Owner description: We offer a Half day cooking classes for visitors to Nha Trang at a cost of $24 USD per person. It is a great experience and a must do for someone looking for variety to their trip to Nha Trang and something a little different. It involves travelling to the local market in a cyclo, a guided tour of the marketplace, where people get involved in learning about the local food and buying the ingredients for your meals. You then return to the restaurant where you prepare 3 dishes as chosen by the guests and of course enjoy eating what you have prepared.

To start off we had a wonderful teacher called Nam who was funny and engaging with all members of the group. She was also very helpful when we informed her we were vegetarian. She made sure to get tofu for us... More

We had a great day at the Lantern Cooking class. The trip to the market was interesting and eye opening. We thoroughly enjoyed learning some basic Vietnamese dishes and enjoyed eating them even more.

The market trip was interesting although be warned that if you choose to cook with a frog it will be killed on the spot which was rather confronting. In the class 3 dishes were cooked -... More

Having read some reviews before we travelled, I booked this cooking class in advance of our visit to Nha Trang.

In the class we made fresh spring rolls, fish in a... More
