We arrived by taxi and didn't know what we were in for.There didn't seem to be any tables but we were whisked through to another section at the back and as soon as you walked in the atmosphere hit you in the face. A table was produced out of nowhere and we were seated and waiters came from everywhere. There... More

We went here last night......first up San Miguel beer as we watched a number of buses pull up and ferry tourists upstairs for dinner. This is a BBQ place...like lanterns.....but a bit better. They use a special coal which has a unique flavour. I know this because after dinner we were out shopping and a young lady comments to me... More

Lac Canh is one of the very rare places referred to by the travel books that still remains the same. The food is very good though the service seems to be lacking. That is probably what fame brings as they will be busy on the guidebooks recommendations alone. This is a great place to go for authentic Vietnamese beef dishes.

Tried the BBQ beef goes well with loaf of bread. The claypot rice does not suit my taste bud. Service of the staff is not up to standard. You need to find your own table. The waiters and waitress just stand around and very difficult to call for them. not service orientated.

This is a real hussle and bussle no frills restaurant. If you are looking for refined, plush dining this is NOT the place for you. But if your looking for good, authentic Vietnamese food this is a must. The place is full of energy and always full of locals - which is always a good sign. A litre of Tiger... More

The food here was wonderful and the restaurant was recommended to us by the owners of the hotel we stayed at, not faraway. We were there about 9 p.m. and there were several local Vietnamese men gambling away and a lot of drinking going on at most tables. Not a great atmosphere if you care about ambiance, but food was...

Great place to go with groups, if you go late you will most likely see big groups of drunken Vietnamese people cheering loudly all around you. Make sure you cook the meat properly. Had bad diarrhea the day after twice, probably because of poorly cooked pieces.

My friend called waiter and ordered 1 salad and stir-fried noodle. The waiter didn't repeat order, just went away with silience. After 30 minutes... More
