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.

Selected lanterns from TripAdvisor. Was looking for a well-rated Vietnamese restaurant that was close by. Lanterns did not disappoint. The food was so good, I almost could not stop eating. The next day, we were forced to return have some more.

I have visited few times already, very good Vietnamese authentic food, which is very tasty and freshly prepared moreover desserts are terrible. Service is so so as they have problem to understand English. Great atmosphere of busy restaurant where you need to have book in advance otherwise you might end up waiting for a table.

We visited Lanterns for lunch and dinner and went back the next day for lunch. The food was tasty and inexpensive. There is a lot of choice, you can even BBQ your own food at the table. The restaurant looked clean and tidy and the staff are friendly.

We ate at this lovely restaurant three times whilst we stayed in Nha Trang. I cannot praise this place enough, from the fantastic food to the humble staff who go out there way to make your experience wonderful. The restaurant offers a lovely range of foods I had a meal that looked like a bird nest filled with tasty meats... More

Staff were lovely, very attentive and quick! Restaurant was very busy so that's why we assumed it'd be good and it definitely was! I had fried squid in salt which was yum and my boyfriend had the crispy fried noodles which he loved! Portions were huge so couldn't finish but definitely a great meal! Everything is fresh and I saw... More
