So excited to bring the family here again for Chinese New Years this coming year. I have lived in the next town (Miller Place) for years and never knew that they offered a Huge Dragon Dance Performance during the week of Chinese New year. There were drums and large colorful long dragons with acrobats animating them from beneath. It was so much fun for the whole family. Chinese New Year is a bit of a moving target.... I googled it for 2011 and it seems to land on Feb.3rd but I think the restaurant celebrate it on the following weekend. Probably best to call and confirm as well as reserve your table.

Visited Lotus East with my wife last week. Good overall atmosphere and friendly service, but the real surprise was the food. Some of the best shrimp in lobster sauce I have ever had. My wife tried a chicken and broccoli dish that also was extremely flavorful.

All in all a really good experience for only $12 per person after tax.

My family loves coming here once a week for over 15 years. There is a very good variety on the menu, but my favorite is the peking pork chops or sesame chicken.

Very tasty food and a good cheap casual dining place for the family. Atmosphere is very comfortable and the service is always very friendly.

Highly recommend this place.

Lotus East in St. James has always been one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in Long Island. The food seems quite authentic, and I tend to enjoy the relaxed and softer atmosphere. They have some great mixed drinks for very decent prices and the chicken and noodle dishes are especially flavorful.

This place is excellent. I really can't imagine what the person below me is talking about? Lethal -- how? I have lived in manhattan for years and still stop by here when I visit family.

Update: I went back to Lotus East over the holidays and there must have been a change in management. The waiter was insanely rude to people to every person in the restaurant -- he was mocking some woman at a table near us for her dietary restrictions (insanity). And the food was not nearly as good. What a shame. I won't make the mistake of going back

This place is filthy. The food is low quality. The service is frightening. The owner is a careless slob. DO NOT EAT HERE! You will be making a big mistake.

Lotus East in Saint James (Smithtown), is rated as one of the best eat-in Chinese restaurants in Long Island. The atmosphere was okay, decor could have been cleaner. The food was average and overpriced, just about the same quality as any take-out place. The Lotus East Chicken Dish was however, very delicious.

PROS:
CONS: Overpriced, Not high quality food
