It took quite a time for the taxi driver to find the place. Grounds are beautiful, the service is very good.My daughter and I were there in July for dinner , we were the only people in the restaurant that day and it felt very strange. You never go wrong with the set menu. Every dish was decorated.

This place is hard to find but really worth going. Any hotel can arrange a taxi. It is situated in a beautiful ancient garden house, the staff is very friendly and the food is the best we have eaten in Hue.

Excellent food and a fantastic restaurant. The location is some kilometers from down town Hue in a calm secluded area. Can be hard to findon your own, but going there by taxi is easy. The food is very good, local cuisine and western inspired dishes. Go for the vietnamese dishes, they are excellent. Every dish is decorated with animals, flowers... More

We loved this place! Grounds are beautiful, service fantastic and food phenomenal. Highest priced food we had in Hue but worth the splurge. $62 USD FOR FOUR. Highly recommended.

An amazing stop for four dusty and sweaty bikers. We arrived dirty and hungry and were greeted by a welcoming and friendly staff. The decor is beautiful and the grounds are worth a lengthy visit. The food on the other hand bests them all. The birds' nest soup is the best I've ever had - I've eaten lots since I... More

As is typical when traveling in Vietnam private and group tours use a lot of pre-set menus at nice restaurants throughout the country. Our late lunch here was quiet with only a couple other tables and the food was very good and a little different than all the other pre-set meals we'd had. The plates were garnished nicely but they...

During our trip to Hue this year we had the opportunity to visit this restaurant for lunch. We were very glad that we did because it was one of the most memorable meals that we enjoyed in Viet Nam. This is an ornate but spectacular space. We were a group of 14 so we had a large table in the... More

Our first day to Hue and our first restaurant which had been organised by our tour company. A wonderful choice following the tours of local temples as one walked into to the most serene environment - a beautiful garden and decorated restaurant.

The Ancient Hue is a real gem - from the moment we arrived we felt we were in a special place. The staff are brilliant - friendly, very helpful and they know their food! We felt so welcome. The food is excellent and great value. We enjoyed fruit and vegetable carving demonstration - impressive skill.

My Brother suggested this place as it was tied with Ramsey. For appetizer, we had the 3 different kinds of spring rolls. They were delicious. We tried the braised pork - the pork was very tender and the sauce it was cooked in was extremely flavorful. We came in the early afternoon so we were the only customers. Before my... More
