About Us


Our Family

At Lotus Garden, our focus is on homemade recipes with the freshest ingredients to bring you quality food. We are passionate about sharing a cultural experience through our dishes, offering our take to classic entrees that stay true to the flavors of Southeast Asian cuisine. Mirroring the flavors of home, our pride is sharing our love of this comfort food with you.


Special Events and Catering

Our restaurant is available for catering events: weddings, business lunches/ dinners, private sushi classes, birthdays, and more. We would love to discuss how to be a part of your next event.
