Lovely restaurant, very friendly and helpful staff. Food was good although it would have been good to have some kids meals on the menu as my kids didn't eat even half of their meals, they were too big. Also we struggled a little with the...More

Sorry, I ordered the coconut chicken but meat wasn’t enough. It was short of actual chicken and just a bunch of onions and bell peppers. I was hoping for more but unfortunately it was a bad experience for me unfortunately:(

We ordered one beef and one chicken pho, and they were both bland with little taste to their soup. However, we enjoyed their smoothies with ice cream. The Italian option also seemed pretty decent.

Ate here twice in our 7 day holiday. Staff are attentive and service orientated which is rare in our experience here (lots of people busy avoiding doing anything in most places.), here is different. Had spring rolls to start which were delicious, prawn Vietnamese curry...More

We have been operating since 2008 and hold half day cooking classes for visitors to Nha Trang. 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.
