I heard a local friend said that if you go to Nha Trang and do not enjoy meals at Lac Canh restaurant, it is very pity. This was why we come to this restaurant. Its special dish is Lac Canh Beef ( grilled beef with chilli sauce). It was so delicous.Besides, we enjoyed other seafood such as squid, shrimp, fish.... More

The food here is amazing and cheap as. I have never gone to the same restaurant twice whilst traveling but this one I did. Our waiter went out of his way both nights to serve us. Only downer is unless you pre ask them to chill wine it comes warm and the food comes out extremely staggered. I'd go again... More

This is kind of traditional home cook grilled beef! Spicy, hot and smokey are everything you need to know about this place! If you come here better come before 6:00pm otherwise you'll have to wait for table around 20-30 mins! The 2nd floor is really hot! Better ask for one fan next to your table to blow all the spicy...

A group of us went to this fascinating restaurant, you have to book a table, otherwise you will be disappointed. I loved the fact you buy your food raw and barbecue it yourself at the table, we had an amazing time. The place is packed and the atmosphere is great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant with a difference and... More

When all tables are full you can barely see the other end of the restaurant, but great fun cooking your own food on the charcoal BBQ provided. Very helpful owner and it must be good as it is full of locals. Worth the effort to find.

We went by the TA reviews and went here after seeing the Cham Towers of Po Nagar. The street was not well marked from the direction we were coming but we asked people on the street and finally found it. Large restaurant with lots of locals that come here for the grilling. It was hot that day and we didn’t... More

Off the main strip, you can cook your own food with the locals. It was 75% Vietnamese, 25% from the rest of the world. You sit in the tiny little plastic chairs and small tables with tablecloths that have been ridden hard and holes burned by the charcoal hibachi. The staff is very busy but they get to you as... More
