Another amazing lunch at Lotus! Professional wait staff with an eye to the customers needs and to die for dumplings and dishes make it my go to restaurant for any occasion.
We love this restaurant and have been back a few times now. We are a group of friends from the Central Coast, Blue Mountains, Western Sydney and Inner Sydney City - this is the perfect location for our regular get-togethers. Too good to even think about anywhere else! Authentic food, great service at competitive prices. Menu changes regularly so we never eat the same thing over, only that special dish we love!
Food was average. The eggplant was ok but honestly Chinatown has better for half the price. The dumplings were good. The barramundi was ok but nothing special for its price.
Excellent as always with consistently great food and really attentive service. Best dumplings in Sydney by a distance.
One of my favourite restaurants in the CBD. Whether it's business or pleasure, love taking clients and friends along to experience the gorgeous food and great atmosphere.
Delicious food, great atmosphere and good service. Would recommend!
The food was ok but the service was a bit hit and miss. The cocktails were not good at all and the white wine bought to our table was warm which they tried to fix a number of times and got right the third time. Not sure I would go back.
We have not been here for some time but enjoyed dinner prior to going to the State Theatre on Saturday evening.
Lets just say the Duck Pancakes, Dumplings & Sichuan Chicken were all so well presented & very enjoyable.
Combined with the excellent friendly service & extensive wine list this venue never ceases to impress & is so ideal being close to the theatre.
Third time here. Sensational food and really on the ball service.
- Best duck pancakes my partner and I have ever had.
- Service was amazing, food was the best we had tasted in awhile.
- Great menu selection
- even better drinks menu
Great dumplings and quick, efficient service
Prices are reasonable and the portions large
Good food, good wine, quick service and the atmosphere is pleasant. The staff are always really lovely too.
Very friendly and attentive service. Price level a bit higher but tasty food.
The toilets were not up to standard. They need updating nad repairing.
We went to Lotus for my mums birthday and she loved it! Our server was fantastic and he made a special effort to make sure that my mum had a great night. The food was really good and is reasonably priced.
Excellent food, professional, helpful and attentive staff.
Food is good if bit overpriced. Nice location and decor.
I had lunch here with my friend. Food was yumo but the dishes didn’t all come out together and for a lunch that’s what you want. It’s a good location close to townhall station. If you are looking for somewhere to talk and have a conversation and have overall good food then come here, can be a bit pricey. The dumplings were great. 👍
everything good but waitress was a bit aggressive.
Great food and service, our group were all very satisfied. The private room was perfect for the occasion and nice to have a dedicated waitress.
Excellent food and excellent service! Well priced too!
Always saw it when going to the bookstore, decided to give it a go. Good food, but pricey. Have had better food cheaper elsewhere.
Fantastic food and definitely the best dumplings we've had in Sydney!
The food was good, the noise level was very high, the service was slow and disjointed. The staff were very friendly. Good place for lunch.
Standard Cantonese dishes executed well and with higher than average quality ingredients.
Great ambience and perfect service. Delicious dumplings.
All the lotus group restaurants are amazing - normally my fav in summer is barrangaroo - but for winter ‘the galleries has a great ambience
Good quality food and reliable service.
Lotus is spectacular - the food is out of this world- my son is a chef and loves the food here
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.
Great fresh food, good service. I really enjoyed the experience and will most definitely go back again
Great Food, good value, great service, 2nd visit and will return again.
Excellent location. Very friendly abd helpful staff. Beautifully presented food and an excellent variety of choices.
The atmosphere was good. Some dishes are nice, some are hit and miss. Very expensive.
Dining at Lotus Galeries was a stunning experience, as usual. Just makes me feel happy to be there - to eat the beautiful food and to be served by experienced and wonderful waiters.
Food is good, service is good, bit noisy. Beef and veggies was tender and tasty.
Always excellent food. Service is fine, nothing special but not bad.
Great food, good menu choice, excellent service. Provided with a private dining room - great for a group get-together.
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.
I booked a table for business lunch. The food's great however some main dishes' been served so slow. We have to check with waiter and ask them to check with the kitchen like 3 times.
