This is our second visit here and once again the curry blew us away! It's simply delicious, delicately flavoured with lots of vegetables. We order boiled rice and you are given a generous portion. The fresh beer is also worthy of a try as it is also lovely. We highly recommend coming here whilst in Hoi An. You won't be... More

Was only in Hoi An for two days and was recommended by the hotel to eat at Cafe 43, it certainly didn't disappoint! The spring rolls and claypots were the best I've had in Vietnam, the chicken in banana leaf was also delicious.

We ordered food and drinks after great reviews from others. It took ages before they would help us and another 30 minutes to bring us the beer although it wasn't crowded at all. The fish got pot was nothing special either, so a bummer after the high expectations...

This is simply the best food i ate in Vietnam. The dishes are very cheap and absolutely delicious! We had the Cao Lau, the crispy mushrooms, the tofu with tomato sauce and a pancake. Visited there twice.

We stayed in the hotel across, so we went to this family-owned cafe every day and never got disappointed. It has a really nice atmosphere and the food is delicious. Fresh beer is good too. The staff is very nice, a humble Vietnamese family. Try it if you are in Hoi An. I would recommend this place without hesitation.
