“excellent restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2009

Visited this waterfront restaurant at least 3 separate times during our short stay in Hoi An. Excellent food and service at good prices. Definitely recommend trying the wontons and spring rolls ;-) Proceeds claimed to go towards a charity for street children, so also supports a good cause.

Also did a cooking class for 10 USD each, cooking exactly the same as that mentioned by the previous reviewer - the food was indeed excellent and plentiful, and neither of us got sick (though we were quite careful to wash our hands regularly!).

“avoid unless you want to spend the next 20 hrs on a toilet!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2008

I chose this restaurant to take a private cooking class because they advertise that a portion of their profits support the Blue Dragon Children’s foundation (www.bdcf.org) a Vietnamese organization that works with disadvantaged youth. It is a family owned restaurant and my teacher was Nhung, their 18-year-old daughter who teaches cooking to tourists as a way of improving her English. We prepared deep fried spring rolls, grilled fish wrapped in banana leaf with a lemon sauce, and grilled beef with lemongrass, chilli, and sesame. All of the dishes tasted excellent and it was a great learning experience. However, within two hours of the class ending, the problem began. Unless you want to stay attached to your toilet for the next 24 hours do not eat the food at this restaurant! How can I be certain that it was their food that made me sick? Of course one can never be 100% certain, but the only other thing that I ate that day were 2 bananas, and I have never had a banana make me sick. So dine if you so choose, but you have been warned.
