The restaurant is not located in the busiest part of the city. Most of the customers are locals which is an indication of the quality being served. If you love good seafood or want a nice BBQ for a very reasonable price, it is the place to go.

We were recommended this venue by a friend of ours in Hoi An. We had a gander at some of the reviews on TripAdvisor, several made us laugh, especially one from a man from the Czech Republic...."you make Barbeque on table". Anyway we rock up, there doesn't appear to be any seats left until the manager tells two guys to... More

It's a tad pricey by Vietnam standards, but the food is amazing! The beef is unmissable, though the pork and chicken are excellent as well. My wife and I stuffed ourselves full of self-grilled meat, fruit, and vegetables, along with a few beers and water, for about 200k VND. It's a very authentic feeling restaurant, as both tourists and locals... More

We went here as a group and ate the barbecue. Look past the rather questionable decor and you notice the place is full of locals, a sure sign that the food is excellent and not priced for tourists. You have a choice of different dishes brought together with a charcoal burner to your table. Health and safety is not too... More

Every time we return to Nha Trang we have to visit this restaurant where you order your food and grill it yourself at your table. This is Vietnam at is best where locals and tourists flock. It is not fancy. Simple tables and chairs, smoke from the grills but this is the Vietnam we love and want to keep coming... More

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
