My girlfriend and I had been really looking forward to some Vietnamese and having been to Nha Trang frequently we decided to try somewhere new. We arrived at around 2030 on a Friday night and were informed that the wait would be around 20 mins.
An hour and 40 mins later we decided to cut our losses now bored and so hungry we weren't willing to wait any longer. Even at that point we were told that it might be another 10 minute wait!
We've visited Nha Trang many times on a Friday night where they also have a no reservation policy but we've never waited more than 30 minutes. It seems at ChomChom they are unable to make the policy work. At no point did the manager come and apologise to us. He seemed more interested in wiping down tables than speaking to us or any of the other couples who were by now quite fed up. At the end of it all they tried to charge us for 'complimentary' prawn crackers and service! We refused to pay for either.
Summary - Unless you're prepared to go for dinner ridiculously early or wait most of the evening for food give this place a miss and head to Nha Trang on Wellington St for great food and service.
