I’ve actually been to Golden Lotus many times for their buffet lunch, a la carte lunch, and dinner. However, I actually haven’t blogged about it. So here goes!
Golden Lotus is located at the Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls and serves Chinese food. They serve predominantly buffet lunch and dinner but they also have a la carte menu that you can order from for lunch and dinner. Lunch buffet is $17 while dinner buffet is $20. If you don’t have the PAC (Player’s Advantage Card), then it is $2 more. (The PAC card is free to obtain.)
They are located on the second floor and their theme is colour and gold. It’s a very nice restaurant to dine in and you may even get a seat near the window which will allow you to see part of the scenery of Niagara Falls. (Golden Lotus is not located directly inside the casino so kids and underage individuals are welcome to dine in here.)
During this visit, we had the lunch buffet selection which was $17 per person including tax. There was a good selection of Chinese food available for you to choose from, including cold and hot dishes, hot soups and congee, dim sum, and dessert. Compared to the Grand Buffet, the choices are more limited here but the taste quality is about the same. The food is fresh and hot and you can see the servers often refilling the buffet trays once they see that the stock is diminishing.
(I noticed that whenever they refill the buffet trays, they simply dumped the new pile of food directly on to the tray, leaving the old pile of food buried underneath the fresh food — this goes to show you that whenever you grab food from a buffet line, it’s probably best to get the ones on the top since those are the newest and freshest…)
I enjoyed my food, especially the deep fried chicken wings (these were SO good), seaweed soup, beef congee, grass jelly dessert, and red bean jello dessert.
Service here was a little spotty as some of the servers did a good job at helping you empty the table of dirty dishes while others were a little moody and unpleasant. Nevertheless, if you want some Chinese food during your visit to Niagara Falls, perhaps Golden Lotus is a good option for you! 🙂
