Five of us for dinner. Gave us a chance to sample a number of different items. Started with regular eggroll and veggie eggroll. Other selections were chicken, spicy shrimp, brown rice and fried rice with chicken. Not much left. Everyone enjoyed.

Little Lan's is a reliable choice when you're in a time crunch. The menu has all the popular standards. The food is average--a step above a greasy spoon, but it's not Lao Szechuan.

This is our local Chinese restaurant that offers more than just chow mein. In fact, I think their best dish is the pad thai. We like their food and it's always made exactly the same. You know what you're getting!

We like Little Lan's and eat there frequently. Never have had a bad meal and find the service to be quite efficient. I love the MaPa Tofu and the vegetarian egg rolls. To me the MaPa is the best.

We order from this place a lot. Been hard to find good egg rolls. They have wonderful dishes and soups. Delivery is pretty fast and they will do other options if you would like different vegetables in something. Never a disappointment. Slightly pricey but great...More

Being locals, we try to support our community's places of business, but nothing can persuade us to eat here again after multiple bad meals. Service is marginal at best, food is sub-par and overpriced, and we are always left asking each other why we ordered...More

We decided to give Little Lan's another try after a lengthy hiatus. Bad idea. Besides getting a wrong item in our order, the food was flat and boring, much like our last experience. No reason to give a third chance. Really a shame, since it...More

There are few Asian restaurants around the North Shore. This one has been around for many years. Though the food ingredients are fine, the final product is often greasy. And I don't think I could ever dine-in here due to the dated decor and greasy...More
