First time here. Quick friendly service, good chicken pho and vegetable spring rolls. Best broth I've had around here. Nice sizes serving. Good veggie spring rolls to go along with the pho. I come back for more noodles.

A very nice menu of Vietnamese specialties, especially Pho's and Bahn Mi's. Also, some Chinese Style Noodle and Rice dishes. The location is kind of remote, across from Hoag Hospital. Very hospitable owner. Very large portions for very reasonable prices. No alcohol served at present...More

Came across the Lotus Bistro unexpectly and just decided to stop for lunch. The food was very nice, spring rolls and Pho Bo, my favourite! The staff were very helpful and it was very pleasant all round. Will certainly visit again.

Enjoyed a pork Banh Mi and a Pho Ga here. Very delicious soup, and sandwich. Easy going, casual atmosphere, with friendly and capable staff. The food came out quickly, and really there were just no complaints for us.

Loved the Pho! BIG portion. Next time I'll get the small. The banh mi was great, too. The baguette was very fresh as was everything else. Excellent service as well. We were made to feel welcome and were very well cared for. The owner came...More
