“One secret you'll definitely want to discover...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Hidden towards the end of a tiny, unengaging alleyway, this little gem has it all however: fabulous food, efficient service, clean even by Swiss standards, lovely open courtyard. Even the restrooms had their own charm, hidden behind saloon type doors. We had a set lunch sadly but even that was very enjoyable and we would have loved to come back at night and try some delicacies from the menu card... If you stay in Hoi An and happen to be in the town center around noon time, don't miss it anyhow, you won't regret it!

“Just Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We were on a 3-week tour of Vietnam and Cambodia and had two excellent dinners in Hoi An, this was not one of them. The food was just so-so, the service was terrible. We were constantly being asked if we were finished even if it was obvious that we weren't.

“Superb Place, Food and Setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

Really hard to find, down a very narrow alleyway it opens into a truly a secret garden. Lovely setting, great staff and food is sensational. It is a must visit. We went back and would have liked to try the whole menu if we had enough time. Briliiant authentic dishes, presented with real style and flavour was fantastic. Google it for the menu and location.
