We first visited for lunch in Dec2010 and had a great experience. It was everything the guide books said and more. Food was wonderful and the atmosphere was brilliant. So it was that we were eager to return when we visited Hue again this September.
Unfortunately we picked a busy night. A tour group arrived shortly after we did and it seems that most of the restaurants resources were directed towards them (probably fair enough).
Although tasty, the food didn't live up to our memories and some of the dishes we ordered simply didn't arrive.
I don't want to give an average rating but very good is perhaps a bit high this time round.

Thank PandLH

Dined here on way back from the citadel. Small so you get the real street food feel. Nice savory pancakes with figs and an interesting satay type sauce which is a Hue specialty dish. Very tasty.

Very popular place where you can write and sign on the walls: very funny! Good food. Not much space.

I came here on an Intrepid tour. No idea why, the food was terrible. Avoid.

This restaurant is runned by a family were 7 kids were raised mute. So don t take it personally i they dont talk much. Just smile at them, and you ll see the custest smiles on these girls faces. The banh quay is excellent, and so is the rest. Definitely the good place to go after a visit of the imperial city
