Popped in to The Lantern House on a whim with my wife and young children. We were there around 1700 hours and so there wasn't many other patrons. The lady who seated and served us was very pleasant and attentive. The food for an inexpensive "regular" restaurant was presented prettily with flowers, and was very tasty. We had satay chicken;...

The four of us arrived on a Saturday night at 7:30. The restaurant was very busy and the staff were extremely busy but this did not detract from their professional service and politeness. The food was delicious - fresh and well presented (when we ran out of pancakes they gave us more without murmur along with onion, cucumber and sauce).... More

Went to The Lantern House last night for their Chinese New Year Banquet. What an evening! Fireworks, dragon dance, raffle, Shaun the Sheep (aka Eddie), Michael Buble & Freddie Mercury. So much effort put in to the evening (the last of three) and thoroughly enjoyed by all. One party had been three years running. Not surprised, it really was fabulous.... More

The lantern house was a nice experience, it was very busy, but slightly claustrophobic. The food was tasty - if a little limited, and the service was quick. Good price too.

Went out of their way to make a celebratory meal really good, even provided a balloon! Lovely service, not intrusive, food excellent and cost acceptable. I would recommend.

Servings are small and taste not great. Is ok but more taste and effort could be put in to the meals.
