Dined at Lotus last night. Had a terrific night. Food was absolutely delish, I've been thinking about it all day. Owner and all staff encountered very friendly and great service. Can't wait to come back.

Our family, 5 adults and two kids, visited in December this Malaysian Chinese restaurant in Port Macquarie for the second time. Our last visit was two years ago and we really liked their signature dish " Pork Spare Ribs' and visited again to taste the same. Although the quality and taste of the Spare Ribs was not same this time we still liked that. The restaurant is on the first floor of an old building at Lighthouse Beach Shopping Village with plenty of parking and hardly see that from outside. However they have set it up beautifully inside and the atmosphere was great. The restaurant was full when we went there at about 7.30 pm and they have a great menu that suits everybody. A good wine list also although found to be bit expensive. Unfortunately no BYO is allowed. The food was delicious and we enjoyed our dinner. Will definitely go there again when we visit Port Macquarie next time.

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.
