“The best food in Hoi An”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Just finished our meal at White Sail cafe which was recommended by Neville from the Original Taste of Hoi An Food Tour. Amazing meal in a quaint little restaurant just of the beaten track. We ordered the fried wontons, stuffed calamari and crab with tamarind. All dishes were fantastic and full of flavour. If you are in Hoi An then eat at this restaurant and you won't be disappointed. This is the first review I have written for a restaurant, so it must be good!

Had some white rosé dumplings, banh xeo, cao Lau, and ice coffee for 140000vnd which is slightly under $7 usd. The waitress was very friendly and helpful as well.

“Wish we had discovered this place earlier!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We hit this place for a late lunch spontaneously and were so glad that we did. We ordered the shrimps with green pepper sauce, clams with lemongrass and the hoi an pancakes. All were superb but my favourite was the shrimps dish which comes with a serving of steamed rice. The setting is off the main road, just around the corner from the Indian restaurant Ganesh. It was nice to be away from the main old quarter and all the hustle and bustle. The staff were really friendly, loos fairly clean and all in all we had a lovely dinner for under 300VND.

“Good food for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

Went to White Sail for dinner. White rose dumplings were excellent, fish curry was good, the stirfried pumpkin was so garlicky that I couldn't eat much of it. Great prices for Hoi An. A great meal if it's convenient to where you are staying, not a destination.
