We came here late in a rainy day for lunch... Nonetheless they served us efficiently and diligently. The cao lau was good as expected (was recommended by bloggers), the white rose flavourful and everything felt very homely. Also love the warn fresh ginger tea. Overall, it's well worth the price (only 130k VND in total!) And I would definitely recommend... More

I really enjoyed the dinner on my last night in Hoi An. The service was very quick and thorough. They made sure a fan was there to cool me as I enjoyed moderate priced beer and food. The taste and quality of the food was great, especially considering the seemingly low prices. The ambiance was simple and comfortable, not flashy.

Our tour guide bought us here for dinner after a busy day of sightseeing. Our guide Man ordered for us so we had no idea what was coming but everything was so good! All really fresh, and tasty. Definitely worth a visit.

Me and my girlfriend ended up here by chance while we were looking for another restaurant. The young staff working there were really nice. The food was so fresh and delicious. What you get for this price is amazing!

Our local guide selected this restaurant for local Vietnamese cuisine and we weren't disappointed. The food was amazing and the atmosphere relaxing. It was in an alley, just outside of the busy Hoi An center. Would definitely eat here again!

In the evening in Hoi An, the racket can soletimes be a bit much, and you may long to escape to a quieter place. We found such a place in a narrow side lane. Outdoor seating on bamboo chairs, a lot of choice of well prepared Vietnamese dishes.

My parents and I came to this secluded restaurant for dinner with our private tour guide (who is a Hoi An local) so it was not surprising that we felt like eating like a local at very reasonable prices. We had the usual Hoi An specialties, including white rose, fried wonton with shrimp and Cao Lau (a noodle dish only... More
