Our customer brought us to Khong Gian Xua Restaurant for lunch, a popular restaurant in Hue with an ancient ambiance setting. The presentation of the Hue cuisine is refined, served in small serving size in small bowls different to other parts of Vietnam that typically serve the food in big bowls.

We were looking for La pines but found this and..(we tried pines later) sooo much better. Place is so beautifully decorated, authentiek look and very very good food. Service impeccable...they enjoy when you enjoy...and it shows. Try the Pineapple Spring rolls and other traditional food. About 10 minutes walk from Pilgrimage Village.

The interiors and exteriors of the place resemble rich Vietnamese decoration with plenty of wood. A nice fine dining restaurant with typical Vietnamese finger food and other Vietnamese food. I liked the food, no differentiating factor from other Vietnamese food though.

Very good dishes, kind of traditional meals in Vietnam. Reasonable price and nice restaurant. Quick service too. But the drinks wasn't great.

A great atmosphere when I first came. Staffs are friendly and foods taste good. Price is reasonable. I visited the restaurant with my friend and a couple of times with my family. This is a suitable place for warming dinner with family.

Disappointed that our hotel La Residence recommended this restaurant. We noticed that the restaurant was empty, at 9pm... Should have changed the plan at that moment but didn't think the hotel would steer us wrong. Service (rating 4.5) was friendly and decor (rating 4.5) is definitely more upscale and nice. Food was decent (rating 3.5). Pricing per dish is pretty... More

Bad service. Once you sit down. They brought out 5, 6 little dishes. Sort of like the little dishes in Korean restaurants. The difference is that the Korean restaurants do not charge you. Here they charge you most of the little dishes without telling you in advance. It's a total ripoff. Never come back again
