Located down a little side back street in Ancient Hue along a stream sustaining into the Perfumed River, this eatery was elusive - however was justified regardless of the hunt.

This restaurant was amazing. Absolutely amazing food, great staff and lovely cocktails too. There were alot of options for non veg. Veg options were limited. However, what they did have was well worth the 70,000 DONG taxi fare.

Very nicely done up decor, buildings and garden. Food is extraordinary, its comparable to fine dining at a fraction of the costs. Service is very good. Its location is slightly off the main road and it is worth the trip.

The staff were very attentive and welcoming, the food was fresh and delicious, I was most surprised, but delighted, when the girls entered with a cake, whilst... More

This restaurant is of relatively modern origin, built to look like an older Vietnamese home and its compound. It is pretty, but rather noisy. We were disappointed with the food; we'd had much better in Vietnam. Though nothing wrong with it, it just wasn't up to the quality and taste standards of other restaurants we visited.

Ancient and historical restaurant once owned by a loyal family related to the Citadel Palace. The restaurant is gorgeously decorated and elegantly furnished. The food is delicious too. Probably the best restaurant the whole of Vietnam.
