Forget everything you’ve heard about any other restaurant in Hoi An, and go here instead. The food is incredible.

Every dish we ordered was fabulous. They actually know that vegetarian/ vegan means no fish/oyster sauce. Add a lot of fresh herbs. Definitely worth a visit and family friendly.

I had a red snapper and my friend bbq chicken. It tasted very good, but the meal was in our opinion not so much. Only the fish, the chicken and a side dish was served. No frites or rice included.

A must visit stop on my trips to HoiAn. Both open air courtyard setting and undercover inside. Upmarket food with reasonable prices. Highly recommend for first time visitors...... who I'm sure will become repeat customers.
