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.

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.

We did a cooking class with Lanterns in October 2014. The class started with a trip to the market via cyclo to obtain ingredients. 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. The visit to the market was very interesting and informative, and I found it helpful going around with some one (Nam) who was able to answer any question asked. In the class we made fresh spring rolls, fish in a... More

This is a great way to have a bit of fun for a few hours and learn about local foods. The trip to the market on the cyclo was a giggle and we wouldn't have done it by ourselves. Nam who taught us today was excellent and very patient with our questions. The food we cooked was basic but a... More

We went on the food tour, Village tour and a cooking class. The food tour was really good, got to try a lot of different food and there was sufficient food. The village tour is organised by one of the staff there and was a nice touch. It wasn't one of the glammed up village tours, you do actually eat... More
