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.

This is our closest Chinese restaurant (within walking distance to home) and we have used Lantern House (opposite The Ship pub) regularly for the past 6 years. The menu is not overwhelming and rarely changes but the food and service is consistently good. It is probably not the best Chinese you will ever have, but you will not be disappointed... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant on Thursday evening after we had read some of their reviews on Trip Advisor. It does prove the power of Trip Advisor because we npknew nothing about the restaurants in Chelmsford and decided to find The Lantern House due to the recommendations. It did not disappoint. We were served quietly with friendly efficiency... More

As we live nearby, we visit here quite often. Food first rate and FAST! The decor is pristine and the beautifully laid tables and fresh oriental flowers finish off the whole picture.
