Long history of producing Cao Lau. Low prices and delicious. We also shared the spring rolls. Highly recommend.

Ate here 2 nights in a row. Delicious vegetarian versions of local dishes as well as all the classics. Really cheap , especially compared with the restaurants one street over on the water. Highly recommend the vegetarian Chao Lau.

Went there based on online reviews, very average food, the white rose dumplings were a bit dry and hard on the outside. The cao lau was not so flavoursome. I'm sure you can find better in Hoi An

Walked into the restaurant because we still wanted to try some of the food typical to Hoi An and the place was full of locals. The place is inexpensive and the food is very good. Try the 'white rose' and 'grilled pork' (grilled inside a...More
