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

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

My family of three have just eaten dinner at the Same Same But Different Cafe' in Nha Trang. I chose this restaurant because of the glowing reviews on trip Advisor.

It is a very good value for money. Meals are not expensive. My girlfriend went for the pasta and i went for the beef and chips. We were both very pleased. The Sauce was delicious. The night we went they runned a promotion on Saigon beer at 8.000DNG, unbeatable. Service was good too.

Breakfast here was tasted good, I'm a very large eater and the farmers rusti was just enough. It took them a little while to bring everything out, there were 6 of us, but the coffee was pretty good and the ladies were helpful.
