I took my partner here for his birthday dinner. It was fantastic. Beautiful food and great friendly service that was not intrusive. The lighting and acoustics in the room are great. I seriously could not fault our visit. Looking forward to returning to this awesome restaurant.

We tried the tasting menu last week. Appetizers dishes were delicate and refreshing! The tasting menu was a medley of "fruit de mer" with a significant hint of Malaysian spices. The Mud Crab is a must try signature dish from this special menu!

This is a popular restaurant and has good reason to be so. We were a group of 8 and had most of the mains on offer. Without exception, they were all wonderful. The servings were generous and all dishes were beautifully presented and extremely tasty. Unfortunately we had no space for any desserts! Our waiter was extremely attentive without being... More

The food and service was spot on. The only restaurant that I've been to that served steamed rice just like how mum makes it, using high quality rice. Will definitely be back! !

LR is distinguished due to its excellent service. and because of the flavours that LR incorporates into the cuisine. The seafood feast is excellent - more flavours that wow your taste buds. The seafood feast menu has new tastes to try and has some favourites - the prawns are there still (if they take the prawns off the menu, there... More

After attending a birthday dinner last night with 15 people, I was the only vegetarian. Lanterne Rooms went above and beyond to cater for me and make me feel special. The staff were exceptionally kind/friendly, but above all... The food was DELICIOUS. Had a banquet of 5+ dishes and each dish made my mouth water. Thank you, Lanterne Rooms for... More

my visit to this restaurant was with a group of 4 couples, close friends of longstanding, and we hadn't all been together for 20+ years,so a long positive dinner. Unfortunately the service and food fell well below expectation. The service took me back to years' spent in Asia with surly and grudging service, verging on outright rude, but not quite.... More

Recently dined at the Lanterne Rooms . For me this fine dining was a most comfortable experience and the food was memorable. The staff explained the combinations of meals and some unknown ingredients without an attitude i have encountered in some fine dining venues. At the end of the meals we were asked if we had had enough to eat... More
