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.

Had dinner with friends back in May. Our friends often frequent The Lantern House . Service was very good. Set menu was adequate for four people. If I was in Chelmsford I would pitch up here for dinner. I felt it was a tad pricey.

Lunch time here is lovely. There is normally hardly anyone there as no one realises it's open. You can choose from the usual menu or they do a one course lunch for about a fiver or two courses for £7.50. I often go with colleagues from work. The service is great so if you choose from the lunch menu, you... More

Great quality food (best Chinese i have had in a very long time) Really attentive service but not overpowering , nice atmosphere and decor. All round perfect. The restaurant was full and there...

We must have eaten at the Lantern House dozens of times over the years. We've always found the food to be first class. Called in for dinner with some friends the other evening and we all agreed that the food had moved up a notch to the outstanding level! Certainly the best Chinese restaurant in Chelmsford, if not Essex. Excellent... More

Found this restaurant on trip advisor. Have to agree with the reviews. Food was excellent. The setting was stylish. The staff were courteous. The price was reasonable at 50 pounds for the two of us. The only drawback was that although there were plenty of staff I asked for the bill and had to wait a full 25 minutes for... More

Familiarity breeds contempt and of course as The Lantern House has been my favourite Chinese by far for all these years I have never bothered to write a review. Shame on me and apologies to the great team that have worked there over the years. Going for a night out at the Civic - let's have a meal in the... More
