Can't rave about this place enough. We went because of the reviews and it didn't disappoint. The owner and chef - Phuc Nguyen welcomed us at the door - we were the first ones to arrive. We ordered the pancakes, fried spring rolls, ox tail and a few other mains. They were all amazing. The balance of flavours just seemed to be spot in every time. Throughout the night the owner came out to check how we were enjoying the food. He told us his background, that he had worked in Bahrain and Dubai where he was awarded top Asian chef one year. He then worked at one of the 5 star hotels along Cua Dai black before he saw this restaurant for sale. He also gives cooking classes which I signed up for with my son. We came back a few days later and he showed us and also got us to make our own. I now have the recipe for the best Vietnamese dipping sauce I've ever tasted. Dinner cost around $50 for 4 people. It may be more than most others but well worthwhile.

Simply incredible food. We had a chat with the chef after the meal and found out he previously worked in Dubai and Bahrain at major resorts and the food was testament to his great experience. We have eaten all over the world and have to say this was one of the best. Fantastic flavour! Definitely recommend the pork rib dish and the fish steak. True vietnamese food in gourmet style. Balcony with a fan is the way to go in this heat. Great staff and value for money too!

What a fantastic meal and setting we had at this restaurant. The Pork rib dish was fantastic as was the Screaming Beef. Great decor and excellent friendly staff, and the Chef/owner came and spoke to us after our meal, nice touch. It's more expensive than most Hoi An restaurants but I was happy to pay the extra $ for what we received,very,very good.
