Sometimes you want home cooking, but you don't want to cook at home. You crave a wholesome meal, but all you have in your kitchen is ingredients. Sound familiar? If you're feeling like this, and yearning for traditional Vietnamese cuisine with a comfortable homestyle ambiance, try top 3 Authentic Vietnamese restaurants in Nha Trang below:

  1. Ớt Hiểm
  2. Haha Cơm
  3. Chuồn Chuồn Kim


  • Address:
  1. 43 Nguyen Thi Minh Khai street, Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa (0973394991 )

  • Open time: 11am-11pm


The dishes served here range from simple and home-style meals to those that require a bit more effort, such as fried vegetables with garlic, braised meat with eggs, braised fish, peppered braised fish, and pancakes. Regardless of your preference, there's a dish for everyone at Ot Hiem Nha Trang restaurant.

Braised meat with egg - 145.000 VND

The cuisine at this place is very delicious. Braised meat with egg is a traditional dish in Vietnamese cuisine, and the braised pork belly is particularly noteworthy for its tender texture and perfectly balanced flavors. As someone who enjoys salty flavors, I often pair the meat with fish sauce for added zest. The dish is also served with pickles to further enhance its delicious taste, and I highly recommend giving it a try.

Pickles - Free
Stir-fried squash with garlic - 65.000 VND
The bill for 2 people

haaha cơm
Haha Com restaurant is known for its expertise in serving Vietnamese-style family meals for from 1 guest. In Vietnam, a family meal is typically prepared for 4-5 individuals. One unique aspect of Haha Com is that you can order by set, which allows even solo diners or groups of two to savor an authentic Vietnamese meal at an affordable price. The space is airy and clean, and the staff is friendly and attentive.   


The prices are reasonable. Diverse food menu. You can order by item or by set. The food at "Haha Com" captures the authentic taste of Vietnamese cuisine that locals enjoy on a daily basis. They offer a wide selection of dishes that are also suitable for foreigners. It's worth noting that "Haha Com" is a popular restaurant with an average standard, rather than being luxurious or low-end.  

Fried egg with minced meat 37k, sauteed vegetables with garlic 35k
Fried chicken wings with fish sauce - 39k,  Soup by day - 6k
Pineapple braised tuna - 66k, Deep fried tofu - 29k, Salted eggplant - 12k
Honey grilled chicken set - 45k

This is the complete bill for 4 people, we ordered each dish and one set. 



  • Location: 89 Hoang Hoa Tham street, Nha Trang, Khanh Hoa
  • Hours: 10:30 am - 9 pm, every day
  • Price: 100k-200k/person
Chuồn Chuồn Kim storefront: 89 Hoang Hoa Tham Street

The open concept dining room and kitchen seem to beckon me from the sidewalk with a brightly colored, yet subtly tasteful, decor. It feels like i am walking off the street right into a Vietnamese village in the countryside. Step off the sidewalk into the cozy, welcoming dining area. 

The rustic charm of the dining area

The Menu is simple but varied, including traditional appetizers, as well as pork, beef, chicken, fish, and vegetarian dishes. The food arrives in generous bowls and wicker baskets, inviting me to dig in. 


Our Recommendations

The cuisine at Chuon Chuon Kim is incredibly delectable, leaving a lasting impression on my taste buds. When I indulge in their dishes, I am immediately transported to the vibrant and savory flavors of Vietnamese cuisine. However, this unique deliciousness is not like the foods I grew up eating every day. After some contemplation, I realized that it's international taste. It comes as no surprise that this restaurant is a popular choice for foreigners who want to savor authentic Vietnamese cuisine. Therefore, I highly recommend Chuon Chuon Kim restaurant as a must-try when exploring Vietnamese food.   

Pork belly with salt and lemongrass

We tried the stir fried beef with crab claws (120k VND, $5), mixed vegetables with ground peanuts (45k, $2), and iced (cooling) tea (30k, $0.90). But the real star was the fried pork belly with salt and lemongrass (95k): The rich taste of the pork combined perfectly with the citrusy-gingery tang of the lemongrass. It’s no wonder this dish is at the top of their most recommended list! 

Steamed mixed vegetables
Stir-fried beef with crab

With a mixture of rustic charm, fresh ingredients, and wholesome yet sophisticated dishes, Chuồn Chuồn Kim will give you the home-away-from home dining experience you're looking for!


In summary, the Chuon Chuon Kim restaurant offers a diverse international flavor and is a safe option. The Haha Com is casual restaurant, but it’s not a low standard restaurant and serves authentic Vietnamese cuisine. They have a set menu available for 1 person. Personally, I find the Ot Hiem restaurant to be the most authentic in terms of home-style meals, and it has a spacious dining area. These are my personal opinions, and each restaurant has its unique features. I encourage everyone to try them and leave a comment to let me know your thoughts.
