“So-so food on a great beach”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

We stayed in Sea Star resort for 4 nights and hoped to have a good restaurant in place (reviews suggest that is quite OK). Unfortunately, it was a big disappointment and hardly value for money.

Most of the food was bland and boring, and more expensive than most places on the beach. There were of course dishes that were OK - deep fired squid (it is hard to spoil), lotus salad, but really nothing extraordinary.

And last - but not least - ca phe. One of the worst blends in Vietnam. Pamper yourself and go to the beach bar next to Sea Star and buy a proper glass of Vietnamese coffee.

The waiters in Sea Star are really nice and helpful. I am sure they wished to serve some better food there. And the great Sea Star beach deserves it!

“Always good food”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

Love their chicken with lemongrass and chilli, their chicken curry and fried rice. Their food is always good. Only disappointment is pancake for breakfast was unedible being thick and leathery. Also there is no ambience at night when we went.

“Always came back to this restaurant!”
Reviewed April 13, 2012

We stayed here too, so was an easy option on the first day and night. We tried other places throughout our stay but both agreed that the SeaStar was our favourite for 3 things… Price, Taste and Service.
Put simply, it has a great choice of Vietnamese food, at reasonable prices and a lovely setting. We recommend the Fresh springrolls and also the lemongrass and chilli chicken.
Even if you’re staying in another resort, it’s worth a walk along the beach to seek this out .
