Just read on wvva.com that the health inspector revoked their permit due to R dozen critical violations. This has happened to this place before in the past. Will they ever learn?

I know my husband and I quit eating chinese food because of that I dont know about all foreigners but I know the vietnamese eat small animals, maybe not in this country but in their own they do. We watched a show on it they go to the market and pick out live puppies and kitties to eat! It blew my mind I just couldnt believe it, but we see them as pets and they see them as a delacy.
But I still cant imagine what in the world these people were doing with the chicken feet that would have to taste like pure grissel in food yuck yuck yuck I'm grossing myself out now! lol!

Lotus Garden is just as clean or cleaner than the next place to eat. One thing to think about is at least people working there didn't just shoot up or crush a pill in the bathroom, then go back to serving or preparing food like other places. I will take unmarked deer meat in a freezer any day over Hepatitis C, AIDS, etc.

You must either own the place or work there, to be defending them like that. They are the cleanest place around, that damn health dept just closes places down for the hell of it right? Yeah right whatever, they nasty and you know it. And on the deermeat if I want deermeat I'll go out and kill it myself dont need to buy it at a restaurant.
And whats your excuse for the chicken feet and feathers because noone is buying that it was for personal use....

Not the owner or a worker, just a long time customer. You think it is ok to transmit diseases from drug use? That is what you find in the majority of places around here. I have never got sick or found anything that would cause me to stop eating there, such as a cockroach. I can say that one Chinese restaurant in Princeton caused me to stop going there. This was only after visiting less than five times. Obviously the infestation was pretty bad to see them out in day light. Guess this one got skipped.

They have the worst chinese food around. I swear people that think that it taste good need to have their heads checked or they are from the sticks and never had good Asian food. I ate there two times and it was years apart and I hated it both times. Strange that I heard a person say years ago that the health inspector found a dead deer in their kitchen years ago and now I hear officially that they have deer meat in their freezers. What is gross is that it is probably road kill because last time I checked Asian people do not really go deer hunting.

They probably grind up those chicken feet as fillers for their generals chicken.

Last time I checked most places only had 1-2 critical and not 3 dozen critical violations. You better start cooking at home if that is the only place you dine at.

Mall management is kicking them out according to Bluefield Daily:

In a statement released today, the Mercer Mall management said upon confirmation of the health department’s inspection,“it was the decision of Mercer Mall Management to immediately end our relationship with the owners of Lotus Garden and insist the restaurant close permanently.”
yuck

This place is gross and it has been needing to be closed for a long time. My friend and I ate there for the last time eight years ago, when we saw one of the workers pushing a crate full of questionable animal skeltons to the dumpsters outside of their back door beside of the mall entrance. WVVA states that there is a sign up stating that they were closed due to "water problems". Another restaurant that closes frequently for "water problems" and "remodeling" is the Peking House in Princeton...It's sad, but the truth is that we never know what we are eating when we choose to eat away from home...

I prefer the Full Key Chinese Restaurant located on H St. in China Town, Washington D.C. It's good and authentic. Most Chinese places Americanize the food to make it appeal to the people in this country.

That is the truth, any place that serves things deep fried has undergone the American treatment. Authentic food from most countries would gross most of us Americans out. Then again it is 1000x times healthier usually.

You must be one of the dumbest people on topix! To anwser your question, of course not I dont think its ok to transmit diseases from drug use,but you cant run from it anymore drug users are everywhere they work in your fast food joints, hospitals,even some of them work as EMT's and have to give you mouth to mouth the realization of drugs and the disease from it is horrific but it is everywhere even in your precious chinese restaraunt!
And if you wouldnt stop eating there after them haveing how many violations? not once but twice or maybe even more this is the second time I know of they had to be shut down so if you enjoy the nastiness honey go for it eat your deer meat and chicken feet until you throw your guts up but dont try to rationalize that this place is as clean as any other generally most places will have 5 or less violations and usually a couple of those will be lil BS nit picky things not feathers, chicken feet, and deer meat! lmao!!!

Your exactly right on all of this. And especially about the part of Asian people deer hunting I go hunting alot and I have never seen a bunch of lil Asian people in the woods! lol
They probably just scraped it up off the road on the way to work along with a possum, river rat, and whatever else was laying there dead! lmao!
I have always joked that they served lil kitty cats because you never see any strays in the general area but I never dreamed it was roadkill!
