Slick service

A busy restaurant when others in the same street empty. Service slick and friendly. Food lacked Vietnamese flavours with a menu dominated by other cuisines. Ate here twice so can't be bad.

We had dinner here on New Year's Eve, due to a suggestion from our guide. It was great! It is a French Vietnamese restaurant, with a very nice menu and very good food. The atmosphere is also great, with candlelight making it very romantic. Prices very reasonable.

This is easily the best food we have had on this three week tour. The fried noodles and shrimp were very good. The Bun Bo which is similar to Pho was exceptional and the red wine was quite good. Total cost for 4 glasses of wine and two dinners was $28. Make reservations if you an as it gets very... More

It's a really easy place to review. Everything is okay except the food, which is bad. Among the worst dishes I ate in Vietnam.

I love this place. The staff at wonderful. The food is lovely. I always order the duck with lemon leaves and a bottle of Da Lat red. The cheese platter is divine. I'll be back ☺

You can tell that this is a good restaurant because it is almost always full - even when most of the nearby restaurants are empty. The reason I eat here is because of one specific dish: their avocado salad with shrimp and bacon. This is an ideal meal for someone like me with high blood sugar. It's both delicious and... More

Hue specialities are must tries (duck, fish and shrimp). Western food not that surprisingly good. The price is very reasonable. Booking is essential. Tel: (054) 3810491.
