Lotus Grill, 150 Hutchinson Ave, Columbus, OH 43235-6490, Columbus
One of my favorite go to places, and I think it's one of the most underrated places. The service is fast, and the Singapore noodle dish is just too addicting.
This is barely a step up from my school cafeteria food at a bit more of the subsidized cost (in other words, for pretty cheap).They run a good business though (although, they should probably decorate better). Service is fast and nice. They have good variety too. It’s pretty much just bang for your buck.
This was by far THE worst version of "Chinese food" I have ever had. The food and the service were extremely terrible. Oh, and they don't give refunds no matter how nasty the food is. Save your money and the trip if you want good, clean food.
Great food for a low price. The service is also very quick. The home-style tofu was the best I've ever had.
I was pleasantly surprised by Lotus Grill! There are a lot of options, including vegetarian options, and the food was extremely flavorful and not overwhelmingly sauced. I had the Szechuan tofu which was a nice healing pile of perfectly cooked tofu in a mildly spicy sauce mixed with some peppers. I also had their crab rangoons which were also great. Keep in mind this review is largely based on the cost of the food, each dish was only around $7, so even though it certainly isn’t “5 star restaurant” quality food, it’s fantastic for the price.The customer service was also excellent, I wish I got his name so I could properly recognize him but the guy working the counter was very kind and happy to serve us, which for a counter service restaurant is very refreshing!
Great place to grab a bite before or after the movies at Marcus theater. The food is very tasty and the prices are very affordable! I highly recommend this place!
value for money bur portions might be heavy so order less and decide if you wanna more later
The flavors were good tasting but meats/vegetable/noodle/rice portions were way off. We received more rice/noodles than anything else. If you would like load up on carbs this is the place for a great price.
Always great and friendly service. Food portions are great for the price!
Food is good and consistent, service is always great. The place could do for a make over as the place seems like it has stayed the same for many many years. But on that note, the prices are super cheap.
Food here is fantastic, especially those on the authentic Chinese menu. Plus, the price is very reasonable for the quality.
First time here, definitely not the last! Delicious food, and service was extremely fast! Perfect meal right before our movie. And super cheap, especially for the quantity of food!
Friendly, family run place. I always feel good after eating at Lotus. Ingredients are fresh. The wonton soup is great - delicate, handmade wontons in a light broth. The food here is delicious without relying on over-salting to enhance flavor.
Rude service, takes forever to get your food, but the food is worth it all!
Best chinese food i've ever had
ROACHES!!!!!Went here for months as it was the best chinese takeout in the area. Imagine my horror as the very first time I decided to dine in a ROACH ran past my head and into the plants on the windowsill behind the food utensils and trash cans. I can understand random insects sneaking in sometimes, especially in warmer humid climates like the south, but seeing a roach in the bitter December of Ohio really draws their hygiene into question.
Awesome chicken pad Thai and egg rolls. Friendly and quick service
The people running this place were sincere and inviting—had a great conversation. To top it off, the food was delicious and extremely affordable.
Ate it too fast to share a pic. Kids liked the sweet and sour chicken.
Very good experience. One of the few places that offer decent homemade Chinese dishes at very reasonable prices and the dishes are not oily as well. We visit there almost weekly. You may need to ask for the homemade Chinese menu, it is in both Chinese and English.
Lotus Grill is a mom and pop unassuming restaurant that has been around for 10 years or more. It has one of the best home made dishes around town. The dishes are quite tasty, as they use fresh ingredients, in generous portion, and best of all, they don't use much MSG, as I hate dishes loaded with MSG.
Great price, better service
Such affordable food and Cosmo is a cool guy! 6.50 for twiced cooked beef! Good value. Will come again.
Best egg rolls I've ever had! By far!
Service was good and fast. The food was actually really good. Great if I might say so. Served on actual plates with real forks. Nice homey seating. It's a little warm in there, but hardly noticeable when you get started. All in all, I will be doing here on the regular.
Food was outstanding and the table service good despite it being a store front that does a lot of carry out. Lots of Chinese people eating here which gave me a positive vibe when we entered. Very casual, but real plates and flatware, no foam or plastic here! Staff was friendly and accommodating. Perfect for a delicious, quick meal after a very long day at the zoo! Thank you!!
Never tried the American menu, but the Chinese menu is so good and the price is the cheapest I’ve encountered in Columbus for Chinese food. This is a great place for some fast Chinese food. Not fine dining or full service dining.
GET AN EGGROLL! It's AMAZING! I'd stay away from the General Tso's. The two times I have ordered it from here, it tasted old, I couldn't even eat it. The check out area is cluttered and disorganized which gives the look that it's a bit dirty...just straightening up that are would make you feel better about ordering food from here....I'd give it a 5 star if it just looked a little cleaner inside...the egg rolls though, they are fantastic!
I love this place! We've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Really good food and nice people. Lightning fast service! Chicken pad thai is the best.
Mom and pop shop who have mastered the art of the wok. Very fast and no joke the Best flavors of any Chinese I’ve had in columbus.
Very consistent. I've been going there for years. Mom and pop shop. Very nice couple! The son is a liability to the shop though. Always in a bad mood! I go for the tasty food, not for him!!! Total 5 star recomend !!
Have been a frequent visitor to this little Chinese eatery. They have very tasty food off the main menu but the best part is that they also have a separate Chinese menu and the fish dish from it is the best. Dont miss it :)
Food is great! Portion is big and everything is tasty. Easily one of my favorite Chinese place around Columbus. The downside is there isn't actually that much space there and bathrooms could be cleaner.
Wasted my money by going here, didn’t even eat the food. Ordered orange chicken fried rice and it was horrible looking. The meat and rice looked old and fake, nearly threw up by just looking at the food. The place looked old and dirty. Don’t waste your time and money go somewhere else trust me..
Food was good. Restaurant is really small and cramped inside. I went at lunchtime, small crowd, service was fast enough. Looked like a construction zone, I think they're in one of those long term slow remodel type of phase. I particularly liked that they had some plates on the menu you don't see too often, like eggplants. I was a bit disappointed that the hot tea wasn't endless and didn't get refilled automatically.
Delicious. Great food. Great price. Quick.
Extra star for service. Food is 2 star quality. Friend rice was weak in flavor and texture. Chicken was just okay. Personally will not be returning. Again the people were nice, food needs to step it up. Really not sure how so many people are rating this high.
It was a pretty no nonsense kind of experience. The place isn't anything fancy, but the staff was welcoming and the food was delicious and it came out fast. Not much more you could ask for.
Kind people and good food, large portions for a small price
Enjoyed both - regular and Chinese menu, even though one has to wait a bit longer for the dishes from the Chinese menu. Portions are huge and big enough for two to share. The Chinese menu food is quite unique and I didn't find it in any other Chinese restaurant. You do need a friend who could read Chinese in order to order from this menu.
Overall Lotus Grill was excellent. We ordered four different dishes and there wasn’t a single one that failed to meet our expectations. The owners are very nice but a little hard to understand. If you go, ask for the “secret” Chinese menu if you want something more authentic.
Great staff, food was good
Food was great. Services was quick. It far exceeds the quality you should get for there prices.
We ordered the orange chicken and the Sichuan chicken chow fun. They were both delicious. We will be coming back to this restaurant often.
Great food, low price, quick service. Everything comes out hot and delicious. Beyond friendly staff. I highly recommend you come check it out if you like Chinese/ Vietnamese food.
Hong Kong fried rice, the best!! Been going there since they opened. I worked on campus view and ate there at least once a week. Even though I don't work or live nearby, I still have to get my Lotus Grill fix every few weeks. I call in an order and drive about 15-20min to pickup. HKFR made spicy is my goto. Other favorites are Singapore noodles, Gen Tso, spring rolls, and lettuce wraps. The food is very good . Prices are reasonable with satisfying portions. I'm 300lbs. Their hours are great for pairing with a movie, or when its 830pm and you don't want fast-food or pizza, but still want quick, tasty, and easy on the wallet.
Best asian food I've ever had, hands down. We had the general tso and beef and broccoli. The quality was amazing, nice staff, overall a great Christmas meal.

Great dishes at great prices!
This is by far my favorite chinese food restaurant. The food is always fresh and delicious. The egg rolls are the best and I often order General Tso's chicken...also amazing. I drive out of my way just for this place.
