thuy duong restaurant nha trang vietnamThuy Duong offers Vietnamese dishes. The location is absolutelly perfect, you can see from there the whole Nha Trang bay. The restaurant itself is also beautiful, it has a unique design and impressive garden around. You can also use Wifi there.

Just one negative thing I can write here about this restaurant. Waiters working there seem to be lazy and ignorants. I was sitting there for over 10 minutes and nobody even bothered to give me menu. They saw me, looked at me, but still ignored. I waved my hand many times asking to come, and still nothing. Finally one waitress was close to me and I asked her for menu. Then, the same problem to order anything (another 10 min waiting) and of course one more time 10 minutes more to pay the bill. So together 30 min waiting and 10 min of eating :( Maybe I had bad luck that day, but it should never happen anyway.
