Bloody quality if ya ask me, if ya don't come out stinking of bbq'd meat then ya doing it way wrong. $20 (nzd of course) gets ya 3 servings of meat, dish o' veges + a cube o' garlic rice and 10 cold beers

This is a definite must for anyone visiting Nha Trang that wants to taste real Vietnamese food! We BYO'd a nice bottle of wine and had loads of fun cooking on our own little BBQ! Super cheap, quick service. Place was packed with locals and tourists, great atmosphere! Give the toilets a miss though. Definitely be back.

Knockout and what a bargain. Saw this as a starred review in the 2016 Rough Guide to Vietnam and made our way there early. So glad we did. It's cook your own BBQ, with a claypot with red hot charcoal brought to your table, fun and delicious. Beautifully marinated- we had prawns (4), chicken and beef water and a bottle... More

This is absolutely one place were you should visit. Order some meat and vegetables to grill. You got your own grill. Food was really good and cheap. Wine bottle less than 100k and beer 20k. Place is weary popular so go quite early or make a reservation.

What a wonderful place this is. I was here 8 years ago, on my own and I never forgot about the exceptional great dinner and time I had here. Now I am back in Vietnam for a long holiday and the only thing on my bucket list was having dinner at this place with the boyfriend. I was extremely shocked... More

If you are in Nha Trang, it is from my point of view a must to go to this restaurant. Here you are really in Vietnam and have the opportunity to get to know the most beautiful side of this culture. Regarding price-performance I can only say that, related to European conditions, the food is almost free! The restaurant is... More

We ordered about 9 dishes including shrimp, beef, fish, squid and veggies. The meat and squid is nicely marinated. The fish is not so tasty as it's too thick to absorb or marinate. The shrimps are big but they don't really have seasonings. The salad is pretty boring. They gave you some charcoal pot to BBQ all the raw ingredients.... More

Took 12 of my Wife's family here and of course they liked it but by American Standard nothing special. Nasty outside the restaurant and dirt road and Smokey inside. Novelty approach trying to be Korean BBQ but not Korean Quality

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.
