We went for lunch, and found the gardens beautiful and the dining area tastefully decorated. We had a multi-course meal with some excellent fresh fish and meat. The servers were attentive, friendly, and happy to talk about the food, the location, and Hue in general. The manager spoke to us for quite a while, and recommended other restaurants to try... More

Visited this place based on TA reviews, and news articles online. Dining Experience: Arrived for dinner, and were seated immediately. We ordered the royal meal (26USD) and were very happy with the presentation. The staff was extremely friendly, and they explained every dish as it was being served. At the end of the meal, the chef even came out to... More

We were surprised at the small quiet roads our taxi followed to reach this restaurant but once there, a delightful girl showed us round this authentic old vietnamese house and then to our table. The environment is very special and the food did not disappoint. Well worth a try when is Hue.

Dine in a raised wooden pavilion after passing through a garden with a lotus pond and bronze urns. The setting is wonderful and food lived up to the setting. Good wine list at very attractive prices. Definitely worth the taxi ride.

A bit hard to find (the location on Trip advisor's map is wrong, follow the map on the restaurant's website instead), but you will be rewarded by how beautiful it is when you arrive. The food was very good and the waiters extra nice. I want to note that the review from "Wol C" from August 18th is ridiculous: the... More

Our guide recommended this restaurant to us and it did not disappoint. A spectacular setting in a beautiful garden, where we felt transported back in time. We had a terrific meal- we tried the Vietnamese cuisine, and everything was fresh and delicious and the staff extremely attentive.Highly recommend a visit!

This restaurant serves traditional and "fusion" vietnamese dishes with a smattering of western offerings. All entrees are prepared fresh. The chef came out at the end of our meal to demonstrate vegetable carvings of plants and sea life for entrees!
