The restaurant is simple and clean, with lively music and side-by-side portraits of Ho Chi Minh and Gandhi.
Nhatrang location about over hundred kilometers away from Hanoi Vietnam.
When it comes to restaurants in Nha Trang serving international food, you are spoiled for choice, and if you want to try Russian food without having to actually venture to Russia, this might just be the place to do it; you will have no trouble finding Russian restaurants and there’s even a “Small Armenia” eatery. We admit, we don’t know much about Russian fare, but these joints seem to be extremely popular. For non-Russian or Vietnamese food, check out these excellent eats.
For your Indian food fix, head to Ganesh. You may recognise the name since there are six other locations in Vietnam travel, but we’d rank this joint as one of their best. The restaurant is simple and clean, with lively music and side-by-side portraits of Ho Chi Minh and Gandhi. The menu features north and south Indian dishes, every sort of flatbread imaginable, real paneer and generous portion sizes ideal for sharing. The amazing naan is the size of a flying saucer and meat dishes like chicken tikka masala (108,000 VND) come loaded with boneless chicken. Appetisers start at 40,000 VND, vegetable mains range from 80,000 to 90,000 VND. There’s an air-conditioned room upstairs or sweat it out on the ground level.
If you are craving meat and potatoes, head to La Casserole, a small Swiss restaurant with a menu of favourite Swiss dishes done well – get your sausage, schnitzel and schweinsfilet. Mains hover around 140,000 VND and you won’t go home hungry. We can’t imagine who would want to eat a bucket of hot cheese in Nha Trang weather but if you do, authentic Swiss cheese fondue is available and it looks and smells divine (440,000 VND for two people). The proprietor, who hails from Luzern, is welcoming, friendly and attentive.
With just six tables on a second floor terrace overlooking Hung Vuong Street, cosy Greek eatery Pita GR Restaurant is fantastic value. Grab a souvlaki (Athens-style, with french fries stuffed in the pita wrap) for only 50,000 VND. Mains like mousakas, kalamakia and large Greek salad topped with a brick of feta start at 90,000 VND. This was one of the few places where service staff asked us how our food was, and the free dessert was a most welcome touch. Not surprising, Pita GR is busy and bustling, so expect to wait for a table.
If the black and white photos of classic Italian movie stars doesn’t lure you in, the sights of happy diners chowing down on enormous thin-crust pizza probably will. Da Fernando is Nha Trang’s go-to Italian eatery and it doesn’t disappoint with its pizza, house-made pasta, ravioli, gnocchi and risotto, all hovering between 135,000 to 155,000 VND. The central location and small dining area means Da Fernando is crowded so unfortunately you may feel rushed – it’s rather disconcerting when the owner keeps pointing at your table to waiting guests as you eat your meal. It’s too bad because the food is worthy of lingering over Italian style, with many courses.
Opened in 2015, Ana Beach House is Evason Ana Mandara Resort’s stylish, classy beachfront restaurant with a simple menu of seafood, Mediterranean and Vietnamese dishes. The design and decor is worthy of the beautiful beachside setting which you can enjoy curled up on a hanging sun bed or while digging your toes into the sand. The enticing tapas are reasonably priced, with a selection of four costing 150,000 VND. After bites of warm oyster, octopus a la plancha and deep-fried scampi, choose from seafood and grilled meat mains, starting from 220,000 VND. More economical is the pizza (150,000 VND), and gluten0free dough is available.
Relaxed beach hangout by day, chic lounge by night: Sailing Club Nha Trang is a classy beachfront restaurant-lounge that maintains a relaxed, casual vibe with a breezy open terrace that abuts the sand. Clusters of low tables and chairs, bed loungers, beanbags on the beach and candlelight create an intimate setting. The place is gorgeous at night, especially when the full moon is rising over the ocean. Food here is not for those on a tight budget but for your money you do get elegantly presented meals, hearty portions and posh ingredients. A main, like braised lamb shank or oven roasted sea bass, will set you back 250,000 to 350,000 VND. Giant salads cost 185,000 VND, while fancy wraps are 145,000 VND. It also has a full Indian menu and select Vietnamese dishes. Some nights they do a beach bonfire. Things rev up and get more raucous after 21:00 when the place begins to morph into a club and the dance floor becomes packed – this is one of the few places in Nha Trang allowed to remain open late. Located near the southern end of the downtown core.
Just south is Louisiane Brewhouse with five beers on tap (a Pilsner, crystal ale, witbier, dark lager and red ale) which you can order in five sizes, including a five-litre beer tower. Enjoying a pint beachside is pleasant if you can ignore the Rick Astley on loop and the hopeless service. Waiters put in orders via walkie-talkie but trying to flag someone down is a challenge; go for the beer, skip the mediocre food. There’s live music some nights and daily beer happy hours (yes, plural). In the daytime, you can use their central swimming pool for free and hang out on sun loungers available to rent for 40,000 VND.
