Nice food for a good price. Staff could have spoken a bit better english, but it is understandable since mostly locals go here. We went here a second time.

So glad we found this place. We looked around the area, but this was certainly the best option for us - we went there for dinner 3 times! This restaurant is used mainly by locals but we were made very welcome. In fact we felt well looked-after and the service was excellent. Also the food was very good and very... More

It's very close to Ben Thanh market. If you google the address, look for the sun glass store and walk down that alley. You will pass through the outdoor nail salons and it will be on the left side. I have been to this restaurant on both of my visits. For Hue food, it's very good. I know people have... More

We were recommended to this restaurant by locals so we went in search of it. Is right behind some corners so do follow your GPS. Local Settings, no air con. Many locals came here to eat. We tried their recommendation. Quite nice and unique.

Hidden behind the front road building, this little gem has some amazing food. More expensive then street food but so authentic. Perfect if you tired of soups etc. so glad we found it!

As others have noted, this restaurant is down an alley off of Le Thanh Ton Street, but that is nothing to worry about. There are many more businesses there, nail salons and so forth. We find a delicacy and sophistication in the flavors here. Top quality ingredients are used. One of our favorites is the Hue-style fish and udon noodle... More

Some have claimed that this has the best bun bo hue so we tried, so not the case. The soup came out luke warm, the soup was diluted and it was definitely below par. I would not recommend if you are after a good bun bo hue. We've had better back in Australia!

This restaurant is recommended by bloggers. We came to this restaurant when the Bep Me In Restaurant was full. These 2 restaurants are on the same lane opposite the Ben Thanh market and near to Thanh Bin shop. There are 2 shop lotts, next to each other. As we were having 2 young children with us, we were ushered to... More
