This is a small Chinese restaurant in a small but well-known village on the outskirts of Cork City. We have eaten here many times and it is always worthwhile. On this recent visit, we opted for their early evening menu which, at €16.90 for three courses, is exceptional value. My main of duck was sadly, not available on the night,... More

I have eaten here many times both in the restaurant and as a takeaway. I have never been disappointed by the food. Really large menu and everything I have tried has been delicious. When eating in the restaurant the staff are friendly and relaxed. Thoroughly enjoyable dining experience

Good food, reasonable prices and a cosy atmosphere. Friendly staff and a good location in the heart of Blarney. A Chinese meal here and a lively pint across the road in The Muskerry Arms, will add to a great visit to Blarney

Absolutely delicious food and we received great service from our waitress. It's also in a good location, right in the middle of Blarney town with ample parking on the street and nearby car parks. The food was the nicest Chinese food I have tasted in a very long time. We do regular visit to this restaurant it’s probably the best... More

A takeaway of Spring Roll (three tiny items) and Chicken and Sweetcorn Soup (very small bowl) proved to be of low quality therefore walk around the corner for twice the quantity and quality!!!

We have great food in Ireland, but there was literally no better food than we had at the Lantern House. The very affordable food was unique and delicious. I had their sliced steak and my wife had the duck. Everyone in our group ate their recommended dishes and were impressed! Our friends from Australia really enjoyed the Tiger beer.

Food was delicious hot and just enough. Restaurant is on the small side and great prices. Under €10 for a 2 course lunch. Chicken is proper chicken not pumped full of water with jellylike consistency like other Chinese restaurants. Def will return. Great value for money
