If you like Asia food, but hate the over sauced processed version, you'll love it here. Chicken BREAST, al dente veggies, sauce on the side or nice and light. We loved every dish we had.

Great atmosphere but so so Chinese food with so so chow fun and extra sour spicy shrimp and sweet and sour soup! The only thing that was acceptable was lo mein.

Good food and quick service. Coming from the UK this wasn't quite as an extensive menu as in the UK or as authentic, but it was a really nice meal and we'd definitely go back.

Have now visited the Red Lantern on 3 occasions, once on our visit last year and twice on our stay in Mammoth this year. Every time it has lived up to expectations.

The food is excellent with great flavours and a good variety of dishes, service quick and friendly and the vibe of the restaurant relaxing with gentle background music and tasteful yet understated decor.

By UK standards I wouldn't have said it was that pricey either - party of 6 ate 2 courses and had and alcoholic drink each, $35 a head inc tip. That's not bad - I paid £35 for a similar standard meal in Chinatown in Manchester last year. Yeah you can get cheaper takeaway style Chinese, but it is generally loaded with MSG and bland. You get what you pay for and I say you get close to fine dining at great value for money here.

Couple of points to note if you are visiting - it is closed on a Wed (as is Jimmys upstairs - also highly recommended!) Also book in advance for the weekend as it gets very busy - another good sign I would say.

Overall - can't recommend this place enough and our party all agreed. We've all eaten Chinese food all over the world (2 of the party have been to China) and all concurred that this was up there with the best!
