always friendly. Sam, his family and staff have always treated us like family. One of the best places to eat!

We have been to the Lotus garden several times and it's always great! Most of the time I've had the shrimp special. Hot and tangy and I don't want it to end. Reasonably priced too!

As usual, we came to the Lotus Garden for a delightful meal. We started with the calamari and nime chow appetizers. For my entrée I decided on the cha katna, which consists of steamed whole Chinese broccoli, sautéed mushrooms, your choice of meat (I went with beef) in an oyster/brown sauce. Very similar to , yet different from, the Chinese... More

I last had dinner here with a friend who is originally from Burma. She loves Thai food and the menu at the Lotus Garden is the real deal. Any dish can be tailored to your spice tolerance - mild to hot and tangy!

Best sushi and noodles around. You also get a lot of food for your money. I am obsessed with their Nime chow spring roll appetizer. It comes with the best sauce.

This is a simple, pleasant, and very reasonably priced restaurant. Great for lunch during a work day. Portions are not huge, but certainly satisfying.

Don't get me wrong, the food always tastes fresh and for the most part flavorful, but since the menu has been cut way down, the allure just isn't there for me. High prices, small portions, but overall pretty tasty. Wouldn't go for sushi however, there's very few options and it's mediocre at best.

So many amazing choices, it took us forever to decide. In the end, we split a sushi roll (9 huge pieces) as an app, and were not disappointed. Both entrees were excellent as well. We will be back for sure!

Someone from Utica mentioned this a MUST TRY place - well I'm glad I did! The food here is simply amazing. Try the bee-bong, and make sure to get the spring rolls. They use the freshest ingredients and really put their heart and soul into the product.
