Highly recommended. This is the 2nd time we have been to this restaurant during a three day trip in Nha Trang. It is located at the busy food street area and a little difficult to spot as the sign is partly covered by the front tree. The restaurant is decorated with lanterns and having a traditional look with some Cham theme which makes it very cosy and romantic. Even though this is not really high season but the place is full of people until 22:00. Customers queue up in the front from time to time. The staff is quick and witty. Look like they have 4 waitresses for a 60 seat restaurant but they can always serve you without delay. The menu is well organized with Lanterns dishes and other Southern traditional cuisine from beef, chicken, fish to veg. The food is very tasty and the amount is just right not too big nor small. We enjoy every single bit. Recommend the curry (shrimp, or chicken), ginger chicken, pineapple boat, or grill fish. Drink list carries a wide range of local beer, regular cocktails or a nice glass of wine. Would definitely come back to try the beef rolled in Lalot leaf and the hot pot.
