The restaurant is in a strip mall, so there is plenty of parking. The food is very good, but nothing special. There is, however, a special menu, which has other items to choose from. You have to ask for it. I wish their dishes had covers ( like they always did in Boston.) The food was warm to cool and... More

The Singapore noodles are amazing! Honestly, everything I have had here is fantastic. A bit pricier than the little Chinese takeout places around, but well worth it. I have been dining here for 10 years with consistently great food and friendly service. The lunch deals are a good value, too.

Excellent steamed shrimp dumplings & fried pork potstickers! Flavors are fresh and service is fine. Had a great vegetarian dish of Bok Choy & Mushrooms. Love that they offer brown rice. Packed on a Tuesday at 6pm! Been eating Chinese all over Washington, DC lately and this place tops them all - including Chinatown offering.

A quiet Wednesday evening get away, great soup and a walnut chicken entree. No pressure, it just seemed like a nice place to relax and talk. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Best Chinese food in town! It's been our go to place for Chinese since it opened. We love the fresh vegetables, the garlic dishes (especially the eggplant), good lomein and fried rice and the best hot and sour soup around! Good prices for lunch and dinner and manager is very friendly and accommodating!

Quiet atmosphere on a rainy night. Everything I ate was absolutely delicious. Soy chicken soup and the Buddha Delight with tofu was excellent. I will definitely return soon! Perfect.

Wonderful place for a fast, healthy Chinese lunch. Food is very good and with the right choices can be very healthy. I got the wonton soup (very flavorful broth) and chicken with cashews and brown rice. You get soup or eggrolls plus rice with the entree for lunch for a very good price. YUM.

The resturant was beautiful and the food looked great but could have been prepared better. The veggies were not cooked enough and I had a couple chucks of ginger in the sauce which made it to strong. The staff is wonderful.

We've only ever ordered takeout from Red Lotus, but the food is pretty good quality as far as Chinese food goes. My Chicken Buddha's Delight was delicious, as is the hot and sour soup. My husband ordered pork belly, which he said was not as good as last time he ordered it, so the dishes aren't always consistent. I'd definitely... More
