Food is good but the prices where high. Nothing to compare with street food (if you now the places).

A tourist hot spot, that has a good selection of typical-westernized Vietnamese meals. Maybe good for someone that’s not that adventurous, but to be honest half the meals felt way too western and barely Vietnamese. Spice level was at an all time low. Would not go here if you want to eat real Vietnamese food and be adventurous .

Read that they got busy at 18:30, showed up at 18:30 and there was quite the line. We decided to come back the next day. Next day we arrived just before 18. No line. We ordered drinks (mojito for me, beer for my man). They forgot the mojito. When they did bring it, i suspect there was very little rum... More

Fantastic hot pot of pork and a nice stuffed squid dish made for a fantastic dinner. The taste of the food is wonderful. The service was pretty decent (no one came by to offer me a second beer). The main issue here is without a dedicated hostess those without reservations are stuck on the narrow sidewalk in an awkward and... More

Fantastic food, great selection for vegans, vegetarians and carnivores. Also they feed the homeless at lunchtime, yeah for a business that has done well sharing their hard work and luck.

Good food, breakfast is usually breakfast. And it was good. We walked by later that evening and probably 20 waiting outside to get in so if you're going for dinner, go early or reserve a table.

We followed Trip Advisor recommendations and ate at Lanterns. My first TA disappointment. The food was good . Not exceptional but certainly good and fairly priced. The disappointment came in the chaotic service which turned into no service . Finally a manager came to our table to try to sort out the mess. End result, 3!of us received what we... More

Lanterns is probably the best restaurant from located in the city tourist quarters. Food is good, but waiting time is killing.

A solid 4 rating. No locals here. That may mean it's not authentic Vietnamese. It could also mean that, cheap as it is, the locals know where to get it cheaper. In any case, we loved it. Great atmosphere. Service was fine, not slow, not overly fast. But hey we're on vacation, right? What's the rush? We had the Vietnamese... More

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.
