The Colonial Experience

Hue, not only known as the world's most culturally significant travel destination, but also the center of culinary art and gastronomy. During the Nguyen dynasty, 1802-1945, the 13 Emperors beckoned all of the best known chefs to their Citadel to create culinary magic for their palates which is why out of around 3000 National Dishes, Hue is the home to roughly 2000.

Le Parfum fine dining restaurant abides by two mottos; firstly, “the origin”: we do not choose the obvious, but carefully select products which imply a deeper knowledge of each dish and its story; and secondly” taste and share”: our carefully selected local & international products unite to awaken the palate & nourish our guest's imagination. The service staff, including our talented chef, share the cuisines history, legends and origins.

La Residence is proud to offer unique celebrated gastronomic experiences to cater for our guests culinary intrigue.
