They have closed their doors and now are food truck and catering only, per their website. :( (Rating is only bc I had to rate it as something. The food truck might be great; the restaurant I closed unfortunately.)
So happy do find a completely gluten free restaurant, and right by Costco to boot. We got a mild Thai yellow curry which was fantastic and flavorful- lots of fun spice, and great with rice. We will be back!
The menu was wide and varied - it was hard to decide what to eat! The service is quick and friendly too.
This restaurant was amazing. Everything is gluten free and organic and there are also a lot of vegan options. There are many unique Asian flavor combinations. Also, great gelato and gluten free pie to finish off the meal. I hope to get back to this place again!
Excellent fresh food with both familiar and new dishes. We will be back as there is more on the menu we want to try. The entire menu is GF so lots of options
Amazing...100% GF with a huge menu of different types of Asian food. Must try the tom kha coconut soup! Heads up, they're closed Sundays.
Amazing!!! Everything we tried was delicious. Surprised the dining room was quiet as the food was absolutely fantastic!
My favorite gluten free restaurant here on Hawaii Island! Everything fresh and made to order so the spiciness level can be adjusted to your preference. Lots of great Thai, Indian and Indonesian options to choose from. Awesome green curry and yummy thai iced tea. Dedicated Gluten Free Restaurant. Lotus Cafe is located in the Koloko Light Industrial Area near Costco but it is totally worth the trip! They also have a lunch truck that you will find out and about, especially at the South Kona Green Market on Sunday's.
Food is FABULOUS and Celiac Safe because it's a dedicated GF facility. Nice to finally have the 'problem' of deciding what to order - so many wonderful choices! Green Papaya Salad, Cucumber Salad, Mango Tango, 11 Curry Chicken, and Ginger Lemonade were all incredibly flavorful and fresh. Cute Asian decor, very comfortable. Would eat here every day if I lived here.
This place is great. Our favorite restaurant on the Big Island. It's really near the airport, so great for food if you're flying to/from Kona (and at all other times). Diverse Thai food. Super fresh ingredients, and some interesting dishes I have never seen on a Thai menu in Seattle. My kid and I loved their fried apple bananas with palm sugar on so much that I learned to make them immediately (sadly, not quite as well).
Very tasty and all GF. It is so nice to go to a place and not have to worry. The food is fresh, local and much of it is organic. The Gelato and Sorbet are wonderful and dairy free! Haven't had anything we didn't like.
Amazing! Delicious! Lots of options.
I've eaten here every time I am in Kailua-Kona, and never regret going! Their food is delicious and everything on the menu is gluten-free! I particularly like their pad thai. Lotus Cafe also sells vegan gelato, but unfortunately it's not always available because the owner makes it in small batches as she has time. No gelato last time I was here!
Dedicated gf restaurant. My food was ok. My husband's food was excellent. I'm not a dan of dark meat chicken, which is all they serve there. My mango tango chicken had a sauce that tasted nothing like mangos. I'm excited to go back and try some of their desserts. I can't eat dairy, and their gelato is all vegan. They also have a chocolate pie that is gf and vegan. I'll update my review after I've tried some!
Amazing gluten free food! Made me so happy!
Yummy, vegetarian options. They do have beer with gluten but otherwise are all gf.
Great, safe food!! Great vibe. Located up in shopping center near CostCo.
The facility is completely gluten free, and the food was wonderful and affordable. It was a treat to have chicken fried rice, which is usually off limits.
Soooo happy to find this review, find this restaurant and enjoy a wonderful meal with no worries!!
Excellent! Very tasty and all gluten free.
This place is awesome!
The food was excellent. It is GF safe, dairy free, and non GMO. Huge selection. The mango tango chicken was fantastic. Highly recommend this place.
Very nice to find a place with so many choices of great GF food. Since it was so hard to choose I decided on the Daily Special which included three different menu items. You'll have to ask the server what the daily items are. It's off the beaten path just between and up the hill from Costco & Home Depot.
Excellent! Highly recommend, even for gluten eaters! I eat GF, but my husband and two friends do not, and we all loved it. The entire menu is fabulous. Very healthy and delicious. So many options, had a hard time choosing what to order! ;). It was almost too good to be true! Loved the dairy free desserts. Thank you Lotus Cafe!
This place is amazing!! I go every time I'm in Kona. Make sure to try their coco sugar organic lattes! Yummy!
Completely gluten free, lots to choose from. Place seems run down but food was great. BBQ chicken rolls were delicious and the gelato.
AMAZING!!!! The people were great and the food was even better!!!!! No gluten, no dairy, and the gelato was amazing!!!!!!! Mahalo, Maria and Colby Standley
Best ever! Fantastic flavorings, nothing heavy, vegan gelato! Terrific to have so many options. A must stop for anyone with food sensitivities.
Nice totally gluten free organic. They allowed us to bring in our gluten free beer. We would have likedit better if they had any white meat chicken options
Great service. Great food.
Their entire menu is gluten-free - with maybe an exception in their beer selection. The variety on the menu was awesome - having more than just a few options was so refreshing. They have Asian Fusion with more of a Thai flair with unique and delicious adaptations.
