“Tasty food, excellent staff, good experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2011

Had a very tasty meal here, really enjoyed it and there was plenty in the portion. The staff where excellent , couldn't do enough for us. All in all had a good experience at the Lantern, and will go back again. If you like Chinese food would recommend you visit this restaurant, and must say the prices are not to bad, for food however only bottle beer available and that is a bit pricey.
