Green Lotus: Queens - FreshMeadows/Hillcrest area
This is my first post as I'm usually a chowhound lurker but I felt compelled to let others know of a great new restaurant in my neighborhood.
Green Lotus is a South East Asian fusion restaurant - it's quite small with a few tables, but it's clean, bright & cheery and has a flat screen & WiFi too. That said, there's nothing small about the amazing flavours in the food! It's very good - the chef is Thai and used to work in Manhattan, their loss & Queens gain is all I can say. We're regulars now - the food, the portions, and the prices are great. Lunch specials are packed & include soda & salad/app and are on till 4:30. They have Dinner specials as well and the entree portions are great. Our faves are the Drunken Noodles (they are not afraid of spice - yay!!) and the Panang Curry and the Malayasian Squid Salad. They do take out & delivery and the staff is very nice. Bonus is that it's a bubble tea stand as well, and the bubble tea is quite good too! It's a welcome change in this neighborhood & we hope they stick around for a long time - I definitely reccomend.
