Good place for a drink

This is a nice place for people watching. You sit close to the street. Drinks are tasteful, try the strawberry or passion mohito. I didn't eat there, so I can't say anything about the food. Still, it's worth a visit.

Nice place to hang out. It's got a big terrace in front, and inside you'll find a pool table. Played some pool and drank some beer, nice, relaxed atmosphere. You're able to play you're own music (theres a big computer with internet in the back). Also, beer is relatively cheap!

Drinks are expensive (75,000 VND) and not nice, could be great if your having a big night with friends but not great otherwise.

Excellent cocktails and a big screen. We watched some of wimbledon and was a nice spot to chill out after dinner. Always pretty busy but tables were available. Location is good right on the main street. Pool table at the back but this was always in use and hard to get on.

Had a great meal here. Guided by helpful staff on which Hue specialties to try. The 99000 vnd entree platter was great to share. Impressive rain storm provided natural entertainment during meal.
