On a busy Friday night our plane flew in late so with no time for a booking we showed up at 7pm and got told a wait for a table would be about 5 mins. Sure enough it was and the food was so worth the wait. Very cheap drinks.. coke only 18000vnd and the food was pretty cheap too.... More

We came before 6pm, so we didn't have to stay in line like those who came later.. at about 6:20 pm there are already people waiting for the table outside. Food was pretty good, nothing really special, but not disappointing. Super cheap for the quality. Service is good, but expect to have a couple of waiters behind your back who... More

We have to come 2 times, because we didnt book our table. Dont forget to do the reservation. Food is very tasty, prices reasonable and beer is cold. Highly recommended from my side. Enjoy your evening there.

Tour buses empty out at the entrance. If you have half a day for lunch and nothing better to do than suffer through the slowest service in VN then you might enjoy it here. If you like cold curry you'll love it!

Me and my boyfriend are here twice as we liked it so much! There is a queue in the evenings, so booking is advisable if you want to eat at a specific time, but you'll probably get a table within the 20 minutes, and it's definitely worth the wait. Their food is great quality, the service quick and friendly (considering... More

I have been in Nha Trang Vietnam for a week now and have eaten in this restaurant about six times. I just can't say anything bad about it other than there is usually a queue to get in. I have now started going at 18:00 or 21:00 when the rush has died down. Try the Pho it is to die... More

This was probably one of the tastiest meals we had in Vietnam. Delicious food at great prices. Not a fancy restaurant, but clean with a relaxed atmosphere, great for lunch.

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.
