Had my dinner with my local Vietnamese family here on my last day in Nha Trang. I called to make a reservation for 7pm so even though the restaurant was 80% full, we were seated immediately. The restaurant has rooftop covering but it's still outdoor....More

Food and service was good. Popular place, so be early if you don't want to line here. I ate beef in pineapple shell. For me it was funny experience eat food straight fom pineapple shell. Ice cream meny were interesting and mine portion delicious.

Oh dear! We had high hopes this place would be OK, but it is a true tourist trap, the only Vietnamese people in sight were the servers!

This was easily the best ban xeo we have ever had. Service was quite good with many of the servers being able to speak English. Place is pretty busy but a must go when in nha trang

The food was good and the athmosphere as well. Second floor is always a good choice, you feel that the busy traffic is away from you, but you are still in the middle of the city life.

We read a lot of good things on Trip Advisor, but we can't match the enthusiasm shared about this restaurant. Certainly very nice staff, but the food was average, not bad.

A visit to lanterns while in nha trang is a must. The food is amazing and the staff are friendly and helpful. We went twice and I cannot fault them.

OK food and OK service. They can improve in being more hygienic, especially if a waitress pets a street cat, it'd be nice to wash their hands before handling food

A great cultural eating experience. Beautiful Vietnamese cuisine, friendly helpful staff. Worthwhile visit when in Nha Trang.

We have been operating since 2008 and hold half day cooking classes for visitors to Nha Trang. 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.
