Enjoyed our dinner at Lotus tonight! The restaurant was quite busy on Friday night but because of the sheer size of the restaurant there were still many open tables. The dining space is really beautiful, having been renovated recently when Lotus moved to this new location. There is just so much detail from the artwork to the arched ceilings to the tableware, this is a cool spot to enjoy a meal.

The food was exceptional. Specifically, the Saag Paneer and Paneer Tikka Masala were amazing. Full of flavor highlighting the fresh ingredients used to make these dishes without being oversalted or seasoned. Portions were just right, and there was a good amount of paneer in the dish compared to other restaurants in the area.

Service was also very prompt and friendly. We always had filled water glasses and beverages and we didn't have to wait very long for our food either, despite the restaurant being busy. Great spot!
