Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restaurant for lunch. We were seated on the second floor with a nice view of the fish boats and bridge. The staff is friendly and provide good service, though their level of english was quite poor. The menu is not fully translated in English so it was quite hard to get the full extent of the choice we had. The choice of seafood was not that great for a seafood restaurant. The sea urchin was very nice and of very good value. The steamed scallops and salted shrimps were good but not excellent. The sauce taste could be improved. Overall good value for money for those craving sea foods but does not deserve a top 20.

“Expected better”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Ok people, I went here the other night after reviews posted seemed to be good. The location is good, overlooking the water, the service was ok, not the usual friendly that you would usually get in most places in nha trang. We had rock lobster and prawns, very expensive, over $100 Aussie dollar. The prawns were good but the lobster was overcooked, BBQ style. This is why I'm giving this an average review, in my opinion, far better places to eat.

Hi Aussie053,

Thank you for coming our Nhat Phong 3 Seafood restaurant!

You were correct, the lobster is really costly in Vietnam, it's around US$80-150 per kg (depend when and where you eat it). AUD$100 is about US$91, this price is cheapest in Nha Trang beach city for lobster still alive.

I can understand you when wrote this review because some Australian travellers came to our restaurant and told that seafood in Australia is cheaper than here. They let me know some price of kind of seafood to we can compare. I think they are right.

But I think when we travel, we should try local cuisine where we've been. It's also a great thing in your trip.

I hope you will come back our restaurant to trying other seafood. You can tell our employee how to cook to making you feel good.

Have a good trip in our Vietnam!

“A real gem!”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We visited this restaurant twice just to make sure we had not been mistaken the first time, but no mistake it was truly wonderful on both occasions. The variety of live seafood is truly awesome, and the menu covers not only seafood, but exotic meats and many other items. The food was pefectly cooked and the staff are outstanding - nothing is too much trouble. Match that with a lovely view, fresh breeze on the roof terrace, decent selection of wines and fun atmosphere, and you have a seafood lovers paradise - oh and the prices are VERY reasonable. All in all a great experience.

“Awesome seafood and best value in Nha Trang city”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

I've been this seafood restaurant with my local friends. They told me that this restaurant is best in Nha Trang, fresh seafood, cheap...we can also select alive seafood in the tank. They have 4-5 tanks. My local friends also told that in Nha Trang have many seafood restaurant where will pay money for taxi driver to bring guests to their restaurant. But these place are not good and really expensive.

I think my friends is truth. Because I came to Nhat Phong 3 and tried many fresh and alive seafood, the food was really delicious. We had big surprise when get the bill, only 1,2 million VND (about $60) for 5 people. It was really cheap.

I will come back this restaurant in my next trip.

“Fantastic seafood”
Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

We decided to try the seafood at this restaurant today after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. The taxi driver tried to trick us to go to one of the seafood restaurants with scaly scales and extravagant prices, saying they only sold frozen fish at this restaurant. Luckily we saw right through him, and he reluctantly drove us to this seafood restaurant. There are three stories with sitting places, friendly and attentive waiters and a menu boasting with a large variety of different seafood amongst many other dishes. We were recommended to follow the waiter to the fish tanks, where we picked our fish and seafood. We chose two different types of snales, and a snapper grilled in aluminum foil on banana leaves. They recommended we roll the fish in rice paper with many types of fresh herbs and vegetables. The dip they recommended to dip the rolls in were too spicy for our taste, so they brought us a different one which was fantastic. The seafood was some of the best we have had in Vietnam. Lovely prepared and tasted amazing. The service was fantastic. Mostly only Vietnamese who dined here, which in my opinion, says it all. After all, who would know the best places in town better than them. Fantastic seafood at very reasonable prices!

Thank you so much for coming into our Nhat Phong 3 Seafood restaurant!

As you wrote in your review, you are correct. Actually, some taxi drivers will take travellers to other seafood restaurant (they have 2 kinds of menus: for local people and for travellers) where taxi drivers can receive money (10-30%/total bill). And then travellers will be who pay that money.

We never pay anything for taxi drivers. We buy directly seafood from fisherman. So our seafood is always fresh, still alive. The price is very reasonable.

We always welcome you to come back our restaurant to enjoy delicious and cheap seafood!!!
