The title says it all. Shirley and the team at the Lantern House have got the award in the bag. Brilliant food, service that matches the food, and all set in a lovely restaurant. Without doubt, the best Chinese restaurant in Chelmsford. The takeaway is bloody good too!

I visited last night to be welcomed by friendly pleasant staff, there was a good choice of food at very competitive prices, the quality of the food was very good and I will visit again next time I'm working in the area.

Myself and my husband are not vegetarian, but both our daughters are strict vegetarians. My husband and myself have eaten in the Lantern House restaurant and always found their food to be really good, so we called to ask if they would be able to offer a vegetarian takeaway meal, i.e. food cooked in oil that has not been used...

It arrived on time, and the staff member taking my order was very helpful, but that is about as much as I can... More
