Golden Lotus - Edit

This place was busy for lunch. Had shredded tofu in rice paper rolls. Mains stir fried mixed veggies with cashews and brown rice. Drink of coconut juice. Bill $26:00 service and food was good. Got the Happy Cow sticker.
Revisited today 14th April. We had summer rolls $6,80. Satay tofu with veggies $16,80, rice noodles with
stir fry veggies and fresh apple juice $5,80. The meals were well prepared crunchy veggies and was swimming in a bit too much sauce.

Pros: 100% vegan, Food veggies were fresh and nice, Staff helpful

Cons: have to book ahead.

The pho and the mixed starter plate were both very delicious! Had to wait in line a bit but it was totally worth it!

Delicious! - Edit

Me and my boyfriend ate here our first night in Sydney as I’d heard really good things. We weren’t disappointed!
We shared 2 starters of duck pancakes and satay skewers which were both delicious. We also both ordered the combination laksa...wow, what a huge portion! We very rarely order starters so we couldn’t finish it all. It was incredibly tasty and loaded with vegetables and mock meat. We ended up having to take home a portion which we had the next day for breakfast!
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever had a bigger portion of food given to me in a restaurant!

Phôking amazing - Edit

If I could give more than 5 stars I would. My friend and I visit here regularly and love it! Cheap & delicious food! The phô and laksa are definitely our favourites! Everything else looks delicious too, we can just never tear ourselves away from our usual choices! It gets very busy so either book or turn up early.

Hell yes vegan pho - Edit

I love pho, and this place (alongside Vina’s just down the road) does some of the best vegan pho I’ve ever eaten. Highly recommend trying it. The Thom Yum soup is also excellent.

mmmm...mmm....vegan pho! - Edit

My carnivorous friend and I came here on a busy Saturday morning and the place was packed and rushed but the food delicious. They have definitely nailed the vegan pho...the bowl was massive but it was too delicious not to finish! I didn't need to eat for the rest of the day! Even the carnivore finished her large plate of food. Rice paper rolls were fresh and tasty as a starter that was served quickly to curb our hunger. A rapid turnover of tables made us feel a little pressured to eat quickly but otherwise a great vegan experience worth sampling many times over.

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.
