“Yummy Pork Spring Rolls (+ book exchange!)”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

Cute little restaurant. Good prices. Lovely staff. The pork spring rolls were possibly the best I've had in Vietnam (good pork, lots of veges, not too oily). And great to be able to enjoy a 3000 VND beer and exchange our books :)

“Great deal”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

Shrimp spring rolls and the chicken and beef pho were great. Pho is under breakfast but we had no problem getting it at 3PM. Broth was amazing, didn't have too much meat though. But it was very cheap. 4 iced coffees, spring rolls, 2 pho, large water was something like 240,000 Dong. Great deal, and great flavors!

“YUM YUM YUMMO!!!!”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

The absolute best feed in Hoi An!!!!!! Without a doubt delicious! SO terribly embarrassingly cheap!!! And service at your feet!!!!
My favorite the papaya salad! We went back 3 times just so I could enjoy this salad!
The fresh beer cold and perfect! There is nothing on this menu that wouldn't satisfy! The fried wonton with salsa!!! Eggplant hit pot!!! I'm still salivating!
Treat yourself! You will not be disappointed!

“A little gem”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

The people at the Laugh Cafè obviously care about what they are doing. The food is great (I had Cao Lau once and squid in banana leaf the second time), the café is nice and quite and clean, service is nice (it's mostly kids from not-so-priviledged backgrounds who are training for a career in tourism), the 3,000 beer is a bargain. I wish I had found out about it my very first day in Hoi An!

“Concur with "cheap and fabulous" ”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Tasty food in a relaxed setting. Great value for money. The eggplant in claypot is delicious. The 3,000 dong beer is a bit dodgy though!
