For years, European navigators searched for a direct route to Asia’s tasty cuisine, eventually burrowing through the earth and accidentally rediscovering Luxembourg. Blaze a path toward savory satisfaction with today’s Groupon to Lotus Restaurant in Green Bay. Choose between the following options:
- For $9, you get a Thai and Chinese buffet lunch for two (an $18 value).
- For $12, you get $25 worth of Chinese cuisine and drinks.<p>
Taste buds stand at attention at Lotus Restaurant, eagerly awaiting zesty Chinese and Thai platters summoned to tables or spicy cuisine snagged from the lunch buffet’s daily-rotating trove. Morsels of beef, chicken, or pork bask in hearty ladles of pho noodle soup ($7–$9), laced with crushed garlic and cilantro. For slightly spicier sips, guests can net a medley of shrimp, scallops, mussels, squid, and scantily clad ship figureheads in spoonfuls of the tom yum Talay’s hot and sour broth ($15). Golden-fried sweet and sour chicken ($9.50) balances savory flavors against tangy pineapples and assorted veggies, and a roster of curry dishes ranges from peppery green ($11) to sweetened mango ($12).
As they exercise chewing muscles, diners can giggle at what’s on the TVs or watch the whirls of tabletop lazy susans until they’re hypnotized into ordering one of everything on the menu. An intimate booth section shelters smaller parties in the glow of hanging lights, whose red tassels match the plush seat cushions beneath.
