Lovely little restaurant with similar offerings as Nu Eatery. Sea Shell is more contemporary than Nu but with the same excellent product. We love Nu as a Hoi An favourite but now love Sea Shell equally. If you have had Bao buns elsewhere & enjoyed...More

This place is spectacular, the food is so flavoursome it’s just incredible - none of us wanted to stop eating! Have the bao buns, the catfish wrap (more like a taco) and the banh mi! Amazing modern twist on Vietnamese food. I will be back!
