The owners and staff are super friendly. We kept going back simply because the female owner was sooo nice and they had a great little dog too. They sell great value home made beer (7 for one US dollar) and their food is okay. It is right across from the Phuoc An hotel, so location was good for us because that is where we were staying. We entrusted our laundry to be done and it came back smelling very fresh and clean.

We went to this restaurant twice during our 5 day stay in Hoi An. The restaurant is just infront of cafe 43 a very good rated restaurant by lonely planet which was full with Customers, while Sunshine was empty. We decided to eat at Sunshine and we were not dissapointed. Food is superb and so tasty, sweet,sour, flagrant and Hoi the owner is just a fantastic lady, so nice that we decided to take a cooking class 2 days later. The price for our first dinner was only 12 usd and we had wonderful pork with sesame, delicious fríed spring rolls, white rose which is a dumpling filled with shrimp and fríed garlic on top and a great fish in banana leaf and a few beers. In our cooking class done in her kitchen we made these dishes but instead of white rose we cooked shrimp with tamarind sauce......so good...... We had a lot of fun with Hoi in the kitchen and we left with very good memories of her food and specially herself as a person. Please go....

Me and my girlfriend went here nearly every day during our 5 day stay in Hoi An. We had breakfast here several times and had muesli and fresh fruit salad with tea and fresh milk and an omelet to share. Unlike many restaurants in Vietnam if the owner didnt have something on the menu she would head out and buy the required ingredients. The Cau Lau is very cheap and to die for and was much better than others we tried around the town. One day my partner wanted noodles with chicken which wasnt on the menu but once again the owner happily obliged. I would recommend you give this place a try and I am almost sure you will go back.

Hi all that reads this review..Sunshine cafe is the best place to eat in Hoi an, it's got everything value for money, brilliant food, and the lady that owns it, is awesome.. I've spent the past 4 weeks just in Hoi AN. I've tried and tasted loads of other restaurants. And nothing compares to SUNSHINE.. see for your self.

We came back to Sunshine this year whilst on holiday after discovering it travelling last year, the food is still amazing & consistently so rather than cafe 43 (opposite) where it can be a bit hit or miss. The service is great & Mickey the dog is hilarious, you are made to feel extremely welcome. So many people just walk straight into Cafe 43 without giving Sunshine two glances & we would have done the same had cafe 43 not been full when we tried to go there last year- so glad it was as we would never have discovered how amazing it really is!
