Respond to Review of Lotos Cafe
Review: This restaurant was nearly impossible to find. It sits in a small building in the midst of high rise apartment buildings, so street names and numbers are not of much help here. We biked around forever, and eventually had to call them to get a better description of where they might be. So it wasn't really surprising that when we got there, the place was quite empty. It was also very quiet. I found this to be a welcome respite from the activity of Mitte, but my partner found it awkward. However, the restaurant is part of a meditation center, so the remote location and quiet atmosphere make sense to me. The menu is only a couple of dishes, but I enjoyed all the food extremely. The pumpkin soup and the entree (salad, side, and protein on a plate) were both well balanced, healthy, and delicious. The portions are very generous - you can easily have the soup as your dinner. The tea was also very nice. Not everything on the menu is vegan, and the employees seemed to be confused on what contained dairy. That just seems funny when you have only 3 dishes. Nevertheless, I think the service was very nice and friendly. Actually, I felt bad for the man and young girl who served the food, because I saw the woman who cooks the food yelling at them in front of us. It might be a family thing, but this seemed a bit out of place in a meditation center. Since I already know where it is, I would come here again for a healthy dinner if I was near Alexanderplatz.
