THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Red Lantern Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED A tasteful alternative to the noisy, crowded and, let’s face it, less-than-noteworthy chain restaurants of CocoWalk, this neighborhood Chinese eatery is for those who favor lean cuisine over teen scene. Red Lantern’s décor is elegant and upscale, the waitstaff professional and the food consistently tasty and fresh. Straightforward Chinese standards are done better here than at most other places (especially the diced chicken with cashews and the pepper steak). The clams simmered with chili in a clay pot is the most delectable dish on the menu; there are also clay-pot versions of chicken, vegetables, grouper or shrimp. Whole steamed or fried fish, expertly filleted tableside, is another recommended specialty of the house.
