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

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
