Their egg rolls are to die for. Best in Franklin County. The fried rice has lots of vegetables and meat in it. Not just fried with soy sauce but real fried rice. Love it. Not to expensive and the food is great!

Many Chinese restaurants are pretty much the same. Lantern was good, and solid with lots of fresh, crisp vegetables. Spring rolls and lo Mein noodles were very good.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Doesn't look like anything from the outside, but inside is totally different. I've lived in the area for 5 years and didn't go in because it didn't look like anything special from the exterior. However, when we had occasion to eat there with friends, I felt like an idiot for not trying it sooner. Pleasantly... More

I have been eating here for around 20 yrs. I grew up around the corner from the Latern and now I live just up the street from it. In fact it's very easy to order take out on the phone and pick up on the way home. I haven't found a menu item I didn't like. And the spring rolls... More

We ordered sesame chicken and schezwan chicken. Food was ok I could tell it wasn't made to order fresh. Not hot and crispy like you would expect for freshly prepared. I thought it to be a bit pricy as well for what you get.

If you want great, fast and affordable in a nice quiet atmosphere...look no further! They have excellent EGG ROLLS! Great hot and sour soup! I have tried many things on the menu from seafood to chicken over the course of the years and never had a bad item. My favorite go to entree is Mala Chicken....goodnight Gracie!

whenever I eat at a Chinese restaurant, I always get the Sweet and Sour Chicken. This time was no different....it was very good. I usually prefer it when they serve the sauce on the side, but it was still very good. My friend ordered the Orange Shrimp....that is his favorite dish there. Because I am not fan of egg rolls,...
