I’m a regular patron of the Red Lantern, The people are the best, they make the best drinks and take great care of their patrons. The food is excellent, from Sushi to special entrees. You should give it a try.

A really great Chinese restaurant, food is excellent and the choice on the menu is extensive. Service was excellent, be careful what you order because the portions are huge, as is often the case in America. A really great experience, we loved it.

Greasy! Food is below average. They pretend to be cool but they are not. It has to be many places better than this in Boston. Please do a better research.

Went there for a date night with my husband. Drinks are expensive but very good. The food was great but could've been more flavorful, not enough spice. Overall I would go back and maybe order something different.

VERY expensive "fusion" (Thai-Chinese-Japanese) that can be had elsewhere for much less. And as for the "service" - practically non-existent. It seems that most restaurants in Boston train their staff to act bored... or blasé... or annoyed with actually having to work for a living....More

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the
heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and
the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable
skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock
Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit
Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques
