    While on a road trip w/ my Boys and Girls Club high school group I'm involved with, we stayed a night at the Columbia Park Clubhouse. We were hungry and asked them what was good in the neighborhood that could seat 13, and they took us out to Big Lantern Chinese. I'd say it was pretty successful. It had a great feel to in the slightly small restaurant. We ordered all types of different foods, but it wasn't your ordinary plate, they gave us a bunch of different big bowls of Orange Chicken, Kung Pao, Beijing Beef, etc. It had a hella nice traditional family dinner feels to it, plus the food was super good. I just wish it wasn't so small. I felt super squished the whole time. They had Tv's w/ ESPN on, so it's great if your sports fanatic.MY favorite part about Big Lantern was the area. It seemed like a really cool community, and everybody knows each other.Good people. Good Food. Great area. If that's all you care about, then this joint's a win.

    Nothing says treating a hangover without some good ole chinese!We were upset that another Korean restaurant was closed so we decided to try this place out. My friend is a local here and swears by them. We made a simple order of pot stickers and chow mein. The place wasn't terribly packed but we were being patient. Took a little long for a simple order but not to worry! Food came and it was delicious! Not the best but pretty darn good!I'll make sure I come back again!

    They got rid of the super grumpy waiter who was almost always there there grumping around the tables and used to answer the phone a lot - yay!They taste great - at least the things I often order.They have not taken two hours to deliver food since the one time they did... In fact one time they brought food to the door practically right after I hung up the phone and returned from my venture to the corner store. They will even deliver to the Outer Sunset if you order $25 or more - that's good!They're a go-to delivery essential at my house and not bad for dining out either for an inexpensive quick meal or a meal with many people.

    I've never actually been to the restaurant, but I've ordered from them for delivery via Eat24 8-10 times now. I am literally in love with their General chicken. It's this spicy tangy sweet almost dry rubbed dish of deliciousness. I also love their Chow Mein (with beef), which I almost like better cold as leftovers than hot.They are the only place I've had delivered dim sum that were actually great. The one must order are the wontons in chili sauce. So delicious.Only thing I've ordered that I didn't like was the lo mein with pork. The lo mein was great (if a bit tasteless) and was loaded with fresh crispy veggies, but I was not a fan of their roasted pork. I'd also skip the gyoza, they're a bot too doughy. Other than that everything I've had was good.

    Decent dim sum in a pinch and in the mission. Would get dim sum here if i was too lazy to drive to at least SOMA to Canton. Been meaning to go back and try the regular chinese food.

    Usually I like to cook, but the other day I home late. There was nothing in the fridge, and I was too lazy to go to the store. Luckily my neighborhood offers plenty of take-out options; I picked this place, which was just down the street. I had never eaten there, but I was comforted by the fact that it's usually pretty busy inside. The Yelp reviews said it specialized in something called "meatless chicken." It was the most popular thing on the menu.The first time I ordered it, the meatless chicken came in brown cubes. The texture was so meat-like and it tasted so chicken-y that I thought they had made a mistake with my order. Perhaps I was a little naive, but I had eaten plenty of similarly advertised meatless items before. So befuddled was I over the mystery meat's identity that I couldn't finish it.A few days later, I was still so uncertain over my meatless chicken experience that I decided I needed to order it again. This time I ordered the meatless chicken as lunch special with a sesame sauce. (Btw- lunch special is a great deal - it's cheap and it's huge.) The meatless chicken was totally different this time - deep fried and smothered in the sesame sauce to the degree that my taste buds could detect no fake chicken-y taste at all.. Reassured of the product's meatlessness and encouraged by the fact that it was deep fried in fatty goodness, I enjoyed the artificial meat much more the second time around. You can read more about the slippery and subjective boundaries between meatless distaste and delight here, and also see some pics. http://homogastronomicus…I also really liked the onion pancake that comes with a peanut dipping sauce and the chive dumplings. But when I looked at the menu this time I didn't see the dumpings. I'm concerned that they might have been a special.

    (See pics) Review #1116. More of 3.5 stars. Inexpensive greasy good Chinese food (yeah they are many expensive and overpriced ones.) Lots of dish choices. The spring rolls (vegetarian) were good crispy. The eggplant with chicken and prawns came with lots of rice. It was tasty but not that spicy despite the look. Do like how they properly cooked the eggplant to very tender. The dish was loaded with sodium so drink lots of tea afterwards.They also serve dim sum, and a varied selection of faked meat dishes for vegetarians. Have not tried and something to check out on the next visit.The space was nice with the recent renovation, decorations and newer seats that gave the place a clean feel and it was not noisy. Both are a rarity for Chinese places. Good service too.
