“Tropical or just Very Western”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

This was recommended to me by my resort so i gave it a try...Needles to say the service was slow, the food was very average and we were squashed amongst heaps of other tables when outside was empty (and it wasn't raining). Wouldn't rave about it, wouldn't bother going back either. Very very average

“Excellent food for tourists”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

This restaurant very obviously caters to tourists, but they do this very well. The food, including many Hue specialties, indeed is excellent, and the garden ambiance is very pleasing. One of the better restaurant in the tourist quarter of Hue, for a more authentic experience, go to "Ong Tao", but the food here is just as good, only a little bit more expensive.

“Nice dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

There were few people in the restaurant when we came so we didn't have any problem with group.

The staff was nice and the food was good :)
Mango shake, Hue specialties, we had a nice time.

Beware of the moskito outside

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

Went for lunch (across from our hotel) and had great food. We are both vegetarians and they were very nice and replacing the meat in the delicious dishes with tofu. The service was very friendly and informative. The rice gluten dish was quite amazing with nicely fried onions as was the local specialty (I called it Hue Tacos). Overall great lunch.

“Time for change”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2012

Well located, nicely arranged but so oriented on big groups which were not that many. So we sat in a big half empty hall hoping for the vietnamese experience. I do not remember the food but I do remember the music ensemble playing traditional vietnamese instruments. Mostly western songs. I wonder what those musicians must think of us who can not menage a meal without listening to Sinatra´s "My way"...
