I go to Lantern with colleagues at least two times a week. The manager served us as it was a busy day it seemed she helped in the kitchen that day. She threw down the food on the table for the 5 people at my table. It seemed we were supposed to figure out who got what. When we asked to speak with her because we felt she treated us poorly, one of the waiters told us "she said she is not coming out she is busy." That waiter did not even concern himself with asking us what the problem was or whether he could resolve it . We were all hurt and insulted as we were regulars who always left at least a 20% tip. We have resolved that we will not contribute to keeping them busy, we will not be returning.

Excellent food, very warm and comfortable atmosphere, and very good service. Anyone who doesn't like this place is probably looking for some trendy Manhattan baloney. —xxx

The atmosphere was cozy and romantic, the food was delicious, and the wait staff was attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends.

I've never eaten here, but the delivery food is great. The grilled beef salad (Yum Nua) is one of the best I've had in New York. They balance minty, spicy, and tangy in the manner of the best Thai food. I also like their drunken noodles with chicken, although I find that it's a little too rich with the egg that is a standard part of the recipe. I usually request drunken noodles with no eggs and it's a great dish. Order with confidence from this place.

I've probably been to this place about 20 times over the last three years and go once every week or two when I'm in new york rather than back in europe. I'll be heading over there in a few minutes actually. The atmosphere is interesting and relaxed, the staff always friendly and the food fairly standard thai and well done without being outstanding - I tend to ask for 'extra spicy' which they are happy to do and still leaves it basically moderate. The crispy duck with basil sauce is what I get if I'm feeling indulgent, otherwise the spicy basil fried rice is another favorite and I've also tried the curries I've taken friends and even my parents when they came over from england and I think everyone has enjoyed it. They also have decent cocktails. My summary would be: not a place to come out of your way to visit, but a nice option for those who live in the area.

Food was ok (more like good chinese food). Very disappointed in the service; asked for a beer each, companion got his, after reminding we wanted one each I got mine half way through the meal. Did not have a fork at the beginning of the meal, asked for a fork and got another water, finally a second try I got the fork. Worst part was the manager asked us to leave as there were other 'reservations waiting'. Mind you this was only after about 25 minutes after getting our food and directly after getting the check - terribly rude. Next time I will choose a friendlier place that allows time to spend at least a few minutes with my guest after we have finished eating.

The atmosphere is okay but the food is just not there. Bland, and to be honest the least pleasant Thai experience I ever had. On the other hand the lighting is good for a date but it is not worth suffering the food over - unless you stick to alcohol.
