Was introduced to the place after doing motorbike tour and it has a wide menu of dishes available. Prices are reasonable as well. I came back for dinner on the same night and the lady boss gave me a banana as a thank you treat!

We had dinner here one night in Hue. We picked it because it was busy. They do fantastic fresh fruit shakes here. The food was pretty good. I did order the wrong thing and it wasn't what I expected when it turned up but that was just a case of me not reading the description properly. It's good, honest Vietnamese... More

Tried their bun bo hue and it was the best i have tasted in vietnam. They also have fruit juices which are awesome. Price was reasonable and staffs were friendly. You have to walk a little further down to find this store. Overall good experience!

Discovered by accident whilst wandering back to our hotel. Smoothies are the best, and the food is great value for money, with an extensive menu.Good and friendly service.

My boyfriend and I found this restaurant as we were walking around. It was fairly crowded at 1 pm. We each ordered a fruit smoothie/shake, which were very refreshing. I ordered the rice noodles with chicken and vegetables. It was fantastic. My boyfriend had a chicken and rice dish, which had great flavor. The bill came to about $6.50- a... More

This place was a delight! We were first introduced to it as we were wandering our way through the melting humidity of Hue looking for a place to cool down. We wandered in and took a look at the menu, 15,000vnd for a shake.. Very cheap compared to Hanoi where we had just been. Then a gentleman, noticing our surprise... More

We came here because of the good reviews but we're very disappointed. The food was bland and all tasted the same. It was also very greasy everything was fried.
