Open to the street bar/restaurant

Well located in busy street off Le Loi. Beer is well priced and cold. Saigon stubbies pretty well priced. I ate their once. I had a margherita pizza which was O.K. (I am a pizza snob) and value for the price. Many people ate there and the comments I heard were all positive. The staff are very... read more

An alright bar, has a pool table, serves food and has plenty of drink options. But there are better close by! Good for one drink.

Street side cafe/restaurant/bar. Very friendly. Suggested by our hotels. Great draught beer (not in happy hour prices). About 4 bucks for a cold pint. Had bun bo (beef noodle soup) followed by crispy noodles with pork. Wonderful. No rip off prices. Mixture of ex pats and Vietnamese. We loved it.

If your after good cold beers in a chilled setting then defo give it a go. 58,000 for 3 Tigers so reasonable enough (£1.77 for 3 tigers ). Solid choice on what's a busy street to choose from.

I keep on coming there for about six years. And believe it or not: I keep on meeting people there, randomly, fellow travellers and even friends from back in Germany... . A place with a good Kharma. I never had some food there, I have to admit... .

we would have stayed for longer, the service was lovely but the we had a massive group sat next to us and kind of spread onto our table so felt we should make a move and let them have the big groups buisness

Did not have any food just stopped in for a beer. Nice place to tip a few and watch the world go by. Prices seemed fair.

Half price G&Ts until 11:30pm, nice seating area and good burgers (although could have included a few more chips). Didn't try any of the other food, so can't comment on that, but the staff we're very friendly and we returned a second night with friends for more drinks. Definitely worth a look.

I came to Hue for three nights, and ended up finding myself back at this bar each and every night. The staff went above and beyond to welcome you. They were quick to make me laugh and refill my drink. The manager always found time to mingle with the guests and make sure that everyone was happy. The bar has... More
