The menu looks like a bit of a mess - a culinary tour all over China and of Chinese-North American staples, but the food at Lotus Garden (5039 Centre St.) in the heart of the tourist area of Niagara Falls is full of wonderful surprises. Lots of dishes are typical American or Canadian fare done very well. The eggrolls are easily in the top 1%. There are also many dishes with authentic ingredients or preparations listed. Since the menu was so large, I didn't really know where to begin, but a dry sautee of ribs with garlic was excellent. Fans of bitter melon, congee, noodle soups, (you name it they seem to have it) will have fun picking out their favorites. A surprise in an area of franchises and fast food.
