Food and restaurants

Are you looking for somewhere special to go this weekend? Do you want to try something new? Check out one of these hot new restaurants.

Last Days of the Raj 

A centrally located Indian restaurant, perfect for eating before or after the cinema or a show. In summer enjoy your meal in the beautiful garden. The most popular dishes are lamb and chicken cooked with mild, medium or hot spices. For brave customers there is extra hot!

A Taste of Tuscany

Whether you’d like a great value-for-money lunch or a relaxed evening meal in stylish surroundings, this is the place for you. The chefs have all been trained in Italy and they make both traditional and contemporary dishes. We recommend the pasta and seafood.

Your Local Caff

Remember when cafés served full English breakfasts – sausages, beans, fried bread, bacon and eggs – with a strong cup of tea? Well, this place still does and you can have your breakfast at any time you like during the day while you listen to your favourite tunes from the 1980s. 

The Lemon Tree

This pretty restaurant serves healthy food that’s tasty too. Come in for a vegetarian snack at lunchtime or a great fruit smoothie or a cappuccino and a delicious piece of cake in the afternoon. Food is bought from local producers whenever possible.

Cheesy Bites

A restaurant that only serves cheese, but hundreds of cheeses from many countries and in lots of different forms. They serve reasonably priced lunches but dinner can be expensive. Lovely food and a very elegant dining room, looking onto an amazing flower garden.

Fast Best

Fast food doesn’t have to be junk food, as this café proves. Do you fancy a really good hamburger made with the best ingredients, or old-fashioned fish and chips fried to perfection, all on the table in super-quick time? Speed and quality are important here, and the prices aren’t bad either.

The Chocolate Box

The owner of this small café used to cook all kinds of food, but then she realised she preferred desserts to anything else. If you want meat or fish, don’t come here. They only do desserts! Lots of different kinds of sweets. Chocolate lovers will be excited by the range of chocolate cakes.

Musical Chairs

Have you noticed how music improves the taste of your food? This new restaurant has different types of live music every night except Sundays, and excellent food to go with it. Great fish dishes, steak and pizza. Monday is classic rock night, so see you there!


Which of these restaurants would you choose to go to? Why?

I have tried lots of kinds of food, but I found myself love the fresh taste of vegetables and fruit the best. If I have to choose one restaurant, it would be The Lemon Tree for sure. Although I am not a vegetarian but I think this one is a good choice for people who want to have a healthy and tasty meal.

Submitted by mary_nguyen on Thu, 09/19/2019 - 16:00

In my opinion, I will choose The Lemon tree, because all members in my family are vegetarians. Besides, eating vegetables and reducing meat in our meal are good for our health. We can also protect the animals from being killed. I hope that my family and I could try the food and also the great fruit smoothie in this restaurant.

My favorite food is dessert, so sometimes I go out with my friends to eat. The best place that I go to eat a lot is El.tee coffee in Nha Trang where is sold many kind of dessert like cakes, plan, jelly, milk tea...If you have a chance go to Nha Trang, El.tee is the best choice for eating and relaxing

The article is very good because it not only presents the names of the restaurants, but also the quality it has.

In my opinion, I would choose A Taste of Tuscany.Because it gives you an excellent lunch, on the other hand, it has the best chefs who have received training in Italy, and finally because I like pasta.

Submitted by Brandon on Tue, 08/27/2019 - 13:22

I agree with you, but I wouldn't go and taste the pasta, but the dishes of seafood. Because I need "a great value-for-money lunch".

I don´t usually eat a lot of sweets, but I would definitely go to The Chocolate Box!

Submitted by parsasoroori on Mon, 01/21/2019 - 10:02

Although I would rather healthy food, but I would choose the fast best for a delicious cheesy hamburger and then take a car to The Chocolate Box for a delicious dark chocolate.

Submitted by benjamin on Sat, 09/01/2018 - 12:38

the text describes the restaurant. He talks about the different dishes the cooks make, the types of foods that can be found and some of the dishes the patrons made before making the dishes or desserts they make now. I would like to go at The chocolate box because I love dessert.
