Visited my son over the bank holiday weekend. We decided on a take away, so popped into The Red Lantern. We were politely informed the kitchen was busy and agreed to wait. Our order arrived before the estimated time. We enjoyed what we ordered, my only comment was that the dishes needed a little more seasoning and the noodles a... More

Please do not believe the negative reviews, it is just not true. Service was great, food was very nice and reasonably priced and the décor/experience was great. This is in a great location in Chepstow and not a commercial restaurant. This is a Chinese restaurant which has made our experience in Wales one of the highlights.

I had booked a table for a Saturday evening! There were 2 of us. We arrived and were seated, we ordered some drinks, the restaurant was quite busy, the waiter came over and took our order; we ordered some starters and a main each along with some vermicelli noodles to share. Our starters arrived, I began to tuck into mine... More

10 of us from our golf group went for our festive food and drinks. We had the all you can eat friday menu and it was fantastic value. We were really well looked after by the lovely Emma, and will be making it a regular stop on our social calendar.

It started off good, nice table and a good selection on the menu, that's where it ended! After over an hour waiting for our starters, it arrived at our table stone cold. When we complained, they brought out a tea light warmer to warm it up!! At this point we decided to leave and just pay for the drinks we... More

Had booked the table a week ago for a birthday celebration (forgetting it was Chinese New Year). There were 6 of us (4 adults and 2 daughters) and when we arrived at 6.45pm we could see it was busy but by no means packed. On the plus side we were shown to our table quickly, complimentary prawn crackers were brought... More

We were looking for somewhere to eat in Chepstow, we like Chinese so tried here. Staff were friendly enough and the food was ok, nothing special but we were happy with what we had.

Have take aways from here all the time. You also get a little taster of dishes that you wouldn't think of having. Very good at making what you ask for. They do a nice lemon chicken but I wanted to try orange chicken and they made it for me. Very nice it was too.

In short, I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. Even with a confusing offer we still managed to have a pleasant meal. However, the confusion meant that there was a misunderstanding with whether we had finished. This clearly didn't please our waiter who then decided the best way to handle that situation was to out right have a go at us, along... More
