“Best food in Nha Trang”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

Do your self a favor and get out of the backpacker area and come to this restaurant! The food is amazing the prices are very good all in all an extremely good restaurant. The only downside is having a boiling hot barbecue about 2 feet from you in this kind of weather

“Best food in Nha Trang - fun too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

We were recommended to this back street BBQ restaurant, and we have no hesitation in passing on the recommendation. No frills, but great service, wide range of local dishes all freshly made or, even better, ready for you to BBQ at your table. It was packed with tourists and locals, and you won't believe how little it costs. We are at a pretentious and expensive restaurant in the town the following evening and the food was nowhere near as good.

“Ahhhhh loved it!! Top experience in Nha Trang”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

I pulled up to this place with a group of friends who live in Nha Trang. They all raved and said this place was a must-try! I agree. We opted for the do-it-yourself BBQ and got chicken, beef, seafood mix, fried rice, noodles, veggies etc. Everyone's bill came to about $6 (we split it all including several beers) and I was FULL. It was an awesome little place without very many tourists...definitely authentic Vietnamese place. I will be heading back there when my other friends arrive next week. Definitely recommend a trip here!

PS. The bathrooms are a horror show, but you'll survive it!

“It's the DIY BBQ in Nha Trang!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Everyone agrees to say it's the real "do it yourself" BBQ! We took a taxi from the tourist district to arrive to a very busy place, packed with locals, to us it sounds perfect!
We BYO'd, they brought us an ice bucket to keep our white chill, the service was fast and efficient. The menu is in english, easy to pick few plates to share. Usely the portion is enough for 2 persons, we were 4 and ordered 2 chicken, 1 beef, 1 shrimp, 2 mixed vegetables and 1 garlic rice (plus one san miguel beer) for a total price of 400 000VND. We had lots to eat, slowly since the charcoal BBQ is pretty small!
Be aware that on a warm evening, you shouldn't feel fresh and nice when you leave, it's hot hot hot in there, so take a seat outside;)

Amazing food you can barbecue yourself. Our San Miguel beers were opened for us as we sat down. Definitely my food highlight during my qucik Vietnam trip. Skip lunch before you go here.
