Description: We have been operating since 2008 and hold half day cooking classes for visitors to Nha Trang at a cost of $24 USD per person. 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. We encourage the schools/orphanages to allow the older kids to gain work experience at our place and meet the people who visit Vietnam first hand, in a friendly helpful environment.One thing I am strongly committed to, is making sure the kids are not exploited in any way and nothing is ever done without discussing it & getting approval from the carers involved.

I don't get the great reviews. My boyfriend and I both found the meal dissapointing. We had the fresh rolls with prawns, the lemongrass chicken and the pancake but none of it was that good. The setting and the service is nice though.

We came to lanterns as a family of four for a simple family dinner and could not have walked away happier! My mum made a booking in the middle of the day and when we returned at 7pm they remembered her face, welcomed us and seated us immediately. The atmosphere was just lovely with the lanterns hanging over head. We... More

Our family of four (adults) went to dinner and it was fabulous. We ordered from the regular menu and the food came well presented, it was quick to arrive and very tasty. I must say that a highlight was our waitress Thao. She was an absolute delight, her English was very strong and while being constantly courteous she was engaging,... More

Lantern is a Vietnamese styled restaurant offering a large menu. I had the chicken skewers marinated in lemon grass and they were amazing. The rest of our group also thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The staff were very friendly and the service provided was quick and efficient. The layout of this restaurant is awesome hence the name lanterns. It is beautiful... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner there with my wife. We had the fish in clay pot, the chicken in coconut and the seafood pancake. All nice flavors especially the chicken in the whole coconut. Service was nice and caring. Very good value for money. Definitely recommended.

The menu was extensive, the food was lovely and plentiful and the staff were so friendly on the 2 occasions we ate dinner here. Lanterns has several projects that give back to the community which is worth supporting. Thanks particularly to Phuc who had just started at the restaurant and was very friendly and shared some of her local knowledge... More
