We like to eat a variety of foods from all over the world so when we saw a chance to get Vietnamese cooking in Watertown, we had to try it. We were not disappointed and enjoyed our time a the Lotus Garden and recommend it for anyone that likes something oriental yet different.

Our stop was a treat for my wife who likes Vietnamese food, especially pho. For the entree, we found the egg rolls to be delightfully spicy and delicious. She had the foo and I chose the pork strip with chicken fried rice. We both felt that the dishes were great. If you're up for something different at a very affordable... More

First, I must confess a lack of familiarity with Vietnamese food. Thus, my judgement may be clouded by this inexperience. The won ton soup advertised as a so-called appetizer was served at the same time as the two entrees. Approximately six won ton were served in a clear and tasty broth. For $7.95, the soup was large enough to serve... More

Me and my wife went over on a Sunday to order food to-go. The place is clean. We ordered "Combination Fried Rice". Fried rice should have vegetables and pork already. This is the first time we see those ingredients as a" combination". We also ordered wings. The were six, but not the wings in the picture. (whole wings) just "drumsticks".... More

Traveling to Montreal, we stopped for the night in Watertown, NY. We consulted Trip Advisor about where to eat and Lotus Garden was recommended. We tried the spring rolls which were very good. My husband and son had the pork and shrimp noodle soup and they loved it. I had the vermicelli entree with pork and an egg roll. My... More

We were cross border shopping at the discount stores in Watertown and took a chance on this nondescript looking strip mall restaurant. What a find! The place is spotless, the portions are huge and the food is excellent! The service was efficient and staff were pleasant. Try any of the Pho dishes or salads. The meat and seafood dishes are...
