Although the previous review had a bad experience with the chocolate, the coconut, mango and especially the coffee are brilliant - quite obviously home made (a little crunchy in parts!) but the flavours are the real deal - the coffee is made with local coffee and is wonderful! Try it - it's as far from the mass produced pap as you can get.

I have hrs been there, left 30 minutes ago. To be clear, I order only a chocolate shake which was suppose to have ice cream in it.
It taste as chocolate, mixed with ice and didn't taste any good (my reference expectations could be something similar of what you could get in Starbucks, as this place they well advertise the home made icecream).
I have then a talk with some very kind waitress, that tried their best to fix the situation. I asked if I could see the ice cream used, and then I understood by seen it, that maybe was really home made, but it frost and defrost a few times... Something you don't do with food.. I asked then to speak with the owner, who revert to the weitress that he was too busy (in an empty restaurant). This is my worst review in 3 years.
Again, the staff was good, the thing I tried not at all and maybe even not allowed to sell in general food standard.

Had dinner here - wasn't that packed but waited 25 mins for order to be taken and first drink to arrive, whilst staff busied themselves cleaning off other tables. The food was delicious, however felt 160vnd was a bit pricey for 2 prawns!

The restaurant has a lovely location overlooking the river

This is a great place to eat when staying in Hoi An. Located at the riverside, you get great views of the river and the typical Hoi An decorations. The food is very good. At reasonable prices you can choose from lots of Vietnamese and Western dishes. Service is good and staff is friendly. Definitely go here!

We enjoyed a good dinner and particularly like the fresh Saigon roll. Eggplant and tofu was also great and the service was good too.
