We were recommended to this restaurant by locals so we went in search of it. Is right behind some corners so do follow your GPS. Local Settings, no air con. Many locals came here to eat. We tried their recommendation. Quite nice and unique.

As others have noted, this restaurant is down an alley off of Le Thanh Ton Street, but that is nothing to worry about. There are many more businesses there, nail salons and so forth.

This restaurant is recommended by bloggers. We came to this restaurant when the Bep Me In Restaurant was full. These 2 restaurants are on the same lane opposite the Ben Thanh market and near to Thanh Bin shop. There are 2 shop lotts, next to each other.

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.

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.
