My family and I went here specifically for the fried crickets and they did not disappoint! The crickets were well prepared and delicious. One order includes 10 pieces. Overall, the menu has "exotic" items which aren't found on many menus in Vietnam. in other words, these are not commonly eaten by the locals. In Bangkok you can buy fried crickets... More

We have been there many times and always enjoyed it. However, recently that has changed. Food quality is down and the prices are up. Ordered the BBQ beef and we noticed the amount was less then in the past, and when it was ready to eat it was really tough meat. Now for the really bad.... once my bill was... More

This restaurant was recommended by a local. The food was delicious. There are plenty of unusual foods on offer here like scorpions, crocodile etc but we didn't try any of those. Staff were friendly and helpful and one spent time playing with our young son which was a nice experience

I've try a deep fried scorpion, it was a little bit crunchy. Crickets tasted better. And I tried a crocodile also, it tasted similiar to pork but fatty with taste of fish. I quess, a fair, clean BBQ restaurant with reasonable prices..

I visited on my last night in HCM. Prompt attentive service and tasty BBQ you cook yourself at the table over charcoal. Delicious sauces, cold beer. What's not to like?

This is an open restaurant on Ly Tu Trong street in HCMC. It is very well managed and the service is excellent with great food and cold beer. The signature dish is slices of marinated beef BBQ'd at your table. The meat is tender and served with salad... amazing flavour. french fries are available of course. Other delicacies are oysters...

I have been to this place many times and while there are many good BBQ places around in my opinion this is the best. Mostly filled with Vietnamese people all enjoying the quality food and attentive staff. It is not flash but it is authentic Vietnamese food in an authentic Vietnamese environment in the middle of the city. You can... More

Me and my family choose this restaurant to celebrate my mom' birthday, and this is definately a great decision. You should try grilled chicken with chili salt, fried frog with lemongrass, and especially grilled beef. I am pretty sure that you will satisfy with those 3 dishes.
