Garden setting in centre of HCMC.

I went with European and Vietnamese friends and thoroughly enjoyed the experience particularly the self cooking in table centre. One word of caution. There are 2 of these restaurants on Nam Ky Khoi street,One at No 134 and another at 135A. The numbers are close but the restaurants are a good... read more

Enjoyed everything about this restaurant. Delicious food cooked on a BBQ in the centre of the table. Great choice including small & large portions. Loved the atmosphere with the lights in the trees. However wanted to book a table for 4 for another evening but was told they didn't accept reservations for less than 6 people so we went to... More

My husband took us to Barbeque Garden last night mainly because he knows I'm obsessed with fairy lights and thought it would be a lovely setting, which it absolutely was.

An open air barbecue restaurant, all lit up with multi-coloured lights. Each long table has a series of gas-fired grills, set into the centre of the table. So you cook your own food, drink the reasonably decent beer and have a laugh. The food was fresh - no funny tummy trouble later. It doesn't set the world on fire (sorry)... More

I love fairy lights, and this place was crowded with locals, so we decided to give it a go! So glad we did, the food was fresh and we got to cook it ourselves on a funky table top bbq. They had run out of white wine (apparently - did they ever have it?) but the boys had plenty of... More

This was the only place in Vietnam where I cooked my own food on a grill. I've grilled meats in Korea and Japan and they were both deliciously wonderful! Don't try to compare that or you will be disappointed. The spices and marinate that is used in Vietnam is a little different. We did order a Combo 5 plate which... More

Place looked quite cool from the outside and layout was good, with outdoor dining for all. Gas fired bbq in centre of each table was a new experience for us and made for good fun and great tasting beef.
