Barbecue is best enjoyed with friends, and Akay Nướng BBQ is no different. Located across the street from Hồ Tây, this casual outdoor spot provides tables with individual barbecues and a menu packed with meat and vegetable options for grilling. We recommend loading up on beer and bánh mỳ to tide you over during long cooking times.

verdict: stick with meat and skip the shrimp (they take too long to cook)
