Evening supper as a gathering of four. Warm and amicable administration, we requested starters and fundamental courses. Exceedingly prescribe the Vietnamese chicken curry! New vegetables, astonishing flavors, wonderfully displayed!! This eatery ought to be far busier!! Sensibly estimated for scrumptious fixings all naturally arranged.

Went to this place to eat after reading reviews on tripadvisor. It's easy to find on a main road, and the staff are really friendly/attentive. We both ordered the red Thai curry and it was amazing!! Just like what you would find in Thailand (minus the potato)!

Very kind, smiling and attentive staff. We tried Vietnamese food and a Thai curry, and it was very good. Good value for money.

I was really surprised by how nice and obviously family run this restaurant was - the food was top class and they were really attentive. The family all came out & spoke to us after we finished our meal and were having a drink – obviously it was an off night – a Monday I believe and some other restaurants... More

We visited Same but Different restaurant on two occasions whilst on holiday in Nha Trang. The food was exceptionally good, the best Viatnamese food we experienced during our two week stay. The staff were really friendly and we sampled various dishes, all were excellent value for money. Highly recommended

We wanted a change from eating Vietnamese food and saw on the reviews that they also serve Western food. Well as far as Western food goes it was pretty average.... More
