Description: The Red Lantern opened in 2009, taking over from The Regent which had been there for 18 years. We are a family run restaurant serving authentic Cantonese food. Previuosly from "Charlie Chans" in Chinatown Manchester (which opened back in the 70s) we aim to serve Cantonese food in Burnley that is on a par with any Chinatown restaurant.

Enjoyed a tea with my other half. Reasonable prices, truly caring service, and superb food.
Ideally would renew decoration a bit, but you forget about the furniture as soon as your are greeted by the service and taste the food!

Went to the Sunday buffet. Good food. Plenty of food. You choose what you would like and its freshly cooked to order. Staff friendly. Drinks expensive. Been on another occasion and had a meal for tea. Recommended

Had a set banquet menu which had plenty of choice of food. Loved the starters was not too keen on a couple of the mains but all in all was certainly worth the visit would go again and choose dishes that i prefer. The staff are lovely and value for money is what you get.

Arriving early in the evening my wife and I were the first in the Restaurant. As we were not only celebrating a birthday but also pretty hungry we chose a banquet for two. A medium priced one with crispy duck and a soup starter that didn't include sweetcorn! With plenty of prawn crackers, loads of rice, a large helping of crispy duck and good sized main portions we ended up very well fed that evening. It wasn't cheap, that's for sure, but we thoroughly enjoyed the food and relaxing atmosphere of the place. Strange though that a Chinese restaurant had no obvious Chinese people front of house.
