We ended up at Lac Canh's after a Cyclo Tour around Nha Trang and its hot spots. We were taken here by our guide who also cooked two plate loads of succulent beef over a small charcoal BBQ. The food was excellent and so tasty straight off the BBQ. We just wished that we had found this restaurant earlier so... More

The restaurant isn't much too look at from the outside, the usual plastic chairs etc but don't let this put you off. The food was lovely, go for the 'DIY' BBQ and choose from a selection of chicken, beef, shrimp etc etc. Nice and cheap too!

food was real good but because of the smoke from the food, it takes some time to get used to. however, that can't be a reason you miss the best food of the city.

Definitely the place to eat in town. Popular with locals but also caters to English speakers. Main highlight is the charcoal braziers that are bought out and allow grilling of beef and other meats and seafood. Most people try the beef - delicious but a bit of spice. Every taxi knows where this is - only about $2 from main... More

This gem is a bit far from the main block by the beach (about a 5 minute motor bike ride from Novotel) just west of the coast line along tran phu street. The marinade for the meat and grilled veggies was pleasantly savory and slightly sweet. The wait staff were friendly and accommodating. Good came out quickly. We got a... More

I would have walked past this restaurant if I hadn't been with someone that had been there numerous times. It has the nicest food which you generally cook yourself on a table barbecue .it get very busy and noisy. But great atmosphere,

The family was a little dubious when I brought them here bit loved BBQing their own meal at the table and all agreed that the food was excellent. Great local experience and terrific value.

This restaurant is an avoidable one in Nhatrang's cuisine landscape. Everyone knows where it is. You can taste almost everything here from seafood to local specialty but the real stopper is grilled meat served on hot clay burners. Best to go there for supper. Ask taxi drivers to take you there.

I come here few times per year with my family, and if I have friends who visit Nha Trang for the first time, I'll take them here. The beef is extraordinary. Soft and juicy. Must visit in Nha Trang.
