Went with a great group of people and we had a great time. The food was excellent and there was an excellent range for us to select from. The staff were great as well. We all had a great time and I would definitely love to go back again.

We went to the restaurant in the weekend.Parking is available.The outdoor garden is lovely.Inside too the ambience is nice.But can't say much about the food.One or two dishes were good but the rest was average.Also,its overpriced.Honestly didn't think much about it.

We went to the Adliya location on Thursday and enjoyed a marvelous meal. Tandoori items, breads, vegetables and spicy chicken were all served by friendly and efficient staff. Excellent value as well

Went to try the dhabba lunch last week. An absolute steal at 5.9bd per head. Nice range of starters and mains on the buffet but the winner for me was the little mini grills of chicken brought fresh to the table. Absolutely delicious, they even brought a second one when I asked and we weren't charged any extra. I love... More

Lanterns has a cool open-air garden just outside the main restaurant, with a nice bar and a great ambiance. This will be great when the weather is cool, you will enjoy sitting there and enjoying the music!
