“The best food in town, period.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2011 via mobile

If you love REAL chinese and japanese food you will love this place! Great food, great service, best hot and sour soup ever, i can not say enough good things about this place. Was very sad to see a place like applebees higher on this list. Applebees is a Mcdonalds compared to the Lantern! My family and I eat at the Lantern at least twice a month.
