Dined here tonight for the second time in a few weeks. Our waiter was clearly new and very overwhelmed and confused by just about everything which was kinda annoying because it just kept getting worse. We ordered the hot & sour soup, lemon chi ... more

I stopped dining here about 2 years ago when I was sick of the tiny potions barely enough to fill 2 people. Decided to try it again since it's been so long and there are so few completely vegetarian restaurants once you leave San Francisco. Wa ... more

I love the food at White Lotus. However, the portions are extremely small. I have to order 2 entrees, priced $7.95 each, for myself, in order to have a normal meal (but still on the small side). I keep going back because I love the food so much, ... more

I have been here twice and the reason I would never go back is because they seriously rip you off on the portions, but charge the same per dish. A dish that's say $6.95-$8.99 should get me what I'd get anywhere else: a full plate of food, ... more

Very nice place to eat in downtown San Jose. All vegetarian fare. Family operated. Don't go for the service, which is only fair. Or the atmosphere, which is half-hearted. But go for a sampling of the three types of rolls -- Spring, Summer and Im ... more

I third, or is that fourth, the vote for the eggplant claypot. A bit on the salty side (but I'm used to a low salt diet) but very, very tasty. The spring rolls are good, too. I also had the pickled mustard greens (I was aiming for the green beans ... more

I'm not a vegetarian, but like to eat vegetarian food, and this is a very good spot for it. I'm torn whether to get the simulated meat (for the novelty, really quite good) or the normal vegetables (better). I mean, why would a real vegetarian *want* ... more

The Spring Rolls are fine - they use a different presentation style, pre-slicing them and grouping them around the sauces on a plate. Easy to dive into. The Deluxe Stuffed Tofu with rice noodles, et al with a rich, slightly sweet tomato sauce was ... more

OK, let me begin by saying I'm not a vegetarian. But this place has plenty to keep me coming back. I second the recommendation above regarding the stuffed tomatoes and the eggplant claypot. Incredibly delicious. Service at a recent lunch was extr ... more
