“Typical Chinese.......”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Nothing fancy. The place was packed (of course, it was a Friday night in a tourist town - lots of Asian tour bus diners). Got seated and served right away. We had a party of three. All entrees were hot and tasty. Stay away from the corn soup, though.......disgusting!

Seated quickly in a packed restaurant. Friendly waitress. Food came out quickly & was hot. Somewhat overpriced but expected in tourist town. $18.00 Combo D average taste-3 large fried shrimp, szechuan beef, pork fried rice, egg roll, corn soup. I have had better & have had worse.

“Favorite Chinese Restaurant in West Yellowstone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Our family enjoys eating at Red Lotus on a regular basis. Food and service are exceptional. We do try to go early as the place is often packed out with bus tours. Prefer lunch menu...plenty enough food and reasonable price.

“Tourist town, not big city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014 via mobile

Rated best for area and had lots of Chinese diners (tour buses) if you use that as an indication of quality. Menu with very typical Chinese dishes but each several $$ higher than we have seen in "big" cities: Austin, TX, Los Angeles, CA, San Diego, CA for example. We ordered 2 Chef's Specials: Red Lotus Beef and a "combination" Hot Pot--$19 each. Neither included rice--a large family sized bowl $3. The biggest, most outrageous expense was $10 each for a glass of unknown label of chardonnay (new liquor license and only serve Chardonnay and a Cabernet by the glass. Also have beer but I don't know what they have). Portions were of am expected size and all food was good but nothing exceptional. If we were home with other options we would not go back.

“I don't like being ripped off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

This place was packed, mostly with Chinese people so we decided to give it a go. The food was ok, the service swift and the portions fine, but when the bill came there were a number of figures at the bottom of the bill and a smiley face drawn over them which obscured what these figures were. When I finally found the waitress, she explained that a service charge had been added. I have no problem with tipping, but I have a big problem with service being added to a bill without it being made clear, presumably in the hope that you don't notice and tip again. Grrrrrrrrrr!
