We were sitting in second row, which was excellent to watch people in this busy restaurant and pub street. The food we had was really good, much better than we had expected. I would recommend going there for a couple of beers and food!

We went to this bar a couple of times in Hue because it had good staff, a nice big pool table and was generally a nice environment. It was much less backbackery than other bars but was by no means too fancy or expensive.

I have been to this bar a few times and have found it to be a great place to relax and have a drink and/or a bite. It works on your own and with big groups. They have pretty good cocktails at reasonable prices. The staff are friendly. This place is linked with the Why Not hotel and the Jalapeno... More
