"Socializing" Back Bay folks know to "come early or stand in line" for this "happening" Pan-Asian place with "huge Buddha" statues and other "breathtaking", "cool" decor elements; the "nouveau" fusion fare and "inventive" cocktails are "a little overpriced" for some, but you're really "paying for the scene."
Cool decor, delicious food. The best calamari I have had in awhile! The shrimp sumai and even the fried rice were amazing. Did not care for the peach bubble drink, the tapioca pearls were undercooked probably bc they ran out at th he last minute. Great experience otherwise.
We recently had our office Holiday Party at Red Lantern and the party rocked. I am new to the company in the past year and many of our staff members told me that this years party was the best one yet. Largely because of the decor, set up, service, food and over course the drinks at Red Lantern!
If you are planning a large or small group party I highly recommend Red Lantern.
the decor was very cool. there was a long wait for a table on a saturday night, even with a reservation. i noticed several mice running around on the floor throughout the meal. i told the waiter about the mice and he said he would tell the manager but did not offer anything else.
