Respond to Review of Pure Lotus - Changhongqiao

Review: The hotel concierge made a reservation and printed out a map for the cab driver, which turned out a good idea, and from where he let us out we could already see a sign with the restaurant's name. A guy with a lantern greeted us and led the way to an amazing flower-decorated temple style-place with a big Buddha, chandeliers with real candles and all other kinds of beautiful decoration. We had expected some kind of well-lit cafeteria-like place as so often in china, and were stunned and speechless for a moment. The friendly and attentive staff looked like monks with blond or pink hair :) The menu has unfortunately no pictures or useful descriptions of what to expect, but our waiter spoke English and could explain. I have to say the prices left us speechless for a moment too, this place should really be in the $$$ category - we spent about 45-70$ each and we are skinny girls - so bring a little more cash. We were informed that you can pay by credit card but will need the pin. Our food choice was steamed rice with herbs, fried noodles and fried tofu, all of which we liked very much. The portions aren't very big, but I think the ingredients were special, we actually felt really good for hours! There's no alcohol by the way. When we left, we were given a lotus flower each that is decorating my hotel room now :)
