“A gem”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I saw this place on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try based on all the good reviews. We were not disappointed! We came in around 3pm, so the cafe was nearly empty. The staff were very friendly and attentive without hovering over us. While we ate they stayed back enough, so we never got the uncomfortable feeling being watched by the whole staff as you get in some other places.
We ordered fresh spring rolls as a starter, a chicken baguette and shredded papaya salad for main meals. All 3 dishes were delicious and the main course dishes arrived almost at the same time!
When we left I forgot to grab a copy of the bill after paying it, so I had to return to the cafe 30 min later to ask for it. The manager was helpful in digging it out from the pile of papers and gave me no attitude about it.

“Good food”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We met some Aussies and decided to meet there as we all wanted to try it. We shared some starters and chose different main courses, all of which were tasty and well prepared.
The fact that the restaurant helps train youngsters makes it even better.

“The best freshest food in a great setting served by these wonderful young people.”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We sought out this restaurant while we were in Hoi An as it had been reccomended to us by our tour operator. We both had different lunch dishes that were fresh, full of flavour and delicious. I think with any menu it depends on what you choose but we were not dissapointed with our dishes. We had been in Vietnam long enough to have grown to love the Asian flavours and this restaurant certainly delivered. The service was great with the young people keen to make us welcome and practice their English. It was humbling to learn what one man has done to change the lives of so many disadvantaged young Vietnamese people and one we were keen to support. I would reccomend it.

“Streets ahead”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Ate here last night. There was nothing to fault. The staff were so friendly and our waiter gave us his full attention. The food was delicious and tasted very fresh. We both decided to go for the spaghetti with seafood for our main course. We shared spring rolls to start. We had three glasses of wine and then we were given a complimentary fruit platter. It was 600,000d which we thought was very reasonable for the standard. It would amount to £10 a head in the UK. Highly recommended.

“Worthy cause but food not tasty”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

We arrived in Hoi An Historic area early evening and were very hungry. We came to Streets Restaurant Cafe and decided to eat here because it received nice reviews for the food.

Needless to say we ended up being very disappointed by the food because it was very bland. I ordered the Mi Quang and it was ok. However the Cao Lau my gf ordered was pretty tasteless. She even asked the server about this and she commented this is the way it is suppose to be. My gf who is Vietnamese was pretty shocked because she has had Cao Lau many times and that simply isnt the case. We finished with dessert and this was the best thing about the meal. The coconut ice cream with pineapple topping was delicious.

I expected more since the prices were very high, but I must say the food is average at best so def isnt good value for the dosh spent. The only consolation the dosh is going to a worthy cause but let's hope the food improves or that will be moot point.
