Formerly located at Martins Plaza, Aumbo Khmer has now moved to Parafield Plaza and is renamed as Lotus Blanc Restaurant. People who have enjoyed the dishes at their previous location will be delighted to know that all of them are still available here.
The egg noodles in the Pad Ped Noodles still retained a bit of bite and the chicken was cooked just right. The baby corn, bamboo shoots and capsicum complemented the chicken nicely with their firmer texture and the spiciness of the red curry sauce should be suitable for most tastes.

We were glad that the Crab Stick Fried Rice had the 'wok hei' that is an indication of a good fried rice dish. The shredded crab meat imparted a slight sweetness to the dish and the shredded carrot had a bit of firmness to it. The rice was fried sufficiently to prevent it from being too gluggy and notably had a bit of peppery taste to it.

Great for something not too filling to accompany your meal, the fried squid in the Coriander Crispy Squid was tender with a lovely crispy coating. The various vegetables cooked with the squid was done perfectly and the dish had enough coriander to give it its distinctive taste. We also liked that the texture of the sauce did not mar the crispiness of the squid.

Another of the fried rice dishes available, the Salty Fish Fried Rice had sufficient salted fish to give the dish the salty taste that you would expect. The slices of chicken breast were of a good size and spring onions added a bit of extra flavour to the dish. In addition to shredded carrots, capsicum slices and green beans were cooked with the rice for extra flavour and texture.

Customers who visit during lunchtime can order dishes from a lunch menu, which include dishes only offered during that time. Parking is not an issue as the carpark that is part of the complex offers plenty of off-street parking.
