We ordered some chicken rice, some Cao lau and some Hoanh Thanh soup... all in all, the dishes were ready in not more than ... 5 mins!!! And obviously nothing of them are to our expectation, not hot enough, not cooked enough, nothing. The service is not very good either, maybe they want to keep a high profile for the cook! :0( Very very disappointing! The only good point of the restaurant is good location (right in the centre of the ancient town) in a nice ancient style house.

Local specialities of Vietnam are loved because the cook shows a very sophisticated way of preparing and cooking, no way it could be nice if they all ready-made. So if you simply want a good seat and nice view: this place is recommended, if you want a truly traditional cuisine: this is definitely not the place.

I ordered a bowl of Cao lau and when i was eating i saw some hairs stuck between the noodles, my husband ordered a sandwich and lime juice and when the staff put it on the table, we found on the bottom of the glass something black that looked like 2 pieces of rat droppings ! !!

This place is hugely underrated!! My hubby and I ate here twice in the short time we were in Hoi An. The food was EXCELLENT! We were recommended to go here by our tailor at A Dong Silk. Best recommendation we received our whole visit to Vietnam. GO HERE and order everything. It was all good!

We were the only westerners eating, great family run restaurant catering for locals and tourists. Food was very nice with great service, vietnamese tea was the best I have tasted. Recommend this restaurant for a good Vietnamese meal.
