Tried this place out as it was just down the road from where we stayed. Dinner here was awesome! The host was very accommodating. She showed us how to eat banh xeo (Vietnamese pancake) properly and also organised a driver to take us to Da Nang airport at a very reasonable price as we were unsure on how to get... More

Truly authentic as they don't speak a word of English! Ordering food and drinks was a laugh, and in the end we just went with the flow. Got 2 tasty dishes but wouldn't be able to order the same again. Cheap prices we really enjoyed the experience but could see why it wouldn't suit everyone.

We have eaten lunch here after having seen the restaurant very crowded for dinner the previous evening. Food is just average: the pho was OK, the chicken rice which should actually be the speciality of Hoi An was bland and tasteless, just plain yellow boiled rice without any taste, some boiled chicken, fresh onions and a spoon of some vegetables...

The food is cheap but taking into account that the portions are very small, it is not an extremely good value for money. We had the quang noodles and the lau cau which were ok. The chicken rice had no taste. We had to add a lot of soy sauce to make it edible. On the plus side, the dishes... More

We stumbled on Restaurant Dung, and because it was so good, we went back, taking friends, several times. Eat the Com Ga, the Cao Lau, the Banh Xeo. Eat anything the friendly staff suggests. It is not a fancy restaurant, it's a place the locals eat, and is very comfortable and delicious.

The restaurant served a wide variety of good local dishes at non-tourist prices, eventhough it is within a very short distance of the old town. Relaxed atmosphere, and good interaction with owner .

Often when I have friends who do not know the Vietnamese kitchen, I take them to Dung. They have a big room, but in front two tables where it is nice to sit, close to the street and all the others whom are passing by feet, bicycle, motorbike, cyclo, taxi or plane. Without asking what they want, I always take... More
