“Worth hunting down”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

The Tripadvisor/Google Maps location is about 50 metres wrong. It mid way along the block it is located in, and on the side nearer the river. We nearly walked past it, not highly lit.

As many have said, the chef has worked internationally, and the standard of food is very high.
It provided a bit of variety as there is a lot of good, but similar food around town.
We dined mid to late evening, and as the kitchen quietened down, the owner/chef came out and talk for a few minutes to each dining couple, and thanked us for dining, all very relaxed, not imposing.

“Possibly the best restaurant in Hoi An”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Excellent new restaurant. Great food, clear menu showing specialty food and local dishes. Try the special fried fish, wantons, pork pies (not like the English ones!) and garlic beef shin. Good wine list, situated in a lovely old colonial shabby-chic house. You can see right into the kitchen. The chef comes and introduces himself, he's a very interesting and charming gentleman but is in no way invasive.

This was one of the most memorable meals we had on our 3-week honeymoon. Well done!

“Best meal I've ever eaten! Ever.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Went last night with my boyfriend for a late dinner after hearing great reviews. The building was atmospheric, the service was impeccable and the good was out of this world. I ate the grilled fish dish and it was the best meal I've ever had! Tons of fresh flavors! It was perfect and Ill be thinking about it for years to come.

My boyfriend had the oxtail soup. We both insisted that ours was better than the other persons. The ginger tea was great as well. The staff also brought out a welcome snack and the chef came to talk to us at our table. When we left he helped us find our next destination and even unlocked our bikes for us. Can't recommend it highly enough!

“Lovely ambience & food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014 via mobile

Dinned here 2 nights ago on upstairs terrace. Lovely, tasty food (not the cheapest but still great value) and friendly young waitress. Old world French/Vietnamese decor. Definitely a nice spot close to market.
