This is the greatest place to go for the experience of eating at a place that the locals love. It is crowded. It is smokey with the customers grilling their food on each of the tables. Fans are blowing in a futile attempt to blow the smokey air away. Your clothes will smell afterwards but this restaurant is Vietnam at... More

Hot, Smokey, Noisy, Busy. We had one of the best waiters (was he the maitre d?) we've had anywhere help us through the menu and it didn't disappoint. Basically expect a smoking cauldron of fire parked under your nose and then go for it with your chosen victuals and a few bits and bobs on the side thrown in for... More

This place is very popular with locals and tourists. Try the dishes you have to BBQ yourself. Fab food at reasonable price. Ignore the attitude of the staff as it is probably the worst I have experienced in Vietnam and focus on the food!!

If you want to experiance a real, full on Vietnamese BBQ restaurant, go to this place!! With plastic chairs, a fan and tl-lighting, it is fantastic. A very busy place, Vietnamese people and tourists mix together. Our loval dive guide recommended the place. The food is really good, we went for bbq beef, bbq chicken and bbq shrimp (big ones)....

We went here for our evening meal, 2 courses plus a couple of beers was less than 300 VND. Service is great, they are helpful and fast. Food was fab, fresh & full of flavour. It's down a side street but don't be put off, it's safe & worth it!

The food was great - we got the bbq meat that you get to cook by yourself. We also got garlic fried rice and mixed stir fry vegetable and spring rolls, which were also delicious. Good service, good atmosphere, good food.

We went here for dinner and couldn't get in, so came back the next day for lunch. It was great fun grilling your own food on the table top bbq. We had pork, chicken and beef plus some spring rolls. Food was great, beers could have been colder. It is about 5 minutes by taxi from the main beach and... More

We wrapped up a circuit of pagodas outside Nha Trang and made it here just in time to miss a substantial downpour. It is a popular local eating place that specializes in grill your own food. While it has a street feel it was more comfortable and open. They can accomodate large groups with planning. For $65 we fed six... More

We came here twice it was so good. Best local place in Nha Trang. We found it hard to find anywhere local as everything in Nha Trang is so geared towards the Russian tourist market. This place is out of the crazy neon tourist trap and so much more pleasant. We had the beef, chicken, morning glory and egg fried... More
