We have just dined at The Red Lantern for the first time. The food was lovely, nicely presented and hot. The service was pleasant although a little over enthusiastic at times, in as much as on two occasions, we had our plates whipped away before we had finished eating which I find really irritating. The restaurant itself looks really tired... More

Visited here after seeing the Sunday banquet menu advertised on Facebook. We arrived early afternoon so was a quiet and relaxing atmosphere in the restaurant. Excellent friendly service, the food exceeded our expectations, well presented, good portion sizes, freshly cooked tasty food. We were that full we ended up taking some home in a doggy bag. Would recommend this place,... More

We had a recent family visit on Sunday for the banquet menu. This time we sat on the far side of the restaurant and there was quiet a strong smell of damp, which was off putting. The table next to us mentioned it to the waitress who dismissed it as acceptable due to being in the basement! One of the... More

I took my partner to the Red Lantern for a birthday meal. We turned up and managed to get a table (only just). From walking through the door to leaving, we could not have wished for a better meal or service. The food is fantastic and the staff are brilliant. We have never been here before but we highly recommend... More

My husband and I visited here last night and weren't disappointed. We opted for a banquet, which was excellent along with the choice of wine and the service was very polite and attentive. We will certainly visit again.

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.
