We used to love the food here but the last couple times we've ordered the food hasn't been as good. The food isn't as flavorful and the portions are smaller. It has been disappointing.

We were a group of six, and everyone ordered something different. It was all great. Great egg rolls and spring rolls without the grease. Hot and sour soup was very good, but could have been just a bit more sour.

We love Lantern!! We kept striking out on Chinese restaurants in Columbus until we stumbled upon Lantern. Always good food and the dinner portions are HUGE!

Their egg rolls are to die for. Best in Franklin County. The fried rice has lots of vegetables and meat in it. Not just fried with soy sauce but real fried rice. Love it. Not to expensive and the food is great!

Many Chinese restaurants are pretty much the same. Lantern was good, and solid with lots of fresh, crisp vegetables. Spring rolls and lo Mein noodles were very good.

Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Doesn't look like anything from the outside, but inside is totally different. I've lived in the area for 5 years and didn't go in because it didn't look like anything special from the exterior. However, when we had occasion to eat there with friends, I felt like an idiot for not trying it sooner. Pleasantly... More
