Food for me here were great, service friendly with good English. I thought although the price were stretched a bit too much on the high side compare of what I usually paid in Nha Trang. This place is good also for breakfast. They have a great varieties of food to accommodate any taste.

The food was as good as the reviews state and there is a friendly atmosphere from the owners and staff. The prices are good for the area too. We went there a few times during our stay in Nha Trang.

This ultra clean, well run and super friendly restaurant has an eclectic menu of Western and Asian food. All the food that I've tried has been very good and reasonably priced, but for me the Thai food is reason enough to visit on a daily basis. Don't leave Nha Trang without trying the Thai mushroom soup, curries and stir fried... More

The service at Same-Same is the most friendly and conscientious that I have encountered in SE Asia. I ordered the Pad Ga Pow on the recommendation of the server and it was fantastic! Charming atmosphere and good prices. Highly recommended!

This restaurant is still clinging to it's old fame when many years ago it had a great write up in the Lonely Planet Vietnam, since then it has unfortunately gone steadily down hill! Many years ago they had a great waitress too, she worked so many hours there and was always sad at the way the nasty female owner treated... More

My boyfriend and I went there twice during our stay in Nha Trang. The restaurant is such a nice change from the sports bars and Russian restaurants in this part of town. It's quiet and relaxed. Service was very friendly (I usually get pushy or indifferent so this also made a nice change!) Food is very tasty. We had fresh... More
