Got the pork dumplings as an appetizer. So good I may order a few next time to be my whole meal! Entrees are excellent. Think it'd be hard to go wrong here.

Lantern is my go-to restaurant for celebrations and anniversaries. The food is always wonderful-- fresh, hot, and unique! The chicken with shrimp fried rice is always a great basic, but any of their meat options are cooked to perfection! Not to mention that the staff is very friendly and attentive. I do recommend making reservations more than a week ahead of time, it is a smaller-sized restaurant so it books up fast!

Asian fusion that is a perfect blend. Service is attentive, and knows the menu like the back of their hand. Always great suggestions and options. The whole experience is always great (including our most recent visit). Must not be missed if dining in Chapel Hill!

I was disappointed in The Lantern. The food was tasty but way overpriced for the quality and selection offered. I guess it's the high-end restaurant in Chapel Hill.

Atmosphere (in the bar area) is dark but lively. The bartenders and servers are polite and did an excellent job. I thought that the cocktails could be improved.
