We had dinner at the lanterns and enjoyed the friendy and easy going atmosphere at the lanterns. The prices are moderate and reasonable, food is served in good quality and sometimes extraordinary style (e.g. chicken in a 'real' coconut) or table BBQ is also available. You can make a reservation or wait until next table is free - which can... More

This is not a trendy looking restaurant but don't let this put you off the food was amazing, I had a snapper and it was beautifully cooked. The staff are friendly and very efficient. Four of us ate at the lanterns for £30 including drinks

I went here for dinner with my boyfriend looking for some of the "recommended food to try in Nha Trang" and was delighted to find the squid stuffed with pork in tomato sauce...it was delicious. We also had the spring rolls and the seafood hot pot which was also good but in the end I think we both wished we... More

We went here tonight and had a great meal. We picked the beef hot pot for two and it was very good. Service was excellent and we would highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the area.

We went there for family dinner as it was reccommended by our hotel. The place is nice but also very touristy. They advertise authentic Viet cuisine, we thought it was more western Vietnamese though. The quality is ok considering the price. We had fish claypot, fresh springrolls and the papaya salad. Service was quick and ok, but the restrooms are... More

We ordered the beef BBQ and it was absolutely delicious. The beef was seasoned beautifully and was cooked by us at our table. Really good price, and the amount of meat was definitely enough for the two of us, together with the rice. Definitely recommend!

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.
