My husband and I have eaten at the Lotus Inn many times over the years. We were not disappointed, the buffet has such a wide selection of food. A very varied salad bar with a lot of fruit and of course the ice cream in many flavors. The service was very good and they were fairly busy. There were two... More

Stopped by for lunch buffet recommended by a friend. We arrived about 11:30 and they were still setting up the buffet. The selection was quite extensive and it all looked very fresh. There were a lot of deep fried items and some interesting veggie dishes as well. The salad bar was pretty sparse and quite disappointing. Desserts were also minimal,... More

I made the mistake of eating there and was sick for days. Greasy, oily, and down right NASTY! They use so much oil, you can smell nothing but used cooking oil for 300 feet on any side of the building.

Mediocre at best. I used to go all the time with friends with big appetites because of the buffet, I never had a good meal. Won't ever go again.

I visit Kamloops at least three times a year, and never miss an evening meal at the Lotus Inn. The smorg is to die for; numerous different foods, with an awesome taste found nowhere else. Service is quick and friendly. Prices are very reasonable. Try the takeout...WOW!

If you're hungry you can walk in and eat at their buffet however food quality is mediocre at best. A staple of Chinese food is the chicken ball and theirs was so dry and old I couldn't pierce it with my fork. Some other options at the buffet were good including the honey garlic wings but the dessert offerings were... More

We ate here on our Rockies tour, the buffet was great fresh food and plenty of it, the service polite and pleasant, the decor was dated and everything looked like it needed a good clean, if Chinese is your bag you won't go wrong, Alan and Penny

We stopped for Lunch there, and the place was HUGE inside... We walked over to check out the Buffet, and it was amazing...a variety that we haven't seen for some time in the Interior... There were also Traditional ASIAN Foods and Soups there, which we really like... I didn't see anything in that Buffet I wouldn't go back to for... More
