We stopped here for a couple of Hudas (local beer) and watched the people walking by. It is located in a busy part of the restaurant district of Hue, so plenty to see. Good service and good prices.

We came for the two for one cocktails and ended up having a few more than we planned - the service was great and the atmosphere was very relaxed and not too loud like a few other nearby restaurants. When we came back we had the banana pancakes for dessert, which I would definitely recommend to every traveler.

Nothing special. Just Asian food with a European twist. You should stay away from the clothing shop inside unless you want to spend some money on some hand painted skirts or such - great gift for your sweetheart ;)

I went to Hot Tuna for a quick round of drinks. Unfortunately my drink was served in a glass with several chips/cracks one of which was covered up with the garnish. Considering the fact that there are numerous other great places around, I can't recommend this place whatsoever.

Group of us eat at HoT Tuna after walking past and being tempted by happy hour. Staff are lovely, food is good, prices are good too. There's WiFi and a big choice of cocktails. A good place to eat whilst your here.

went here twice (once for lunch and once for diner) and both times we enjoyed it. almost the whole staff speaks english (pretty good actually) and they all are very friendly. the food is good and the prices are attractive. besides that, they got a good choice of beers and well priced cocktails. probably going back there for lunch tomorrow.

Awesome staff and owner. All spoke good English which was a bonus. Went here 3 times during our 3 day stay in Hue, twice just for drinks and once for lunch ( food was awesome). Staff were chatty and owner in photo come and chatted as well. We were there at Halloween hence the pumpkin carving. We do highly recommend.

My fiance and I stumbled upon this place and having been in Vietnam for 2 weeks already, we can say it was one of the best meals we've had in this country. Great value for money. Lien Nguyen was the friendliest waitress we met on our whole trip! Such wonderful service! Definitely recommend the Vietnamese menu

Had been eating vietnamese food for weeks, I thought that it was time for a burger. Tasted like a 50cent microwave burger. The Pho was good, so my advice is to stick with the local food here.

I ate here a few times during my stay and was happy with it. It´s in convenient location near all the hotels and shops, and the open design is very inviting, a good place to chill and watch the world go by. I had the grilled tuna and it was very good. They also do beef hotpot. The vietnamese coffee... More
