Respond to Review of Mandarin Lotus
Review: I was visiting friends for a long weekend and on the last night of my visit I asked them to let me take them to someplace special to thank them for their hospitality. They suggested we go to Mandarin Lotus and told me that I was going to love the place. They were right! They have an extensive and creative menu, very original recipes, not just vegan versions of typical Chinese meat dishes. They does some very creative things with tofu. One of my favorites was the Black Velvet Belgian Chocolate Agave Tofu, it was amazing. The mock fish dishes are also very, very good. They offer an impressive selection of teas as well. The service was warm, friendly and vet attentive, the owners knew my friends by name and welcomed many of their customers like regulars. I will make a point of driving up from LA the next time I'm in town with a little extra time on my schedule.
