Why Tran restaurant is special ?
Apart from its beautiful white sand beaches, Da Nang is also well known for its delicious speciality dishes. Amongst local specialities, Banh trang cuon thit heo (pork and vegetables wrapped in soft rice paper) is the most popular, and the Tran restaurants are good places to try it.
Banh trang cuon thit heo, which is one of Da Nang’s three traditional culinary dishes, has made it into the list of Vietnamese specialities. It is a nutritious food with fresh ingredients - pieces of rolled belly pork, a variety of fresh vegetables and herbs, along with thin slices of cucumber, green bananas, and a dipping sauce.
The vegetables are bought from Da Lat, Hoi An and Da Nang. Furthermore, various dipping sauces, suitable for the tastes of visitors from the north, south or central regions, are also provided.
In addition to Banh trang cuon thit heo, the Tran restaurants also serve other local foods, including My Quang (Quang Noodles), Bun mam thit quay (vermicelli with roasted pork and salted fish), Banh trang dap (crushed rice paper), and Banh beo (round-cakes).
They are all becoming popular and favourite dishes with both local residents and visitors because of their special flavours and processing methods at the Tran restaurants.
Many foreign investors have recently shown interest in buying the Tran brand name for a price of 4 million USD. However, the Founding President of the Tran company, Mr Tran Thanh Tuan, affirmed that he would never want to sell his brand name because he has a strong desire to conserve the city’s speciality dish and the pride of its people.
It is said that the Tran restaurants are the best places for local people and visitors to enjoy the city’s delicious speciality dishes. They can visit the city’s Tran restaurants at 300 Hai Phong Street and 43 Do Quang Street in Thanh Khe District, as well as at 4 Le Duan Street and 28 Duy Tan Street in Hai Chau District.

Tips for you
We drove past this restaurant and got impressed by their staff uniform: bright green colour. We made decision should try their food and we were very satisfy. Restaurant has a very big ground with small lagoon and bridge. Good for kid to play around. At the time we went in they were very busy but staff approached found the table for you very quick. We order chef special roll disk: rice paper roll serves with special pork (2 sides skin). Very tasty. Even in a very buy time but food served very fast. Staff are friendly and useful, they show us how to eat our meal (this is our first time try this dish) I strongly recommend this restaurant if you visit Da nang
