“lovely desserts”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We stopped here for coffee and dessert. It was very good. We got a dark chocolate dessert to share. It was great. They had a nice little selection of desserts to choose from. The staff were nice but seemed a little peed off we wanted to share a dessert. I also had a seasonal fruit shake. it was a bit expensive but it was very nice.

“Lovely modern Vietnamese restaurant”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

We recently went to this restaurant or lunch whilst touring Vietnam. Our tour operator had selected this for us, but we were not disappointed. The Banana Flower is in the central part of Hue close to the bridge which is Hue's emblem. It is very clean and modern and is a cool place to recharge the batteries after a day in the Vietnamese sun, having both air con and large fans. The decor is very modern with clean white marble walls and floor, and so it does not look like what I would say most people see a traditional Vietnamese restaurant. The atmosphere was difficult to gauge with it being lunchtime and there only being 2 other tables occupied. The staff were lovely and ensured we were well looked after. Our waitress spoke reasonable English and was very pleasant and helpful. The food was a set menu of Vietnemese fare and was all fresh and delicious. There was also a chiller at the front of the restaurant which had numerous cakes and sweets which looked scrumptious and had a French look to them. Our meal was that good that we considered going back to have our evening meal there, but in the end wanted to see a different place. We did walk past however and the lunchtime staff recognised us and waved to us in the street, which was nice, but may be typical of the place. I'd definitely give this place a go if in town.

“Delicious, fresh desserts”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

If you are a dessert foodie then you will love their selection of desserts. They are fresh and really tasty. Their ice-cream is expensive but really tasty. Western prices for all desserts but a nice treat.

“Do not go here”
Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

We had milkshakes here after dinner because it looked great from the street but the milkshakes were $4US each and had only a mouthful in them. When we complained one of the staff became really aggressive. We ended up paying for only 1 of the 2 milkshakes. DO NOT GO HERE. Terrible service and no value for money

“yummy dessert with coffee”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

We enjoyed our lunch in this modern clean restaurant. Our local style fresh spring rolls were a new twist on this common but often disappointing dish, they where soft not chewy and a lovely balance of fresh herbs and shrimp with pork. The best thing I liked here was the tempting desserts in the cake fridge. Yummy chocolate sponge cake that we shared. But so many more cakes to choose from fruit mouses tirimasu and they have a coffee machine if you are hanging out for a cappuccino.
