I'm a local, so all about supporting the local food scene. I live nearby from Lans and I think it would be great if I could order a takeaway to pickup. No. Can. Do!! Either the phone isn't answered or constant busy signal. Between Trip Advisor, Telstra and their business card - no success. Three times in 5 weeks has... More

We were staying at the Cairns Discovery hotel and decided to visit Lan's after watching the Cairns Festival Parade with friends. We found the quality of food to be excellent and the staff very polite and helpful. We had no difficulty finding a table as the restaurant was about half full - it looked that way when ever we passed... More

Went here for a casual dinner and was blown away at the quality of the food. The portions are generous and plenty of variety on the menu. The green paw paw salad is the stand out dish. The mains were brought out before we had a chance to finish entrée, would of been good to have some time in between

I stayed at the Cairns Discovery hotel in January and had great experiences with Lans which is an in-house restaurant. In January the food was fantastic but service a little slow but to be expected these days. Today is the 9th of August and I have been here 10 days this time and not one day has been right! I... More

Went here for dinner with my dad and my kids and im afraid none of us were impressed at all. Had to go ask for drinks as the staff forgot to take the order, then when they came I don't know what the problem was, but the diet coke was disgusting - either not diet coke, or there had been... More

Fantastic spunky Vietnamese decor. Restaurant is all open which is perfect for Cairns tropical weather, providing a very welcoming atmosphere. There was 4 of us & we all greatly enjoyed our meals. Large portions & reasonably priced. Service was wonderful & food came out very quickly. Very highly recommended :)

Really good food, licensed or BYO. Handy to the Esplanade and very well priced. Great way to eat without the tourist prices. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Always a good meal.

Worse food ever and to top it off wanted to use the entertainment book and was told they don't accept the entertainment book?! Even though the voucher clearly says Lan's restuarant!

This restaurant is co located with Discovery Cairns, a reasonable walk from many Esplanade area hotels. Some thought has gone into the inviting décor, and you can dine inside or outside on the terrace. A back door connects with the hotel. The menu has enough options to be tempted but I noticed that many dishes featured the same three or... More
