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

Traditional Chinese Food, beautiful decor, excellent wine list. When in Mammoth Lakes make sure to give it a try. You will not be disappointed.

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.

Yes, you read that correctly. I'm crazy about the wine list at a Chinese restaurant. I couldn't believe that someone had so expertly chosen wines that paired well with Chinese food. We tried several and they were not only great with the food, but fabulous wines on their own. I had to take a photo of the wine list so... More

This was newly opened when we visited in June 2014. It is Chinese/American in style but we had a problem with the spicyness of the food. We are ok generally with hot spicy food but when everything on the menu (including sweet and sour pork) is very hot it gets to be too much. We also had problems seeing the... More

Aaaamazing food! We came here late Friday night very hungry and tired. The service was great and they managed to impress us on every level despite this. I can recommend the Kung Pau shrimp, spicy but the best main course I have had in a very long time. The prices are also great, generally everything about this place is perfect.

Dined while staying at the Sierra Nevada Resort. I wouldn't call it traditional Chinese but we still very much enjoyed the food.

love the atmosphere, the wine list, the food! They have found the best of the various asian cuisine and brought it together at this restaurant. Go out on a date here, too, it's romantic too boot!
