“4th trip to Vietnam and this is still our favourite place to eat.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012 via mobile

These are great people who cook wonderful food and give great service. It's cheap, but some of the best food to be had in Vietnam. The food will suit any Westerner and the fresh beer is always cold. An average plate of food here is less than AU$1.50 and the fresh beer is under 20c a glass. BUT, it's also beautiful fresh cooked food that will have you eating more just for the sheer pleasure.

“Same complex”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

Well worth the walk past all the establishments on the tourist path along the river bank. Just keep walking east along Nguyen Phuc Chu and you come across the eating area Ku Am Thuc. All the little dstalls seem to have the same fare. I ate at Mr Ba's establishment and it was amazing! Went for the Beef Pho and fresh beer. Totalled 33,000 dong so gave Mr Ba 50,000.
Anyone who is worried about eating at these type of places is missing out on the true Vietnam. Go for it, you won't be disappointed.

“Best food (value and taste) in Hoi An!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2010

My partner and I decided to give Mr Son's eatery a try for lunch after we happened to stumble into "Eating Place 62" by accident. We had the Pho (with beef) and it was just so delicious. We came back for dinner that same night and it was amazing. It was our third night in Hoi An and we wished we had tried this out first off. It was by far the cheapest and tastiest food we had eaten in Hoi An. Mr and Mrs Son clearly place so much effort into the food and presentation. The fried wontons were divine (the best we've eaten in Vietnam) and the rice pancakes were delicate, fresh and so tasty. I would highly recommend the cao lau (with pork) - it was the best I'd eaten in Hoi An.

Mr Son's eatery is only one of many eateries that lie in this "Eating Place 62" area. I feel that it's location may put people off from trying it. If you are going to be in Hoi An, you MUST give this area a try. You'll be pleasantly surprised with an authentic Vietnamese experience, delicious food and very affordable prices.

“Best Value for money food in Vietnam”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2010

Mr Son's food is great, we had the pleasure of visiting there in Feb this year.
I would highly recommend this resturant for the service and the fresh tasting food, not to mention how cheap it was either.

Mr and Mrs Son will make you feel very welcome.
We were eating there every day while we were in Hoi an, two to three courses and a couple of drinks each works out around $4 to $5 a head, and i could barely walk out.

We will be back on our next visit to Vietnam

“We'll be back!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2010

What can I say, the food was great - in fact, some of the best meals I've had in Vietnam, and... it was up to 3 times cheaper than most of the other restaurants in Vietnam.

Mr Son and his wife give excellent service and the best value meals in Hoi An. Take the time to try them out and I promise you that you won't be disappointed. We tried the rest and had to keep on going back.
