Heard good reports about the £15 Sunday deal/buffet so we tried it for ourselves. Food was plentiful and service very good. Tables large and round with plenty space between them. Would recommend and would certainly return

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.
