Ancient Hue, Vietnam

4/4/8 Lane 35, Pham Thi Lien Street
Hue, Vietnam
Tel: 84 5 459 0356

Finding this Hue restaurant down a quiet lane near Thien Mu Pagoda is an adventure in itself. The five-acre compound feels like a step back in time to a Nguyen dynasty palace with a centerpiece open-air dining room. The raised, wooden pavilion quotes the lines of the Citadel's Peace Palace with imperial touches like a lotus pond, bronze urns, and red silk tablecloths. The menu mixes Mediterranean and Vietnamese flavors resulting in dishes like steak with grilled tomatoes, zucchini, and couscous-stuffed bananas. Save room for the homemade ice cream, especially fruit flavors like mango and mangosteen, then peruse the on-site art gallery housed in an antique home.

Open daily 9 am to 11 pm.
