Very tasty cheap food

Great variety and incredible value. The food was delicious. The sesame jackfruit and kimchi hotpot were standouts.

I really didn’t expect this place to be open, as there haven’t been any reviews since 2020, but as it was really close to my homestay I thought I would pop in. I’m so glad I did! Best vegan meal in Hue! Other places sell themselves as all fancy, or cater to the tourist market, but this is authentic eat-at-home vegan Vietnamese (and Korean!) food, and it’s delicious! Don’t be put off by the menus only in Vietnamese, that’s what Google translate is for! Cheap, yummy, lovely patient staff with big smiles. WIN, WIN, WIN.

Very good local food - for 5 dishes (spring rolls, 2x Ban Xeo, Rice Cake with green beans and jackfruit with sesame) we just paid 90k 🙊😳 - 3,6€ for all of these and it was delicious.
Lovely people all around and a nice authentic atmosphere.

Lovely staff, but questionable food

Lovely warm welcome from our host - my partner and I ordered the "crispy fried spaghetti" and com dia for dinner. The food arrived within 5 minutes, which was slightly questionable, and my rice plate was lukewarm (possibly sitting out from lunchtime?). When I reached the bottom of the plate, I found a dead fly buried underneath the rice...

We also ordered an order of spring rolls, which are actually fresh rice paper rolls (delicious, but not what we thought we were ordering). For 80k in total (with two soft drinks), the food was superbly cheap and plentiful, and the server lovely, but the hygiene was really off-putting.

Pros: Good vegan options, Lovely staff, Cheap food

Cons: Food hygiene , Some translation confusion on menu

Great staff, okay food.

The menu doesn't look appetising. I found it really hard to make a decision.
The staff are absolutely beautiful and do everything to make sure you're okay with everything. I got the mushroom tempura and a soup noodle dish and it was okay.

Amazing hot pot

Lovely little place just a short walk out of the main tourist area. The locals eating there seemed to be mainly ordering hot pot so we thought we would too. Had the kimchi hot pot for 70k between two of us and it did not disappoint. Absolutely gorgeous.

Delightful local vegetarian restaurant!!

This truly delightful restaurant is located just across the bridge from the bustling town. It’s about a 5 minutes away and it’s like entering a different universe. It’s bustling with locals and smells divine.

Food wise we were absolutely spoilt for choice. We asked someone for recommendations and were told to try the jackfruit mixed with sesame (mit tron me) and the mushroom fried with dough (nam phich bot). Both were super tasty.

We also ordered the Kimchi hot pot, which i can’t recommend enough. We were given a jug of tea to accompany our meal. It was super refreshing.

I want to say this is the best place I’ve eaten since being in Vietnam!

Pros: Lovely staff , Absolutely amazing food , Great prices

Cons: Absolutely nothing

Great joint favored by locals.

We enjoyed this low cost, delicious restaurant our first night in Hué. Friendly staff. Some spoke English. Provided us an English menu, but It was as updated as the Vietnamese version. Still easy to order. Lots of locals coming and going, including some that were exceptionally welcoming to us as tourists. Store front is open and it looks out over the river. So we got great views and people watching while enjoying the comfort of the overhead fan they switched on near our table. Great prices for a sit down restaurant.

Pros: Prices, Friendly staff, Good Atmosphere

Peaceful, happy, delicious.

This restaurant is a delight. Not too busy with customers, quiet music and helpful staff. Ate a mixed salad ( lettuce, sautéed fresh tomato and sliced tofu with a balsamic like dressing) 20,000; jackfruit with mint and toasted sesame seed 20,000; fried spring rolls 35,000. All delicious. The complimentary cold tea is refreshing and slightly sweet. Staff all happily making bun loc together in the restaurant. Also the waiter specially used his phone translator to ask if we wanted steamed rice with the meal or not.
Extensive menu.
A very clean space and lovely walk 5 minutes away from bustling downtown Hue over the river. Recommended.

Pros: Delicious, freshly prepared dishes., Good value - financially, ethically, friendly., Clean, modest, quiet space.

Cons: None.

Cons: Not 100% vegan.

Great place, honest folks

Note: I’m not sure what their hours are, but they are open until at least 4pm, and probably later. I came around 3:45pm for my meal, and they still seemed pretty active by the time I left. If it’s anything like other restaurants in the area, I would guess they are open from 6 or 7am until 6 or 7pm.

Great place just a short and beautiful walk across the river from the main tourist area. I came for a late breakfast of Pho Nuoc. I really enjoyed the noodle soup. The broth was tasty with good herbal flavors, and the noodles were textured so they took up the broth really nicely.
Moreover, the women here are really nice and honest. I accidentally paid them 102,000 dong (instead of 12,000 dong) and starting walking obliviously back across the river. However, when they noticed me on the road, they immediately shouted and chased after me. It was quite an embarrassing mistake, and they were very kind to ensure I got the correct change. We had a good laugh about it in the kitchen as they were counting out the remaining bills. Reallly pleasant and honest folks.
I’d highly recommend trying this place. The food was good, it’s not too far from the main part of town, and it’s a good excuse to take a nice scenic stroll across the river.

Update: I came back in the afternoon and had Pho Kho, which was nice. It had the same noodles as the Pho Nuoc but no soup. Instead, it came topped with some tofu, herbs, and sprouts, and it was accompanied by a red sauce for pouring over the noodles. It was very nice and fresh.

Nice vegan food at a good price

Nice and clean vegan restaurant. The women who work there, don't speak English but you can ask for an English menu. The food is ok, you can found small dishes from 10.000 to 40.000 dong. We loved the Bánh Gói, if you have chance try it!

Pros: clean, cheap, good environments

Cons: there aren't Buffet
