We really enjoyed dinner, it was great place. The staff was excellent and very attentive. Food was as you’d expect, very good. The gyoza was definitely the highlight. I had a spare rib special that was ok. The tempura fried ice cream was outstanding, somehow warm on the outside yet ice cream was still dead frozen inside. Everyone else at the table had sushi, they loved everything. The drinks were great. Will be going back to try more.

Love this place! We did take out during the shut down, and were glad to come in person, nicely socially distanced. The special Lobster sushi roll was outstanding!

We loved the Nia dumplings but we found the seaweed in the other foods (miso soup and rolls) to be too chewy for our liking.

We had the best night! We were able to sit outside with a heater to eat our delicious dinner. The apps, sushi & dessert were excellent. The sushi was fresh with a beautiful presentation. Our service was outstanding. The owner & wait staff went above & beyond to make sure our meal was enjoyable. Our server was friendly, funny, & knowledgeable & her sushi roll recommendation was our favorite out of the 5 we ordered. This was our first time & we will definitely be back!

Came here for dinner and me and my sister ordered sushi. The sushi was so fresh and our meal was great-especially the Huntington Roll!! We were attended to by several servers and the prices are typical for sushi. Definitely recommend going here especially for the sushi!

Everything was fresh and delicious! Greeted by the chef who also came around to check on us. Food came out piping hot which I find many restaurants do not do. Diverse menu and specials which we tried and deemed very authentic! Looking forward to our next visit.

We had a party of ten and everyone loved their food. All of the orders were correct and no-one sat around waiting for their food, which is great with a large party. The waiter was professional, courteous, and helpful; he was even able to split out certain meals so some could pay with credit card instead of cash. If we lived closer, this would be our go-to place. However, next time I'm in the area, we'll definitely be back!

This place is amazing! I just celebrated my birthday here. We had a pretty large party of 17 people. I booked the reservation a week in advance through open table, which was extremely easy. The area which we were seated was awesome. Plenty of space, comfortable. The atmosphere is cozy and attractive. A hidden gem. The owners and staff were extremely friendly and attentive. The food was amazing. I ordered the red lotus roll...sooo good. My family and I had an exceptional experience and we’ll definitely be back again and again. Highly recommend!! Thank you red lotus for awesome time and hospitality!!

We choose to spend our New Year’s Eve at our favorite Asian restaurant. The staff at The Red Lotus always welcomes us with big smiles and great service. The food is out of this world. We were one of the last few people they served on this very busy night and the quality of service and food were as though they were catering just to us. The Red Lotus is a must visit when your in the Shelton area! Next time you pop in say hello to the owners Larry and Nia they are always ready to make new friends.

You will be hard pressed to find a better experience than sitting at the sushi bar and chatting with Chef Jason. This guy absolutely loves his job and it shows in everything he does, from the way he sources his fish, to the way he prepares and serves it to you. And it always comes with great conversation. Highly recommended. He has a following that follows him around and it is easy to see why.
