Great bbq meal, and grill it yourself!

Our hotel recommended this place and I am so glad they did! You pick out what kinds of meat you want (beef, pork, heart/kidney, chicken, eel) and they bring you a coal grill. Had so much fun using the grill, despite the smoke everwhere, and the beer is cheap! The place is full of foreigners and... read more

I rarely give five stars but if you want 'authentic' (in my opinion) Vietnamese street food, then for me this ticked all the boxes. The room is crowded, smoky and hot, table cloths a bit dirty, staff barely understanding what you're saying (in English), but the food is exceptional, prices low and experience invaluable. We had bbq'd beef and prawns,... More

Lac Canh is the no frills authentic Vietnamese dining experience, best Vietnamese BBQ in Nha Trang. Super cheap, extremely quick, always fresh and very tasty. If you are expecting fine dining and silver service don't bother going as its plastic chairs, terry-toweling table cloths and prawn shells on the floor. If you are thinking of going late in the evening... More

Easily to find the restaurant,asking taxi driver or native people for showing the way. the restaurant is not to large, and the smoking grilled full fill the space, of course someone feel bad but in my opinion it's good delicious smell. Restaurants opening all day, better time to enjoy in the noon because it's not crowded and you should choose... More

This type of Vietnamese BBQ can be found in many places, but for Nha Trang, Lac Canh is the best. Hot, crowded, sticky -- authentic. Be sure to take home one of their interesting bottle openers.

We went here on our last night in Nha Trang and it was an experience we were glad we didn't miss. We ordered chicken, beef and vegetables which we barbecued at our table plus a portion of French fries and two beers each. It was great fun, really, really hot and very smoky. The food was very tasty as the... More

Next time, go with friends. The place has 2 floors. 2nd floor has better view. The staff don't speak English but their menu is in English, Chinese, Russian and Vietnamese. The BBQ with beef was so delicious.
