Try the cao lau and the white rose! Everything was really good, the restaurant is quiet but still in the center of the old town. Prices were alright too!

Hard to find it, coz it hidden inside an alley, lucky they have a sign outside. The fry wanton are the best & others are tasty too.

This restaurant is hidden away in an alley, a la Secret Garden (another popular restaurant in Hoi An). I loved the ambiance and the affordable options!

Stopped in today while we were out shopping and so glad we did. Tried both the vegetable pho and the beef pho as well as the white rose dumplings. Everything was excellent!! Busy place and I can see why!

We came across this little restaurant on our hunt for dinner ended up coming back 2 more times! Tucked away down an alley it serves delicious food and a very affordable price.

Luckily we saw the sign for this place pointing down an alley. We are glad we went to check it out, because the food was delicious! The family that ran the restaurant were lovely too, so I would highly recommend checking out Old Garden.
