Excellent restaurant! The food is delicious, especially the chicken in a coconut and the pecan chicken. The line was very long by the time we got there (6:30) so I would recommend making a reservation. The prices are only slightly higher than other less renown...More

We were lucky.....you must get there early or make a reservation, ... there is a reason the queue is so long because the food is worth waiting for,....the staff were amazing despite the queue out the door... I don't get some of the poor reviews...More

Arrived early and got a great table, by the time our meal arrived the queue was down the stairs. The food was generous and the service subtle and effective. Recommend a reservation if you don’t want to wait.

Busy restaurant with queue nut friends had booked. We were advised not to go for cook yourself at the table option. It was tasty but not large portions and with so many places to choose from we didn't return. Staff friendly and efficient.

This place was nice, but we were so disappointed they had run out of half the things we wanted. How can a Vietnamese restaurant run out of rice paper? It was nice when we arrived at 5pm but by the time we left there was...More

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.
