I was having dinner with my parents. I am really impressed by its service and absolutely delicious Vietnamese cuisine. Will definitely come again.

I honestly don't know how this excellent restaurant is not ranked higher on this site. Nestled in a small impasse not far from the Opera, this two-level house is quiet, with extremely efficient and helpful staff that are used to welcoming foreign patrons. The menu is varied, with delicious dishes from all over Vietnam at quite reasonable prices. The decor... More

I love this restaurant! I was introduced to it by a Vietnamese lady friend about 3 years ago and I have going ever since. I take both Vietnamese and foreigners and everyone likes it! The atmosphere is good, the food is good and the service is excellent! Reasonably priced with a mammoth selection. Access to the restaurant is not the... More

A beautiful old building down a side alley behind the Opera House. Like walking back in time. Traditional Hue cuisine from central Vietnam. Nicely presented. 3 rooms on two floors. Very tasty & reasonably priced.

We had the vegetarian set menu. Food was amazing and some of the best vegetarian food we had in Vietnam. Server was quite concerned about making sure the vegetarians didn't have any meat products and almost jumped across table when one picked some tofu out of one of the meat dishes. Only issue we had was we were with a... More

We went for lunch and had their set menu which consisted of rice paper roll with shrimps, bamboo shoot salad mixed with shrimp & pork, saute tofu with mushroom and stir fried morning glory. Very well cooked and presented. Only the a/c was not good enough. Was sweating thru the meal. Overall a good experience.

Tucked off the beaten path in a alley that only comes alive at night you'll find this place. Nice clean quiet inside. Large helpings of authentic south Vietnamese style food. We had 4 entrees (way to much) and all were very good. Just as we thought we were finished with our meal and ready to pay the bill an order... More

I had a good experience with this one, but I don't like that the staff vave people in from the street. The chicken and cashew nuts tastes great. So does some of the other Vietnamese dishes. It's maybe not the best place to go, but definitely not the worse.
