Unpromising wobbly plastic tables and small plastic chairs but it's all part of the charm of this popular local hang out. Everyone gets there own charcoal barbecue and then its just a question of choosing your favourite marinated meat,seafood or vegetables to cook yourself. The beer is cold and cheap ……. a perfect venue for a group get together sharing... More

Recomendated by friends, we went here to try the BBQ beef which is the speciality that Lac Canh is famous for. Different from what we expected, the beef was hard and over spicy - more towards Asian cusine The price is also higher compared to other local restaurants which sell even better BBQ beef.

Based on the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor and the proximity of this restaurant to our hotel we decided to give it a try. The staff were not particularly friendly, and the young lady promoting San Miguel beer was visibly annoyed when we declined a bottle. Nevertheless, the service was prompt and the food was reasonably priced. We didn't find... More

I went to the restaurant with my boyfriend. When we arrived, there are about 5 other people also arrived. The restaurant was full of smock and smell. We tried to find a table and ask staff but they all ignored us. The service was very poor but may be they are famous and too over load at the time so... More

This is a typical restaurant you just don't visit as a tourist. It is local, looks a bit shabby. Plastic seats and cheap tables, nothing is painted or well kept. But... I never had such a great BBQ experience as here! You just sit down with the locals, with your own BBQ. We got many different dishes: fruits, veggies, fish,... More

Not a tourist restaurant. This is a noisy place with cheap furniture and very Vietnamese service. It's full of smoke and locals drinking cases of beer as they eat. The food is very good. If you don't speak VN, look around and see what the locals are eating. There's a ball of eel, vermicelli and mushrooms I'd recommend (don't remember... More

I really enjoyed this food, turned up at 6pm and got seated straight away. The restaurant was mainly full of locals and only a handful of tourists. Ordered 2 dishes to cook on the charcoal BBQ at our table, beef and pork marinated in chilli. The portion sizes were generous and the flavour and quality of meat was exceptional. Service... More

Poor service - Dirty restaurant - Food is acceptable !. It was suggested as a must-go restaurant in Nha Trang during my online search. However, the standard is just as a street-food restaurant. I believe that they pay a lot for pr articles !
