We offer a Half day cooking classes for visitors to Nha Trang at a cost of $24 USD per person. It is a great experience and a must do for someone looking for variety to their trip to Nha Trang and something a little different. It involves travelling to the local market in a cyclo, a guided tour of the marketplace, where people get involved in learning about the local food and buying the ingredients for your meals. You then return to the restaurant where you prepare 3 dishes as chosen by the guests and of course enjoy eating what you have prepared.

We then made a 3 course meal which was easy to make at home and very delicious. Our chef was lovely and very helpful at all times. We were also provided with kitchen tools and... More

My boyfriend and I booked onto this with two friends and it was absolutely fantastic. Whilst slightly more expensive than others I would 100% recommend it. In the morning we were taken to the market on the taxi bikes which was so much fun. When we got to the market we were shown around and if we saw something interesting... More

We had so much fun from start to finish! Our day began with a cyclo ride to the market. Hanh showed us the various vendors we would purchase our ingredients - fruits, vegetables, fresh noodles, poultry and fish. The recipes were quite basic but delicious. There was much down time when we had arrived at our cooking location. Our cooking... More

We had a great cooking class at the Lanterns, including a trip to the market which was very interesting and fun! Food was good, and the staff was really lovely. I rated the course just four stars for two reasons: - I booked the class a few weeks ago and the team suggested we got a private class and something... More

We visited Lanterns Cooking Class in March whilst on Queen Victoria. A group of 6 of us attended this class. Robert was very helpful in the planning and was always very prompt in his emails. Unfortunately for us, the ship was later into Port and leaving early and our class was cut short as we missed the markets etc. The... More

What a fun way to spend a morning in Nha Trang! First we went to the produce/seafood/meat/poultry market (by cyclo - always an experience in Vietnam) where the locals shop to pick out all the fresh ingredients we would need for our cooking experience. Then back to the restaurant to prepare. The chef demonstrated and explained step by step, and... More
