We visited recently on a Thursday evening, not busy but enough people to make a good atmosphere, chose one of the set menus for two, the usual starters, seaweed, ribs, spring rolls etc, all cooked fresh with beautiful garnish, hot and tasty. Aromatic duck never fails to impress with all the trimmings, then Kung Po chicken, king prawns with veg,... More

Staff were very polite and helpful and... More

Wonderful attentive friendly staff and amazing food. Went last night for the first time based on Trip Advisor reviews and was not disappointed, Kung Po chicken was amazing, seasoning perfect, meat tender and was just a lovely environment to eat in. Will be back - and with little ones next time as they open from lunch times. In the evening... More

Went there last Saturday for the first time in years. And I have no idea why it took me so long to go back.... Food was delicious the smoked chicken and the steamed sea bass were to die for

After watching a T20 cricket match we left the stadium and did a search online for a Chinese nearby. The Lantern House came top so I rang and booked, they managed to get us in with only 20 minutes notice at 9:30 on a Saturday night. We arrived and the table was ready, all was clean and friendly. Drinks were... More

Best Chinese in chelmsford. Great take away service as well. Have visited as a couple, with children and with family and friends in parties of up to 11 people. Always the same friendly service. Great atmosphere for any occasion. Great menu. Food consistently great and well worth the money. Can't think of anything negative to say

The title says it all. It is forgiven for being slightly more expensive than other Chinese restaurants as the food is much more than slightly nicer! The Kung Po chicken, the duck, the noodles... all just really delicious. Eat in or take away the standard is the same. Gorgeous Chinese.
