The food is just wonderful which is the principal reason for going. Loved the Rendang. The decor is excellent and my wife just loves it. Another good reason for going.

Went there for a family birthday party and its was amazing. Great food. I loves the wonton soup. Great service, waiters were humble and polite. The location is a bit out of central location but this adds a bit of uniqueness to the venue.

My friend and I could not decide so we ordered all the entrees to share. Very obliging waiting staff and chef! The presentation made the food very appealing and then there was the taste. Delicious

One of Canberra's better restaurants, equally good for a romantic meal, formal/business function or lunch.

We went for New Year's Eve special degustation menu. The surroundings, a small suburban shopping centre, didn't look promising but, once inside, it was all good Terrific food. Lightly done with gently applied Malay spices and plenty of variety. Loved the kingfish cerviche and the chicken. The dessert was beautiful. Excellent and personable service. Overall, well worth its high rating.... More

We shared the lamb and duck appetizers (entrees), the barramundi main (6 pieces-enough for two or three to share), and the kolfi dessert. All were amazing recommendations by our server Damon. Fabulous food and service. Do not miss if in Canberra.

Despite its rather different location, Lanterne Rooms is an excellent restaurant. The Nyonya cuisine reflects its Malaysian origins and provides an opportunity to taste and enjoy this style of food which is not often freely or easily available in our State Capitals. However, Australian cuisine is not ignored and our heritage dishes are reflected in the extremely contemporary menu. The... More

Went to the Lanterne rooms with family a few weeks ago (including brother and partner from Sydney) and everyone loved it. My wife and I returned for our anniversary the week before Christmas and our opinion did not change. Fantastic, professional service and beautiful food. Duck rolls, pork belly, wagyu beef curry and shanghai seafood noodles - all delicious. Thank... More

The entrance of the Lanterne Rooms is very non-descript and looks like a low end Chinese restaurant. Don't be fooled by the humble facade, this is an excellent restaurant in my opinion. We booked as a group of 4 with only a 630pm seating available on a Thursday and the place was full by 7pm. Most of the crowd seemed... More
