Serene and low-key. For the full effect, go at night when dozens of candles light your way up the flight of stairs at the entrance. Inside, Buddha images greet at every turn, while the gentle whiff of incense hangs in the air. And in honor of the eatery’s namesake, lotus flowers - a sacred symbol in both Hinduism and Buddhism - are a recurring motif, showing up embossed on the front door, embroidered on the tablecloths and painted on the silk curtains.
While the menu represents a cross-section of Asian cuisines, Wild Lotus mainly focuses on modernized Vietnamese cuisine. Order the pan-fried Nha Trang sea bass served with a salad of mango, cherry tomatoes and glass noodles as your main, but make sure you save room for the black sticky rice with custard and coconut ice cream.
