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

Heard about this place from a friend who thought it was great! I am now a big fan. If you are up in the Kuranda hills sometime make sure you check it out. The green paw paw salad is Amazing!

We loved the food so much we dined here four out of five nights. Even though we were close to the restaurant hub, the food was divine.
