“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

Service was excellent, food was amazing. The manager was so helpful when it came to explaining the menu. His suggestion was perfect. It's a shame we only came across this in our last day of being in Hoi An.

“Excellent, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Unfortunately my husband and I didn't come across this place until our last night in Hoi An otherwise we would have been frequent customers. The restaurant was empty but we liked that it only has vietnamese choices on the menu and the prices were very reasonable so gave it a go - so glad we did, unlike MelWG our fresh spring rolls were the freshest and tastiest we've had in a month of being in Vietnam. Our meals were excellent, I had the Hades rice, we cant remember the spelling of the pork noodle dish but hubby says it was excellent (shocking memories) we also received a complimentary dessert (creme caramel) very light and fresh. would definately not hesitate in recommending this restaurant and in fact we joined trip advisor specifically to do just that. Staff were brilliant, friendly, attentive and helpful, tablecloths a little dingy but overall well worth a visit.

“Lovely staff, nice food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We stopped by this place after missing the shuttle from our hotel. It was empty but we decided to give it a go.

Food was very tasty, try the White Rose, light and fresh. We also for a complimentary dessert which was a nice touch.

Staff attentive and friendly. Would say give it a try.

“Excellent service and free wifi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Husband and I stopped here to use our computers with the wifi and have some drinks. The place was empty (late morning/early afternoon). The service was excellent. They were very friendly and attentive. The fresh spring rolls were average. The white rose dumplings were not as fresh as Faifoo. The liquor options are priced very cheaply (25-40,000 VND for midshelf liquor. They also had outlets outside so we were able to sit and use our computers for as long as we needed. We would definitely return to relax, have drinks and do work on our computers.

“Take the course”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I and two friends spent a wonderful afternoon learning to cook Vietnamese food here. The course is well-organised and good value, you're taught by a genuine master, and getting to eat the food at the end is worth the price alone.

I can recommend the Banh Xeo, Pho and Canh Cua Cha, as well as the deep-fried wontons - this is a place that's well worth a visit.
