When it comes to fine dining in Da Nang, then the Apsara Restaurant stands head and shoulders above the competition. This is hands down the best dining experience you will find in Da Nang. Unlike many other upmarket restaurants, the Apsara Restaurant concentrates solely upon Vietnamese food, and does not try to provide a menu full of western dishes, cooked half as well at twice the price.
Upon entering the Apsara Restaurant you will notice that it is somewhat different to the average Vietnamese restaurant. Perfectly set tables, smart and attentive waiting staff and an attention to detail which rivals any restaurant in the western world set the Apsara Restaurant apart.
As well as traditional Vietnamese favorites, the menu also carries a selection of house specialties. The seafood is often exceptional, especially the crabs which are caught locally. The wine list is also expansive, although not as expansive as visitors from the western hemisphere may be used to.
The Apsara Restaurant also provides entertainment for diners. A small stage is tucked away in the corner, and two music shows are put on every night. Most nights also feature a dance show in between.
The Apsara Restaurant is spread across two separate floors and can seat several dozen diners. It is open for lunch from 10am until 2:30pm and then opens again in the evening for diver at 5pm until 10pm.
Everything about the Apsara Restaurant screams quality, from the décor to the cooking. This is a popular restaurant with Vietnamese business people who wish to entertain clients, and with tour operators who like to make the restaurant one of the features of their travel packages. If you are in Da Nang and your budget can stretch to it, then spoil yourself and visit the Apsara Restaurant for a real taste of luxury.
