If the overhead fans were whirring and the atmosphere heavy with humidity you could forgive yourself for thinking you were in an exotic Asian location. Once you are in the door. Service is excellent and while prices are too high for it to be a local regular the food is good quality and flavoursome.

I like Lanterne Rooms very much. Sure there are other great Malaysian/Southeast Asian restaurants in Canberra, but Lanterne Rooms is a class above. The service and the innovative cooking make the restaurant a stand out.

My family and I recently visited Lanterne Rooms for the first time, for my Dad's birthday. Although I had heard it was nice, Lanterne Rooms was beyond fabulous and we really enjoyed our dinner, which on the advice of the waiter, was a Chef's Selection menu. The service was also fantastic and each of the staff that we came into... More

If we have interstate visitors we head for The Lanterne room because we can always get a table which is not noisy. As well the Asian food is very tasty. Service excellent and moderate prices

We ordered the banquet menu for dinner. This includes several small dishes, a glass of wine and desert. Although individually small, the dishes add up to sufficient for dinner and were all delicious. Service was attentive and fast.

So many interesting and different fusion flavours. The ambience was amazing and they catered for kids. We will keep coming back until they disappoint. This is our 8th visit.

The service is very professional but lacks a little in personality. The sweet & sour lamb was ok but the duck spring rolls yummy. The beef curry wad good, the fish of the day (barramundi) was average and lacked the flavour from the fish due the fried coating round it. Definitely worth trying.
