Cheap and dirty :)

The place is quite popular among the tourists in general, not only vegetarians, due to its democratic prices and the fact that it's located near Xom Moi market, close to tourist district. As it turned out, some tourists don't even fully understand what they order, and imagine omelet and "unsalted fish" among the variety of soy dishes. :)

The food is rather tasty but it's the typical Vietnamese fast-food so don't expect much diversity. I would recommend you to try "bánh canh". Here it's made from the thick wheat noodles and served with the delicious fried tofu - quite original. By the way, Bồ Đề is a typical "chay" (vegetarian) place, and you can't say that it's fully vegan. At least, if you want you can easily order cow milk as a drink. As for the other dishes, it's most likely that they are vegan, but nobody will guarantee you that, because it's unlikely that the concept of "veganism" is familiar to Vietnamese buddhists.

Bồ Đề is the dirtiest place among all the vegetarian places in Nha Trang, probably because of its large size. This is the main drawback. It isn't extraordinary event really to see a cockroach running along the wall or on your table. And if you're kind of squeamish person and you're afraid of the mere thought of finding a little bug or a black hair in your dish, you should never go to Cơm Chay Bồ Đề. :)

Pros: Cheap, Works all day, Close to tourist district
Cons: Dirty, Little variety in dishes

Visited Bo De a couple of times whilst I was in Nha Trang and it was great both times. I tried the Pho which you can either order from the menu, off of the board behind the counter or at the second table where you'll see pho ingredients laid out. There's also a canteen style area where you can choose rice with mock meats, veggies etc. I tried the steamed buns too which were filled with crisp veggies which I loved. I also loved that this place was packed out with locals no matter what time of day it was, it's clearly really popular which is no surprise as the food's tasty and it's ridiculously cheap.

A Bit Confusing, but Not Terrible

The food was far from fresh and didn't really taste special at all. There is no real practical means of ordering unless you speak Vietnamese, so I just pointed at things and hoped for the best. The locals appeared to be getting totally different options, but I guess that's just my own problem for not speaking the language. Anyway, what I did get was passable and pretty cheap, so it wasn't a loss.

Pros: l

I would like to recommend this place especially to solo budget travellers. Very good taste, wide range choice, very very cheap. One plate rice + everything you want on it is 12k vnd. Cmon that's dirty cheap:) Food was very well spiced and I didn't need to add anything to my meal. I got a soup too. I ate lunch and took out as well. You basically just point on different food that you like to have on your rice. Nice staff. No english though. Good selection of mock meat and cooked vegetable. Which is anyway more safe to eat than raw vegetable in SE Asia.

Pros: Cheap, Tasty, You Can See And Choose
Cons: Can Be Crowded With Locals, No English Spoken, Very Basic Environment

Only one vegetable available but the rest mostly imitation mocked meat. Very noisy and messy environment not good for relax and sit back for enjoying our meal.

Pros: Cheap 12000dvnd
Cons: No Selection Of Fresh Vegeables, Low Seats Uncomfortable

We tried a few of the different veg restaurants in Nha Trang but it was Bo De's huge range, lovely staff and local feel that kept us coming back for more...
Try the veg Pho, packed full of noodles with lovely herbs and soy mock meats. Or take a plate of rice and fill it with any of the wide selection of vegetables, mock meats and soy products... It is VERY reasonable, plate with rice is about 15 000d and pho 12 000d!!
The owner speaks great english and the other staff some small.. no menu but simple to order.
The best part...its right next to the markets so you can grab a coconut on route!!
Definitely try Bo De you will not be disappointed.

Pros: Just point to select what you want..., Not too far from city centre.
