This was one of the best meals I've had in 20 years living in Canberra. It was a special occasion and they made it very special: not only the adventurous and tasty Asian fusion food but also the charming staff. Excellent all round. We will be back! We have also had excellent meals from the other Chairman Group restaurants in... More

Dined at Lanterne recently to celebrate a friend's birthday. We asked our friendly waitress to put together a menu for us - she did a wonderful job choosing the dishes! Favourite was the spicy chicken and sticky pork belly. Faultless! We will definitely return. What struck me is it's the type of place that's consistent and there's no need for... More

I hadn't been back to Lanterne Rooms for a while so I was wondering if it was as till as good as ever. I was pleased that it was just as good as ever. The food is so amazing and every dish we ordered was perfect. Great accompanying wine list and attentive service.

We had a group of five and we're looking forward to an evening with business friends. Had heard a lot about Lanterne. The menu was interesting but they were pretty inflexible about substitutions (we had a non seafood eater in our party) so we were disappointed. The food itself was quite good but the staff were standoffish. Might return but... More

On the other hand, we are flexible in substituting dishes on our banquet menu if any dietary requirement is informed. I apologise if our staff member did not check with... More

We've been to the Lantern Rooms a few times and it hasn't impressed. But, we decided to give it another shot; and I'm pleased we did: the food and service finally lived up to it's reputation as a first class restaurant! Amongst the many dishes we tried, we were certainly impressed with the duck spring rolls, spicy chicken, sticky pork... More
