This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel (just opposite) and when we popped our heads in one evening, a couple of Australians highly recommended the food and they spoke of this Neville chappie. So we decided to come back the following evening. My son ordered a banana smoothie and it was amazing and it was presented in a... More

half way between town and the beach in Hoi An on the main road, you can find lattice paper spring rolls, magnificent fried shrimp in butter and garlic (big king prawns), duck in orange sauce, chicken in tamarind sauce, the specialities are very special indeed. If you want to make your life really easy, just ask for Nevilles menu (aka... More

This restaurant was definitely the best out of all the places we ate in Hoi An (over a week), no doubt about it. The sign 'slow food' outside caught our eye as we were bicycling past on the beach road, and intrigued by the concept of slow Vietnamese food, we stopped. We weren't disappointed - the food was fabulous. Fresh,... More

Me and my girlfriend visited a lot of 'gay-friendly' places and restaurants in Vietnam, and this was one of the best experiences we had. The location is somewhat impractical, right between the town and the beach, so really neither here nor there, but it is well worth a trip or stopping on your way. We both love spring-rolls, so we...

Good food; good ambience and good pricing. You have to go a bit out of Hoi An towards the beach area. It is on the left side of the road seen from Hoi An.

We returned hungry from the beach on our bicycles, and we dropped by this little spot, very good lunch and fantastic smoothie!

Been here for lunch, the food was delicious and the staff is really friendly and help full! You'll find good local food as well as western food, but mainly seafood. Try the Papaya Salad :-)

We were recommended to go to this restaurant and weren't disappointed! It was definitely or best meal in Hoi An and possibly in all of Vietnam (I day that because we haven't been to HCM yet). Set in a garden the ambience is lovely. The food is fantastic! Loved the lost and found cassava salad, beef la lot and the... More

This place was close to our hotel in Hoi An and as we did not want to go into the city anymore on our first day when we arrived in Hoian, we went their for dinner (following the good recommendations here on TA). We weren't disappointed and also went there the second night we stayed in Hoian. The place has... More

This is a great little restaurant with wonderful food and great service. We tried a number of dishes and were very satisfied with them all. If you have the time it's really worth a visit! I just wish we'd find it earlier.
