One of the few times I feel like TA has let me down. Out of our 36 meals in Vietnam this came in at 35. Vietnamese pancakes here were more like bad Aussie potato-cakes and the chicken noodle dish I had was v. ordinary. We all voted to leave and east somewhere else.

The food here was fine and the prices were pretty reasonable for dinner. We tried the nem lui, which were not as good as the other iterations we've had, the excellent mixed fried rice, and the caramelized pork, which was disappointing (my companion declared that it "tasted like fart"). We've been eating local/street food for 3+ weeks here and are... More

Best fried spring roles - handmade, fried rice paper rolls and a really generous serving. Loved it! Also had caramelised pork and chicken dishes which were very tasty. Menu had prices and English translations. All very easy...

Went here for dinner after reading great reviews. I am a hard to please kinda girl but this place was great. There was locals dining aswell as westerners, adding a bit more atmosphere. Ordered a few dishes, couldn't help but try the chunky chips :) I also ordered sautéed veg and a veggie pancake. My other half ordered chilli chicken,... More

Was glad that there were already 2 groups of locals having their dinner here. A good sign that food here is good and cleam. Service was fast despite being busy cooking for the large group. Very much agree that price is very reasonable, perhaps foreigners are not discriminated here. The mango was VND15,000. Liked the panfried caramelised pork dish I... More

When we arrived we thought we'd have walked past if we hadn't planned to go based on trip advisor reviews. It's not fancy and was full of locals and doesn't look overly foreigner friendly but it was great! Great service. Menus with English. Tasty with simple flavours with options to add sauces. We had an entree, two mains and two... More

Had the Nem Lui (spring roll with grilled pork) and Ga Ro Ti (slightly caramelised chicken) and noodles with vegetables. It was all fresh and tasty and we would come back again. The prices were reasonable and a number of the people we saw were repeat customers. Always a good sign.

Great menu lots of choice. Food well cooked and fresh. Very cheap and the beer is good price. Staff are friendly and the restuarant has local custom. We had dinner here both nights of our stay in Hue.

A short walk away from many of the tourist traps, this restaurant serves great food for a very reasonable price. Delicious spring rolls (both fried or steamed), and excellent bun bo. The fruit shakes are a must if you still have room after enjoying your meal, that always come in a very generous portion. The owner was kind and pretty... More

Great food. Nice staff. Amazing value and amazing shrimp in sweet n sour sauce. Gives you free banana (the short straight amazing kind) at the end of the meal. We ate here three times in our few days in Hue.
