Tucked nicely away from the main roads, lies this beautiful restaurant in a picturesque setting. The food was some of the best I've had; with great picture worthy presentation.

Have been reading reviews on TripAdvisor for many years but Have never written a review ourselves but felt on this occasion we had to. Have just returned from a fabulous evening at ancient Hue. The experience from start to finish was a special experience. The restaurant is set in a picturesque complex of traditional Vietnamese buildings(which is so spectacular they... More

This lovely restaurant was recommended to us by our tour guide, for our one night in Hue. It's hidden away in a very quiet, largely residential area - difficult to find if you don't know what you're looking for! Our taxi driver knew exactly where to go, however. The restaurant has a lovely ambience about it, with great lighting and... More

You definitely need to take a taxi to find this gem. When we arrived for dinner the hostess gave us a brief tour of the compound, comprised of 5 buildings (2 of which are museums) and the central garden. What a gorgeous idea for a restaurant. The service was excellent and the food delicious. The wait staff noticed that our... More

We stopped here for lunch during a visit of historical Hue. The setting is lovely, and probably a lot nicer at night than in the day. Menu is rather confusing, and unexciting. Vietnamese food was bland, even with the extra chilli sauce we requested. Service was timid but acceptable. Portions small. Prices large. Go here more for the surroundings than... More

This is one of the most beautiful restaurants in which I have ever eaten. The food was very good and the service was excellent. When we asked about the garnish - two doves made out of white turnip- they brought the food decoration carver to demonstrate her work at our table. She carved a shrimp out of a carrot. Well... More

This has to be one of the strangest meals I have ever had. My wife and I sat alone in a room all by ourselves while we ate our food. The silence in the room felt deafening. The place was beautifully decorated and the staff were very polite and helpful. However, the food was bland and below average, even though... More

The Ancient Hue Restaurant is tucked away in an inconsicuous location, on a narrow street to the west of the Citadel and the city center. Our taxi driver was a bit unsure about the address, so we asked to be dropped off nearby, spotted the array of lights, and walked across a bridge to arrive at this most wonderful eatery.... More
