“Great food and lively restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a great experience at the place. We ordered the five pepper venison, marinaded prawns, and vegetable skewer which were all flavorful and it was great to grill yourself. We were also surprised to see that the prawns came out live, which just shows how fresh they are. The atmosphere is casual and lively, but it just adds to the overall experience. There were a few other tourist there, but it seemed to be mostly locals and expats. Great place, would go back.

“Great food and atmosphere on a rooftop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

A do it yourself cooking restaurant set on a rooftop terrace. Each table has a small gas grill you use to cook your food, whether it be vegetables, buffalo, pork, deer, seafood, etc. The items come pre-spiced with something i'd simply refer to as delicious.

The ambiance of the place is great. Sort of reminds me of a German beer hall. Filled with expats and locals alike. Perfect setting for a post-sunset stuff your face style dinner. Enjoy!

“Excellent food, wonderful location and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

We went to this place upon recommendation of people we met at Ha Long bay and we didn't regret. The food we had the first evening was absolutely amazing (especially the banana flower salad with pork and shrimp). Doing the barbecue ourselves was a lot of fun and we liked a lot the marinades of the different kinds of meat and the small side dishes that came with them. The restaurant is on a rooftop and not at all catered towards tourists, although there are a couple there mixed with a majority of Vietnamese. We'll definitely go there again.

“The best BBQ restaurant in Saigon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I was kindly recommended to visit this place by owner of Mui Ne Hills Guest House during my stay there. After arrival in Saigon i finally found that wonderful restaurant. It's located in the open area in the 3rd floor of the narrow entrance and corridor leading to the stairs is so magic and classy, preparing you for smth great. When i arrived it was almost full, but i was easily seated. Menu is great, huge variety of the items for bbq, plus 3T specials, i took beef in honey and king prawns. The idea of the restaurant is that you barbecue chosen items by yourself it's very entertaining and interesting. Staff kindly helped me and showed how i should do everything. Food was excellent, very tasty. The lady, restaurant owner, checked each table if the customers were ok. I really enjoyed my evening, would definitely recommend it to everyone, who wants to try really great BBQ. I only advice to reserve a table in advance, as there are so many people want to have dinner in 3T.

“Great atmosphere !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

I had dinner once and for sure I will go back. The place is great : you eat outside, the view is nice and the atmosphere is perfect if you want to go with your friends, have a big table and celebrate a birthday for example.
The food is very good. You need to try the shrimps.
Definitively, worth going there. And most of the customers are vietnamese, which is a good news if you start becoming annoyed with places crowded with tourists !
