“Excellent food and service!”
Reviewed February 1, 2011

Slightly overshadowed by the popularity of Cafe 43, Sun Shine cafe remains to be a hidden gem for those who wish to taste authentic and good-for-value Hoi An cuisine. There is a very homely atmosphere and run by an extremely lovely lady, and the food is fantastic. We decided to play it simple- ordered Cao Lao, and 3 bowls of pho, all of which did not disappoint and left us wanting more.

Highly recommended.

“Magnificent family run establishment - don't miss it”
Reviewed January 23, 2011

Brilliant little place - the owner is a lovely woman, her daughters incredibly friendly, the service is so attentive and the food is excellent.

Don't miss this little wonder in the back streets - the white rose is fantastic. All for less than $5. (for two!)

“Fab Christmas dinner 2010!!!!!!! Thank you Hoi xxx”
Reviewed December 26, 2010

Hoi thank you for making my first christmas dinner away from the uk one to remember!! In a town where everyone you speak to seems to have ulterior motives (ie getting you into their shop/restaurant!!) Hoi is friendy, welcoming and genuine. The food was fantastic and her lovely dog Micky so sweet!

We ate in many places in Hoi An but the food at Sunshine was the best, and better than that was the hospitality and welcome. Would recommend this to anyone we know and meet. On top of which 2 courses and numerous beers came to less than $5!!!!

“Treated like part of the family”
Reviewed November 25, 2010

Ok this is my first ever review, bare with me:

I was in Hoi An at the start of November on my honeymoon, read some other reviews about Sun Shine and had to see for ourselves. Had a lovely night there and were treated like royalty, Hoi has such a natural friendly nature. I really felt her dissapointment of the lack of business she had on the night we were there, especially when Cafe 43 across the road was bustling (Hoi mentioned that it was really hard for her with 43 being in the LP guide and Sun Shine not....)

Great Food, Great Price, Amazing Friendly Service. Definitely worth the nice short stroll just out of the Old Town to get to (even when it was pouring raining).

Say hi to cute little Mickey the dog (puppy)!

“Great value, friendly atmosphere”
Reviewed November 19, 2010

Directly across the road from Cafe 43 this restaurant also served excellent cheap food and had a friendly local atmosphere. All the dishes were good but the grilled fish in banana leaf was particularly delicious. We had more food than 2 of us could eat and a couple of drinks each for less than US$10. They even threw in a plate of fruit for dessert on the house. Certainly worth a visit!
