We liked the fine Chinese food there. It is too bad that because they offer "fine" Chinese cuisine, they do not have chow mein or wonton noodle soup, something simple and good for your stomach when you are travelling.

After a long day walking we were looking forward to some good food and were fairly impressed with the reviews.

To get a take-away, I called only to be met with an answer machine. Undeterred I went to order and collect at 8:30, having checked they close at 9:00, only to be told on arrival they had stop take-away orders at 8:00.

I must first say that I would have given this very cool restaurant a "5" if it weren't for the initial interaction with the hostess. She definitely needs some training in customer service. She left us sitting in the lobby to go over some training items with a new employee. The restaurant had just opened and we should have been seated.

Now for the important points. The atmosphere is very very cool. Asian decor, and yes, they use the color red brilliantly . The dining room is very rich looking and very cool lighting. The food…..excellent and authentic. The menu is not enormously large, but they do serve the basic vegetarian, beef, chicken and seafood dishes. Also lots of beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholic; good choices. And the service was the best. We had Chris as our waiter/server and he was very attentive and responsive to our needs. Chris had quite a few tables to manage and he was excellent in balancing them all. I highly recommend The Red Lantern, whether you are looking for a special dinner experience or a satisfying casual dinner. I certainly will return.

Slow service - we were asked to wait 10 mins for a table but when we got in there the restaurant only has 4 tables filled.... so loads of space. Waiters seemed to know we were waiting to order but wouldn't even make eye contact. Cleaning - not good. Floor looked like an old nightclubs dance floor and under our table was old food (2 huge brown prawns) Food - slow but ok. Very very expensive for what you get, noodles, rice, soup and egg rolls came to $80! Personally I would not recommend this restaurant.
