Hi There, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate Lotus Cuisine of India. I really love that you have reusable menus, reusable dishes, many organic options, reusable cutlery, reusable napkins, many vegan options, and many vegetarian options. I also appreciate your ongoing generosity with green causes throughout Marin. Really appreciate you being conscious of your impact on the planet.
All the best, Alex
Dear Lotus Family,
Just want to say big thanks for a beautiful, much-needed dining experience on Monday. Intending to pick up a to-go meal for our family on our 30th wedding anniversary since we haven’t been dining out the last few years, our plans changed when our truck broke down about a mile north of your restaurant. After walking in the heat for a couple miles to resolve the issues my husband and I were dealing with, we decided to dine-in and are so grateful we did. Really appreciate the Lotus generous hearts and yummy cuisine I have come to know and love over the years, and though I miss the pink womb-like space of your previous location, the new place is just filled with so much soothing, nourishing Shakti that we so needed – and a beautiful affirmation for my Shakti-inspired homestead/garden project I’ve been healing and growing.
Thank you so much for all the love and care you offered us wearied travelers who left much more equipped with full bellies and bags of food to face the madness of the evening with AAA. Truly a day resonating the spirit of the lotus…
With much warmth, kindness, and gratitude,

Eating together with those we love, eating nutritious food that has been prepared with love – this can nourish our inner needs, as well as our bodies. Taking time at meals to talk to each other and enjoy the meal as a shared sacrament is rare today. We need to slow down, take time to prepare nutritious meals and rearrange our schedules so that we can be together.”
