Description: 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.

The food here is so good that we were having lunch every single day of our stay in Nha Trang. The service is excellent and the cooking clases looked very good fun! Highly recommended.

We ate here a few times during our stay in Nha Trang. The service is quick, the food is tasty and it's really cheap. Also, try the homemade ice cream it's amazing!

I enjoyed the food at lanterns restaurant in Danang on 2 occasions and decided to eat at lanterns in Nha Trang . The back story to lanterns is inspirational and I recommend diners read about the details from their website . Unlike the restaurant in Danang being on the ground floor this restaurant is located on the first floor with an open roof . It’s spacious. Most of the wait staff speaks very good English . The menu looked comfortably familiar . I had the snapper ( wrapped in foil with lemongrass and Vietnamese herbs ) and grilled over a BBQ and my favourite Vietnamese vegetable, water spinach ( rau moung , morning glory ) simply wok tossed with garlic .
The snapper was cooked just right with the flesh moist and delicious. The water spinach was not overcooked and had the right amount of crunch , texture . I enjoyed my dinner all washed down with a cold . Price is not the cheap but fair and reasonable for the quality, taste and portion. I recommend this sister restaurant to the original lanterns in Danang .

Went here as a couple and loved it !
Staff very helpful and often checking on you :) well trained and good atmosphere

Only thing is we wish we could smoke!

DIY spring rolls were delicious just needed a way to make the actual roll more soft!

Being a chef and a waitress we had lots of fun trying everything !

One improvement could be having the staff more sectioned into table allocations In venue so guests can form a relationship with there own waiter/ waitress

If you want the upper hand in Vietnam having sections in the restaurant will really help !
Especially with getting Tips
