Sometimes you find the best food in restaurants that look too scary to eat in. If you don't know what I am talking about -- I mean the little hole in the wall joints that serve up some delicious eats. Well, I am here to tell you that this is NOT the case with Lotus Inn.
I was working in Kamloops for a week and a co-worker of mine said we had to check out Lotus Inn. He raved that they had an awesome Chinese dinner buffet and that it is a must for him every time he visits Kamloops. Not being one to turn down new restaurant; especially, one that comes highly recommended from a co-worker, I thought - hey, lets give it a go.
As we walked into the place I started becoming regretful of my decision to allow myself to be swayed into a Chinese buffet (yet again). This place was quite large, but almost all of the tables were empty (bad sign). Secondly, the Lotus is so, outdated. It looks like a bad restaurant in an even worse hotel. However, I overcame my natural reaction to run out the door screaming - HELP, HELP.
Let's get to the reason that you all are reading this - the food. I wish I could say that I was taken aback by how wonderful their food was; unfortunately, their food matched their decor - Old & Tasteless. In actual fact, this has to be one of the worst Chinese buffets I have ever eaten at; probably, the worst restaurant I have ever eaten at.
If I can make one suggestion it would be this - Stay Far, Far Away.
