This is an announcement that the owner of Phuong Nam Cafe asked to write to help : "The restaurant is now relocated for a year as Hué city is going through renovation in Tran Cao Van Street. It is now relocated to 181 Xuan 68,...More

It's recommended in the guide book, we wouldn't have got there otherwise because it's quite dirty and smell like stinky tofu but it's excellent ! So cheap and good to eat ! But the French owner of the garden river told us it will close...More

We stopped here to have lunch, and I think this might be another restaurant that has high Tripadvisor reviews, but also seems to cater to the less adventurous tourist. The menu had a lot of dishes I would expect to find on a Westernized Chinese...More

If the locals aren't eating there, you shouldn't either. I know this, but we were hungry. The bun bo hue wasn't anywhere near as good as what I ate the next night outside of Dong Ba market. The smoothie was unremarkable. You can find better...More

Don't walk past this place. We ate here every night after our first visit. Delicious food and fruit shakes are awesome and ridiculously cheap. It's also a bit out of the touristy part so you don't get bothered while you eat.
