We enjoyed the food, the service was excellent and we got a 10-minute tour of the place that's set up to look like what ancient homes in Hue used to be - so a little history and some art too.

Ancient Hue (not to be confused with Ancient Town) is out of the way, so you'll need a taxi driver who knows where it is, but it's not so far and taxis are cheap so it's easily worth the trip. It's a group of spacious traditional style buildings surrounding a garden. There's an imperial menu, an a la carte menu,... More

Amid a private visiting session, our guide took my family to this restaurant for lunch. Strolling up a couple of stairs to the eatery, we entered a wonderful garden range. The inside eatery setting was exquisite and nourishment extremely delightful. After lunch, we visited the all around kept up and great garden house in which the eatery dwells. This was... More

This place is wonderful. You require a taxicab to arrive, however it will inspire you to see an alternate part of the city. It was calm when we went, certainly did not require a reservation. The staff was a highlight, charming and proficient. My significant other had a fish dish, and it was flavorful. I had the illustrious tasting menu,... More

This large restaurant has several separate dining rooms, which used to be separate houses, spread around a lovely ornamental garden. The dining areas are large and airy, with very high ceilings, dark wood columns and dark panelling on the walls. Tables can be arranged to suit smaller or larger parties, and there are areas with comfortable sofas and armchairs for... More

My wife and I, both seniors, had lunch at Ancient Hue a few weeks ago as part of our tour. The setting of the place is an old house, behind the Catholic school in Hue. The gardens and house are beautiful and so was the Vietnamese set menu. A beautiful experience which we highly recommend.
