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

Very nice restaurant with delightful owner (Ms Lan) and lovely staff. The cheese and mushroom omelette with banh mi bread roll is a perfect start to the day but don't leave Nha Trang without trying their Thai soups. Definitely the best Tom Yum I've tasted outside of Thailand. Highly recommended.

It was quite empty most nights when we were there. The food was good and the waitress (a lovely girl) was very attentive without being "in our face". Highly recommended.

Came here for breakfast this morning. Very basic food, pretty boring to be honest. 50cent for some butter to go with your bread? Eh? Don't think so! Ok for a cheap, quick meal.

This cafe is located near to the beach and has a good selection of Western and Thai dishes. We did not see a lot of Vietnamese dishes on the menu but overall we were happy with the choice. The staff were very friendly and spoke good English. We enjoyed our meal and would recommend the restaurant for a quick inexpensive... More

Ate here with a tour group. Not a place I would have chosen myself. I had to wade through about six pages of western food menu before I got to anything authentically Vietnamese. The Vietnamese menu was almost lost between the western menu and the Thai menu. Others around me enjoyed hamburger, steak and chips, tropical muesli and mashed potato.... More

Had a really good lunch of Thai green chicken curry and papaya salad. Needed our Thai fix and this really delivered. Lovely staff, as always in Nha Trang and the prices were very cheap.

I stopped into Same Same on a day I wasn't feeling well - too much heat and humidity (let's leave the wine out of it) eventually catches up with you. Located steps from my hotel (Golden Beach - see separate review) I was attracted to the name, which is the popular catch-phrase in Thailand, "Same Same, but Different." I was... More

All dishes are well prepared good quality fare, we tried the Thai meals to the pasta dishes and everything... More
