The restaurant is pretty and a good place to relax out of the heat. Great food. They have a good veggie menu, mid range prices.

Lovely downtown oasis hidden away from the crowds in an alley off Le Loi (just don't walk into and sit down in the very glamorous private house on the right hand side like a friend of mine did). Ate here a couple of times - the green spring rolls and beef in betel are my favourites. Maybe a little more... More

I requested them to make vegetarian sizzling pancake with no eggs. It was amazing and I recommend it. If you don't have problems eating eggs than you can have it customized to have no meat or seafood but with eggs. Great service. Looked like they had a selection of wine although I didn't try any. I enjoyed the walk into... More

Noticed this restaurant advertised while exploring Hoi An on Saturday morning - slightly sceptical as it was down an alley and more in our opinion than the 150 yards quoted. It was very quiet and on a hot morning, the chilled refreshing towels were very welcome - we went on to enjoy a cold beer - very obliging staff. Returned... More

We loved this restaurant and came back another time after eating here. Both adults and kids loved the food and the environment here.

This is a very special hide away. The garden setting is extremely tranquil and private. The food never disappoints us and we did visit here often. The flavours of all the dishes are to die for. The staff are extremely friendly and very accommodating. It's off the main Le Loi street but so worth looking for it. We have never... More

You might need to ask directions to find this place, but it is worth the effort. The night we were there the service was a bit slow, but the food made up for the wait. I had the Vietnamese beef curry, the wife had fried calamari. Both dishes were very good. The spring rolls as an entree were excellent.

This restaurant is challenging to find the first time but is definitely worthwhile. Situated down a narrow alley it opens up into an enclosed courtyard that blocks out all the sounds of the city. Picturesque and quiet, it has a lovely atmosphere, attentive and efficient staff and soft live music. Drinks are reasonably priced depending on type of wine you... More
