I have been to this restaurant many times in the past and recently returned there again. They never fail to satisfy. I love the fact that you can grill your own meat on a grill right at your table. My favorite is the seasoned pork but also like the fresh squid, it is simply so fresh and so tasty when grilled. One minor issue and really isn't a big deal, but they seem to want to try and push the San Miguel beer on all the guests. I personally prefer Tiger beer and you almost have to insist to t get another beer other than San Miguel.

We went with a group of non- vegans but the restaurant knocked themselves out to give us a great array of veggie tofu, and fruit options to grill and a load of veggie side dishes. Our carnivore friends were soon eating from our plates. And we all shared big bowls of steamed rice and many rounds of the incredibly cheap San Miguel beer.

This lively place is filled with locals, including families and couples on dates along with tourists. It is very basic with the focus all on the food and fast service. We saw no vermin or cockroaches as others reported and it was no dirtier than the many local restaurants we have seen throughout Vietnam.

And our bill after eating till we were just stuffer, including beer? $ 5 for 2 people.

As others have written, this is not 'fine dining' and makes no pretentious to be so. But a great meal and local experience.

Came here as suggestion on internet & friends, my wife, me & 2y son were very suprised with the old & dirty atmosphere. Service is too slow. Food is not so special. And the worst thing is i saw some baby coaches go around my table surface. We quickly move to another place without finishing our order.

Within the top ranked restaurants in Nha Trang, the BO NUONG LAC CANH (Lac Canh grilled beef) is something very, very truly Nha Trang.
The most famous and delicious dish is the name of the restaurant: self-grill Viet-style beef on a coal oven.
There are many tasty side dishes that you can try, but the beef is the must-try :)
We always visit this place whenever we visit Nha Trang, and always feel happy when leaving.
most top ranked restaurants are foreign cuisines, but Bo Nuong Lac Canh is on our own Nha Trang #1, because it is simply " from Nha Trang with a lovely taste" :)

I've read some of the reviews on here and think a few people need to get out and about in Vietnam a bit more. This place is eating where the locals go and hence, you don't get silver service, tablecloths etc etc. This is experiencing Vietnam. Get out of the high rise sanctuary of the hotels and come and get a barbecue at Lac Canh. We ordered pork and beef on the barbecue with some sides and rice and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Careful as some of it is on the spicy side, but beer is so cheap you can soon cool your tongue down. Give it a go.
