This place was a jewel. Anyone who gives this place less than 4 stars doesn't know food. This place is the real deal and had the best food that I ate in Vietnam...and I was there for 6 weeks.

Had the 'eat as you can' meal. the food arrival's frequency was ok, the service too, but the quality of the meat it very low. Out of 12 dishes 1 was Ok, 1 was fine, the rest were low quality. Non of the dishes is made on charcoal, the beef (in Vietnam) taste is not the one you expect.

I can really recommend this place! The staff is very friendly and polite, they all speak excellent English and accommodate every need. We ordered the buffet, where they serve you 1-3 pieces of all the 12 different kinds of meat, seafood etc. they have on the grill. When you have tasted everything, you can order freely what you would like... More

If you are visiting Ho Chi Minh for the cuisine, this is not the place to go as this serves international cuisine. But After days of adventurous eating in the city, my friends and I began to crave food from home so we had pizza, pasta, and ribs! The pasta was one of the best I've had, and I am... More

VA few years ago I tried a different Brazilian restaurant and I was not very impressed. I was a bit reluctant to try jj s after reading the trip advisor reviews but I aim glad I did. We chose the unlimited beverage option and found it to be a very good value. The quality of the beef was much better... More

Really good BBQ. Choose the all you eat buffet! The salad bar is average but the BBQ is soooo tasty!

The restaurant is clean and the staff is very friendly. The evening I went there were only 2 other guests. Having eaten Asian food for the past 2 weeks, a meat eaters restaurant was a welcome change. Several of the meats served were over done, almost as if they'd been reheated. Typically I can eat my share at a Brazilian... More

Great place - staff and manager were terrific. Thanks for a great evening - limited seating so would probably book if I went again.

We have been eating Asian food for nearly 3 weeks now so a good BBQ steak was what attracted us here. 440,000 VD for all you can eat. The meat comes around on big skewers & cut off at your table with a buffet of salads & vegetables. The meat was so tender & it was good to add a... More
