Lotus House Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

Lotus House Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

The Lotus House booth is in the China pavilion, meaning this is typically a busy area thanks to Frozen Ever After being right next door.

The line can grow here, so plan accordingly.

We aren’t usually fans of this booth at any festival, especially thanks to the drinks being bad and way overpriced. Unfortunately, we still aren’t fans of the food and most of the drinks.

All food and drinks from the Lotus House 2024

We do recommend Mango Bubble Milk Tea as a non-alcoholic beverage. The presentation is nice and you get a lot for your money.

It’s also important to note that there is finally a vegan option at Lotus House — the Pan-fried Vegetable Dumplings. They aren’t labeled as plant-based, but they are.

While they’re not the most amazing dumplings we’ve ever had, it’s great to see another choice for vegans and vegetarians at the festival.

Be sure to check our 2024 Lotus House must-tries, photos, full reviews, and ratings below.

When it comes to our reviews and ratings, we thought it would be helpful if you had a better understanding of our personal preferences (what we like and don’t like), along with if there are any dietary restrictions.

Here’s a breakdown of not only who is doing the reviews, but a little more information about what each of us likes and doesn’t like food and drink-wise.

Shannon (Founder)

  • Likes: Almost everything
  • Dislikes: Beers that taste “stinky,” anything too salty
  • Dietary Restrictions: None

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)
  • Dislikes: Things that are too spicy, anything with a bone still in it, cocktails with too much whiskey or tequila (thanks to having too much fun in college), some red wines, most IPAs

  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 1.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Strange texture, has a bit of a kick.
Heather: So fatty. How? It’s chicken. But the texture is not good.
Felicia: The chicken is mushy which is weird. The flavor is okay, not great. Strong peanut flavor and it’s rather salty. I wouldn’t recommend this.

These are house-made crispy wontons filled with a cheesy crab mixture.

Crab Wontons Lotus House

  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Wanted to love these but the sauce made it soggy and the filling lacked flavor.
Felicia: These are good but nothing special. Standard crab wontons with a sweet and spicy sauce. Fine but not worth stopping.

Pan-fried Vegetable Dumplings

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Man. Sickening sweet. No no.
Heather: Keep this in mind: this is the last booth so I’ve had some really tasty drinks. This just feels cheap.
Felicia: Best drink I’ve had at a China booth. It’s still too sweet for my liking but the liquor doesn’t assault your mouth and the tropical flavors are fun.
