    Very relaxing setting (unlike most Chinese restaurants) with the Chinese Gardens. Food is good but limited compared to Lotus' other restaurants.

    Interesting food in such a beautiful, serene setting. The crispy pork is so crunchy, definitely worth trying, The service was very friendly and efficient.

    Lovely setting in the Chinese Gardens with a table overlooking the lake - and the food was delicious. We had quite a late lunch booking and the kitchens were about to close so the food service was a bit hurried, however we had plenty of time to sit and eat and didn’t feel at all rushed afterwards.

    Lovely setting in the Chinese gardens. Food was generally lovely - though can’t recommend the ‘crispy pork belly’ - fatty and served like batteries calamari. Beef with beens and corn was exceptional, and dumplings great. Good wine. A bit understaffed for a Saturday evening.

    We popped in for morning tea. We only tried the souffle $20, a trifle expensive but very yummy. The other bowls looked very interesting, worthy of a return visit.

    Lotus has outdone itself in Chinese Gardens. Superb food, service and setting. Very family friendly too. Our group came with two infants (two prams + high chair) and the staff were very accommodating.

    Beautiful setting and staff were welcoming and helpful. On a chilly day, blankets were offered, and the view of the gardens was delightful. Lovely food.

    Beautiful views of the Chinese Garden. The food was delicious. Enjoyed the rolls, Brussel sprouts and crispy tofu. The waitress sat us near the water. We will definitely be back. :-)

    Service by the hostess (and was also our waitress) was top notch! The other waitresses made sure to top up our water but some of them could have smiled a little more. Food was great, highly recommend the mushroom fried rice and the brussel sprouts (surprisingly). Great views
