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.

This place is worth a recommendation. The BBQ on the table is a show and tastes delicious. Beside having good food you support the effort to train young people in the restaurant business. The waiters/waitresses are young people who just left school. They are very polite, motivated and interested.

It is very good food with a lot to choose from. Service is good but sometimes a bit pushy as they like to stand and wait for you to decide. But food is great.

I went there twice and everything was at the same high standard. I also like their policy of actively helping local people in need.

Went here as a group of 6 and we all LOVED the food - I hadn't been that impressed with Vietnamese food before, but Lanterns changed that. Everything had so much flavour and they were decent sized portions too. The staff are absolutely lovely - our waitress (Dao) chatted to us for ages and had us in stitches! Such a... More

We had a lovely dinner at lanterns :) I've been a little let down with Vietnamese food so far but I was very impressed after our dinner last night. We had the beef hotpot for two and it was delicious, fun and a good value. Friendliest staff !
