Heard a lot about this famous restaurant, we asked a local to bring us there for lunch. It was packed, and luckily the local had made a reservation in advance. It was quite dirty, hot, and packed with tourists as well. With the nature of the special dish, we cant complain about the smoke; however, it can be improved with... More

This is a barbecue restaurant. You order some meat and they give you a fire place on your table :) You make barbecue. The meat is fresh, its not expensive, but you smell like fire and smoke after visiting this restaurant. Beer (Saigon) is 10k, big bottle of San Miguel for 20k. Good prices, nice place, some day we come... More

I ate here first time since I was a child ( more than 20 years ago) and it was good until 5 years ago. The service and facilities now are getting so bad. The beef is still ok but not as good as before. I hope the owner concern more about services in this new century of hospitality.

The place was full of smoke. Unfriendly staff. Food is average & quite pricey --> should not call it "a restaurant" (except the high price meets the restaurant standard) One big beef is 150,000vnd (about 200gr). With that money, I recommend the same beef in Gam Cau Street, Hanoi (on the pavement) and you will be full. I heard that... More

Casual place and generally busy. Popular with the locals and vietnamese from other places. There is a wide variety of meat and seafood on offer to be cooked on the table top stove, or you could ask for your food to be grilled by the restaurant. The toasted bread with their marinade/sauce is very nice. A little smoky when busy,... More

We visited this restaurant because it was recommended by Lonely Planet. We could not find a clean table upon arrival, it was mid afternoon so very quiet, no reason why the lady working upstairs could not have wiped some tables instead of sitting and watching the loud, local soaps on the television. The waitress spoke very little English and she... More

Like many other well-known local restaurants in Vietnam, this is a crowded place, cleanliness far from spotless. Friendly staff. Great BBQ with some awesome local meals. Worth to try when in Nha Trang.

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
