This is Chinese American food at its best. The Pork Egg Rolls and Shrimp Toast are outstanding ways to start a meal. All of the entrees are great but they especially do beef really well. It's perfectly cooked, tender, and totally free of fat or gristle. I recommend the Beef Chow Fun or the Crispy Beef. The other really outstanding dish we've had is the Spicy Eggplant with Chicken. I loathe eggplant but this was so good, I couldn't stop eating it.
But the best part of The Paper Lantern is the staff. Everyone is warm and friendly.
