“Wonderful!! Highly recommended.”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

We had a lovely lunch at the restaurant and got talking to Linh about her cookery classes.
The next day Linh and driver picked us up and we had a fabulous morning of market shopping along with learning about Vietnamese food and culture. Then back to the restaurant to prepare 4 dishes of our own selection. Whilst we had lots of help it was very hands on and a true learning experience. Back in NZ now and we have already made 2 of the dishes for the family.
Linh, her family and staff made that day one of the highlights of our time in Vietnam.

“The Best in Hoi An”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

This lady who runs this restaurant is just the best !! First of all she catered to 15 of us and never kept anyone waiting, then when you went to the toilet out back and saw how small the kitchen was you gotta take your hat off to her and her team !!! The food was fantastic and she had drinks on our table's as soon as, one could see how hard she was working !! I sat down with her one day and had a chat, she said she gets up at 5 am to get to the markets by 6, then she opens for breakfast and lunch and closes about 10, she then cleans up and gets to bed at about 12 and so it goes on for 7 days a week !!!! She also is a Mother and wife, this woman is a legend and will do very well , she has only been open 9 months. I wish her every success she so very much deserves !!

Reviewed April 29, 2013

We visited Linh's Restaurant on a recommendation and we were not disappointed - she and the family made us very welcome and the food was first class ! Would definitely recommend this to other visitors to Hoi An - Linh also offers a Tour Service and Vietnamese Cookery Classes - great food , great atmosphere and very reasonably priced - A Must Visit !

“Make yourself at home!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Found the place when looking for a laundry...Linh was out the front inviting me in. I liked her approach; a friendly smile, a warm welcome and not pushy. I promised that I would be back and with friends we weren't disappointed. Great atmosphere, local foods and a pedestal fan...a wonderful dinner all round. Will do it again.
