They have received lots of accolades over the years, and are even ZAGAT-rated. In 2013, they completely renovated the place and are now a certified green business serving the finest organic Indian food. Sroa also strongly believes in giving back to the community. Every Thanksgiving, they serve free dinners to anyone who shows up. Last year they served more than 1,000 dinners. “This is very good for your karma,” Sroa says. It’s a tradition he learned from his parents.”

Where’s the Beef?

Written by jacqui. Posted in News

Vegetarian restaurant in Fairfax, Cafe LotusOur vegetarian meals are truly so tasty you might not even noticed it, but Lotus does not serve any beef dishes. It’s true, in India cows are considered sacred animals, a tradition that comes from striving to live in harmony with the land. We at Lotus also have this reverence for cows, and so we don’t serve beef. Non-vegetarians will still find meat dishes atLotus. We serve chicken (ask for our organic chicken!) and lamb dishes as well as seafood selections with fish and prawns.

Urgent Advice about Food Allergies

Written by jacqui. Posted in News

Food Allergies

The number of Americans affected by food allergies is getting higher every year. Here at Lotus our staff has been made allergy aware. We know that food allergies can be a potentially serious medical condition. We believe that everyone should have a wonderful dining experience with us, so we are doing what we can to accommodate all guests with food allergies and dietary restrictions.

The eight most common food allergens are peanuts, tree nuts, milk, egg, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish.

Food intolerances are not life-threatening. The most common intolerances are towards lactose, wheat and gluten products, sugar, and corn products. Celiac disease is considered a food intolerance although technically it is an autoimmune disorder caused by gluten.

Lotus uses milk, egg, wheat, soy, fish and shellfish as well as cashews, almonds and raisins in our meals. We do NOT use peanuts or peanut oil.

If you have any food allergies or dietary restrictions please let us know! Tell your waiter when you order your food or include a comment with your online order.
