The place was mentioned in a guide with a pretty good review. What a disappointment! We waited for ages until the waiter acknowledged our existence, and even longer for the food once we ordered. The food was not even good. It wasn't bad. But it...More

The food here rapidly became our favorite in all of Hoi An. Delicious and fresh, nothing on the menu dissapoints. The owners are friendly and locals and tourists alike visit. Cooking classes are offered and there is "fresh beer" for 3k VDN per glass.

This is a simple place right outside of the old town of Hoi An, with a very comprehensive menu and totally affordable. The tofu cooked in banana leaves was amazing.

Came here 3 years ago and the food is just as good as I remembered. The chicken curry is unbelievable, and you cant go wrong with the 15 cent beers!

Hello Nancette, From memory, the price of the cooking class was pretty reasonable. I think the conversion rate between the pound and the Vietnamese dong would be very much in your favour. The dress code is very casual... More
