We had a group of five and we're looking forward to an evening with business friends. Had heard a lot about Lanterne. The menu was interesting but they were pretty inflexible about substitutions (we had a non seafood eater in our party) so we were disappointed. The food itself was quite good but the staff were standoffish. Might return but... More

We've been to the Lantern Rooms a few times and it hasn't impressed. But, we decided to give it another shot; and I'm pleased we did: the food and service finally lived up to it's reputation as a first class restaurant! Amongst the many dishes we tried, we were certainly impressed with the duck spring rolls, spicy chicken, sticky pork... More

Had wanted to visit Lanterne Rooms multiple times. Had even booked once before but had to cancel. We have visited sister restaurant Malamay and loved it. So first a great atmosphere a bit quirky. Service was outstanding what you expect but dont often recieve. We had Confit Salmon and Egg plant with tofu. Flavours were fantastic, everything cooked just as... More

Third time here for dinner, this time with 5 of us. Sat down at 8pm and left at 10:30am after a delightful banquet dinner. The food here is delicious, the banquet variety is perfect for a group - prawns and wagyu are our favourites, service is spot on, couldn't ask for any more.

The dessert that was on the degustation menu was an indian inspired icecream on top of a bed of fresh pineapple and topped with sweet potato crisps. It was one of the best desserts I've had in a long while. Impressed.

Every aspect was of the highest quality: menu was highly interesting Asian fusion 7-course degustation to matching wines; matching was appropriate and fascinating; service was timely, attentive, and adaptive to dietary needs; settings were elegant.

I don't rate the decor - I focus on the food. The environment was friendly, warm and clean. The food was very good. Tom Yum infused prawns was the best of the bunch, ordered as entree and they were so good we ordered more for main. The Slow Cooked Wagyu Beef curry was also good. The service was fantastic, kept...
