Nice looking place. Had me worried when at 6:00 on a Saturday night we were the only ones there. Pot stickers tasted like they had freezer burn. My orange chicken ...well I would just say that I have had better chicken nuggets at McDonalds. The chef cared not a lick at the observation. I won't be back and I doubt... More

Ate here because it was next door to the Sierra Nevada Lodge where we were staying. The atmosphere was romantic and the food is delicious. The outstanding staff set the tone for a really nice night.

The confusion reflected below stems from the fact that the restaurant had been closed for over a year and this week opened with new menu and chef. The menu is creative and great value. Try the shrimp and walnut salad. The halibut was very nice. Don't miss the house made sorbets, intensely flavorful. Nice wine list and great decor, certainly... More

We were told we were at Red Lantern for there opening night, but judging by the reviews here something got lost in the translation from American to Australian. We had no booking and were told there was a 15 minute wait for a table. We waited in a very cold and drafty entrance for about 10 minutes. It was somewhat... More

When it opened last year, The Red Lantern filled the need for a good Chinese restaurant in town. The dining rooms very elegant and it's a very pleasant place to dine. The menu offers good choices and we like the food here. We hope it will succeed and plan to return to do our part. My only question--one for any... More

The red decor of the Red Lantern is a cosy elegant atmosphere to enjoy the Asian Cusine in. The Lychee Martini's were wonderful along with the Spicy shrimp and so many other delightful and tasty menu treats. Had a great time and so will you!

If you like Asia food, but hate the over sauced processed version, you'll love it here. Chicken BREAST, al dente veggies, sauce on the side or nice and light. We loved every dish we had.
