                                                  Lotus never fails to deliver quality food and amazing service. The menu is interesting with many of the regular dishes proving to be popular choices. We love to try different things each time we go and are never disappointed with any dish. I think the entire menu is a favourite and proves to be a hard decision every time we go. The wine selection is also great and very impressed with the selection available. The cocktails are interesting and a really good way to start the experience at Lotus.

This place was great, the ambiance is also fabulous, it’s very buzzy but you can still hold a conversation. We had the kung pau chicken, Angus beef, eggplant dish, calamari and an assortment of dumplings. All thoroughly recommended.

                                                  Great restaurant, and the staff were amazing. Friendly and informative. The food was great, their prawn stir fired and the roast duck.. yumm. Secluded but not too far to get the Staff attention. It was tad cold and we didn't dress appropriately.. otherwise a perfect place to catch up with friends. Lively but not noisy. Highly recommended

                                                  The food was great, but as two younger girls the service was not it and we were made to feel it was a privilege to sit in the good part of the restaurant as it was fully booked. It was not.

                                                  We choose Lotus for my birthday lunch with my family and we were very impressed. The restaurant interior is really quite special - it has a sophisticated, contemporary spacious feel. We had a great table tucked in a corner against the windows with views to the QVB. The service was faultless - the perfect combination of attentive, polite, warm, helpful and witty. Everyone at our table - ranging in age from 10 to 81 years, really enjoyed the food. The lobster & prawn dumplings were delicious and the crispy skin chicken was the best we've ever had. HIghly recommend the Japanese style scallops - fabulous. Can't wait to go back.

                                                  Our party of six, which included a former head chef at a well known Eastern suburbs eatery, could not fault the quality of food or service at Lotus Galeries. At least a dozen dishes were ordered and none disappointed with the feedback from all being “they were all yummy”. Lotus Galeries is much preferred over the other Lotus options in Sydney which were tried when Galeries was closed for some time during Covid. The service was particularly attentive with manager Ryan Bishell seemingly keeping a close eye on operations. Needless to say we’ll be back.

                                                  We had the Valentine's Day set menu with matching wines. Delicious food and great wine pairings, prompt and attentive service. A small downside was that the area we were in was noticeably colder than the rest of the restaurant.

                                                  The serving staff were very attentive and friendly. My guests really enjoyed the variety of tastes with their selections - 2 of them had not been there before and will come again. We liked where we sat - at the George St end of the restaurant, as we could enjoy the view of the lovely QVB building, and were well spaced from other guests so noise was minimal. Thanks
