“True Vietnamese”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

If you're looking for a unique, thrilling atmosphere to go hand in hand with excellent Vietnamese-style food, Hue Palace may let you down on the decor, but you'll be more than satisfied with what comes out of the kitchen. Located in a strip mall, Hue Palace will meet your expectations on quality and surprise you on affordability. This is truly one of the area's most under-rated restaurants.

“AMAZING VIETNAMESE, BAD ATMOSPHERE. GET IT TO GO.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

It sucks that their amazing food is in a boring, dull, quiet atmosphere. The interior is dead silent, ugly, and boring. The food is AWESOME. Vietnamese done right. I always get the Beef noodle bowl with fish sauce. I devour it everytime. Mouthwatering taste, perfect meat, just an overall great taste.

“Great Food-Service not so much”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Not sure what happen since last time we were there but they have downsized a bit. They no longer have the large dining. They have a small carry out place with about 4 booths and 3 tables. I was a bit suprised, but we decided to eat and had Firecracker Shrimp (very good) Shrimp Springrolls (very good) and then we had the rice noodle salad with beef and a cut up eggroll on top (it was very good). I ordered Bahn-Mi, that was not so good. Very sparse and dry and no pate on it....just bread, 4 pieces of meat, cilantro, and marinated daikon and carrot medicore at best.
The service lacked, I am not sure if there are new owners???? But it did not have the same feeling to it at all as to when we would go before. I hope I hit at an off time/day as well.

“Extensive Vietnamese menu, excellent food and service.”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We went in a party of four while traveling through Joliet. Only one of us had ever eaten Vietnamese food before. The wait staff was patient and friendly. We had spring rolls, which were amazing, and several types of pho and rice-based dishes. Very nice!

“THIS PLACE NEEDS A UPDATED MENU”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

.
With all the new age Vietnamese food the world has to offer this place needs to get with it!!Food was good but luke warm at best. The decor was way simple. The Pho was good as were the spring rolls but the rest of the menu needs a little work. Sorry!!!!But I"ll try it again maybe just an off day.
