Went there based on recommendation from hotel, ordered food via the lady owner and she stormed off before we could order drinks. Food came out and we were missing some items, 10mins later we got the food we ordered. It was ok, veg curry was decent, stir fry noodles were not cooked and still rock solid. She tapped away on...

Ate there today with some friends.. ordered 5 different dishes. Nothing really spectacular. Didn't try there 3000 dong beer as it was early in the morning.. would be good to go there for a few drinks and eat something small like spring rolls.

I had the wonton soup - delicious! Much better and cheaper than the restaurants in the old town. Service was polite and friendly.

I am not a vegetarian, but just tried. Not good choice for non-vegetarian. Service is good though. It is a bit salty for my family

Our dishes were more than average. In fact I can safely say that my tofu in passion fruit sauce was the worst meal i have had since we arrived in Hoi An five days ago. Small serve and no trace of passion fruit, just sugar and salt. My partner's meal was hardly any more exciting. I cannot understand why this... More

We came here one evening and wanted to try the local Hoi An specialities. Two of us shared the set menu (159vnd for 2): fried spring rolls, wontons, papaya salad, cao lau and fruit salad. It was very filling. Good value and good service.

We ordered ban xeo, but it was the worst we have eaten so far. No filling, and almost no veggies. The sauce was also tastless. The wine was sour and the (cheap) beer was finished. The people running the place are not caring about their custimers, only about money. Worst place we have eaten in Vietnam. Does not diserve the... More
