Welcome to Mandarin Lotus Restaurant

Since the Mandarin Lotus Chinese Fusion Restaurant made its debut in 1988 (formerly known as Mandarin Express), it has become, quite simply, the standard by which all other Chinese cuisine is judged. Owned by Dan Chang and Kim Truong, the quaint establishment rivals even the best-known large scale, fine Asian restaurants. It's no wonder that the many celebrities, Hollywood moguls, restaurateurs, celebrity chefs, and foodies who stumble upon this gem keep coming back again and again! With the first taste of a Mandarin Lotus dish, both diners and restaurant critics alike have become and remained loyal patrons over the past three decades.

We are happy to announce that we now serve a new line of organic tea with over 60 choices, including: White Tea, Green Tea, Black Tea, Herbal Tea, Dessert Tea and many more. We are your source for the finest loose tea available, as well as tea sets and warmers.
