Looked this place up on our local TV stations best places to eat web site, decided to give it a try, very glad we did! Food was great, waitress was very friendly and, best of all, the price. We were there for lunch and most all of their menu was less than $6, this includes soup, spring roll, and crab... More

Have been here on two occasions. The food was average at best, much better at other local Chinese restaurants. The service in my opinion was pretty poor. The hostess who seated us seemed like she didn't want to be at work and pretty much hated her job. And more funny to me but on both occasions when leaving, our waitress... More

This restaurant is a go to for lunch. Quick, reasonably priced, and very good food. The service is always very good also. The lunch comes with soup, appetizer, and a decent sized meal. I would definitely recommend!

I can only recommend two items: the crab rangoons and the wonton soup. With the exception of the fried rices dishes, all the entrees taste the same -- bland with an overwhelming sweetness. The staff aren't very friendly and attentive.

We were lazy, grabbing "Chinese" at the grocery store on busy nights. We tried Ting's on a lark, and we'll never get grocery carry out again. Well priced, incredibly fast and a huge menu of choices...Ting's is fantastic!

My husband and I had lunch at Ting's Red Lantern and we both liked. It wasn't outstanding, but food tastes good and our waitress was very nice, taking time to help me choose my dish. My Husband had chicken with veggies and I chose fried rice with beef. Portions for lunch time were generous. In my opinion, after trying other... More

This is one place you can go and get excellent food and great service every time. Love the lunch menu, and trying new dishes here. Have found spicy dishes to be mild to moderate vs. really spicy. Interior is starting to get a little tacky looking and could use some attention pretty soon.

Great family restaurant and mainstay in northeast CR. Tons of dishes to choose from. Really, really good potstickers. Quality ingredients - meat isn't fatty or tough. My favorite is the spicy pork and green bean dish. My go to for take-out!

We go here about 2 times/month. They know us here and treat us like family. My daughter once left her kiddie chopsticks there and they washed them and saved them for her to give her the next time we came in. Such nice people. Have not had a bad dish here. We usually get hot and sour soup, crab rangoons... More
