Description: We have been operating since 2008 and hold half day cooking classes for visitors to Nha Trang. 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 went to Lanterns on our first night and it was so good we returned twice more. The staff are excellent as is the food. Great variety of food. Beers good.. If you want wine you can bring your own for a small charge.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. It was close by so we booked it. They were very accomodating taking our booking. The service was good. However the food was a bit bland. Having spent the past 2 weeks in Vietnam and eating some amazing street food, and at tasty but cheap local establishments this was a bit of a let down. The first course soup was considered too smoky for many in our group. And the curry main course was just nice. Not really tasty. The place was full of tourists, and I suspect they cater for a more simple western palette. If you want a safe place to eat this is it. The restaurant is upstairs and open air and has a nice feel about it, but was hot. A few more fans would help keep the diners cooler while they ate.

Simply overrated. One of the worst Vietnamese food (not that I cannot afford but simply over priced) we had in nha trang. Service standard wasnt too bad but we we're here for quality food and not service.
Clay pot shrimp was a joke with over cook shrimp that is so tough that it taste like a piece of frozen gum...
Avoid pls

This is a huge dining hall upstairs off the street. Good atmosphere, lovely and efficient staff. The food is top quality, well-presented, delicious. Waitresses and waiters were helpful, and the wine waiter was friendly. The bottle of Chardonnay we shared was about one-third of the price charged for a lesser wine in the supermarket near our hotel. You can also take your own wine for a very small corkage fee. We loved this restaurant and had a really enjoyable couple of hours there. I would recommend any visitors to Nha Trang make it their choice to eat at least once during their holiday.

We decided to visit cause saw the Tripadviser sticker at the entrance. Place is located on the roof and has loads of seatings, however, you can still seat and have a quiet talk without being interrupted by high noise level. Great quality of food, really fast service. You can bring your own alcohol, corkage fee involved (10k VND). The best fresh spring rolls I’ve tried in Nha Trang.
