This restaurant was recommended by the head waiter at our hotel and what a great find. Located off the sea front of Lha Trang what it lacks in size it makes up for in quality and quantity. We would really recommend a visit or if you are in Lha Trang for a few days make it your local. Saigon beer... More

Another recommendation from concierge and it does not disappoint. You can even cook your own food on the clay pot, of which my other half loved being an ex chef. Staff were extremely polite and the food is tasty and great value. Clean and well located, you just can't go wrong.

We had dinner at the restaurant one night and although it was quite crowded and their "waiting for a table" system could use some work, it was enjoyable. The food was delicious and the staff was very nice and most spoke very good English. During dinner we spoke with the manager about signing up for a cooking class they advertised... More

Me and my girlfriend went for lunch, she had the ginger and vegetable clay pot with beef and I had the Vietnamese curry. I can honestly say it's one of the nicest curry's I've had, really tasty and creamy. Prices are all very good I would defiantly recommend a visit here!

We came across this restaurant because we wanted to book a "street food walking tour" while in Nha Trang. The street food walking tour was fantastic. Great selections of Vietnamese street food. Highly recommend the Banh Can. Our tour guide (Hanh) was very friendly, knowledgable and great English. Went back to the restaurant again 2 days after for dinner. A... More

The atmosphere was wonderful and could be considered very romantic. We had the beef pho that wasn't hot enough temperature wise. We've had better soup from street vendors but it was still okay. We also had the potato wedges that were superb! They were very hot and covered in garlic and herbs making for a delicious treat. The food coming... More

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.
