We had visited Lanterns a month ago - We had reserved the table; yet when we checked in, none acknowledged that and treated us as walk in customers - we opted for lunch buffet - the dishes have worn out - the steaks which they served on the table were average type in the first serving and when we asked...

This place is really awesome! Make the most out of the weather these days and enjoy top quality Indian / Fusion food with friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere. Great reception by the team managing this place and I wish that they keep it this way for many years to come. Go Lanterns!

This is one of the indian food restaurants that serves nice indian cuisines at a reasonable price, I recommend the branches in Rifa Views and Budaiya, they also serve buffet.

Dark and cramped inside. Buffet style brunch, not much of a selection and most of it very tasteless. Won't be going back anyway.

The new branch in riffa is not worth a value for money, the fish was not fresh and indian flat bread was soggy and hard to chew

Sitting back with a pile of great Indian food, chilled Kingfisher beer, listening to some live Indian music, a TV in the corner playing NFL, a napkin that turns into a bib ... doesn't get better than that. Maybe I made it sound a little cheap - well Lanterns looks a little classier than that. The lighting and decor make... More

Since I came to Bahrain I have heard a lot about lanterns restaurant. And its always a great relieve to have a good restaurant around that serves your preferred cuisine. When we entered the restaurant, we felt nice about the ambiance of the place. The type of clientele we saw made us comfortable. But to our disappointment, the live Indian... More
