My new favorite neighborhood sushi restaurant! Lotus Bistro was super easy, fairly priced, and the food was by far some of the best sushi I’ve had in a while! They were super nice, brought our food to our car, and even gave us bonus chopsticks that I can’t wait to use again! I will definitely be ordering from Lotus Bistro again real soon!

Just another honest review for Lotus Bistro! The food was superior to many of the restaurants I have tried with similar menus in Aventura, Florida as-well-as Atlanta, Ga! My waitress was Pie and she had a great sense of humor! During the meal the owner, Betty Sun made her self know and it was obvious why the experience and food preparation was superior! She was pleasant and a beauty women inside and out! If you are in the area you have to give Lotus Bistro a try! If you are looking to cater a party or just want to take a drive across town its a great Sushi Restaurant to try with a friend, love one or colleague!

A new “must try” gem in Lakeview. The food was phenomenal with flavor that continually surprises and impresses with each roll. We tried several signature rolls with a blend of starters and loved them all! Service and staff also deserve many props. Great new restaurant!

What a great addition to the neighborhood. I've had the dragon roll, brussel sprouts, edamame and my favorite, agedashi tofu. Everything had a nice spice to it without being overwhelming. Even those that claimed to hate tofu at the table couldn't get enough of the agedashi. The employees, from the servers to the chefs to the owner, really want you to have an enjoyable experience and delicious food which creates a very welcoming vibe.
