I would take all of the 4 and 5 star reviews with a grain of salt. We saw the masses of people lining up for this place and after reading good reviews we decided we would head there for dinner tonight. Our entree came out...More

Our guide recommended Lanterns and having eaten in many great Vietnamese restaurants over a three week period we think this is one of the best. Great service, great food and lovely staff, we ate there twice in three days

Excellent food and very friendly staff. After the first visit we made a new reservation for next week. Again, amazed about the food and friendly people. When you're visiting Nha Trang you must go there!

The staff was friendly, but the food was nothing special! It is just to "touristy"... I would go somewhere else!

The food here is really good and the price is low. The service is nice and effective. The restaurant is quite popular so if you arrive a bit late there may be a line to get in. Highly recommended!

The ques can be out to the street but this should be enough indication that the food is nothing short of great. We have been to dinner twice and also a street food tour which was awesome. The cocktails are fab, try the mojiti and...More

We have been operating since 2008 and hold half day cooking classes for visitors to Nha Trang at a cost of $24 USD per person. It is a great experience of travelling to the local market, buying food and then preparing 3 dishes as chosen by the guests. We also provide a small recipe book at the completion of the tour, as a memento and keepsake. We are also keen to differentiate ourselves from all the other dining places in Nha Trang and give the customer a unique Vietnamese experience. One area is, we are strongly supporting 12 local orphanages. I spent 2 months travelling through Nha Trang & Vietnam & spent a lot of my time with the children at orphanages. As a result, I am trying to give back to these kids, by teaching them life skills and how the real world operates, outside of the usual visits and photo opportunity.That's where the idea for Lanterns came. We invite kids and their careers to each at least one day per month, but any time they wish to come. We encourage the schools/orphanages to allow the older kids to gain work experience at our place and meet the people who visit Vietnam first hand, in a friendly helpful environment.One thing I am strongly committed to, is making sure the kids are not exploited in any way and nothing is ever done without discussing it & getting approval from the carers involved.
