The food was delicious. The standout dishes were the pepper beef and crispy eggplant.

There were creative desserts and drinks.

Lovely decor and attentive service.

The price charged for tea was a bit steep.

Food was delicious, service was flawless and the ambience was perfect for lunch.

A fire alarm resulted in a 15 minute delay to cooking time, however the staff kept us informed and were very attentive.

We were there fora birthday and lunch and again, the staff made an effort to acknowledge the celebration. Wonderful standards in service and quality.

The choice of dumplings for vegetarians was disappointing or perhaps we were not told where to look. I saw one choice, with shiitake mushrooms. We asked but weren’t helped very much.

Unfortunately a large table of mostly men (don't take the wrong way). Very loud so we could not hear ourselves talk..but we love the food.

This was our second visit to Lotus at the Galeries. Both times we have been, the service has been exceptional, the food is delicious and fresh and served extremely quickly. The chefs obviously take great pride in their work - the desserts in particular look like beautiful sculptures! The menu is broad and there are options for multiple budgets, but would suggest not trying to scrimp on cash for this restaurant as there is so much good food (and amazing cocktails) to have. Will definitely be back again!

Overall, excellent as usual. One piece of feedback - All of the food came out together. It would have been better to enjoy the entrees first then have the other meals come out a little more spaced so that we could relax and enjoy a bit more. Felt a bit rushed.
