Our first night in Hue was spent here. The service was very good and the food was fantastic. Though this place offers Mexican and western food we opted, quite rightly for Vitenamese food. If I wanted Mexican food I would have gone to Mexico, right!...More

I'm from Texas and this restaurant in Vietnam was better than most Tex-Mex places I've had back home. Obviously not authentic, but it's the best it gets after traveling in Asia for 2 weeks. It was like coming up for fresh air. Had the mango...More
