The best laaksa I've ever had - Edit

If you come here I recommend the laaksa, it was delicious! We tried a few other dishes which were tasty as well, but nothing beat the laaksa. The place is very busy so it's best to make reservations.

Pros: All vegan, Best laaksa ever, Many options

Cons: A little crowded at times

big menu, but very oily food - Edit

I got the lotus salad which was like a fried salad. There were some non-fried components but even the pickles (or perhaps marinated cucumbers) seemed cooked.

Amazing food - Edit

The service was super fast and we were eating our appetizers within 10 mins of ordering. They were probably the most delectable things we have eaten all month. The stir fry tofu mains were also wonderful. Nothing was really spicy so if you are after a hot dish make sure to request extra spice.

Pros: Fast service, not too expensive

Popular Vietnamese with a great menu - Edit

I went with two others to Golden Lotus. They now have 2 restaurants side by side as the first one was so popular and they needed more space.
The service was quick and friendly and the meals were a good size, tasty and reasonably priced.
We had 3 starters, 3 mains and rice for under $75.

Pros: Quick service, Cool atmosphere, Good sized meals

heaven on earth - Edit

Golden lotus is my favourite place, not only in sydney but in the world. I've travelled the world multiple times to many many cities and never ever had food so good.
The faux meats are amazingly tasty and every dish is so full of flavour. Authentic Vietnamese quinine replicated so well in vegan form is not easy to find. Food is always so fresh and crisp too.
Tracy and David are the owners and they're some of the kindest people I've met. Always going out of their way to ensure everything is perfect and to date, as far as I'm aware, David is in the kitchen every day to oversee and make sure everything is to their high standard. The portions are so generous - they really are huuuggeee and especially good value for money. Especially for the quality.
The yellow noodle stir fry is my favourite as well as the calamari for a starter (NOTE: I never liked calamari as an Omni). Tracy, as well as many of the other staff, always remember what I like to order and if I'm ever not sure they've always got a great suggestion and I've never been disappointed. If you haven't been here YOU MUST GO! No question. Give it a try. It's great Vietnamese food with no yucky chemical sickly feeling afterward.

veganvirtues 07 Jul 2017 - If you visit Hanoi suggest you check out Jalus, Nang Tam both in CBD. I would rate them price wise better and taste wise better. The best HUM in HCMC.

Not to everyone's taste - Edit

I loved my meal, but my wife was disappointed. We had assorted entrees which were all great. I had the 'beef' rendang which was delicious. But my wife didn't like my dish at all, or her noodle dish. She thought it was too Chinese in its flavour. So why four stars? It's my review.... ;-) It's not too cheap either, but I was happy. A lot of dishes have fake meat, but you can order without.

Pros: All vegan, and lots of options.

Cons: Not cheap.

veganvirtues 09 Nov 2017 - It's not a Loving Hut. Pay more to get quality produce. Not cheap! Try Earth to Table or Gigis.

Had the tofu with vegetables and cashews. Good serving of cashews and vegetables, although there didn't seem to be much tofu. Meal was a bit bland.

Wonderful Vietnamese in Newtown - Edit

You are greeted with a large neon sign as you enter 'Veganism is Magic' this is the sentiment for their deliciously magic food.
My favourite dish is the eggplant is clay pot, it's the most amazing eggplant I have ever eaten! I also enjoy the vermicelli noodle salad with tofu and spring rolls. It's so fresh and the sauce is really tasty. Another favourite is the satay veg. All of the satay dishes here are yum!
The only reason I didn't give this restaurant 5 * is due to the use of mock meat. I understand why they use it however it means I can't try many dishes as I don't enjoy it.

Pros: Tasty & Unique dishes, Eggplant in Clay Pot!, Large menu

Cons: Mock meat

So Good ! - Edit

Absolutely loved The Golden Lotus!
Went there for the first time last night and I will definitely be going back.
There were so many options that I struggled to pick one things?I also loved that everything in the menu was reasonably price nothing seemed too expensive.
I will be coming back to this place quite regularly now to try everything else on the menu ?☀️??

Must try to pho and the desserts! - Edit

The vegan pho is great, and so are stirfrys. The portions here can be quite large! So a few entrees and sharing one main would be enough for two people (plus a dessert!).

Pros: Friendly staff, Lots of menu choice, Vegan pho!!

Cons: Can get busy / crowded

Yum!! - Edit

This place has the best food! I especially love the vegan "fish" clay pot and the satay "chicken" skewers. Getting noticed by wait staff can be a little tricky but that's because they're always so packed, so I don't blame them. Good well priced tasty vegan food :)

Pros: Tasty, Good portions, Quality meals

Cons: Busy, Can wait a little while for your food
