This place is a real gem, packed with locals and really just a bit mad! It is a must visit, but dont expect glitz and glamour, just good food, good humour, and maybe the odd bit of ash or charcoal on your clothes (don't wear...More

Our last night in Vietnam, all the more memorable for choosing this place on Trip Adviser advice. We travelled with a guy who is not adventurous at eating, so didn't exactly explain this dining experience enroute. We were sat at a grubby table, burn holes...More

Semi open air. Cheap and very poular with locals and tourists who brave it. The waiters are always in high spirits which is remarkable considering their hours. The general view seems to be to avoid the pork.

If you like barbecues, this is the place to go! If you are looking for a dressy restaurant where tablecloth are changed after every guest and everything is sparkling clean - stay away and leave to fun for the others. But if you like atmosphere,...More

This is a lively resturant packed out with locals and visitors to the city. It all seems a bit manic but it works. Basically, it's a self barbecue service where you select your meats or fish to barbecue. It's fun but hot! Probably best to...More
