VERY DISAPPOINTING

Came here March 2014, returned again February 2015 looking forward to the lovely meals we had previously. Definitely not the same standard it had before. Everything on menu was with similar sauces and very unappetising. Did not enjoy the food at all, no wow factor, will never return.

It was four of us and we each had two main dishes. And all of them were really good. The caramelized shrimps were especially great. And the fruit cocktails are amazing as well. Service is good, understands English, and the prices are Vietnamese prices not a tourist trap prices. Very cheap... One of the best restaurants I have been in... More

Love the atmosphere, great service and food. Nice menu, but it needs to change because it's been the same forever. Portions rather small for the price but very tasty.

The food here was very good and very cheap. I ate the fresh spring rolls, pork and shrimp pancake and mango and coconut smoothie and would recommend them all.

I was walking down the street and the lady hailed me over. It was cold, and I needed a bowl of soup to warm me up, so I walked in. However, it turned out to be the pork spring rolls that took the cake. I could eat several plates of those!

This place simple does the best Spring Rolls and Vietnamese food in Hue and for the unbelievably low price you can’t go wrong. You’ll kick yourself if you miss this place. Vegetarians welcome! Also try the rectangular peanut, sesame seed and chewy treat called Thuan Hung. You should be able to pick up a pack of 6 for less than... More

We enjoyed our meal a lot at Phuong Nam Cafe. The quality of the food was good and the prices are low. Also the hostess was very friendly. I definitely recommend this place when visiting Hue!
