Wonderful, creative food. Excellent service.
I have been to Red Lantern quite a few times and as always found it amazing. My favourite restaurant-ever. Food is superb, service is always attentive, tasting menus are wonderful. Special fuss was made for my birthday which was lovely. Always a pleasure planning a return visit already....
Excellent food and service - highly recommend
Went for our wedding anniversary. Not cheap but oh my, the food was awesome, so fresh, flavours!!! Service was excellent as well, thoroughly enjoyed, thanks.
Loved it! Great food. Great wine. Good vibe. Service was excellent and staff were helpful. Not the cheapest meal in town, but good value for a nice night out for something a bit special.
This is where dreams are made & tasted.From the moment you walk into this fine dining experience the atmosphere is second to none.Staff are attentive & can almost predict what you want.We chose No.1 of 3 tasting menus Saigon Scrumptious Tasting Menu & it did not disappoint.Flavours were outrageous & some you thought just shouldn't work but then an explosion happens & all doubts are thrown out the window from the first mouthfull.I'd tell you about the rest but you should experience yourself xoxo
Really great find! If you are in Sydney it is worth paying it a visit. Off the beaten tourist path. The $85 tasting menu was well chosen.
Was really excited to go, from Melbourne & booked a few weeks ago,felt quite disappointed 😔 We went on a Sunday night and very busy. Don’t have a problem with that at all & don’t think this should compromise service etc at such a well known restaurant. Didn’t change bowls between courses, had to put hand up for service, I hate doing that! Food good but service and a few other things could really be improved. Oh and then we went to pay & heaven forbid we wanted to pay cash & they had no change!!
Had a great meal out with friends. All out dietary needs were more than met. Loved to try all the tasting dishes. It was a friendly atmosphere.
Absolutely hands down brilliant. Stop reading and book a table. I promise you won't regret it.
This was a special occasion. My partner was heading off overseas for 2 weeks so an opportunity to have a romantic and special dinner.
Staff were superb. Helpful without ever being intrusive. I had mistakenly booked a table online for 23rd March. This was corrected and we had a lovely table.
Luke was there and came to our table to formally welcome us.
Food superb and whilst there was some general noise our table turned out to be the best table in the house.
The Red Lantern is superb.
The quality of food and portions were perfect. The decor is warm, welcoming and very beautifully designed.
We went to celebrate my partners birthday (who's gluten free) and the majority of dishes on the banquet menu were gluten friendly.
We loved it and the kids loved it too.
Only would like to have known about cake-age fee, but the service and additional ice-cream (which again we all loved) was well received.
Couldn’t fault the food or the service. Have been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time, so glad we did! We ordered the $85 set menu and every dish was delicious. Can’t wait to go back !
A little disappointed last night to be honest. Very ordinary service, felt a bit like a production line. Quite expensive for the size dishes in the set menu. Good good but not mind blowing, goat was tough! Lovely decor and not noisey but missing customer service and authentic interaction with the staff. Try Kylie Kwong instead, better food and impeccable service.
I love this place, the food is always good.
Tried the Saigon degustation menu,was very good.
Celebrated by anniversary and valentines at this place. Perfect location.
We enjoyed the larger tasting menu. At $85 it was simply a bargain.
Absolutely delicious flavours, well matched wines together with a friendly and knowledgeable team that made our evening one to remember.
The wine list is very well priced and complements the food.
We have been to Red Lantern before and we will definitely go again - soon.
Great food selection and the service was wonderful from the moment we walked in the door to the moment we left and even though the restaurant was at it's busiest, everything just flowed
I had long been wanting to dine at Red Lantern and I must say I was not disappointed. Great Ambience, sensational food, great cocktails and excellent service. I would definately recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting to experience delicious Vietnamese food.
My Husband and I love Red Lantern . From the moment you walk into the restaurant you are made to feel special. The Food is delicious, the service is always impeccable and the atmosphere oozes warmth and character. Red Lantern is our favourite place to visit for any occasion.
Delicious food. Friendly, efficient and informative service. A gem.
A legendary venue in a new location for us. Excellent food, well matched wines, great service.
Absolutely gorgeous food; made even more special by caring and attentive staff.
We only go for special occasions and it never fails...
Hands down best food we’ve had. Variety & flavours were amazing. We had the Tasting Menu & loved every single dish.
We have travelled to Vietnam twice & followed Luke’s shows & love his recipe books so was a great treat to finally dine here. Took us straight back to Vietnam!
Everyone really enjoyed the dinning experience. Friends from interstate wanted to go there. We had the banquet and allowed us to try a wide range. The food was excellent, could not fault it. The cost was a bit high but would be OK paying that for special occasions.
Great Vietnamese food in an upmarket ambience. Efficient and friendly service.
From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel special. We had commented on high noise levels in the past so were seated in the quieter part of the restaurant (at the back, highly recommended) and given complimentary champagne to compensate. The food was superb (the pork belly and chicken dishes were particularly delicious) and the service was attentive and friendly. We were also delighted and surprised to be given complimentary desserts, which were exotic and a great hit!
Visiting from interstate we'd hope to sample as much as we could from Luke/Mark/Pauline's delights in one sitting. The vegetarian tasting plate at RedLantern offered the perfect amount of variety and flavour. Complimented by some quality wines and extremely attentive staff looking after all of our needs, we walked away feeling like we'd properly experienced the food RedLantern had to offer. We Won't hesitate booking here again when we return to Sydney and need to dine out in comfort..
What a spectacular evening. The restaurant is gorgeous, the staff completely welcoming and the food - divine!
As always our dining experience was thoroughly enjoyable.
The food is reliably delicious and the staff warm, gracious and attentive. My husbands dietary requirements were easily catered for; and, we really appreciated the generosity of the complimentary bubbles when we arrived.
Sharing on a table of 4 people was a great way to experience a large variety of beautiful flavours - thoroughly enjoyed by all & the quality of the staff was exceptional & very helpful. There was nothing to fault about the restaurant, food & service. Lovely food & always worthy of revisiting.
Red Lantern met all my exceptions, I truly enjoyed my evening and meal.
Great service, great atmosphere and a truly wonderful menu - we loved it and will be back.
I’ve wanted to eat at Red Lantern since I found out Luke Nguyen had a restaurant as I am an avid fan of his cooking shows. My husband and I live in Auckland so eating at the restaurant has been a few years in the making. And can I just say it was well worth the wait! The ambiance, food and staff were outstanding not to forget the delicious cocktails.
What’s makes it even more special is my husband tried squid for the first time ever and he loved it.
Red Lantern lived up to all the cookbooks...: just Superduppa FABULOUS!!
A fabulous dinning experience. Exquisite flavours and food combinations. All dishes are balanced and prepared to create a tantalizing food and wine experience.
An excellent experience from the moment we arrived. Every dish we ordered was delicious & intensely flavoured. The staff were friendly & attentive.
The entire experience at Red Lantern was outstanding. The cuisine was exceptional.
Great meal again and the service was also terrific from everyone on the floor. The food is fantastic. Good to see tofu back in the mushroom hotpot. I always want to order more dishes than I can eat so that I can experience it all. The wine list isn't huge but there are some good wines by the bottle and there is some very helpful wine knowledge if you're not sure what to order. We've been quite a few times now and it is becoming a favourite place to eat.
As always, beautiful food with mighty fine staff. A great place to dine.
Excellent food with good value for money. Range of options very good. Service excellent have been many times before and will go back every time in Sydney.
