My Vietnamese friend took us here for dinner. The place is small but has a very nice ambiance and mood. Food style featured is mainly from Hue. Again the highlight was to try the Crab Noodles. It's a small portion but delicious. The noodles was different, thick cut and almost having like a jelly texture to it. The broth was... More

My wife and I thought we knew Vietnamese food. Well, not quite. The menu here was different and good, 'hue'. We went there due to tripadvisor reviews. No regrets, good food, great waiter, simple but effective decor.

My Vietnamese friend took us here for dinner. They make traditional food from Hue. It was great, service was good staff friendly and food was fast to table. It tasted delicious. We were happy waiting here and will return next time in hcmc.

Stumbled upon this little gem on Google maps while wandering the back streets of Ben Thanh market. The wait staff were very friendly and the restaurant a lovely (cooling) place. I had a bowl of Ban Canh Cua (crab and pork noodles) and they did not disappoint! The broth was a mix of sweet, sour and salty, and I finished... More

Loved the unique tastes and quick bites of the Hue Style. Set in a lane near Ben Thanh Market, unexpected. Good for a quick lunch, not so suitable for dinner.

A friend who's been here has always wanted to take me to this spot. Always proclaiming about the Crab Noodles and skewered pork. Finally had the chance to visit it. Very near Benh Tanh Market but you have to go through an alley then you'll find it. I like that fact that it's obscured. Went pretty late at night so... More

Simple light lunch during the week for me with grilled pork rolls, iced tea and agar jelly all up for 55k dong. Rolls were small but full of taste and freshly made. Agar jelly was slightly sweet (not sickly sweet) and nice too. Service was excellent and very quick. I had my food before I could take my phone out... More

Visited this place with the wife after recommendations from our hotel. Place is not easy to find; have to turn down a small alley even though street address is on main road. Small, humble and full of locals. Specialises in Hue style food (central Viet). Small menu which I like as it usually means that what you get they know... More
