Golden Lotus set to open at Fallsview Casino Resort

    New restaurant overlooking Niagara Falls to be the ultimate Chinese
    dining experience

    NIAGARA FALLS, ON, April 26 /CNW/ - At 2pm on Sunday, May 6, Fallsview
Casino Resort will officially unveil its latest amenity - the unique and very
authentic Chinese restaurant Golden Lotus.
    Built with curved glass walls that mimic the sweeping arc of the famous
Horseshoe Falls located just outside, Golden Lotus will feature a menu of more
than 180 different dishes ranging from authentic Chinese delicacies like
shark's fin and swallow nest to North American favorites like spring rolls and
wonton soup. Golden Lotus will also offer lunch and dinner buffets as well as
a special Chinese room-service menu for guests of the resort's hotel.
    The menu will cover a variety of Chinese culinary styles, including
Cantonese, Peking, Shanghai and Szechuan.
    "This restaurant is the next piece in the Fallsview puzzle as we evolve
to meet the desires of our customers," said Greg Medulun, Fallsview's Public
Relations Manager. "Golden Lotus will offer the same attention to fresh
ingredients, culinary excellence and customer service that our patrons have
come to expect from 17 Noir - our other signature restaurant - but with an
incredible Chinese flair."
