I broke two cardinal rules in going to this restaurant: If you're eating 'ethnic' food, don't go to a place where there are no diners from that ethnic group; and don't visit restaurants that can't make up it's mind what cuisine it's serving. But we were recommended this establishment by our guide, who is local, so we gave it a... More

We decided to have dinner here based on other reviews on trip advisor. The actual restaurant was very charming and cozy inside. Mostly filled with expats from Spain, Germany, Australia, and US. The menu consisted of a collection of unique mixture of Vietnamese, Italian, and other Asian dishes. The were very few French menu items listed. The wine selection was... More

We ate here 3 times while visiting Hue. After the first visit we had to keep coming back. The food is excellent and the staff is friendly and attentive. We particularly liked the fish cooked with lemongrass.

The atmosphere inside is great and the food was very delicious. I had the beef wrapped in leaves with a fish sauce. A different night I had the grilled chicken with lemongrass. The soup was really good too. The staff did a great job recommending some of their best dishes. They also have a helpful iPad with photos of all... More

Another wonderful restaurant in Vietnam. I felt like I was eating all the time, but never had a bad meal. Some were different from what I am used to but still good food.

I ordered the vietnam dinner set menu for 200,000 VD and I found a long piece of hair in my noodles. Very disgusting and the waitress took the dish away immediately when I showed her. Didn't even apologize for it. Not impressed with the food overall, but some of them weren't too bad. 1. First dish was the pho looking... More

Recommended by our tour guide and visited on both nights of our 2 night stay. I had prawns with lemongrass and chilli, not too spicy and so delicious my husband ordered them on our second visit. He had steak cooked to perfection (first visit). The mixed fried vegetables were just perfect with my chicken. Not expensive. Lovely girl waitresses.

We had the 5 course tasting menu (one) which was delicious!! Our only gripe was that we were in and out in less than 1hr and 15 mins! Super speedy, would have been nicer to linger for longer :)

Thank Eilidh H
