Food is great here and the atmosphere is uplifting.
we had read about persistant scams in Hue before journeying over and found that this restaurant was cited as a frequent offender of a "coins collector" scam. We went to this restaurant twice and only read about this between visits so because we had such a plesant meal the first time, we disregarded this warning and went again.
The scam itself isnt harmful. One of the staff members asked us where we were from and then asked us if we have any coins or notes from our home country as he is an avid coin collector. The funny thing about the scam is that, having spoken perfect english to us all night he evidently decided this part of the conversation needed to be written down and handed to us instead of said aloud (presuming that could get him in trouble). As I had read about the scam it was funny to me and a little uncomfortable to see him going through the story and basically begging for money.
Not a meal ruiner but definitely disrespectful and not very welcome at a dinner service.
