“Tranquil people watching paradise”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Lantern Town was a great stop in the middle of the old town for waits before/ during /after dress fittings. The outdoor area opens onto the river and is perfect for passing time watching locals and tourists. Good beer, cocktails and specials (we had the pomelo salad which was very good).

“Fantastic cooking class!”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Completed a cooking class at the Lantern Town restraunt. It was a highlight of my vietnam travels. Set in a relaxed atmosphere with a fabolous teacher and drinks in hand we cooked 5 amazing dishes (ask for the most popular set of recipes). It was very hands on and detailed recipes were sent out to our emails later. Highly recommended.

“Good food without MSG”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

After browsing through the City Pass guide, we came across Lantern Town restaurant indicating that they use filtered water and cook without MSG. What a perfect combination! We went for their for lunch and also came back for dinner the same night. The "Mi Quang", a noodle dish, was excellent. We also had egg rolls, a fish dish and dry beef noodle dish. They were good. The ice creams were excellent. We were fortunate to be on 12/26 which many people came out for the lantern festival that night. We sat on the second floor overlooking the below and can see the river. We were almost finished with dinner when it rained. It stopped raining by the top we finished dessert.

“Amazing food”
Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

Stopped for a local brew relaxing in their comfy chairs when I couldn't resist trying the crispy duck spring rolls- so good, so much flavour. I also tried tried the whole stuffed squid which is probably the best stuffed squid I have ever eaten. Yes the prices are a little more expensive but this fusion food was worth every dong. Nice comfy, atmosphere with friendly staff.

“Great place for cocktail-happy hour”
Reviewed January 2, 2013 via mobile

We went here for lunch and we had here a few cocktails during their happy hour (between 3pm and 7pm). Lunch was not that interesting but the cocktails in this place were rather good. Especially the Pineapple Mojito was a winner.
