The meals did not come with rice or vegetables, rice was an extra $4.00 or more depending on serving size and vegetables was an extra $3 of which you only received 6 pieces of vegetables. The flavour was ok not overly strong but I believe a meal should be balanced with meat vegetables and rice.

Great place, service with a smile and laugh which is unusual I find in Australia. The menu is massive so making the decision was tricky but went with a Beef Randang and was not disappointed. Quite spicy, huge chunks of beer, plenty sauce and rice. This place is definitely worth a visit. Go now....

Tucked away in southern Port Macquarie, this upstairs restaurant is beautifully set out, and offers a range of Chinese menus, and chef Lawrence’s speciality of Malaysian Chinese dishes. The servings are generous and the wine list excellent. We loved the sweet and sour prawns, and the sizzling Mongolian lamb. Highly recommended.

The first thing you notice is the steep steps as the restaurant is on the 1st Floor. Food is of good quality (Chinese / Malaysian style) and whilst not totally authentic they go close. Good service.

Lotus at Lighthouse serves delicious dishes that are close to the authentic flavours that one would experience in Hong Kong or China. The service is fast and friendly. The restaurant is well laid out and welcoming.
