Wonderful evening and great food

My husband and I had dinner here on January 19, 2016. The service was exceptional. The food was both beautifully presented and absolutely delicious, course after course. I wish we had stayed a few more days so we could have spent an evening here again.

This is a beautiful building in an out of the way suburban street. It was recommended by our guide as it was open during Tet and had a lovely setting. Food was good, as most is in Vietnam, but fairly expensive. The service was excellent, but the place was pretty quiet.

If you like a quiet place, beautiful Hue is great choice. I visited Hue just one day. Perfume River, Trang Tien Bridge, Thien Mu temple, Hue Palace, Dong Ba market. One day is enough. I don't like cyclo in here. We're just walking and "xe ôm"

My wife and I visited this restaurant while on a walk trying to find garden houses near the ancient city. This restaurant actually is in a gorgeous old garden house. We arrived slightly off of the lunch hour and had the staff to our self. The menu was good and we both had our best meal in Hue.

During a private touring session, our guide brought my wife and I to this restaurant for lunch. Walking up a few stairs to the restaurant, we entered a beautiful garden area. The interior restaurant setting was elegant and food very delicious. After lunch, we toured the well-maintained and wonderful garden house in which the restaurant resides. This was one of... More

We read the reviews that were so mixed but decided to go and we were glad we did. It was not too far out and the setting is great. There are several areas within the restaurant but our section was neither noisy nor lonely - the perfect balance. Attentive staff, lovely garden location and good food made for a great... More

This place was beautiful. You need a cab to get there, but it will get you to see a different part of the city. It was very quiet when we went, definitely did not need a reservation. The staff was a highlight, personable and professional. My husband had a fish dish, and it was delicious. I had the royal tasting... More
