“Not the friendliest. ”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

We were attracted in by the Trip Advisor billboards outside, after stepping into the restaurant we had the most unfriendly service. I almost wanted to leave after we ordered our drink he was so rude.The food was Ok, quite average Vietnamese cuisine, quite similar to other restaurants along the waterfront. They should just practice being a bit friendlier.

“The fresh beer is why we came, the food made us stay longer”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

We initially went to Thuan Y because of what Lonely Planet said. We fell in love and visited at least once a day of our 6 day trip to Hoi An. The fresh beer tastes fantastic, cold and it's about $0.25 CDN a glass. It's a beautiful family that owes and runs it and you really feel like you're sitting in their kitchen. It's a really relaxing atmosphere. Foodwise, we always went with the special and never was disappointed. The banana wrapped fish and spring rolls were especially delicious.
We look forward to being back. There's many restaurants along the main strip along the river in Hoi An but I seriously recommend popping in. You won't regret. It actually made me sad when people would read the menu and walk away...they really don't know what they missed.

“Exactly what I hoped for”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

I have been eating at various places - some a bit posh and others not but this just hit the spot. Simple, very tasty and very cheap. We all liked our meals and it was ideal. Service was quick. Place doesn't look amazing but I am OK with that.

“Great location and service”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We love the location of this place - right on the river but not too busy. The staff have looked after us so well, on our last visit 3 years ago and again this time. We love sitting at the front of the restaurant especially at happy hour, and we have always been very happy with our food and drinks.
