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.

“Great Great Great !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2010

Have you known that this is the Restaurant for supporting ORPHANAGES and HOMELESS PEOPLE???

Food is good, Service is nice and the view is really beautiful. The staff are helpful and friendly. We always go there when we travel to Nhatrang. It's a wonderful place to make friends also... :)

Moreover, most of all the profit is used to HELP Vietnamese kids... So it's not only the restaurant for enjoying precious meals but also for helping others. Let's try it and give a hand to unfortunate Vietnamese people...

“The best thing in Nha Trang”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2010

This is a great little restaurant. Nice ambiance, good food and reasonably priced. I ordered the BBQ Beef which was cooked on my table by one of the waiting staff who just kept plying my plate. Would go back and eat in this restaurant for sure.

Yum!! This was one of the best places we ate in Nha Trang! We had the rice paper rolls fresh and cooked ,the chicken curry and the chicken and veg served in a coconut! The atmosphere here is great open roof with lanterns across the sky and the staff very friendly. They also do a cooking school tue, thur and sat, I really wish we did it but we ran out of time:) I think this place should be 1 or 2 on trip advisor def coming back here next year:)
