    I visited Lanterne Rooms early on a Friday night with family, consisting of two adults and two children (9, 11). Resulting from the early time there were not too many patrons initially but this swelled towards our departure time. The staff were all amazing from entry, and very attentive and helpful throughout all courses. They offered our kids a normal fish and chips type menu but they are very appreciative of flavour and at the banquet with us and enjoyed every course, just as we did. I observed one of the senior staff members doing some training with a junior person as the night went on which I thought was very professional. Great food, well trained staff and everything was timely and professionally done. Highly recommended.

    Staff were very helpful and excellent in supporting our needs - we were celebrating a birthday. The waiting staff though didn’t seem knowledgeable about the dishes they were serving - they didn’t want explain the content of the dishes unless asked specifically. Parking is a major issue. The car Park is not sign posted and we’re not even sure if restaurant patrons are eligible to park there or not. I parked 2 roads away to be on the safe side. Overall though it was very pleasant and I’m sure to be back.

    Great seating location where we could talk and no worry about other patrons. Food was excellent. Service & wait staff were awesome (we didn't notice them). We ordered more food which wasn't a problem. I would recommend.and will go back.

    Great friendly service, tasty food, for a mid week dinner outing was excellent! Will definitely be going back - most preferably Friday or Saturday night to justify the Chefs Tasting Menu fee:)

    This is one of our favourite restaurants ever since we discovered it in the Campbell shops. The new venue is lovely and the food and service is excellent. My only feedback is for staff to monitor the windows near the outdoor area as guests would leave doors and windows open creating a cold draught for those nearby.

    After hearing a lot about the Lantern Rooms we finally went and we’re not disappointed. Great location, beautiful details such as the flowers on the table and the food was all delightful. Looking forward to going back soon.

    It is still clearly one of Canberra's top Restaurants. Food was mouth watering and service was attentive yet transparent. Extremely enjoyable

    We felt that Lanterne Rooms has lost some of its past ambience in the new premises but realise that it was a necessary business choice. The service was excellent. Wait staff did everything to make our meal pleasurable including providing special dishes for one of our party's allergy to chilli. We the food is not as good as it used to be, missing some of the refinement and oriental elegance of the past. That said, we still enjoyed it and particularly thank the staff for their care and attention

    Interesting and well executed pan-asian (Malay focus) in nice setting with good service. Got the chef's menu- couldn't finish it but to our surprise they offered the leftovers to us in takeaway containers. Had 6:15pm booking on Saturday and expected to be asked to leave at 8pm for the next service but they paced the food well, didn't rush us at all and we left just after 9. Great night out!

    I love all Chairman and Yip restaurants and Lanterne Rooms is not exception: excellent food, excellent service and excellent wine selection. I always find my favourite wines from their cellar collection.

    As usual interesting and delicious food, and excellent and friendly service. The staff were aware of a food intolerance which was well accommodated. We were a little surprised at the small serving sizes for a couple of the dishes.

About the restaurant

Lanterne light...

One of Canberra's best kept secrets. Lanterne Rooms is tucked away at Campbell shops, offering A-ma style Nyonya Malay cuisine with a twist.

The dining room is dark and intimate, making it ideal for couples, and the share style menu makes it great for groups too! The dishes change regularly but in our opinion the seafood items are the real highlight - think fresh XO scallops with mango salsa & sesame leave or steamed mussels with spicy coconut broth.

Come and sample this Canberra institution, you won't regret it!

Best dish: Soton Satay - marinated chilli squit with rojak
