There’s stiff competition from the other ‘restaurants’ calling for you to go eat with them as you walk down the road towards Miss Lien Thao’s, but don’t be swayed...she will be the one with queue of folks waiting, of happy customers and full tummies. Ate here for two dinners and a lunch ( following her cookery course) and all delicious and consistent. She is last but one on the strip!
Twice her sister pulled a table out from the middle of nowhere and benches that were probably in use In The kitchen area so we could enjoy spring rolls, chicken with chili and lemon grass ( spicy hot) fried wontons and much much more. fresh beer also excellent.
It’s inexpensive and for those wanting authentic food on a budget, you really can’t go wrong.

You can find authentic food here at a good price. It's a whole family running several stands next to Hoi An performing center; Miss Lien and her sisters are very lovely and hospitable. As my friend and I was enjoying the food, there were some other tourists looked having fun with the cooking class. Maybe I'll learn to make my own Vietnamese banana pancakes next time. Most importantly, beer here costs only 4,000 vnd!

We found out about Miss Thao through tripadvisor, and we are VERY happy that we did - we went and ate there 3 times during our stay and enjoyed a wide range of the menu; the wontons are superb, the white rose, Beef Pho and much more. The chilli jam in the jars on the table is homemade by Miss Thao - and is excellent! She even gave us a bottle to take home! :)
Miss Thao and her team were really friendly and Miss Thao is very talented at cooking up delicious food. It seems that they can cook the food in very little time - and we can imagine that in a short period of time Miss Thao will have a restaurant (and we hope she oversees the cooking, as she holds this talent),

Nice place for reasonably priced Street food in a food court complex. Had to wait a little while for a table - a good sign. Seafood hotpot was delicious and with beer Hoi at 4000dper glass a great place to while away an hour or so

We happened to wander to this area in search for some food. After eating the food I decided I must learn how to cook such great food. (Some of the best food ive had in Asia)
Very reasonable price (cheaper then all the touristy classes) and miss Thao is soooo kinda and sweet. You get a list of the foods she cooks and you can choose what you would like to learn. The class was so well done and really shows you and teaches you so that you can make everything back home. While I was there many people did the same thing (eat and wanted to learn to cook) so I highly suggest booking as soon as you can as it will for sure fill up since she keeps the classes small. DONT MISS OUT!!
