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.

Nice food with lots of variety, mostly Vietnamese food but had variety for kids and burgers as well. They had home made ice cream which the big kids liked.

Reasonable prices and great service, it was a little warm but would recommend.

Thanks

Just ate at this restaurant and had to leave halfway through food as there were two cockroaches running around near our table. I get that it's a hot country and these things happen, but it starts questioning the cleanliness of the kitchen and doesn't half put you off your food.

Other than that, food was average but cheap prices. Guess you get what you pay for.

Went with a group as recommended by tour leader. Service was very quick, we were still eating our entree as they were putting mains on table this was a bit annoying. The spring rolls were plain and the dipping sauce looked like it came out of a bottle. The chicken meal in the coconut looked impressive and went down well. The clay pot was very hot and rather plain. It was moderately priced with a great clean rooftop location. Certainly wouldn't rush back.

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.
