Loved the food. We really wanted to have good Chinese food and I must say this is a real gem. Tucked away in a corner, it's a lovely place for hot noodles and soup. It's run by Chinese people who didn't really understand English, but we all managed. And I'm glad! Totally recommend a visit.

Really good food, I will come back here! I've been here twice, the first time I had beef with rice and the second time I ordered chicken. Both dishes were perfect. Chicken still moist, beef was little bit red inside. The service is really friendly! Don't let the decor fool you! You must eat here!

It may surprise you that you can find great Chinese food in Kloten, but Red Lion is a hidden gem of the Canton. The selection is great. You can pre-order steamed crab and whole roasted duck for an extremely reasonable price. The rest of the dishes are great, plus the staff is very friendly.

This little restaurant is a gem. I am a fan and conoisseur of Chinese food and Cantonese food in particular; the cuisine is excellent and very authentic. We had the rice noodles and the Tofu with vegetables (and other things). Both were fantastic. Service was very, very pleasant, helfpul and efficient. A phenomenal dinner all around.

We found the Red Lion quite by accident . We have been regular visitors to the hotels near the airport for many years. However this time we ventured away from the traditionally , hotel, recommended restaurants and strolled to the unassuming building that hosts the Red Lion . My wife a keen judge of surroundings and ambiance, liked the place... More
