I waited years to finally eat at the Mandarin Cafe with Mr. Cu and his family, and they did not disappoint. Its been the favorite spot for my colleagues since it opened. It has a fairly even mixture of Western and Vietnamese choices and all are very good. Prices are very good, the atmosphere is very welcoming. Mr. Cu and his family are extremely welcoming and nice to talk to, both about daily life in Hue and any questions about traveling. Mr. Cu's photos decorate both floors of this cafe and are very moving and beautiful--they give a good insight into the spirit of Hue. They are available for purchase and make wonderful gifts or just a reminder of the beauty of Vietnam. This cafe is a good refuge when traveling becomes exhausting: spending time at the Mandarin Cafe felt like being home with good friends. Make sure to order the banana pancakes for dessert!
