Nice location and setting, staff friendly and helpful, is more expensive- but you are on the prime river strip. My partner had duck Pho, was not warm and made him violently ill. I had Bahn My which was good.

Nice location by the river. Mains cost around 300 VND here. Meal was good and fresh but not excellent and staff rather under average - not so friendly like in other restaurants in Vietnam. Even in relatively expensive Hoi An you can get the same for half price.

Just stopped for a quick spot of lunch. As we are both not big eaters I ordered the beef soup and my wife a fruit salad. The soup came with all the trimmings and was very tasty, the beef was tender. The fruit salad was as requested watermelon and pineapple and of a good size. Not the cheapest place to... More

This place has a bangen cocktail lists and a happy hour thats good to your wallet. We visited her twice for pre-dinner cocktails and were not once disappointed with the drinks. The restaurant was however a little lacking in atmosphere and whilst their was plenty of staff on, the service was pretty non-existant.

The restaurant has the most lovely outside terrace with a beautiful view over the river. We enjoyed a tasty selection of starters, including very good white rose dumplings and spring rolls. We shared mains of fish in banana leaf, tofu noodles and duck leg curry. All were pleasant enough but not memorable. We were surprised when we got the bill... More

I randomly got into this restaurant for a quick dinner with my mom tonight, while taking a walk in the Ancient Town. We ordered a seafood salad, beef pho and a duck pho. Both pho are way below average, as the beef was hard like a piece of rubber, with the broth tasted a bit sweet (which is kinda abnormal)... More

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Went for lunch and back for dinner. This was the BEST Cao Lau noodles I had in Hoi An. Drinks were nice. Fans were plentiful and did the trick. very pleasant for an evening meal.

The food here is the best we have had and we have been greeted with an icy cold wet towelettes on both occasions. Lunch yesterday was a Banh Mi and it was beautiful. Today we went back and had local dishes; Bong Hong Trang or white rose dumplings followed by Ban Xeo Sai Gon a crispy pancake filled with bean... More

This restaurant is away from the main tourist streets, just a little ways beyond the Japanese bridge and is a real find! Apparently owned by the same people behind the much lauded Mango Mango, but in my opinion I would prefer to come here due to the location. The garden overlooks the river and is epicly pretty at night. The... More

We wanted to try Banh Mi, which is a local street food, but a little concerned about some street vendors and the refrigeration of meats they serve. We saw the staff preparing the Banh Mi in a precision like process, in a very clean environment in this cafe, which is in the older part of town. They tasted great. Beers... More
