Group Reservations

Tables of 6 or more guests are required to select one of the specially designed tasting menus. All dietary requirements and allergies can be catered for.

A $300 deposit is required to secure your booking, which is fully refunded when you dine with us. The deposit is non-refundable should you cancel within 48 hours of your booking.

Why the $300 deposit?

A cancellation fee of $300 is charged in the event that the whole group is cancelled with less than 48-hours notice. Groups who do not show up at all or cancel at the last minute affect our business in a big way. It also deprives those who have been on our wait list the chance to dine with us.

Groups of 10 or more guests are subject to a discretionary 10% gratuity for our team of friendly professionals.

For all 6.00pm and 6.30pm bookings, tables are only available for a 2-hour seating from the reservation time, and we will require the table back after this time.

Your reservation is only confirmed once you have received a CONFIRMATION NUMBER.

Red Lantern is a fully licensed restaurant - No BYO

To make any changes to your reservation please contact us as soon as possible. All reservations are required to be confirmed 24 hours prior to the date of the booking. We will endeavour to contact you, however if you have not been acknowledged please phone us directly. Red Lantern reserves the right to cancel any unconfirmed reservations.

To make a booking for a group of 6 or more guests, please contact us directly on +61 2 9698 4355 or email
