“not much laughing going on but decent food”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Easy to find and tasty food. I had the tofu cai lay although I'm not a veggy and it was delicious. Wife had chicken lemongrass in banana leaf which was amazing. Romantic place with lanterns and easy to find. Beer at 3000d a glass you can't go wrong! I was expecting a bit more joviality from staff but very low key. Maybe should think about renaming?

“Great local food cooking classes”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

We ate a few meals here and decided that this would be the prefect place to take a cooking class. We learned how to make tofu and tomato in a clay pot, vietnamese pancakes, pho, and stir fried shrimp noodles. We didn't only learn how to make these dishes, Huy introduced us to different meal variations and taught us about various ingredients. They also provide free beer during the cooking class and you get to eat al the dishes that you make. This is an excellent value and you will be supporting a good cause. This is some of the best foor that I have had in Vietnam.

“Great restaurant with excellent service”
Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

We visited Laugh Cafe as part of the Taste of HoiAn tour & went back for lunch 4 or 5 times during our 14 night stay at Sunrise Resort. The restaurant employs young staff learning the hospitality trade and service was second to none. We loved the White Rose and fresh spring rolls. It's great sitting outside the restaurant watching the world go by in the street with a few glasses of fresh beer at 3,000VND!!
