Delicious food!

The food was delicious, delivery was convenient. They even allowed me to pick something not exactly on the menu. We had a small issue with some spring rolls being overdone, but they happily delivered replacements.

The ambiance was nice, the server was very efficient and the hot and spicy soup was pretty good. The one thing that I did not like that much was that we were sitting right next to the area where the food is prepared so it was pretty loud. There are rooms that are further away from the kitchen, so the... More

got reasonable sized portions and was of pretty good quality but just felt that, because restaurant was busy, that everything was hurried. Wouldnt put me off going back though as handy for Sierra Nevada Hotel

Cool decor and ambiance-- lotsa red lanterns. Mix of booths and tables. Quiet but not silent on a Sunday around 6pm. Locals and tourists. Relatively poor service (only check with us once) combined with average food. We had mongolian beef & kung pao chicken. Food was okay and arrived quickly. Not cheap, but not outa line either ($14 per entree)... More

I wanted to try some Chinese food. I really liked the appetizers here. We had the lettuce wraps and wontons. The cocktails were kind of wierd with odd ingredients. Saki was served cold. Our main dishes were good. I had Kung Pau Chicken. Some of the others at the table were less impressed. One had eggplant.

Was recently on a trip in Mammoth with my sons and some friends. We were staying at the Sierra Nevada Resort and Spa. Anyway, we all decided to eat at the Red Lantern one night. This place was so cool, and not just because of the wooden bears wearing traditional Asian conical hats in front of the restaurant! The red... More

Finally, an amazing Chinese in Mammoth. I think it's been here a couple of years, but we just checked it out a few days ago. Definitely have the Won Ton Soup. One order serves at least two. Really tasty! The lettuce cups .... Are amazing and served with bib lettuce that doesn't break apart as much as ice berg. For... More

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
