A chill out atmosphere, a simple and elegant interior design, open space to view the Hoian rice field before it would fade out by the invading of rude modernism. Good just with the healthy-concept smoothies, without sugar and condensed milk, or a light sophisticated meal to a romantic dinner with your lovers.Perfected with jazz music collection, from Nat King Cole to Michael Buble...Welcome all of you to come and enjoy the Vietnamese slow food meals as well as enjoy every minutes of an unhurried life.

We ate here twice and the food was amazing! Fairly cheap as well, the service was great and staff were very friendly. Had the kitten join us for lunch both days. Very chilled out atmosphere. A little outside the main area but a short bike ride or taxi if you wish. The spring rolls and the smoothies were too die... More

Fantastic family run restaurant outside hoi an main town. A short 5 minute taxi ride is a small price to pay for some excellent vietnamese food at incredibly good value. You must try the king prawns in butter and garlic. Thoroughly recommended.

Hello Lordchaff, Thank you for accepting my recommendation. Our chef is very happy that you love the fried prawn with butter & garlic. Although it sounds like western recipe but it is Vietnamese one, indeed. That is why we would like to introduce it to our customers. Thank you again and wish you all the best with your trip.

We ate here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner and both meals were excellent. The stuffed squid was amazing and the best meal I had in Vietnam.

This restaurant is definitely worth a visit when you are in Hoi An. The food is fantastic (try the desserts as well!) and the staff very friendly. Plus they have a really cute kitten and puppy, which we would have loved to have taken home! Prices higher than average but definitely worth it. Was well located for our home stay... More

We had a fantastic evening meal at Son. I found the menu to be imaginative, and the staff attentive. The food was delicious, each dish was delectable! At the more expensive end of our Hoi An meals, it was worth it, we thoroughly enjoyed each dish we tried. A lovely atmosphere, and delightful service. This was in my top 2... More

Went there for dinner last night, referred by our hotel, high expectations but fell a bit short I'm afraid. Some dishes were quite nice, a couple not so enjoyable, particularly the pork belly which was not good. Maybe just spoilt by so much great food in Hoi An. Location is a bit out of town, overlooking a road and traffic,... More
