Stayed in Hue a few years ago & came here numerous times & loved their food. We were passing thru Hue & found it again luckily. Great food, cheap prices.

Came here after reading such great reviews. Weren't disappointed; food was cheap - as cheap as 20,000 dong! But also some delicious dishes for far less than they are worth. Also get a shake, super cheap but super tasty. Would definitely come back.

We just eat at Phuong Nam Cafe and it was really good. Tasty dishes for a super good price. As a vietnamese, i've to admit that the Banh Loc there is better than my mom's ! Highly recommended

Smoothies were outstanding at 15,000 VND with over 50 varieties to choose from. The coffee shake got me through a lot of rough mornings I would highly recommend it. Beers are also cheap. Food ranges in 30-40,000 range with some more expensive dishes reaching 50,000 VND. The bun bo is to die for. Their bread is served warm and soft.... More

Staying at the Jade Hotel in Hue, this family restaurant is a 5 minute walk around the corner. Friendly, cheap and fresh tasty food. The chilli chicken was great as are the smoothies. Worth a try!

Stopped here for lunch on our tour with Hue Riders. Food is great and ridiculously inexpensive. We had Vietnamese spring rolls, pho and shakes. The mango shake was my highlight but it was all delicious. Certainly not a fancy joint but great lunch stop.

We had a delicious diner at Phuong Nam Cafe. We tested some Hue specialities like Nem Lui and Shrimp pancakes. The smoothies were very good too and very cheap. The staff is careful and friendly.

The fresh fruit shakes are an absolute treat! The food is good, with quick service. There are a lot of items on the menu, which can make chosing your meal daunting. Prices are fair, you get good value for money. All in all, this restaurant is a great contender.

I'm sad we discovered this place on the last night. Great prices, yummy vegetarian and beef dishes. Mango and shrimp salad so flavourful. Good price for beer and juices. Don't hesitate to check it out!!!

We were brought here for lunch by our Hue Riders motorbike tour guides, so did not know what to expect, however the food here is actually fantastic and very cheap. The menu says they serve the best smoothies and lassies in Hue- a bold claim but actually when it arrived, I couldn't argue! And at only 15k dong, even better!... More
