Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Located near gate into imperial Palace we had lunch here before meeting our tour guide. All the staff are part of one family and they create a great vibe in their place - even showing us old photos of the restaurant. Must try the fresh...made crispy pancake- WOW so good I wanted more. Local beer at 15k - cheapest we found in Hue. Spring rolls,fresh shrimp rolls ,stir fry vegetables with crispy noodles and banana pancakes with chocolate sauce . Add 3 big ,cold beers and all for 280k. Party trick to open the beers a surprise. Amazing place 👏More

clean but a restaurant for tourists. i've eaten local food all the time since my family is from vietnam and the portions are way too small. the food tastes alright if not a bit too salty for me. for me, it's not worth it. me...and my family feel scammed. it is crowded with tourists and no locals as well. i have seen vietnamese people lead tourists as guides here to eat but it's really not worth it. i guess it's fine if you want to eat there and try some vietnamese food but i wouldn't define the food there as delicious.More

This place has got recommendations both from Tripadvisor and Lonely Planet. They’ve even had professional signs put up to show for it and it’s so easy to fall into these kind of places when you travel, in stead of having a good look around before...you sit down to eat at a street cafe. In our opinion the food at Lac Thien is bland and not very tasting or interesting. Just average. I think they might be floating in a wave of good reviews and they don’t have time to make sure that every meal they serve is good. Find somewhere else!More

From the moment we parked our bikes we felt very welcome to Lac Thien restaurant. They offer local specialties at very good prices and if you are lucky you may be able to witness a special beer opening technique being performed. The food was so...good! So far one of my favourite restaurants in Vietnam.More

Best restaurant in Hue! The food is amazing but the atmosphere is even better. It is a family ran restaurant who looked after us. The mother and son were great at showing us table tricks and were very funny! Would 100% recommend a visit here.

Fantastic food and the people are the team are superstars. Order lots of the pancakes, you won’t regret it - but all the dishes are winners, just let them know how hungry you are and let them order for you. Great atomosphere too, lots of...smiles on both the customers and staff.More

Great food and friendly owner who is the 3rd generation running the place. It was very close to the old citadel which makes us a convenient place to stop and get something to eat.

Possibly the worst Place i've been eating in 2weeks of Vietnam. Apart from the big cockroach in the toilet,that makes It exotic doesn't It, they brought incomplete and very poor dishes. Suggestion: don't go since there are honest and cleaner places all around. Oh i...forgot about the ants in the plate. They were not in our orders either. A scamMore
