Spent a week in Nha Trang visiting a mate, this cafe was local. We had breakfast here every day, the omeletes are terrific, eggs and roesti was tasty, I had the museli and fruit one morning, that was good too! I saw no evidence of the "nasty, vindictive stereotypical Asian woman", and certainly didn't even see her "broken man" of... More

The staff were always happy & attentive! Good food but the portions were too small. Less cheap salad and more meat & rice!

My friends and I often meet there either for breakfast or supper. A friend told me about it 2 years ago. Special breakfast includes roesti potatoes. And their Thai som tam, pad thai, and tom yam soup are my favorite item. I tried the vegetarian curry and found it very nutritious and tasty. The owner offers cooking classes to boot.

Consistently excellent food at reasonable prices. Has to be one of the best run restaurants in Nha Trang with a delightful owner and friendly staff. They serve good Western food but, for me, the Thai food is what brings me in on a daily basis when I visit Nha Trang. Outstanding Thai curries and soups - as good as any... More

Very overrated! Average food and unfriendly atmosphere involving the separated owners, her a very nasty vindictive type and him a sad broken man!.( A shadow of his former self!) Just chasing $$ now and relying on a past fame from a mention in an old Lonely Planet! Pricey food and false smiles from owners (always asking for a favour with... More

We came here as part of a day tour. Our meal was excellent. The service was perfect. Everything was very clean. It was a nice authentic vietnamese lunch experience. The owners are involved and very nice.

The food here is really good. But I think it's a bit expensive compered to other restaurants with the "same" kind of food.
