“The best value for money EVER!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013 via mobile

Great place for casual dinner: most dishes are exquisite ( we ordered 7 of them for two). It was all ridiculously good!!! Beside dishes are cheap (ranging from 20'000-70'000 vnd) ! Definitely worth the trip!

“Great place off the beaten path - you should try!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

We tried Cafe 43 on the recommendation of a local in Hoi An. It's a bit off the beaten path from the center of town, but totally worth the short walk. The food was great, and the atmosphere is so much fun, with fun pictures and testimonials of past visitors, and an outside patio area with plants and several pretty gold bird cages with sighing birds in them. The food was delicious, local, and great prices. So glad we visited and will probably go back!

Don't expect fancy- just local, great food and fun.

“Fab food and great cooking class!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

Cafe 43 was very close to our hotel so we ended up eating here a lot. The food was great, and cheaper than other local places. The staff were lovely, very friendly and always waving to us when we walked past.

We also did a cooking class here, which was one of our favourite things in Vietnam, it only cost $5 each plus the amount of the meal you cook, so in total it cost us approx $15 for the whole thing, which lasted over 2 hours. Others we looked at were over $20 per person.

Our fave food was: chilli and lemongrass chicken, eggplant in clay pot and shrimp spring roll, and now we've learned to cook them all :)

Definitely recommend this place!

“Better places”
Reviewed March 20, 2013

We ate here our first night based on the reviews and to be honest the food was pretty average, the service was terrible. At one point the owner came and sat at our table to do paperwork, weird. Our second night we went over the road to the 'Sunshine Cafe', the food was amazing, so much better than Cafe 43, the service was good and the fresh beer was much nicer.
