Very Tasty grilled Beef & Fresh seafood BBQ

Very crowed and noisy with many locals and we loved the beef, the way they marinated was so tasty and they cooked right on your table Cold beer and reasonable price even It was hot with no A/c room I recommend this restaurant

This isn't the best restaurant you'll ever eat in but it's a lot of fun and frequented by a large number of locals - always a good sign for me. It's DIY BBQ, raw meats and fish brought to the table with charcoal burners for you to cook your meal on. Warning: everything is quite spicy, and there is a... More

a very smoky place. make sure you have enough fresh air. i was recommended this place and tried out a few times. grilled beef on charcoal is their signature. but disappointed with their other dishes like stir-fried noodles, fried rice & service.

We 'discovered' Lac Canh as it was recommended in the National Geographic Traveler Vietnam Guidebook, and we had an excellent dinner there- the marinated meats and seafood we ordered were so good, in fact, that we kept ordering interesting things to grill on the little charcoal brazier on our table! We ordered a bottle of Vietnamese Dalat white wine, too,... More

Good menu, very fair prices and nice atmosphere. Heaps of locals and the odd traveler when I was there for dinner. The BBQ is made by yourself right on your table, so be prepared for a bit of smoke. Sitting upstairs offers a nice view across the bustling street.

Had dinner there last night and would have to say it was amazing, the food was very tasty and cooking it yourself made the experience better on the wood fired BBQ. Also try the chilly bread as this was also very good, pricing very good. Highly recommend

....you've not been to Nha Trang. Last visited 4 years ago and very much the same - tho' is it smaller?? Not the best food you'll eat in Vietnam - nor even in Nha Trang - but definitely the best experience!! Unusually a large number of non-locals were eating - mainly comprising a tour group from Holland - and they... More

Worth doing at least once, price is reasonable. Food is tasty, but be prepared for a lot of smoke and don't wear anything clean as it will need washing from all the smoke. Very hot and humid.

On my second night in NHS grant I found this diamond in the crown, and it was right next door to my hotel! After experiencing some traditional and tasty Vietnamese food in the Mekong Delta I was extremely disappointed with the quality in the places I had been in Nha Trang, until this! It took some convincing to get my... More
