My partner and I visited Lac Canh on recommendation from a Vietnamese friend and we weren't disappointed. Yes... it's smoky, it's hot, the decor is very basic, there is no small talk from the staff and you will leave smelling like a BBQ from head to toe; however the food is delicious, very good value ($10-$15 US for two including...

We had lunch oat the recommendation of our tour guide and were not disappointed. Shrimp, chicken beef squid and eel were our choices and all were delicious. Unlike some reviews that mention service being a problem at night the service we received was great.

In my first trip in Nha Trang, my newly married wife and I aimed to try local food specialty as many as possible. Of course, Lac Canh was in one of my list gathered from internet reviews. However, it made my disappointed. Indeed, nothing impressed me, but the dirty food hygiene. The staff brought to me dirty chopsticks that were... More

Super local BBQ place. Lots of fun grilling on the table. The fish was so good right of the grill as was everything else. It does get smokey at times but thats all part of the atmosphere. One of the more fun dinners we have had on our trip. Go !!

Go for the charcoal BBQ which every one there orders. Can't go wrong with the beef, but the BBQ eel a superb too. The fried vegetable (tube stalk) is very tasty. Best is that all costs at excellent value, 2 of us have a nice dinner @344k (US$15) only! Including beer. Wouldn't miss this while in Nha Trang.

How on earth is this not #1?!! A fun dining experience. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Nha Trang. Situated away from the main tourist strip by an easy flat walk. This bustling restaurant isn't the prettiest but it makes up for it in novelty. You order prepared ingredients, such as meat, fish, vegetables and grill them yourself on a small... More

Tasty food, prepare your dinner on the grill by yourself. We did it twice during one week stay. I can highly recommend this local restaurant. If you ask, all local people will tell you where you find this restaurant. We tryed to do BBQ chicken, pork, eel, shrimps and vegetable. If you ask for rice, take just one for 2-3... More

The quality of the beef, seafood and chicken was very good. Each person has the tools to cook the food on top of a small wood-burning grill. It was fun, not too noisy and the place has a good vibe. If you're sensitive to smoke in your eyes or lungs, you might find this place too smoky.

In this "restaurant" you will find yourself BBQ-ing in between the Vietnamese. You get a small BBQ on your plastic table with plastic chairs and share it with up to 4 people. The meat, fish and dinks are all good quality and not expansive. However the BBQ is very simple and not adaptable. Though the meat is very close to... More

Very special marinated beef and bread. Rest is common for Vietnam, however this place is great experience and very consistent. Have visited more than 10 times during last 2 years. One of the best BBQ in Nha Trang. Maybe service is only thing to improve.
