By far the most interesting restaurant experience in Hue. Mr Chu is a well known photographer and so very interesting to talk to. They proudly bring out their photo albums for you see, so out of courtesy please do take the time to look at them. If you do, you will enjoy it. His photos capture the very essence of... More

The food was ok. It is tourist friendly and there is a lot of information available on day trips and tours. Possibly it suffers in comparison to the other very tasty foods we ate in Hoi An and Hanoi

We were treated to charming service and delicious local food. The proprietor is a keen photographer. His works adorn the walls of the restaurant. A must eating place to delve into the tastes of central Vietnam.

My family was hungry for breakfast after an overnight train trip, and this was the perfect place to fill up. Mr Cu gave us a very warm welcome, and we really enjoyed looking at his beautiful photos. We bought some (they are very cheap and SO amazing) and he does not pressure you to buy. The albums are an enjoyable... More

The menu is good. There is a nice selection of local specialties. The owner has posted photos he has taken over the years. He greeted us between courses, and have us a free postcard featuring his photos. A nice comfortable place. Good service, and good value.

This is the place our 8 year old loves and remembers. Not fancy but so warm and friendly. .. and great food. Best dishes were the beef pho and the fried spring rolls but the overwhelming memories were the wonderful welcome and Mr Cu's gorgeous photos. Touching and memorable. .. not to be missed. They are especially fabulous with children.... More

Go here for honest info and good prices. Tin, the waitress speaks good English and will let you browse the photo albums of the famous owner Mr Cu. You can even book a photography tour by moped with him. If photography is not your 'bag', just take a moped tour with Mr Teo - we booked a day's tour of... More
