Better then anywhere else in CR

For the Cedar Rapids area there really are no good Chinese places. Tings is the best out of all the options. The egg rolls only come in beef but are very crispy and fresh. The meat is good quality and not covered in batter.

Typical American Chinese. About like Panda Express buts little more expensive. Quick service which is why it feels like a sit down buffet.

My wife had sesame chicken with fried rice, I had general tso chicken. My cousin had hot braised chicken. All were quite delicious. This is one of the best chinese restaurants around. The dinner pricing is a little bit pricey but you get ample serving sizes. The lunch specials are a wonderful value!

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

Working in the area temporarily. A local recommended Red Lantern. We had Po Po Platter, Garlic Beef and a Beef and Vegie entrée. It was good, The service was very good. We brought home enough leftovers for snack later that night. Would go there again.

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!
