Much loved celebrity chef Luke Nguyen has made quite a name for himself becoming somewhat of a poster boy for Vietnamese cuisine. As a Chef, cookbook author and TV host, Luke has his finger in many pies…or maybe that should be fish sauce bowls!
Red Lantern is Luke’s restaurant, which he opened with family connections over a decade ago. It all started at the Crown Street location (which has since closed) and now continues at their Darlinghurst restaurant Red Lantern on Riley, with its attached cocktail bar, Red Lily serving Asian inspired cocktails. You should expect family style Vietnamese cuisine served in intimate French colonial Vietnam surroundings.
The a la carte menu changes regularly according to the best available produce, or you may prefer to choose the tasting menu, consisting of their favourite and signature dishes. The fresh, aromatic Vietnamese flavours are presented in family share plate style.
We think Red Lantern on Riley is an equally great spot for couples as for groups. What’s not to love?
Also good to know, takeaway is available.
