Ticked all our boxes, we had the tasting menu and was not disappointed. Every dish was a adventure of the taste buds. My favourite would have to be the lychee salad and fish in coconut milk. We are not food connoisseurs but we walked away very satisfied with our evening out. The wait staff were also very good.

Address changed now in Darlinghurst It is surprising that such a popular much reviewed place hasn't been updated since 2013 We haven't been since then

We had a very enjoyable meal at the Red Lantern and I couldn't really fault anything. The food was well prepared and fresh, the service was pretty good on a very busy night.

The only thing is, there was not a wow moment, where you go, that was the best ....... I have had, or that service was amazing.

It's sort of pitched as a wow restaurant.

The restaurant is a short walk from Hyde Park Pullman in Surrey Hills and it was in a quaint street near a couple of other small eating places.The decor is simple but exotic with reds and timber detailing .
The atmosphere was relaxed but service was very attentive and the waiters were quiet and efficient .We were able to hear ourselves speak with no loud music to ruin the night

The proprietors of this restaurant are second-generation Australian Vietnamese. Their parents had a very successful restaurant in Sydney's Vietnamese hub, in the distant suburb of Cabramatta. The younger generation acquired premises in trendy inner-city Surry Hills, painted and decorated the restaurant themselves and began serving great Vietnamese food in stylish, comfortable surroundings. Boom! Instant success, sustained now for some years, and a host of imitators. Their food continues to be absolutely great, whether at the original Red Lantern in Surry Hills, or sibling Red Lantern on Riley. Read their moving story and great recipes in "Secrets of the Red Lantern", by Pauline Nuyen, one of the restaurant founders.
