The food is excellent! I love their fresh spring rolls and their steamed sticky rice with hidden gems of vegetables inside. Portions are generous. The atmosphere quiet but very busy for lunch.

This restaurant has awesome vegetarian cuisine but the real reason I go is the creamy almond tea they have on their menu. It is absolutely out of this world! If you go leave a little more time as meals take a bit of time....more time to enjoy the almond tea!

Pros:
- all-vegan food
- cozy atmosphere
- excellent tea varieties (black, green, fruity, etc)
- large portions at a low cost (we ordered pan-fried noodles, vegetables with rice, sticky rice, and a tea for $24)

Cons:
- service is a tad slow at times
- don't accept MasterCard (only VISA)

Overall: excellent place for plenty of tasty vegan cuisine.

I amnot a fan of vegetarian food, so I went to the Lotus Tea House with some trepidation. I need not have worried. The atmosphere here is relaxed and pleasant. The food is excellent. This place deserves high marks for offering Waterloo something a little different.

The service at this restaurant is often slow which seems strange given the small size of the place. However, the staff are usually friendly and knowledgeable.

The food is very consistent and delicious. The menu is small but has a lot to offer and the kitchen does allow substitutions. The tea is excellent and I recommend trying them all! Additionally, the menu is very affordable and the portions are a good size.

The atmosphere is inviting and makes you feel like you're eating in 'grandma's kitchen' being in an old house.

I recommend for snacking or dinner with a friend/friends.
