“Cute restaurant, average food, friendly staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

This was on my list after reading all the good reviews, and after stumbling upon it whilst wandering the streets of Hue, we decided to try it out, as it looked cute and appealing from the outside, all nicely lit up.

We chose to sit outside, so had a great view of the street. Thankfully we didn't get hassled at all, unlike in other restaurants, so got to enjoy our meal.

The restaurant had a special 5 course meal offer on the night we ate there, which was too good value to miss. It was basically 5 courses for the cost of 2.

Each course was really basic, (cheese & onion soup, noodles, chicken, rice, fruit), and quite small in portion size. Our hunger was satisfied at the end of the meal, but we couldn't help feeling that there was no chef that evening, and the reason there was a special was so that the wait staff could just reheat our food. From all of the good reviews, we were somewhat disappointed.

We were also the only ones in the whole restaurant which was a shame.

The staff were very friendly though, and we would give it another chance. I think we just went on the wrong evening.

“Great food, great company”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

We spent 4 days in Hue and after the first visit to L'Aubergine we didn't feel the need to eat anywhere else. Just 20 metres from the Jade Hotel the European and Vietnamese set menus are well worth the price and being a small family restaurant, the service was first class.We were given good advice about places to see and tips regarding the local scams. All in all, a first class venue.
