So, although it's a rather distant place for us, we headed there with Uncle Qiu some time last week.
Lotus Vegetarian Restaurant
Location: 201 Balestier Road, #02-00 Quality Hotel
Opening Hours: Daily 11:30am to 3:00pm & 5:30pm to 10pm
We had steamboat; ordered soup base Tom Yam and Herbal.
I felt that the Tom Yam was exceptionally spicy - way too spicy for many!
We will get our own prefered ingredients and they will top up the soup for us.
As long as we finish our food, I believe the price will be $19 per pax - a pretty reasonable.
They don't offer that great variety of ingredients.
Although they do serve desserts like Ice-Cream, had a section on Salads and Tim Sum respectively too!
Youngest brother and I :)
On a side note,
If you are planning to have your meal on a weekend here, I will highly recommend you to call in advance to reserve seats unless you prefer to queue and wait for hours - which I dont think it's very nice?
I felt that they could have better service, with friendlier staff.
Yet to be honest, I doubt I will head back there anytime soon if not for free vouchers.
Yes, one thing is that I'm lazy to travel that far for food;
another, it's not that worth it given it's variety.
They do have good ambience though.
Just my personal opinion! :D
