My boyfriend and I visited Cafe 43 after reading TripAdvisor reviews and wanting a cheap dinner. We ordered the white rose dumplings, wonton soup and lemongrass and chilli chicken with beer and a lemon juice. Our food did not come out together, with each dish arriving one after the other. We tried to ask for everything to come together but... More

We stumbled upon this place right behind our hotel (EMM Hoi An) when searching for "Hoi An banana pancakes". Had simple but delicious lunch there and cheap beer. Decided to sign up for a cooking class with my girlfriend as opposed to the more expensive and busier classes at Morning Glory and more well known restaurants. They let you pick... More

The food here is great. The beer is super cheap (3000 VND!!!!). Main reason I have given 5 stars is for the excellent cooking class we have just finished. Perfect for if you don't want to spend a full or even half day cooking and if you're on a budget. You pay 7 dollars plus the cost of your meal.... More

I'd recommended the Chicken Clay Pot, gorgeous array of flavours. My girlfriend had the shrimp with vegetable and cashew nuts and thoroughly enjoyed it. You... More
