The tables are very cramped together not alot of privacy or relaxing atmosphere. The seafood tasted like it had been frozen definitely not fresh no taste at all. We also ordered cocktails which came in the smallest glass and was a shot in the bottom of the drink not what you expect especially as they were expensive. You would be... More

I think this restaurant is good for both Western and Vietnamese people. Ambience is ok, very attentive staff, manager did good job for arrangement.(some guests have to wait out for their table). Although restaurant on the day we came was nearly full, the food came very fast, staff was around it is very convenient to request or order anything else.... More

4 of us ordered what we thought would be far too much food, but portions are fair but not huge. We couldn't fault the friendly service . Buzzing atmosphere under the skies, bbq grills on tables add to the ambiance. A fun place

I tried to go to this restaurant on my second last night in Vietnam after seeing it was the highest rated Vietnamese restaurant in Nha Trang. Upon arriving, it was obvious that it is quite popular and I was going to have to wait for a table. I decided to eat somewhere else that night but made a point of... More

We jagged a great restaurant in HCMC on our first night in Vietnam (five oysters) but since had found it hard to get anywhere near the bar set there, Lanterns matched it. Delicious food, great value, great atmosphere, great service. I'd suggest booking as it was packed when we were there, ate so much we rolled out of there.

Extremely well priced and very delicious. Had to wait a few minutes but they turn the tables over quickly. Well located in the busy night life district. Good food selection.

We were travelling throughout Vietnam & Nha Trang was the second last leg of the trip. Being quite touristy & seeming to cater to foreigners, we were seeking out good Vietnamese food and we found it at Lantern! The staff were wonderful, making sure every diner was attended to. The food was incredible so much so we came back here... More

Went there with a friend. Restaurant seems to be crowded almost all the time. The pineapplepot was good and served from a pineapple. Good prices. Staff's English skills not perfect, but able to make orders. The service at least in English wasn't superb, just basic. But for the food a recommendation!

We were recommended this place and the food didn't disappoint. It is set back from the sea front by a few streets so no view and the decor is simple. The food was lovely. We had the beef papaya salad, spring rolls, coconut chicken and beef in lemongrass and chilli. Drinks very reasonable 20k dong for a beer. It was... 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.
