Nha Trang, Tai Koo Shing, HK

When the old Vietnamese restaurant closed down and the decoration partition had the name "Nha Trang" on it, I asked Nha Trang Wanchai if that's a genuine branch. I got a fond answer "yes". So much looking forward to this new branch. Unfortunately just only a month after it's open, some scandalous news broke out that a group of people got food poisoning and it was found out the shop put some food outside the back lane of the shop. The good part is that I can come here without waiting in line since the news broke out.
After the try, I will only come here again for the beef broth noodle and the Bun (dried noodle with sweet sour fish sauce). Those are still kept at Nha Trang's standard. The cucumber was sliced too thin that it lost the original aroma. The squid is a bit too overcooked. The fish cake is so so.

this is a common problem when a big name branched out. i believe that most owners would like to continue the offer of good food to customers, but, unfortunately those monkeys in the kitchen and buffaloes in the dining hall don't.

Somehow the name of this restaurant sounds familiar.

Seen some success on expanding their business but most of them end up in the local mis-management.
SS, I have posted about this restaurant several times but the good one is still their main shop in Central, second is in Wanchai.

No wonder this sounds familiar.
I almost thought there is one in BKK.
Thank you for the clarification SEA.
