Serving Saigon for more than 10 years, AU LAC DO BRAZIL is the very first authentic Brazilian Churrascaria in Vietnam, bringing along with it a new dining concept - an "All You Can Eat" Brazilian style BBQ, where meat is brought to your table on skewer by a professional passador and served to your heart's content, paired with an extensive selection of fine wines.

“Exceptional - A meat lovers paradise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Quite possibly my favourite restaurant. Anywhere. The food was sensational. For those not familiar with the whole Churrasco thing - endless skewers of perfectly cooked meats, various succulent cuts of steak & beef, lamb, sausages, chicken, king prawns accompanied by side salad and various sauces to accompany each meat. They even throw in a tasty light dessert as well, thankfully as we could hardly move after that feed! Would recommend for all carnivores, we will be back for sure! Ah, and try the caipirinhas! Staff were superb. Great experience!

“good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We've been here 3 times. The first time was about 6,7 yrs ago in Pasteur (Or Truong Dinh Street if I'm not wrong). The 2nd and 3rd time was in District 7. The one in District 7 is quite more spacious and fancier than that in Pasteur, which is a bit dark and narrow.

Well, if you're a fan of meat or grilled food, this is definitely the place! My favorite is picanha served with butter bean rice. You can't go wrong with a bottle of red wine! However, the restaurant should try to diversify their choice of salads. So far there's been only 2 types of salad.

“OK for meat lovers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

If you wanna compare w/ the Churrasqueria in South AMERICA, i don't think this place can match w/ your expectation. BUT if you just need the meat,, then this place will definitely satisfy your needs
i just feel the salad bar is little lack of something. not much other to eat. so i say only for the meat lovers..
by the way I am meat lover!! so i love this restaurant.

“A great Brazilian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

A great Brazilian restaurant with great barbecue piece of meat, lamp, pork, and so. The price is actually quite affordable, the drinks are very nice, specially the caipirinha, loved the butter rice, the staff are quite friendly, a bit laking of attentiveness. Both restaurants in District 3 and District 7 are very nice, the one in District 7 is actually nicer proposing a dancing place attached to the restaurant if you fancy partying after the feast.
