Red Lantern Sydney

As the second Red Lantern incarnation to hit Sydney, Red Lantern Sydney on Riley suffers no 'sophomore album' blues or unfulfilled expectations. In fact, Red Lantern on Riley continues to bring to life the story of the Nguyen family, with a menu full of vibrant flavours and Vietnamese share plates, and a restaurant full of effortless cool and a quirky sense of self.Red Lantern on Riley is the brainchild of a young, family team, and the family inspiration soon becomes increasingly clear; not just because share plates are so conducive to good times and shared laughter. The Nguyen (Luke and Pauline, for those of you playing at home) family’s personality is apparent throughout the space, which is unsurprising given Red Lantern’s birth as a family memoir and cookbook.Literary victories (and television series) aside, Red Lantern on Riley is as immensely popular as it is for a reason - it’s flippin’ tasty. With Luke, and Mark Jensen at the helm, it’s unsurprising that the dishes on offer within the sophisticated French Colonial Vietnam styled restaurant are so good. The flavours are vibrant, with only the freshest local produce being used.As a function venue, Red Lantern on Riley takes reservations for groups, or the entire venue can be utilised. For those in need of a larger space however, Red Lantern on Riley can be teamed with next door’s Red Lily Private Dining Room.Red Lantern on Riley is found, somewhat bafflingly, on Riley Street. Near the Williams Street intersection in Darlinghurst, Red Lantern on Riley is near Sandringham Gardens, is near all the tourist favourites, and is within a bustling hub of drinking and dining. The restaurant is a short walk from Museum Station, with plenty of buses around also.
