We wanted a relatively cheap but authentic Vietnamese meal and were not disappointed. For a family of four the total bill was 900000 Dong, including beer and the food was a excellent. The menu was not particularly expensive and we had spring rolls and crispy prawns to start and a variety of mains, all of which were delicious. The vegetables... More

Had two meals here and can't fault it at all. Great food at a cheap price. Very authentic thai food. Cheap drinks but all together a great meal.

We breakfasted here as a group. Probably overwhelmed them with so many orders at once that service was a little slow. Otherwise the food was good, even western options.

Really, there is nothing outstanding about this place. Same same - not different. It's hit-and-miss on the menu. I had the schnitzel, which was quite good, but my companion had a chili cheese burger, which was pretty disgusting. Prices are reasonable, but not enough to entice us to return. Friendly staff, though. There are restaurants here that fill up with... More

Overall a good outing if you... More

Not worth going! We had garlic shrimps and lemon sauce fish. Prices are low but so is the quality of food. Nha Trang is full of inexpensive and good restaurants but this is not one of them.

Me and my friend found this place on tripadvisor and we thought to have dinner there. When we arrived the waitress gave us the menu and she came to take our order after a long waiting . We ordered 2 soups and mentioned to her that we cannot eat spicy and make sure that the soup wouldn't be spicy .... More
