Lotus Grill & Noodles cuisine style is French-Vietnamese style, specializing in Beef Noodle Soup or "Phở", grilled rice dishes and grilled vermicelli bowls and many more. With a full menu from appetizers to lunch and dinner, you'll find something for everyone of all ages. You can choose from appetizers such as Crispy Spring rolls, Summer rolls, Calamari, Viet Chicken Wings etc. We do carry Viet sandwiches ("bánh mì"), especially grilled chicken/beef/shrimp "bánh mì" - you could not find many places in town to offer this! People love our weekday lunch specials since you'll get a reasonable price of an excellent lunch package to fill you up with delicious and healthy foods w/drinks. This is our quick and convenient way for office workers to enjoy their good lunches in less time. You should try our special Spicy Beef Noodle Soup (or "Bún Bò Huế") with a saté sauce. It is our customer's favorite for its hot spicy beef broth.

"In the busy Shirlington area, Lotus is a quiet retreat. The food was excellent and plentiful Vietnamese classics. Especially great were the spring rolls and chicken wings as appetizers. The mixed kebab grill with rice paper wraps (you put you meal together in the manner of Chinese Peking duck wraps) was terrific! It could easily serve two people."

"The food was outstanding with a definite southern flair. There were a lot of nice touches and wonderful combinations of mains with sides. Our waitress was terrific. It was our first time here and I thought the restaurant might match the ambiance of the hotel itself - upscale and interesting. The restaurant decor was bland at best and over the top in the noise category with both bar and piped in music that we had to shout over. I'd go again for the food - or maybe just get it as carry out!!"
