I was a guest of a client. He told me the place was beyond praise. We sat, had a drink, had a pretty nice but average meal served very casually and a bit too speedily, talked our business and left. I thanked my host and he said that he thought that the restaurant had gone down since his last visit. No complaints but no praise either.

It is a pleasure to eat here. The food is delicious and the banquet offered is an easy choice with guests, with a good range of dishes. The lighting is ideally muted and the tables are arranged well for conversation but the atmosphere is cosy. Wait staff are unobtrusive and very helpful. Water glasses are kept full. Reasonable range of wine with some pleasant choices by the glass. Parking is easy and free whilst close to the city. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Lanterne Rooms. It was very different from what I expected - the dishes were really unique - Asian but with a really different spin. Amazing flavours and textures. The service was polite and efficient with the wait staff always there when you needed something but quietly in the background rather than being noticeable. Nice for a special evening out.

Whilst different than Chairman & Yip the quality is as good if not better. Excellent service and unique menu.
