The waitress was incredibly
The waitress was incredibly attentive and friendly. She went out of her way to serve us and even made a drink not on the menu. The portions were very large and delicious. The sushi rolls were well priced and creative. I would return again.

Best Meal Ever at Foxwoods!
Great cocktails! The mai-tai was a great adult version, not overly sweet like you usually get at ordinary chinese restaurants. We focused on the seafood. The tuna tartar was particularly awesome with crunchy wantons & noodles in a spicy soy sauce. The lobster rangoons were also very tasty. Entrees included a delicious Singapore street noodles, which were somewhat similar to a spicy pad thai, with lots of shrimp, scallops, and pork. My partner had the miso glazed sea bass on coconut rice, which was delicious, especially when we kicked the spice up a notch by adding some wasabi. Fried ice cream for dessert, subtly flavored with star anise and green tea, was a nice ending to a fabulous dinner.

A few of us had dinner there before a concert and told the waitress of our timeframe. He was very attentive and help us by bringing our orders quickly and checking on us often.

The wine selection was extensive
The wine selection was extensive but we chose the 64 oz scorpion bowl, while very fruity and delicious but it didn't have enough liquor taste or kick.
The mongolian beef dinner was so delicious and the other dishes we had were perfect in flavor, creativity and portions, actually healthily portioned. Thanks! I thought the decorations and furniture were boring, all you could see was red fixtures for miles, though the chair and tableware were good. Open kitchen was nice and we had a nook type seat that was kind of blocking the light from the kitchen but it made it quiet. You can't have everything.

Shrine is fabulous! My husband and I went for a date-night dinner. We got a couple of the specialty martinis to start, followed by the beef skewers and a lobster roll for starters. The beef was so tender, and the lobster roll was fabulous 8 rolls full of huge chucks of lobster! For our main dinner, we ordered the deluxe sushi platter. The platter did not disappoint with extremely fresh fish and a lot of it. It was perfect for two people who love sushi! The service was really great as well. Our waitress was very attentive and kept our water glasses full and checked several times check if we needed anything. The atmosphere is very romantic, since the dance club/lounge hadn't gotten busy yet. It is quite a bit pricey but definitely worth it!

We had a TravelZoo deal for drinks and a meal for Shrine. We went on a Thursday evening at 6:00 and the place was empty. The hostess wasn't the friendliest, but our waitress was very nice. We had the lobster rangoons as an appetizer and they were amazing. I had two maki rolls which were both very good andybsister had the beef lo mein which she raved about. For dessert we had fried ice cream which was very good and the banana spring rolls which were okay at best. Maybe on the weekend it would have been a better crowd and would have added to our experience. If I'm ever at the casino, I would definitely consider Shrine again.

Not a great place for conversation,
Not a great place for conversation, and I like a more friendly and attentive waitstaff, but then I remembered it's a dance club as well as exquisite dining. Keeping that perspective I'd go again. Food was amazing.

Great Food Great Service
A meal at Shrine is always special for us and has never disappointed. From the time we step in the door until we leave we enjoy ourselves. I'm not a lover or sushi but my dining companions who are, say there is none better anywhere. I always try the chef specials and the seasonal desserts are truly inspiring. Shrine makes the best hot and sour soup bar none! I never eat there without getting a bowl.

Pretty pricy but surprisingly good portions. Food was very good. Waitress/Service were great! Was there celebrating a birthday with a large group. We asked about the club part of the bar and were surprised with VIP passes! Had a great dinner that was followed up with a lot of late night fun at the club.

Alyssa's bachelorette weekend
We went to Foxwoods for a weekend getaway for our bride to be. We attended liquid Sundays pool party and for dinner Shrine. The atmosphere was just what we were looking for. Some place trendy and hip; and also a first for all of us. We ate family style which was a great idea since there was 11 of us. It was also a great idea because we got to try a lot of different and delicious dishes. our server was awesome to have to deal with 11 girls with wedding fever and a million questions to back! I will definitely be back, hopefully I can take advantage of the beautiful outdoor eating area with a nice cocktail. See you soon Shrine ;)

Great Once Again
Went here on a Friday night and the service was great. The food was excellent. My wife and shared the potstickers to start and they had a tasty soy glaze on them. My wife got the tuna sandwich which is some sort of lightly battered sushi, highly recommended. I got General Tso's Chicken which was very flavorful and huge portions. I highly recommend this restaurant if find yourself at MGM Grand Foxwoods.

Love the new lounge area upstairs
Love the new lounge area upstairs in the soon to be Red Lantern Lounge. The food was delicious and the hostess terrific as usual. Thank you for the great table in the Lounge area and for always seating me so quickly each time I visit. It is much appreciated.

Not your typical asian cuisene
Reservations for 7:15, had to wait about 8 minutes to be seated, server was prompt, appetizer came out quick, main entree took awhile to come out however it was very good, Mongolian Beek Skirt Steak. Room was very chilly, seated right under air conditioner, didn't complain, bottle of wine kept me warm. Overall , very nice experience, would most likley return, not your typical steak house or Italian fare that you can get anywhere.

I've been a regular here for years and this was my first time trying the new Red Lantern menu. Everything was amazing! We especially loved the Gem Roll and Shrimp Yaki Udon. Service was attentive but not over-bearing. I'll be back the next time I'm at Foxwoods.

Awesome Asian-Fusion Restaurant
From sushi to traditional Asian dishes to great specialty drinks. Red Lantern was great for a special birthday dinner at Foxwoods.

LOW KEY WITH AMBIENCE, thus
LOW KEY WITH AMBIENCE, thus allowing a romantic dinner or conversation among friends (at least near the dinner our as I imagine late night is more lively with the bar-club downstairs) prior to catching a show at the casino. Asian restaurant with standarde and unique sushi options, along with standard cooked options, and an extensive beer, mixed drinks, whine list. Due to its vicinity within the MGM grand, excellent place to catch dinner prior to catching a show at the theatre. The cost of your bill can roll up quickly with drinks in sushi, but for a special occasion or a night out, worth it.

New Name, but still great food
This was my first time going to the Red Lantern in Foxwoods, the wait staff was very helpful and they knew everything on the menu. Meg the restaurant manager was a great help with showing use the new menu. The food and drinks where great can't wait to go again

Can't Get Enough
Love this place. So convenient now that it's @ MGM. Food us delicious and the portions are huge. The drink menu is what gets me every time, there are so many signature cocktails to choose from!! And the price is no surprise. Everyone from the hostess to the bartender to the waitstaff has been friendly and welcoming every time. I look forward to my next visit.

The food was very good, particulalr
The food was very good, particulalry the Singpaore Noodles. The Hot and Sour soup was "Hot" wihtout the "Sour". While it was chock full of goodies in it, it could have used a little more sour. The wait staff was attentive and efficient. The ambience was nice, but the driving electronic music wasnt something I expected in an Asian restaurant.
