I had very good seafood there, visited the restaurants different times. A basic restaurant, typical local style in the middle of the old town, but away from the tourist places. It's located in a small alley, 2 Le Loi. English menue, but not much English spoken. A good place to meet some locals.

We found this place after walking a short distance from our hotel on our first night in Hoi An. We were greeted by a lovely lady who quickly served us and brought us beautifully presented food in good time. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff did well to not make us feel like we were everyday tourists! We... More

I enjoyed a heavenly lotus salad with fresh vegetarian spring rolls on a hot afternoon and was quite pleased. My husband had the cashew chicken and loved every bite. Great food. Friendly and attentive staff. We will certainly visit again when we visit Hoi An.

The White Sail Cafe is located just outside the old city, basically next to the street food epi center in Hoi An.

What I enjoyed was the fact that it retains the authenticity, yet is much more sophisticated and ambitious about... More

A great resturant to go to for very good food and a nice warm atmosphere. The service was prompt and polite. The food was beautifully presented. For us it was a special treat to go there. We had to book the previous e vening as it is so popular.

We followed the trip advisor comments - really fantastic food and lovely waitress who wanted to try out her English which she learns from a book as school was too expensive. Such a wonderful experience couldn't recommend it more highly. Very unassuming and friendly. You can find them at 134 Tran Cao Van. Be sure to try the Hoi An... More

The staff are friendly and the lotus salad was beautiful...full of delicate flavours. The seating is comfortable with direct views of the world going by outside. Went back a second time and tried the pork and shrimp papaya salad...it was just as good. The prices are very reasonable 45000-55000 vnd...or about 150,000ish for a set meal.

I had the stuffed squid due to the recommendations on here. It was delicious. However the whole menu looked great! Good Vietnamese tea to accompany the dish. Overall the food is superb, restaurant is cleanly, staff are nice and the setting is relaxed. Give it a go :)
