“Hidden off the Tourist Trap”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Small and intimate in the front, large upstairs, and huge seating area in the back garden.
Come before 6pm and sit in the front.
The restaurant clientelle is mostly Asian arriving in ;arge groups and by the bus load.
The menu list is extensive and interesting.
You may choose to cook for yourself.
I enjoyed the frog legs and fried rice with garlic and a shrimp pie (shrimpmeat on a sugarcane stick and fried).
An enjoyable dinner at a very reasonalble price.
I have been back already.

“Get into the atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

For our first night in Nha Trang our guide took us here for our evening meal. At first I thought we weren't going to get a seat but the restaurant extends out the back. The tables cater for groups and it looked as if we were the only Aussies there, there were heaps of locals, good sign. Drinks arrived promptly and then the fun begins. Fish, chicken, beef, prawns (large) were provided to cook over a charcoal burner which is placed on the table, approx 1 between 5. Rice, vegetables and sauces accompanied the meat and fish. Really enjoyed the meal, we were in and out in just over an hour when you consider how packed this restaurant was, is a plus. Do yourself a favour, add this to your list of 'must do's' when visiting this part of Vn.

“Has been better”
Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

I've been coming here for years and the atmosphere still ok , but not a touch on its former self. The food / BBQ sauces were great, now they are lacking taste . The beef was always the signature dish and I found it tough. However , if your a tourist and want to see a VN restaurant ( it always had many tourist ) this should satisfy you , even though there are many similar VN restaurants in NT

“Excellent local food”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

We have been going here, many times for many years, and despite moaning Australians, the food is well marinated, local food which is very popular with locals and tourists. It's not gourmet, but just fun cooking your own food, and very reasonable in price. It appeared which cleaner and tidier this year, and you are given to pairs of tongs when ordering chicken. It's smokey fun cheap, and a good experience, and we have never been poisoned there yet, as long as you cook your food properly
