I have never tasted Chinese food this bad. We ordered several dishes, kung pao chicken, beef broccoli, combination fried rice, egg drop soup, orange chicken and noodles. When we got home the noodles were not in the bag. Guess they saved us from another bad dish. If my friend had not purchased the food, I would not have eaten this... More

very average indeed. Egg rolls were greasy, but could have overlooked that, after all they're fried, but the broccoli in the 'beef and broccoli' was cut very large (and with chopsticks you can't cut it smaller) and absolutely saturated with oil. The beef was all right, but the steamed rice was too sticky and mushy. When the broccoli was mentioned... More

My family and I stayed at The Sierra Nevada Resort and were recommended by one of the employees to try Red Lantern.(One of the THREE restaurants connected to the Resort). Our taste buds were extremely happy and so were all of us. We had the Orange Chicken, sweet and sour shrimp, beef and broccoli, egg rolls, and chicken fried rice.... More

Decided to have dinner in town before going home. Man am I glad we did. Chef Richie had a great special going on with WonTon Mein soup. Complete with char Sui, house made wontons, thick noodles, mushrooms, and green onions. Oh ya, there was plenty of fresh garlic and ginger too. We also had an order of salt and pepper... More

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...
