We had a couple of evening meals here and really enjoyed it. The food was cheap (as was the beer) and tasty, the staff were very friendly and, as others have mentioned, the corner location was great for watching the world go by. Highly recommended.

Overcooked food and not very tasty. Cheap beer and good coffee though. Wouldn't recommend as there are better places in the area.

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.
