The better choice

When asking locals about where eating Sea Food, first is Ganh Hao, second is Thanh Phat. But now I like Thanh Phat more. Because it very nicely service and the food is nicely done. Come here once but there will be twice and third.

I have been a regular visitor to Vung Tau and always patronise Ganh Hao for fresh seafood. As on previous visits, I taxied to Ganh Hao for lunch and was disappointed to notice lots of cars and buses parked on either side of the street as we neared the restaurant. Then, as expected, we were waved on by attendants at... More

I went to this restaurant with friends. Just a normal restaurant by the water but the foods were excellent. Just don't expect anything fancy here....come here for fresh seafood only. Price: according to my friends, cheaper than other restaurants locate at the tourist area. I didn't take care the bill so I don't know.

Do not eat at this restaurant unless you can speak Vietnamese well. Don't trust the staff and check prices by writing them down first before you order. Me and my boyfriend ate at this restaurant this evening (24/12/2014). We live and teach in Vietnam, we understand Vietnamese prices and know how to speak a good level of Vietnamese. Our hotel...

A local restaurant in a fishing village a little way from Vung Tau front beach. Mainly frequented by locals but some of the best seafood that you will get. All 100% fresh and prepared on site. Nothing fancy about this place but has a great atmosphere and the food is delicious and really well priced.

Wonky metal tables, plastic chairs, concrete floor, tin shack roof, continuous choruses of "mot, hai, ba, yo!", heady mix of screaming kids, shrieking women and shouting men ... welcome to an authentic Vietnamese dining experience. This place is essentially the local's Ganh Hao .. slightly cheaper, although not massively so, maybe only 10-15%. Allegedly (according to wife) Thanh Phat gets... More

If you just care about the food then Thanh Phat is the good choice. Fresh seafood with excellent quality is ready on the spot though the price is not quite cheap. Being packed of people at the right time for lunch or dinner.

You need to be careful when order cause they might rip you off blindly. Food was fine, but the view was really poor & the restaurant was so crowded & loud & full of smoke

Liked the fresh seafood and the preparation. Atmosphere isn't much. Rat raced through the dining area, aways appealing. Service is attentive.

We didn't understood why this place is so popular - in the evenings and especially in weekends it's full of locals, very crowdy and noisy. The food is no complain, but nothing special. Ordinary plastic chairs, average prices, menu in english, and staff that don't speak english. The only special thing is a sea view. But it's very far from... More
