Not sure when the other reviewers dined here but I live in the neighborhood, have been here many times, and have consistently found the place comfortable the food tasty. It is a very small place that is modern in style, well designed using expensive finishes and materials. The lunch specials are especially good and a great value. They do deliver but honestly I typically stick with Spice for Thai delivery.

I really wanted to like this place. I live two blocks away, passed it many times and finally decided to eat there with my better half. First off, the waitstaff has absolutely no clue about the menu, it was absolutely ridiculous. As for entrees, I specifically asked two separate wait staff if the fish dish I was ordering was battered and deep fried, both said no it was just sauteed. I asked if they were sure b/c I didn't want anything fried in batter. Of course the snapper came out looking like fish and chips so I returned it. Then to top things off, my girlfriend ordered mahi mahi which came in two pieces. It was so over cooked it was harder than rubber, we needed a steak knife to cut it and it was inedible. She returned hers and asked for a noodle dish which was $10 cheaper. The waiter asked if we would mind paying the higher price for the fish since we tasted it! Are you kidding me? I then asked to speak to a manager and they said they don't have one. Never going back again. The only thing nice was the ambiance. Don't waste your time or money

I've tried most thai restaurants in the area and keep coming back to Lantern. The food is so good! If you eat in they have dinner/drink specials, and a cool atmosphere. If you take out it's still very good. Just expect a 30 minute or so wait. Overall, I love it.

Food quality was 0 because it didn't show up. Value was 5 because we ended up not paying for it. Service was 0 because we live on the same street as the restaurant, and it still took nearly an hour for the food to show up. Penalty box -- 6 months. Embarassing is a fair word. Could have gone to trader joe's, bought the ingredients and made pad thai myself. True story.

To spicy! Couldn't hardly finish the green curry! Other than that it was great! Tasty

Nothing here left a lasting impression. Dinner entrees portions were very small! My rama sauce chicken had about five very tiny chunks of chicken. My friend also thought her curry entree was small, more sauce than actual food. Flavor and freshness was just OK. I've had much better Thai in NYC. I won't return.

Loved the Udon Spicy Basil Noodle! Rama wok is good too if you like a spicy peanut sauce. Definitely coming back! Great food, great atmosphere!
