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.

It can get busy so be aware if you're travelling in large groups call or drop in and book ahead. You should also try their street... read more

Very popular restaurant yet the staff ( constantly smiling) served us with wonderful efficiency especially for an extremely busy lunch time. Different staff came to chat with us at various times during our sumptuous traditional Vietnamese meal ( seven courses) The staff explained the dishes as they arrived ensured we were enjoying our food and were ever watchful of our...

The food was wonderful as all the other reviews proclaim, you won't be disappointed but what we really enjoyed was talking with several of the waitstaff. They spoke excellent english and really wanted to educate us as to what their daily lives are like and even their hopes and dreams for the future. It was very eye-opening and the reason... More

Busy location, busy restaurant but the service and staff were brilliant. Choice was amazing and quick service. Food presentation was appealing and my favourite was the chicken curry in a coconut. As a group we were all impressed and from the restaurant we were able to flick in to some great shops. Easy to find too!!!

Great spot for dinner. We ordered hot pots for 4 people (1 seafood and 1 beef)! The staff helps you through the whole process and they were delicious! Fun environment and I really loved all the hanging lanterns. Great value- well priced for a lot of food. Would definitely recommend to others.
