“Mediocre food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

While none of the food was bad, it was tasteless. Their sign in front of the restaurant said voted best ribs in Palm Beach County. They were non-descript. We were a party of four and the waiter forgot to bring out one of the entres until we reminded him. Otherwise, the service was pleasant.

“Great Neighborhood Chinese Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2013

Local Chinese buffet restaurants are usually more on quantity than quality, so if you are looking for the latter, visit a neighborhood Chinese restaurant like the Red Lantern in Boca. From the friendly welcome to the above-average food, our recent visit there with friends highlighted a very enjoyable night out. The staff is attentive and the food I had was quite delightful. I have eaten here on a number of Florida visits over the years and have always found my meals here consistently good.

“This place quite simply is a harken back to the basics of Neighborhood Chineese Food!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2012

Fresh Veggies, Excellent Spare Ribs, Great Steak Dishes but all prepared by the owner so quality is always there. It might not be GOURMET but either are the prices.....which I prefer!
This is a great place for Lunch too - I got out of there with a table of four for $25.00 - I was embarrassed to pay so little for so much delicious food.

“Hit & Miss...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

While the decor & atmosphere was nice (typically an elderly crowd), the fried rice had a lot to be desired. A bland taste reminiscent of brown rice. Portions & size of the shrimp could have also been larger. I also found it hilarious that they couldn't fit "restaurant" on their marquee. Instead, they simply put "REST." LOL!
