The service is very professional but lacks a little in personality. The sweet & sour lamb was ok but the duck spring rolls yummy. The beef curry wad good, the fish of the day (barramundi) was average and lacked the flavour from the fish due the fried coating round it. Definitely worth trying.

Lanterns Room continued in the tradition of fine fusion food and excellent service typical of the Chairman and Yip group. Always good value and fine flavours and textured

Have been a few times now and the food is always amazing. The only critisism would be the service. Our waiter seemed liked he'd rather be home then serving and came across rude majority of the night.

Lanterne Rooms is a very consistent performer in the high end dining stakes. Our last meal there was the banquet and it was excellent with good variety and flawless execution. The staff, as ever, are efficient, courteous and pleased to engage with the customers about the menu selections and your choices. With a BYO option and good parking options available... More

Booked a table for a special occasion to celebrate a fami birthday. Very pleasant experience. The food was very good but the standout feature was the service. Standout dishes from our choices was the kampung curry and the duck entrée.

You'll get food just as good and better service at many other places in Canberra at half the price. Yeah they have a "hat" but the service was slow, orders mixed up and they kind of straddle this "are we fine dining are we not" space and it just makes you feel weird. Sure the food was nice but lots... More

The four of us were tempted here by the dinner banquet option (it requires a minimum of four people). The restaurant offers a quiet and reasonably private place for dining so I was not surprised to recognise a number of senior public officials at other tables. The room is broken up by a series of shutters that assists to make... More

We had the Chef Hat special and had 7 dishes. Each meal was amazing with so many delicious flavours. Staff were great and attentive. Great decor and highly recommend it.

Very nice restaurant although not in City Centre area, but really worth a visit! Good environment, ambience and most importantly fairly high food quality. Asian style in western presentation.
