The Vietnamese Lantern is a nice enough Chinese style restaurant, but several years ago, I asked the waitress to guide me in selecting a dish off the menu. She recommended the sesame chicken (off the menu - not the buffet). It is the best. The chicken and batter is carmelized just perfectly - unlike any other sesame chicken I've had... More

Friendly staff, bad food! Food was just not good. It didn't have a good taste. Not enough spice. This place could improve.

It's been a very long time since I've had lo mien that tasted good and was done properly and you will find it here (it even had those super flat mushrooms in it - crimini?). I had lunch at the buffet and found a mix of Vietnamese and Chinese food. But, the flavors were there (it wasn't dumbed down as... More

Stopped this evening. My wife and I had two bowls of Pho soup. We had fried spring rolls and an order of General Tso's chicken. The restaurant itself is definitely a mom and pop atmosphere. The Pho soup was absolutely wonderful. The General Tso's chicken was as good or better than the Beijing General Tso's chicken in Duluth. We prefer... More

Well to be honest, the food wasn't that bad, it was Chinese, westernized! Not the real Vietnamese food, in its real form. Service started off good, fast and efficient, cooking time was not long, as we had starters so it seemed as we finished, the food arrived. Large portions, plenty of rice. When the main waitress left and the boss... More

I have read some of the reviews, and agree with some and disagree with others. Here's the scoop: This is an average Chinese buffet place. The food is not overly sophisticated or breath-taking. The atmosphere is kind of retro-70's mixed with Vietnamese flavor. When I go, I hit the buffet and enjoy what i know I will get: Typical Chinese... More
