“Street BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Don't let the plastic stools put you off. The food is nice. BBQ your own meat and vegies at the table. Simple.

“Do not miss this amazing restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Ok, the first thing you need to know about this place is there is no 'ambiance', it is all about delicious food and a fun experience. This place was the icing on top of making me fall in love with Hanoi. First thing- It is a MUST to sit outside. They give you a small table and a chair that is probably for a child under the age of 5, my boyfriend even fell off at one point but it was all part of the fun! We ordered the traditional meat and vegetables with a beer (which ended up being several on a hot Hanoi night!) The food is absolutely amazing and they give you a dipping sauce, it is comprised of dry seasonings such as salt and garlic powder (I wish I knew the recipe) and they give you limes to squeeze into it to make it a dipping sauce. It is literally mouthwatering! So delicious!! It is super cheap and the staff is constantly helping you with whatever you need, including helping cook the meat. If you are looking for a fancy restaurant, keep walking. But if you want an amazing meal and a fun memory, you must go here!!

“Excellent cook you own BBQ restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

Excellent cook you own BBQ, the staff are very friendly and will show you what to do. There are a few BBQ restaurants along this stretch of road but this one is always full of locals. A meal is around US$5 per person and is well worth it. There is cheaper street food around but none as good as this.
