Put in an order for 9 people as part of a New Year party. Friendly service over the phone, delivered on time and the food was fantastic. Big portions and there was nothing left at the end of the night! Have been looking for a reliable Chinese take away and will be using them again.

There is almost no waiting time if you turn up or phone ahead. I found the staff very friendly and the food hot and well cooked as well as very tasty.

We started to have chinese food delivered from the Lantern House since a couple of weeks and we cannot stop anymore. My son is enthusiastic of the chinese spaghetti and to use the chop sticks! Usually delivered fast and with no problems for the moment. Excellent

We used this takeaway on 20th December 2015, to order for a group of 8 people. The food arrived at exactly the time we had ordered it, it was piping hot, delicious and very good value. What more could you ask for? We are using them again this evening for a Friday night treat!

Despite it's rather shabby exterior along Hatfield Road, Lantern House is an absolute gem for Chinese takeaway. The food is not as greasy as some, the menu is broad, the service fast and the prices cheap. What more do you want? The woman who runs it is also lovely - keep up the good work lady!

First time using Lantern House last week and we weren't disappointed. Ordered for collection and was ready within 20 mins, had two main dishes, a mixed starter, a rice and extra sweet & sour sauce and it came to £21.90 - amazing. The food was tasty, not greasy and the service was fab. We'll be going back!
