The Hung Snake restaurant was founded in 1997. The restaurant is mostly made by good wood, eight roofs with ancient features by the famous sculptor. The family-restaurant model is warm, friendly, intimate and hospitable. The profession of catching, breeding and processing snakes have been preserved through four generations, so we can be proud of being one of the few restaurants having the oldest tradition in the village with ancient values. Coming here, visitors will enjoy many kinds of snakes. Play with snake, eat 11 snake dishes with free drinks.
