    Pearl Sea Restaurant: High End Seafood for Locals Off the Beaten Path

    by m_guilfoile Written Jul 31, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wow this place was a find and totally off the beaten path. This is where the local communist party generals hang-out and the rich and famous of nha trang (yes they exist). The restaurant is a taxi ride from downtown nha trang. Marylou and I had scooters so we biked it there. The restaurant is right on the ocean past Hon Mot about 30 mins from Nha Trang. It is the last restaurant in the area in the middle of nowhere!

    The seafood is so fresh. You can choose what you like from the fish tanks.

    Local were surprised to see tourists but so friendly. We went twice in 1 week!

    Favorite Dish: Fresh sea urchin eaten raw

    Lac Canh: Best Chao Tom this side of....anywhere!

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lac Cahn is a very well known restaurant near the heart of Nha Trang. It's tucked away on a side street a few clocks from the Nha Trang market. They serve a variety of seafood and meat dishes, and the quality and consistency are excellent.

    Favorite Dish: My favorite is Chao Tom (shrimp on sugarcane), but we also had excellent Kho Ga (fish in clay pot) and canh chua (sour soup). Everything was quite good...

    This place is sits on edge of the beach. The setting is idyllic, beautiful view, nice breeze, excellent food, great service. There are beach chairs, you can get a massage, have a drink or a full meal up in the restaurant area. You will not be bothered here by vendors, the staff keeps them moving along.

    Favorite Dish: Samosas and Chicken Curry

    Lanterns Restaurant

    I came across this restaurant one evening and was not disappointed. This seems to be a popular choice amongst tourists and when tasting the food it is very easy to understand why.

    The menu is comprehensive and for me as a vegetarian I was pleasantly surprised by the range of dishes that I could choose from. It was the same for those who wanted to go down the choice of meat or fish.

    Service is efficient and the staff are very welcoming and friendly and the staff will answer questions about the dishes and are also prepared to make modifications to dishes (an example was that I did not want one particular dish cooked with oyster sauce so they used soya sauce instead).

    For those who wish to learn more about Vietnamese cookery, you can sign up to a mornings cookery class. The restaurant also operates a "soup kitchen" for local people in need of a meal and they also do a great deal of other charitable works to support the local community. The restaurant also does half day tours to see the more realistic side of Nha Trang including visiting the communities where their staff come from. Towards the rear of the restaurant they also have jewellery and clothing that is locally made for sale.

    Favorite Dish: I really enjoyed the mushrooms in lemon grass which has a lovely spicy kick to the dish! Another dish that I found to be really tasty was the sautéed vegetables with tofu.

    Good Morning Vietnam: Great Pizzas

    Good Morning Vietnam Restaurant

    This Italian restaurant really does serve a good pizza. Plenty of variety, they also serve a range of pasta and salads as well as some Vietnamese dishes. The ground floor allows you to watch the world go by or you can choose to go upstairs. I opted for downstairs and watched the chef cook my vegetable pizza.

    They also have a branch in Hoi An.

    Favorite Dish: Large variety of pizzas to choose from. I opted for the mixed vegetable pizza which was very tasty.

    I ate at this restaurant in April, 2008. I found it to be very relaxed, quiet, with excellent service. Prices were reasonable, food was very good. A very pleasant setting for dinner.

    Favorite Dish: I had a set menu meal for $4USD. This included an appetizer of spring rolls/sauce, soup, main course of fish/shrimp w/vegetables and steamed rice, and desert. There were various set menu meals to choose from as well as a normal menu.
    Also, 2 BGI beers for 14000 dong (about 85 cents, USD) from 5:30pm - 8:30pm.

    Truc Linh 1: Good food but...

    by bpwarne Updated May 22, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place always had quite a crowd in it whenever I passed by so I decided to give it a try one afternoon. Pleasant enough atmosphere with streetside outdoor dining. Food was very good. Problem was, I got quite sick with diaherra within about 2 hours after eating there.
    Hard to give a good review under such circumstances.

    Favorite Dish: I had some spring rolls and some stirr fried veggies w/rice.

    Breakfast in Nha Trang

    by NeverGrowOld Written Apr 20, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you stay in big hotels and the room rate is included breakfast, go for it. But if you don't pay for breakfast in hotels, don't miss a chance to try special breakfast in some local restaurants in Nha Trang. Here is the list for your reference:

    1. Bun ca quan Min (Min restaurant, specializes on rice vermicelli served with fish, fried fish pie, steamed fish pie, jelly fish). Less than US$1/bowl. Breakfast only
    Direction: at Bach Dang street, right at the corner of Bach Dang street and Nguyen Thien Thuat street.

    2. Bun bo Hoang Hoa Tham, a restaurant located at Hoang Hoa Tham street, selling rice vermicelli (big stem) with beef. US$1/bowl. You won't feel sorry to come there for a bowl, or 2 :-) Breafast only

    3. Pho Hong (Hong restaurant, selling Nha Trang noodle from early morning till midnight). US$1/bowl
    Direction: it's right at the corner of Le Thanh Ton - To Hien Thanh. Very easy to find.

    4. There are a lot more. I will update when I have time ok :-D

    El Coyote: El Coyote-More than Authentic Mexican

    by martensd Written Mar 25, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After a couple weeks in Vietnam, I had a taste for something different so decided on El Coyote Mexican Food, located at 78/16 Tue Tinh St.
    As we approached we saw they had a little fresh seafood cart with some really weird looking fish and... glory be....BUGS!!! Common to Australia as the Balmain or Moreton Bay bugs. They look like their name implies, Giant ugly bugs. But that is where it ends because the tail of these creatures is fantastic. Sweeter that lobster and crab in my opinion. So we gourged on the little "buggers" (Pun intended). They came with a really nice sauce of cream butter and lime, created by the owner/Chef Andre. Truly wonderful. And of course I did not forget the mexican food. My wife had pork ribs done just right and I had the tacos and chicken wings.
    Washing it down with a Tiger beer, I really loved the Tiger Glass and asked if I could buy it, but Andre's wife Lan, told us they are not for sale.
    To our surprise, at the end of our meal, we were presented with the glass for free. The end to a perfect meal!!!
    Not only was the food wonderful, but the terrific owners of El Coyote make eating there a memorable experience.

    Favorite Dish: BUGS!!!! Not well known in this area and difficult to come by, this seafood delicasy is a must try
    tacos- small tacos done right

    Self BBQ Restaurants: So many Restaurants ....so little time

    by martensd Written Mar 20, 2012

    My wife and I have been to Nha Trang six times. Every time, we see big changes in Nha Trang. The growth is alarming to say the least. But, that said, you will have so many restaurants to choose from, it boggles the mind.
    We decided to compare three BBQ Grill restaurants. We were hoping four four, but unfortunately, Truc Linh no longer does the self grill BBQ. We really like them but they say now it is too dangerous (??) Must be owned by a lawyer...LOL.
    Anyway first stop was the New Guava Restaurant on Nguyen Thien Thuat St.
    They have a roof top garden restaurant to the BBQ. Really nice. Had beef which is sliced thin, vegetables, we not aq big selection, squid was good and shrimp which were small.
    The hostesses were not very attentive but overall not a bad experience.

    Next we went to the Grill Garden on the same street as Guava.
    We had high hopes as the place was in a nice looking garden setting. But we were a little disappointed. Again we had the beef, squid and vegetables. No marinades at all, the food was rather bland, vegetables were forgetable. The staff there want to grill the food for you, so that can either be good or bad depending on if you like someone standing over you cooking while you attempt to enjoy the evening. We did not, so we sent her on her way and grilled ourself. But at least you have a choice.
    The last was Lac Canh on Nguyen Binh Khiem St. It is away from the hustle and bustle of the city proper in a bit of a run down area.
    This was our favorite and by the crowds we are not alone.
    All of the BBQ items are marinated, but not to a point of overdoing it. The beef is in cubes so it stays moist better. My wife really liked the Pork ribs. The squid and chicken were also nice large slices that held up well on the grill Shrimp were the largest of the three places visited.. The vegetables had the largest selection of the three we visited.
    The staff are a bit flaky, they are playing around too much with each other, but are attentive to your needs.
    So of the three, Lac Canh, then Guava then Grill Garden are our picks.
    The Grill Garden has great potential but needs improvement in the back of the house.

    Favorite Dish: Lac Canh- the vegetables have a great selection. Shrimp are very BIG.

    Guava- Squid was nice

    Garden Grill- No real momorable favorites. All OK, just not up to par with the others.

    Salinas Restaurant: High Expectations...not met

    by martensd Written Mar 20, 2012

    Walking down Tran Phu on the southern end near all the mini hotels, we came across the Salinas Restaurant.
    The place looked terrific, very clean and new looking, wide open veranda style seating as well as inside air-con.
    They had a very colorful brouchure depicting many dishes that looked fantastic. The menu was large with a variety of items from seafood, to steak to Vietnamese and Italian. They also do breakfast.
    We decided to go that evening. We sat upstairs overlooking Tran Phu St. The hostess was very attentive.
    We decided to get soups first. My wife got crab aspargus and pork skin soup, I the Goulash along with garlic bread.
    Her soup arrived, it was very good....my soup would come later...MUCH later.....the bread arrived...no soup...we asked ....made from scratch....takes time....OK....finally...it came...and....
    I was disappointed. Tasted like no goulash I ever had or made, more like beef soup in broth.

    So we moved on to order the entrees, we wanted the lobster, fried in garlic butter. It sounded good, it only cost 150,000dong, yeah, lets get that and chicken wings fried in garlic butter also.

    Oh wait...the hostess tells us, that dish is very small, made from DEAD lobsters...but if we want a whole dead lobster we can get that for 1.5 MILLION dong.....or even better a LIVE lobster for 2.5MILLION Dong.
    We finished our drinks and LEFT!!! Felt a little bad for the hostess...not her fault.

    We left sad because we really had such high hopes for the restaurant. Maybe our expectations were too high....maybe if we ordered something a little less "special"....maybe breakfast is better....maybe....oh forget it....why take another chance.

    Favorite Dish: The crab soup was nice, the Goulash was very disappointing...never got to try anything else

    Louisiane: Louisiane -Still a Mainstay

    by martensd Written Mar 20, 2012

    For seven years we have been going to Louisiane Brewhouse (even before it was a brewhouse).
    We have always felt welcomed and this has not changed, even though the owner has.
    The new owner to my understanding is the same as the Sailing Club.

    That worried us a bit because we have stopped going to the Sailing Club when they started charging entry fees and as we were told on our last trip....150,000 dong to get in and
    NO SEATING!!
    Really....I mean we were dressed to the tens, we wanted to eat...we SPEND MONEY!!
    But it does not matter...backpacker or affluent....pay the money and stand up.
    Be careful management, someday someone will build a place that does not take advantage or a least screens people better.

    But to our delight, the Louisiane has not changed too much. Food is still good (albiet not cheap)
    My wife loves the grilled squid with garlic on the sushi menu. Me, I have always liked their pizzas.
    They have a passionfruit beer that was really good.
    We also had potato wedges with sour cream that were very good, as was the crab soup. They also had some orange rind dipped in chocolate in the pastry section that was wonderful.

    We also have no complaints (well maybe a little one) about the staff. We always seem to meet and become friends with the managers. This year is no exception. They are always fantastic, friendly and helpful.
    So when our little problem happened and we mentioned it to our new friend the next day, she immediately took action.
    (The previous day, we had wanted to change a 100,000 dong bill for smaller bills in order to leave a tip.
    The girl at the register absolutely refused to make change for my wife (the CUSTOMER) nor for the waitress (A FELLOW EMPLOYEE))
    Needless to say the girls behind the bar all indicated that they knew nothing (of course) about the incident. when questioned by the manager. I am sure the manager will be following up though and from her conversation with the staff, I doubt it will happen again.

    Anyway, bottom line, Louisiane still provides consistantly good food in a great atmosphere.
    Plus the added feature of having a beach and pool at your disposal for patronizing the restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: Grilled garlic squid
    Pizza
    Passionfruit beer

    Ganesh Indian Restaurant: Great quality and good value

    by CEP1863 Written Nov 1, 2013
    Ganesh Indian Restaurant

    I had walked past this restaurant during the daytime and decided to give it a whirl. When I first went in, the place looked to be empty but there is an upstairs dining area which is air-conditioned and this was busy. Staff were attentive and helpful and welcomed me with an ice cold face towel with which to refresh myself.

    The menu was extensive and there was plenty of vegetarian choice. In the end I opted for bhajis as a starter and tarka dal with a naan bread for my main course. Portions are generous in size.
