Western and local food is available - too many choices - so everyone can be happy. Food was good and service is what you expect in Vietnam. (I think some people are used to instant arrival of food and that just doesn't happen in Vietnam.) Reasonable prices.

Arrived in Hue late some of our party looking for a meal and others for a snack. Why Not had every choice we could think of, beer, wine and other drinks all at a reasonable price.

Why not is a great place to relax and see life pass by. I have read a review of groothov giving it a bad grade. While it is right to do so, I know he just wrote a bad review because Mister wanted to get all drinks for free, since he introduced other people to the place. It seems it... More

We had dinner here last night and I must say it's quite not what I expected. The starters were nice, main courses were fine but the staff was just really, really rude. They did a lousy job, insulted clients, did not serve their customers friendly. First time in Vietnam that service was so poor. I will never consider ever coming... More

Ended up eating here with a group of fellow Intrepid tour group travellers, some of whom had less than intrepid tastes in food and felt more comfortable with chicken parmigiana than with authentic Vietnamese food. There was a long wait for the food. The menu included draught beer but later, after I'd ordered draught beer, someone came back to say... More

Staff are a little inattentive but food is good and affordable. Good selection of bottled beers. Go for Festival beer - best of the bunch!

Walked down the road and the staff here were so funny so thought we would give it a try, had a great time with quote a few laughs experienced. The staff spoke good English and made all of us feel at ease

Central location, friendly staff and cheap beer/ cocktails. Happy hour runs for about 3 hours! We were only in Hue for 24 hours or so, and had a couple of beers in the afternoon, and returned for cocktails after dinner. Sat outside and watched the world go by. Not too many hawkers.
