Rough and delicious!

Perfect BBQ spot. More locals than tourists. After a while you ' ll get used to the smoke in your eyes and the additional heat produced by the table grill. We loved the spot and went there twice.

Originally a small and successful restaurant, this has now become a victim of their own success. While the food is still good and tasty, the service lacks tenfold. Getting a table is absolutely ridiculous as you could talk to 4 different people and 4 different answers. The fact that they clean the tables by putting a large amount of garbage... More

We went there to enjoy the dinner here after we received some recommendation. The first impression was not so good, we were not welcomed by staff because we need to ask for seats when no staff available. The food prices were quite high for local people. We dont like staff of this restaurant. When we see it was nothing really... More

As everyone has already said in their reviews,; this is a local restaurant so it's best to keep that in mind when coming here. The tables and decor are very simple, yes that's absolutely true. That aside, dining here was a great experience. It was very similar to Korean BBQ which is probably more popular in the west, though it... More

If in Nha Trang then you simply must have at least one visit to Lac Canh. This is a very busy place, so you may have to wait for a table.Food is fantastic and the atmosphere is something else. We went back for another night , it was that good.

We got here at around 08:00PM and after meaningless effort trying to ask the staff if there is any table left, we wandered through all the floors covered in thick smoke from grilling. We finally found a vacant table and again, tried to order food but no one even paid attention! Too upset, we decided to leave the restaurant immediately.... More

Our family came here and ordered so much food and stuffed ourselves and only paid about $45 usd for 6. We ordered lots of different meats that you can Bbq yourself on the charcoal grill they provided to eat table. This was a good change from all the typical Vietnamese cuisine we had. This place was packed with locals, so... More

First meal in Nha Trang. Very nice. We got there at 12 noon and it was just starting to fill up. Kids loved cooking there own meat but be careful with little ones as the BBQs are hot! Our 6 and 8 year olds loved it.

Great barbecue on charcoal done by yourself. Love the taste of the marinate sauce. We ate there twice during our trip. Very cheap and super tasty. Better to go for dinner, as it is less hot. Try to go at 6pm. By 7pm it will be all full house. Favorite is squid and eel.
