It was a good chinese

The service was pretty good, it was fast and reliable. The food was of a good standard, we had a set menu. The aromatic duck was a little dry, but the prawns we had at the end we're very nice, packed full of flavor. The staff were really nice, we had our little niece with us who can sometimes be... read more

As a party of eight we had an excellent meal at the Red Lantern. The mixed selection of starters was delightful and the main meal dishes were extremely tasty and good value. The service was attentive and could not be faulted. An excellent meal all round on Chinese New Year Weekend. This was our third visit to this restaurant in... More

Not an awful lot I can say about here except for the quick turnaround of the food when the order was eventually taken. We visited on a Saturday evening. There was a a good few members of staff who all seemed to be standing around. It took 25 minutes for us to place an order even though several staff walked... More

Six family members met here from many miles away for my sons birthday. If you can please all of your family all of the time and all at one meal you have really achieved the impossible. It really was a great time enjoyed by all ages from a 10 year old to a 75 year old. All had different starters,... More

Went here for a family birthday. The food was nice and was great value for the all you can eat offer. Service was also good. A small place but well run. My only gripe would be that the food was too much like takeaway food. I could've just ate the same at home.

We're never disappointed when we eat here or get a takeaway from here. The staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. Returned (yet again) on Friday night with friends and had the buffet which we always recommend to anyone and everyone and now my friends know why. The food is always delicious and so flavoursome so we will continue telling everyone... More

Opted for a take out this time. Great service. Food packed in a box so really easy to manage an order for 4 to the car. 10 min drive to friends and the food was still piping hot. Great portion sizes and the food was great. Recommend the lettuce wraps and crispy beef with chilli - but then again everything... More

Just got back from a meal with my husband and family for my brother's birthday and was served by a man (presumably the manager) from the start he was very abrupt and rude and made us feel like we were being an inconvenience, he huffed and puffed every time we asked a question and had a face that would turn...
