It is open in early morning so it's a good place for breakfast. The coffee is not good but the food and the shakes are nice.

Same Same is our favourite restaurant in Nha Trang. It might not be as popular as some of the other restaurants, but in our opinion, it certainly has the best food. Ate here on numerous occasions and were never disappointed. The staff are all very friendly and love a chat, at the same time as giving you the best service.... More

Good quality Asian food, served quickly and with a smile. All your Vietnamese favourites can be found here, together with such dishes as Pad Thai, which we greatly enjoyed. Goes nicely with Saigon beer. We noticed the presence of westerners each time we ate here, suggesting the dishes suit our palate. It is centrally located in Nha Trang, but suffers... More

Excellent local and Thai-influenced dishes. Slightly more expensive than some of the other local restaurants but with subtle differences in the dishes that make a visit worthwhile.

We tried somtam(thai papaya salad), butter grilled shrimp and rice with minced beef and cheese. None of these was actually Vietnamese food but anyway they were all good and we paid about 400000VND including drinks, which is quite cheap considering it is Nha trang.

If you are looking for a great restaurant for Thaï cuisine and for some tasty, yet cheap sandwiches, I would advise you to go there. I went to eat 4 times for lunch and I noticed the presence of regular customers, which is always a good sign. The first time, I had a delicious and perfectly sweetened Pad Thai; the... More

Me and my girlfriend (Thai) had been looking for Thai food in Vietnam for the past week but had no luck - until we found this place. The service was exceptional and the place was very clean and modern. The som tum was nice but the satay mixed meat was epic. The flavour was amazing - thinking about it now... More
