Met up with friends for a well deserved child free grown up evening out. The food tasted fantastic,but they slapped a 10% service charge on the bill...not impressed. The seats were a bit uncomfotable, so take a cushion if you're planning on being there a while. The loos were disappointing too.

Had lunch with my wife, portions were a little small but quite tasty and well presented, perfect if you were having a big dinner later in the day.
I never went home hungry, prices were reasonable and staff friendly.
Will return and might try the tapas next time!!

Had their lunch-time two-course offer and it was awful. Watery prawn soup contained no prawns - we queried this and were told the chef forgot to put them in - all two of them! Salads were likewise small and meanly made. Total rip-off. Go to Flat White.

Went into restaurant on a very busy Saturday night without a reservation. A very efficient and friendly lady sorted us out a table and made sure we were having a good time . Food was delicious and we had a good choice of wines and cocktails! A little on the pricey side but worth it .

My partner and I went to the Lotus Lounge on Friday afternoon (30th May) Weare not from Durham and had never seen or heard of this restaurant. We were seated by a very nice efficient lady who seemed to be in charge, She recomended the mixed Thia tapas with a side dish of wonderful tasty rice, it was the perfect light lunch. The food and atmosphere along with very efficient service means that we will certainly be back.
A slight critisism is that there was no menue at the entrance or in the window and it was only the name of the place that indicated the type of food available.
