We had dinner here as a couple. The service was great, lovely atmosphere and delicious, fresh food. Not a cheap eat but worth every cent! I would return for sure!

This is the second time we have been here in 12 months and when we travel from Perth to Sydney now this is the must do restaurant. The food is so fresh, the service is fantastic and the menu is not very big enabling the chefs to prepare quality food and not quantity food. We need a restaurant in Perth... More

Previously night we had 3 course fine dining and we were glad to pick Red Lantern which gave us variety. We decided to pick tasting menu which consisted of 4 entrees and 4 mains. The entrees were just refreshing with lots of fresh flavoursome ingredients. The 4 main meat dishes were also beautifully cooked. All dishes still have traditional Vietnamese... More

We had the eight course tasting menu. As one of us did not eat beef, they offered a couple of options for an alternative course, which was great. Nice clean and fresh flavours rights through the menu was a feature of all dishes. Great evening. Service was courteous and professional.

My husband and I have dined her twice now and most recently for our anniversary and again it didn't let us down. The food here is so amazing with flavours out of this world. Our favourite dish is one of the entrées - Banh Bot Chien WOW It is a bit pricey but totally worth it, staff are very friendly... More

Firstly the food here is really lovely but I didn't find it to be completely amazing. Given the cost of the mains at $38.00 for a small bowl , I thought it was over priced for what we got. Should have probably don the banquet at $69.00pp. It was a Monday night so quieter than normal, and originally we were... More

Dined here with my partner for a special occasion. We have always been fond of Luke Nguyen's TV programs but this was our first visit to one of his restaurants. The food was excellent, a refined and stylish presentation of Vietnamese cuisine. The staff were very relaxed and friendly, which is nice for a restaurant that is very much in... More

Beautiful setting, fantastic staff and amazing food! The hardest thing was choosing what to eat - in the end we selected the $65 tasting menu. Each dish was well constructed, beautifully presented and extremely well balanced in flavour. In particular our highlights were 'Muc Rang Muoi' (lightly battered squid with lemon dipping sauce) and 'Goi Thit Heo, Tom va Do... More
