“Lovely location and lovely food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

We went there for dinner and we can confidently say that the garden setting is very pretty, especially in the evening. The fried jackfruit was a real discovery but in fact all the food was fresh, extremely well prepared, mouth-watering and very good value for money. I saw one rat but it didn't bother me that much because there were scores of them wandering around the Perfume River ...

“More rats than diners- avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

This restaurant is summed up neatly in one word - rats! I counted at least three. We were looking forward to last night's veggie meal, and were slightly baffled as to why such a nice looking place had so few diners. It soon turned out that those who were there were outnumbered by rodents. We had started eating by this point and, honestly, the food didn't taste half bad. I am happy to report that, 24 hours later, we are suffering no ill effects, so that's a bonus. Not that we finished our meal, as you can imagine. A few cats wouldn't be a bad idea. All very disappointing and a bit freaky, especially as the staff didn't seem that bothered.

“Would love to say i ate here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

I am quite tolerant when it comes to food and restaurants but this place was my worst experience in SEA. I went here based on the lonely planet recommendation and to try and give the veggie wife a bit of a change in meat lovind asia. We walked in and were a bit unsure what to do, we kinda stood around as the staff ignored us so we sat ourselves down. We were still being ignored and after 15 mins the wife was storming out she was asked if there was a problem and then given two menus. We went through the menu which is quite large, we waited about 10 mins to order when a staff member came over and asked us to move table for a larger group (I haven no issue with that by the way) then after about 15 mins of waiting another staff member came over to say they was only vegetable hot pot on the menu and two other items, why we weren't told this as we were given the menus or asked to move I'm not sure. A wasted hour, we won't wasted our time again, don't waste yours.

“Ok food, good value, nice service, great setting. Go here, not Lien Hoa.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

The food here was good. Not great, but not bad. The fresh rolls came with a good peanut sauce - ordered this twice. Also ordered the sesame / jackfruit dish twice. The jackfruit was pretty good - inspiring me to cook more 'meat' from jackfruit. The 8 thing salad was tasty. Fried tofu was bland, but the chili sauce was HOT - so that cured that.

Ate here twice while in Hue - and also ate at Lien Hoa. If you are deciding between the two, choose Bo De. lien Hoa was FILTHY - no soap, three rats, garbage and food everywhere blowing around. And the food was horrible. Bo De was like a 5 star restaurant compared to Lien Hoa. Really nice setting near the river and cheap. Four plates and three beers and a water were about $7.
