Visited for dinner one night as it was handy for the hotel we were staying in. Ordered the crispy chicken with fired noodles. Very pleasant and a good sized serve. Restraunt was pleasant and clean. Service was a little slow but not outrageously so.

The food portions were not large . The prawn and pork with sweet sauce was salty, Prawns cheap quality and pork tasty but tough. The fish curry had small amount of fish and it was bony and didn't taste quality. The potato in the curry had a texture of pre frozen. The noodle soup was ordered by my wife a japanese national and noodle expert. Said it tasted like instant noodle with a taste of MSG. The white house wine at $5 tasted like poor quality cask and made me (not normally fussy) grimace. Don't be tempted by thelocation which might seem handy if you are staying in the area. I don't usually review places but this place is a no go.Outlook is poor.

We went here for the good value breakfast ($10 buffet continental, $18 for cooked plus buffet) initially, and ended up returning for easy take away, which was delicious Vietnamese fare. The restaurant has a cool, open air feel, modern and comfortable with friendly staff. A good find.

Visited recently after recommendation from friends & we weren't disappointed. Decided to skip entree's & went straight for mains, ordered two specials, the crispy chicken which was different & not what we expected however still very nice & the Rainbow Beef which was fantastic & I can still taste.
Prices were very good for Cairns & service was friendly & good, initially we were amongst the first half dozen however the Restaurant filled up very quickly & meals came out of the kitchen promptly & no-one appeared to be waiting very long.
We will certainly be back & can recommend to others who like to try new things without blowing the budget.

We have been back to Lan's a few times since my first review, most recently last Thursday for my birthday dinner with family and it was just as lovely as ever. They have improved the interior and it has a cosier feel. All the dishes were excellent but the crispy wonton are just divine and a big favourite with all my family. Highly recomend this place for a great value, delicious meal with good service, a combination that is not very common in Cairns.
