Having some time between appointments, I looked for a new place to try in Farmingdale. I had passed Lotus several times and decided to give it a try. As I arrived at the address on Conklin Street, it appeared that the entrance was directly on this street. That however, is not the case. The entrance is “around back” with seven dedicated spaces for the restaurant (no handicapped spaces here), and a large municipal lot with four handicapped spaces close by. After finding a space in the lot, I walked to the entrance. Four stone steps, or a ramp lead to the single door entry, vestibule and another single door to the dining room. There is a bench in the waiting area.
Lotus has a contemporary look with wood/tile floors, ample space between tables and a full-height sushi bar. Large windows provide nice light for lunch.
As I sat down, I was pleasantly surprised to see noodles and duck sauce on the table, a nice touch. “Lotus offers Chinese and Japanese Cuisine in a contemporary and comfortable setting.” (website) It is a lovely, serene setting My server was courteous and efficient. My requests were taken care of with a smile. When my green tea is replenished without my asking, that is a success! Lunch turned out to be delicious!
The restrooms are single-occupancy, handicapped-accessible. The sink does not accommodate wheelchair access. There are no baby-changing facilities.
