We were glad we made a booking at Lanterns via email (responded within minutes) because it was a rainy evening and very busy. Excellent food, great service. Toilets were a bit grotty and being repaired while we were there, possibly not the best time. Also people trying to get out of the rain where waiting close to tables which was... More

The restaurant appears at the higher end of TripAdvisor and in various local papers/maps, so it is a very well-known place. The place is nicely decorated, it is clean and you get good value dishes. Overall a place to go and eat if you spend a couple of days in Nha Trang.

We went here following trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed at all. We lined up for 50 min on a Saturday night due to a large group of people..they were very apologetic for the wait. The wait was worth it, excellent service and delicious food. So good in fact we returned for lunch the next day. Being a lazy... More

Found this place through the Lonely Planet book and here TripAdvisor. This place did not disappoint. I got the pork clay pot and my boyfriend got the pineapple boat. The food was delicious but for me, the pork claypot was sweet and had a lot of meat which didn't really help with a small bowl of rice. When we got... More

Really good restaurant with delicious food :) We arrived slightly earlier for dinner, luckily, because a queue quickly formed outside. The food is really good, with a selection of Vietnamese or Western cuisine, and both the food and the beer is well priced. The restaurant itself if very pretty with lanterns and beautiful lighting- lovely for couples, but also suitable... More

Had lunch at Lanterns and throughly enjoyed our meal. We ordered the Water Spinach and a egg fried rice which were both delicious! Service was friendly and quick. The restaurant does get busy and is packed most nights so plan your visit. Seriously consider doing one of their tours on offer! I cannot recommend enough! We went on the Discovery... More

We went here for lunch on two different days. We enjoyed the food which was pretty consistent and staff were friendly and spoke English. Place felt nice and clean. The price is alright by western standards. Would recommend.

Thank Tom L

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.
