Had such a wonderful time with my partner at the restaurant. Greeted by the owner & staff with warm hospitality, gourmet food and beautiful decor of the restaurant. Classy and stylish photos and painting were hanged inside the restaurant. At last but not least, thank you for offering us a chocolate cake in the end. It is nice touch for... More

We went to this restaurant because of all the great reviews on trip advisor but we have no idea how this restaurant became number one in Hue. I took one of the more expensive menues while my girlfriend tried two dishes a la carte. None of the courses was terrible but the meals we got were clearly below average. The... More

Disappointing in terms of both food and service considering all the wonderful reviews. Sadly didn't experience either. Perhaps the chef and waiting staff were having an off night.

As part of my Inspiring Asia tour my guide recommended this restaurant! My wife had the Green Mango salad and it tasted very good. I highly recommend this also if your in town and want to enjoy good food.

We visited the restaurant after a very hot morning walking around the imperial citadel. The old French colonial house the restaurant is situated in is delightful and made for a wonderful atmosphere. The food was delicious and accompanied by some incredible vegetable garnishes which were a wonderful touch. The bahn beo was especially delicious.

After a week in Hue sampling various good local restaurants, we finished our stay here and it was the icing on the cake. The beautiful colonial type restaurant, built to resemble a home, with outdoor tables, was a gem. Service, food and ambiance were excellent. We mostly chose set meals with a good variety of Vietnamese and Hua-type specialties. Presentation... More

Exquisite building, wonderful food, gracious staff, Vietnamese classical music while you eat. And all for less than you'd pay for a hamburger in the U.S.

This goes down as one my top 10 dining experiences worldwide. Lovely building in the old imperial district. Tasteful decor and music, brilliant staff that accommodated any requests we had. We tried about 8 dishes, all superb. The best for me being vietnamase green mango salad. Its not too expensive either, which is the icing in the cake
