The owner runs a home for deprived children and finances it with his pension plus proceeds from the restaurant. That's already quite something, but how about the food? Well, we're a partly Japanese family and know our Japanese food & drink - and this is a place we'd certainly recommend to all Hue visitors who want to benefit from being... More

Via web I got this restaurant's info and its story behind, so I wanted to go for a dinner. Unfortunately there were only two people in the restaurant when I entered.

There were 3 tables occupied when we arrived. We were politely shown a table and given the menu which was quite extensive and looked really good. The prices were very low compared... More

Very good sake and okonomiyaki (which I seldom find well-made outside Japan). I only wish the place was a bit more atmospheric, otherwise - thumbs up!

There are 3 Japanese restaurants in Hue and I highly recommend this Japanese restaurant!!! Because this restaurant is run by a Japanese NGO called "JASS" who runs an children home in town. I worked there as a volunteer for one year and I strongly support their activities. They started to help street children in Hue 16 years ago. Now, almost... More
