We went here off the back of all the good reviews.. was so gutted I wasn't feeling 100% when we visited Lanterns. We'd headed there one night earlier, but like many other reviews there was a line so we popped back for a late lunch....More

Always a queue every night for this place, I believe it is moving location to expand and cater for the flow of people wanting to eat here. Food was great, atmosphere was great.

We walked past this restaurant a few days earlier and saw a queue out front and made sure we booked before dining, which was a good idea. We got there 30 minutes early and our table was waiting. Any non bookings had to wait 20-30...More

Like many others have said this is a "must" on your visit to Nha Trang. An open air restaurant serving very original dishes. The shrimp in carmelised onions is divine along with the chicken served in a cut out pineapple and the coconut chicken served...More

Run by an Aussie expatriate. I tip my hat to what he has done for the Vietnamese homeless kids. The food was amazing and the service by some of these young boys and girls was great. The only tip is to book ahead. This place...More

If you book in advance you MUST be there on time otherwise they give your table to those waiting in line outside. We didn't book, only had to wait for about 25mins on the street. Owners don't take any crap from rude customers and tell...More

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.
