Food was great but do not expect service. The place was HOT and we sat outside in the open air without a roof on a cool night. The portion sizes are decent. Food is good. Service is not there. They missed an item we ordered and it never came (if this happens to you just make sure you review your... More

Don't get me wrong the food was fine, but the Staff was crazy busy upstairs and somewhat rude. I could speak and and heard the waitresses complaining non stop. There is complete chaos upstairs and they missed my order multiple times, and forgot to bring us dishes. If you haven't had korean bbq before, stop by, otherwise if you've have... More

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.
