This is an excellent reataurant in an off the beaten path rural road. It was suggested by our guide and had an exquisite setting. Food was great, as most is in Vietnam, however genuinely costly. The service was fabulous, yet the place was truly peacful.

The food is amazing and the place is like the real Vietnam in old days. The staff is wonderful and they explain with patience all about the place.

We did not eat most of the dishes . They decorate the food nicely. But the tastes are not good. So , my suggestion-... More

Great decor when you walk in, feels like going into a ancient Asian palace garden. Staffs were also very welcoming. Food was not bad.

This place could be a gold mine, if.... But let's start from the beginning. The dinner was meant as a farewell dinner of friends, a good mix between Vietnamese, Viet-Khieu and Europeans, 16 people in all. My wife, a friend and I arrived in a pouring rain, after our taxi driver, who obviously didn't know the place, had driven us... More

Beautifully set out place classic Vietnamese buildings , furniture and decor. Food is also classic Hue style spot on for presentation and taste. The set menu of 5 to 6 dishes provides a range of food types and is worth a try. Not expensive considering quality and service.

It is an exceptional environment, almost like a luxury private residence or club. The food is okay in term of taste, nicely decorated. The price is of course expensive, as it is suitable for such environment. We went in as a large group. Would I recommend? Probably, it was almost the last day of our trip in Vietnam, and everyone...

The restaurant is a bit out of the town but the garden setting and old style restaurant is incredible. Unfortunately the food did not match. We ordered caramelised pork which was bland and Tiger prawns which had a nice sauce but by the time we peeled them the sauce had gone. The staff are not very experienced and we ordered... More

After the hectic bustle of Hue, this was a welcome oasis in a gorgeous setting, with outstanding service. The food was high end, compatible to Michelin standard albeit Vietnamese imperial cooking. I went with my mother and we were both extremely happy with their standard all around. I would recommend it for couples, (it's very romantic!) and families of all... More
