My husband and I visited here last night and weren't disappointed. We opted for a banquet, which was excellent along with the choice of wine and the service was very polite and attentive. We will certainly visit again.

Hi, you don't always need to book but it might be best at this time of year, we don't do buffet but have a special Sunday 3 course menu at £15 as well as our usual a la carte menu available Thanks Carole

Description
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.
