The Team

Led by Chefs Mark Jensen & Luke Nguyen, together with Pauline Nguyen, meet the team responsible for the Red Lantern experience.

Every single dish I tried from the ‘Saigon Scrumptious’ tasting menu was incredible. I’m a very fussy eater with basic tastes. I never realised why people make such a fuss of fancy restaurants. Well I was very wrong! The flavour sensations from all of these dishes was unbelievable. Every dish was absolutely 100% perfection. I very highly recommend Red Lantern on Riley Vietnamese restaurant! I thought everything was perfect. I can’t think of any way of improving. Please keep doing exactly what you are doing because your restaurant is amazing.
