Pretty decor, decent food, inconsistent portions

The title says it all, I guess. We had claypot fish and the portion was miniscule yet delicious. I wouldn't mind paying 50% more for 50% more food. Claypot rice was good, and so was the chicken and banana flower salad (the portion of which was quite large). Service was decent but not very smiley.

The interior is buttery warm, all rich woods, vaulted ceiling. It reminded me of the temples I visited in Vietnam. Service was above above average. We were a large group of over a dozen..YAY...cuz then we were able to try many many things!!!! The Vietnamese Crepes with the pork and veggies were amazing....fresh fresh sprouts and greens on top of... More

Disappointed that our hotel La Residence recommended this restaurant. We noticed that the restaurant was empty, at 9pm... Should have changed the plan at that moment but didn't think the hotel would steer us wrong. Service (rating 4.5) was friendly and decor (rating 4.5) is definitely more upscale and nice. Food was decent (rating 3.5). Pricing per dish is pretty... More

Bad service. Once you sit down. They brought out 5, 6 little dishes. Sort of like the little dishes in Korean restaurants. The difference is that the Korean restaurants do not charge you. Here they charge you most of the little dishes without telling you in advance. It's a total ripoff. Never come back again

The food is fantastic!!!! We are the family of 6 sdults and 1 kid, we did enjoy the meal in July. Everything here was made of wood, and it made us feel warm during the meal.

I and my boyfriend (from Germany) came to this restaurant as I were looking for a place with decent ambiance (not street or food stall style) that serves authentic Hue food, and not overly complicated and fancy ( I.e. imperial dining style with many courses). All authentic Hue dishes that I ordered ran out (all of them!). They suggested an... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a holidaying Vietnamese family. They said it was true Hue food at good value prices. We over ordered as the portion sizes were very big. We thoroughly enjoyed it although the fried chicken was disappointing. It is slightly out of the centre of Hue so will need a cab to get you there. I... More

One of the most nice restaurants in Hue city with delicious foods and drinks. Reasonable price, good service... just take a little long time for serving. Not to close from the center but easy to reach. Should give it a try. You will like this place for sure
