SquareMeal Review of
The Lotus Chinese Floating Restaurant
London’s worldly-wise diners may have seen it all, but even the most jaded of customers would need a heart of stone not to be at least a little bit excited about dining aboard a flamboyant Chinese
boat in the middle of futuristic Docklands. The regular menu is less out of the ordinary, but there’s a wide choice of dim sum seafood dishes including the fabulously hyperbolic ‘gargantuan
prawns’. If you’re ‘feeling brave’ (their words), staff will happily guide you through some ‘weird & wonderful’ specialities from the separate Chinese menu: brace yourself for plates of sea
slug, fish lips & duck’s feet hotpot. There’s a function room on the top deck, with the bonus of firework displays, dragon-boat racing & lion dances by arrangement.
