“May be the best place in Cua Dai Street”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

My family and I also went to Cao Cao Grasshopper, My Ly, and some other restaurants during our 1week trip to Hoi An this week.

Considering the quality of service, Bao Han is by far the best amongst the restaurants in that area. However, Westerners may prefer Cao Cao Grasshopper, as it is cleaner, and has those flashy and colorful asian decorations that Westerners may like, and far-eastern people despise.

The prices of most of the restaurants are ridiculously cheep, and food usually delicious. However, fineness of seasoning, and the textures of the cooked materials differed greatly. Being a Korean, I prefer, and look for crunchiness and crispness of the blanched or stir fried vegetables.

To my palate, Bao Han's stirred fried Glory Mornings with garlic(which we ordered from all of the restaurants) were not overcooked, and maintained the crunchiness of the stems.

Steamed fish is a good indicator of the cooking skills of the chef. Using too much ginger and soy source or other spices usually indicates insecurity of the cook. Among the places in near Swiss-Belhotel which we stayed, Bao Han was slightly better.

If you are going to eat fried or grilled food, than those fineness may not be considered, and you will enjoy any dishes they serve, and will really like them, like my kids did.

In summary, Bao Han's quality of service and food are above other places in Cua Dai street, which is the area near Hoi An Beach resort. The lady who speaks English there is very friendly, and is very concerned about the comments of Tripadvisor. So, mention Tripadvisor!

“If you like great food and lots of laughs with Phi - go to Bao Han. Their slogan "YOU NO LIKE - YOU NO PAY"”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Stayed in Hoi An for 12 nights and had a ball. Went to a few other cafe/restaurants then found Bao Han and went there every night after. Food was excellent - service the same. Phi was always eager to hear how she could improve her business as we were eager to taste her food. You get free rice and free desert (which we didn't know about so it was an added bonus). Phi has a magical sense of humour to go with her fantastic food. It is a family owned business and has been there for over 8 years. It's also interesting to note that when we were going back to our resort (after eating) most of the other cafes/restaurants were either closed or empty - that's a sure sign of good food.
Am more than happy to expand on these comments of required.

Great food at good price. Well worth the 3 visits we made there. Ask for pineapple and banana flambé for dessert. So good my wife asked for another helping.

“Awsome food and value”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

The food in this restaurant is awesome. The service is second to none. This is a family owned restaurant . The owner Fee has a fantastic sense of humor and really looks after you. The prices are very very good and you get free rice and desert. Great value for money and well worth a visit. Fee and her staff are so honest you will love them.
