The meal was excellent and the service was quite good ... and, all things considered, is worth the extra expense.

We were part of a group tour of about 24 people. We were served a wonderful 12 course lunch. Food was amongst best I ever had anywhere and service could not have been better - friendly, efficient, nice explanations of each dish.

The place is gorgeous, the plates well dressed, and... that's it. The food and the wine are unfortunately very far from expectations. Should not be rated as fair price in trip advisor. This is just impossible regarding the place.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel as serving the best Vietnamese food in Hue and we were not disappointed. We had two of the fixed price menus. The food was delicious and presentation the best we've seen in Vietnam. The service was fabulous and surroundings superb.

Elegant and quiet atmosphere in a residential neighbourhood. Some of the building is original and some new-all in the royal style. The country duck was fantastic as was everything else. We definitely recommend this for a special night out in Hue.

The house restaurant is absolutly splendid, in oldish Oriental style...superb. We had the traditional Hue recipe : "Bun bo hue" which was very nice. Impeccable service. Very classy restaurant we highly recommend. Certainly a place not to miss while in Hue !

The hotel people said it was 30 minutes walk. They didn't say it is down a country lane about 2 KM out of Hue, but fortunately we ignored them and took a cab -it was about 15 min in the cab (75 pence each way!). We're very glad we did. The setting is a very quiet garden ,around an old... More

We went to have lunch with my family and enjoyed a menu of nine steps suggested by chef. The cuisine is Vietnamese fusion. The dishes are very delicate and elaborate. The presentation and decor is excellent. The meal was delicious. The wine list is short and low quality. The service is very attentive and professional. The location, décor and gardens... More

This restaurant is first of all one of the only restaurant who doesn't include VAT and service fee in their price. When you ask for the bill with VAT you can still wait for it, apparently they don't care and just keep it. So this restaurant is extremly expensive for what it offers. I have too admit the food is...
