The Lotus Heart restaurant is a truly amazing venue. A visit to this place is one that cannot be missed. The food is exquisite, comprehensive & with a menu that is constantly evolving, the staff go to enormous lengths to ensure you feel welcomed and...your dining experience is tailor made, and there is such a beautiful atmosphere and ambience. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It is the true gem of Christchurch.More

No masks (all staff wearing forged exemptions), no staff vaccinated, no vaccine passport requirements followed or QR scans = $20,000 fine and closure. Selfish proprietor.

Best restaurant in Christchurch, nicest staff and most delightful and delicious food always, such a fantastic variety and the specials menu is changed often so always something different to try. Highly recommend.

It is such a pleasure to enter the beautiful space this restaurant presents, & such a relief to be in an atmosphere that does not discriminate. I feel 'normal', I feel served & honoured by the quality of the food & drinks provided along with...the loving attitude of the staff. Highly recommended :-)More

Don't wear masks. All staff wearing exemptions. Scamming the exemption system and putting the whole city at risk.
