We have been to Hoi An on several occasions, and have eaten at many of the popular restaurants in the area, but were enormously impressed with our evening at Son. The food was absolutely delicious, and was presented beautifully. We highly recommend this restaurant!!

During our trip to Hoi An my friend and I biked past Son several times and their sign "Slow Food for Slow Life" enticed us in for dinner. The food was so beautifully presented and deliciously prepared that we returned for a total of three dinners. Each visit the quality of our dinners was perfect and we were always surprised... More

We decided to try this restaurant after reading the many good review especially the different popular dishes - garlic prawns, duck with citrus sauce and the pho. We were not disappointed by the tasty food except that they were abit salty. Overall an enjoyable experience and highly recommended.

You will never have a better Papaya Salad... this guys take the Slow Food movement to the next level. A must place to visit if you are looking for a great food experience. The banana split was amazing also... sadly we are leaving tomorrow so can't come back

We were recommended this restaurant by local food guru Neville Dean who claimed that they have the best garlic prawns we would ever taste and he was not exaggerating! They were to die for and have probably spoiled us forever because any garlic prawns we have in the future we will undoubtedly compare to these. We had to go back... More

This is a lovely, tranquil restaurant on the way to Cua Dai beach in Hoi An. The lemongrass chicken and zen spring rolls were superb. We also enjoyed a delicious salad and very cold beers. Owned by a sweet couple. Try it!

We wandered from our hotel to stumble across this restaurant. What a delight the food has so much flavour. Be prepared for a small wait as everything is made to order. We had the duck , fish , prawns, chicken and we couldn't fault any of the dishes. Excellent service !!!!!

A small Vietnamese house on the way from ancient town to Cua Dai beach (in between Phuoc An River Hotel and Hoi An Riverside Resort). A stop-by site for you to take a break before heading to the beach or to gain your energy after long hours by the sea. A chill out atmosphere, a simple and elegant interior design, open space to view the Hoian rice field before it would fade out by the invading of rude modernism. Good just with the healthy-concept smoothies, without sugar and condensed milk, or a light sophisticated meal to a romantic dinner with your lovers.Perfected with jazz music collection, from Nat King Cole to Michael Buble...Welcome all of you to come and enjoy the Vietnamese slow food meals as well as enjoy every minutes of an unhurried life.
