We had a ball!

We visited Lac Canh restaurant as a travel group and totally enjoyed the experience. There seem to be a restaurant on each side of Nguyen Binh Khiem and when you turn into the street you find the "main" restaurant on your left. We went to the restaurant on the right. I was surprised by reviews... read more

Navigated to this place from the Dam Market (about 10mins walk) at about 2pm for a late lunch. Food service was OK and not too bad. Staff understood some basic form of English but the food menu comes in Russian, English, Mandarin as well as Vietnamese - you just need to point. The beef, pork and squid are excellent! Do... More

This restaurant is off the beaten track and about a 15minute walk from the Sheraton hotel but worth every step. The food is sensational and cheap. Local love it They are so busy here that they have opened up a shed across the road to fit more people. It is a traditional Vietnamese style bbq that you cook yourself. Quanity... More

We were recommended this by a local that lives and works in Nha Trang. Choose your meats and BBQ them free on your table. Fantastic. Great atmosphere and full of locals. Does get very busy so try to book if you are a group. Rough around the edges but everything you need.

Ate here last year 2 times and back and decided the cubed raw beef marinated in their secret marinate ( my tastebuds suggests the marinade is oil , sugar , salt and lime juice which cures the cubed beef ). You cook the cubed beef on a charcoal fired clay brazier brought to your table. This allows you to cook... More

At first glance we wouldn't have ventured into this restaurant as it's clearly a locals haunt although tourists were clearly evident. the décor is basic but the food is great and it's a fun way to experience a Vietnamese BBQ restaurant. Highly recommended if you're in Nha Trang

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

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 locals too. As long... More
