Took our grown children here to celebrate birthdays and it was awesome. The food was fresh and not your typical fare. We ordered way too much but the leftovers were great the next day. We arrived right after they opened and by the time we were almost done eating, the place was full. It isn't particularly romantic since seating is... More

It took some time to wait for our reservation during busy season but the food surprised us a lot. All the meals that we had was really tasty. Can't expect more from Chinese restaurant.

This is good Asian fusion. Curry was top notch! I also recommend the Orange chicken. The ambiance is great and wood work at the door stunning!

The food was OK but overpriced. But those drinks that the waitress tries to get you to buy - don't do it! EEEW. We both hated our drinks and told the waitress - one was a spicy drink and the other tasted like turpentine (and we like mixed drinks) and she just shrugged and said "Oh well, sorry". And we...

I don't normally go for Chinese food, but my vegetarian traveling companion picked this restaurant. So glad she did! Somehow it seemed it wasn't just Chinese, but rather a fusion of various Asian cuisines. I really like Thai, Indian, and Japanese food. The dish I chose was Kung Pao Shrimp, a spicy dish. It was done just perfectly! Spicing, crunchiness,... More

One of the best Chinese restaurants we ever did! We chose the spicy shrimps with noodles as side, and also sweet and sour pork. All was well cooked and incredibly tasty and well spiced! We'd definitely recommend the red lantern to any mammoth's visitors!

It's not what we expected. But much better. We totally loved the food and the drinks for a very reasonable price. A visit worth if you're in Mammoth's Lake

This was one of the best spots on my trip to mammoth. The food was family style and excellent all the way through. The fried rice was the best and the wine cellar was great looking.
