Great Hue specialties friendly staff

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.

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.

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 friendly, although you... More

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.
