Used to eat here regularly in years gone by. Not been for a while but was pleased at how tasty food was. Sunday banquet menu was good value and portion sizes. Loved the beef in black bean. Staff very welcoming. Will definitely be back.

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.
