Family run restaurant bit out of the city center still it was worth to walk there every evening. The food is very tasty and cheap. The beer is probably the cheapest I've ever had in the restaurant

I stayed in Hoi An for almost three weeks and tried a lot of different restaurants. The Cafe Sunshine was by far the best I found during my travels in whole Vietnam! The food is just awsome and the fresh beer is only 3000d! I came back almost every day (including my birthday) after I found it and also did... More

Oh I wish I could go back to Hoi An only to eat at Sunshine Cafe! I went backpacking for 8 months and tried a lot of beautiful food, but Hoi's cuisine still haunts me! Ok, you may have to wait a while if there are many other customers, but what do you expect when this nice little woman is... More

Sun Shine offers a lot of good food for a very reasonable price. My personal favourite is the chicken with lemongrass and chili, nice and spicy. The staff is very friendly as well and always smiles at you. Good place to sit down for a quick meal and a few fresh beers.

Loved this place. We ate there 4 times and drank the 3000vnd beer. Meals were good and at a much more reasonable price than the restaurants near the river. Only down side was sometimes the meals were a little slow in coming out.

I can only advise to avoid this place. We tried food there only because it had some Trip Advisor recommendation in the past but it was a big disappointment. During a week we stayed in Hoi An we tried various restaurants and street food and it was always very good. The except of the Sun Shine restaurant: their 'white rose'... More
