expression: have you ever

Today ive learned a really useful sentence pattern which works in the same way as "have you ever" in English.
Its quite simple and can apparently be used like this:


Anh         (đã) từng   đến    Nha Trang    chưa?
Subject+ đã từng + Verb + (Object) +  chưa?


Do you guys know any other variations of this, like how would i for example say
"have you(group of people) already had lunch?"

"Mọi người ăn trưa chưa?"
(Note: normally, Vietnamese dont specify lunch or dinner, we just say "ăn cơm" you listener should decide it's lunch or dinner :P)
"đã từng" -- i dont remember if we really use that phrase in casual conversation.

Oh, btw
Have you ever been to Nhatrang?
- Đi Nhatrang lần nào chưa? -- this sounds more Vietnamese :)
