We ordered the beef BBQ and it was absolutely delicious. The beef was seasoned beautifully and was cooked by us at our table. Really good price, and the amount of meat was definitely enough for the two of us, together with the rice. Definitely recommend!

Based on others reviews, I decided to check it out with my girlfriend. I was delighted by my evening. The ambiance was lovely and the service was great. We ordered the seafood hot pot and loved it. I recommend this place for a great night out!!

We went for dinner in an otherwise not so good part of Vietnam, at least in our opinion.. But this place was so different, excellent staff and superb food! Try the Hot Pot, tasty and fun!

We have gone back to the Lanterns more than once as the food is brilliant, the staff are amazing, and it's so cheap for what you are getting (pretty much street food prices).

This place gets busy so if your a big group you may need to book. I went for the shrimp and it was hot and fresh, the local beer is only 18k which is a real bargain. A fair selection of food and friendly staff. We went twice in fact.

Went here, after being recommended by our hostel. Good food and good staff. Pineapple beef, and prawn hotspots were great and looked amazing. There were videos playing around the place and it looked like the owners give back to the community and disadvantaged kids. Would definitely recommend here for some lunch or dinner.

We really loved our meal at Lanterns. The food was fresh and delicious and there were many different options to choose from. I loved the decorations of the lanterns that lit up the open air roof.

I came here twice during my stay and had the chicken Vietnamese curry both times. In the evening there was a bit of a wait but totally worth it!

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.
