Having read reviews we sought this restaurant out. The food was good, but it wasn't as good as expected and it was pricey. the meal I ordered had very little meat on it. The service was not ideal either. Lovely setting however!More

Dear Wanderluster91, We cannot remember who you are by following very few details you described in general. We got recently only one complaint about the portion of prawn dish and we immediately recognized the case. We have no idea why we didnot notice your complaint...More

We ‘happened’ upon this restaurant as we were wandering through the back alleys in Hoi An. The food was ‘clean’, fresh and packed a punch of flavours. The young girl prepping the food in the open kitchen was marvellous. She worked methodically and presented not...More

This hidden gem is worth searching out. Staff were very welcoming and eager to meet our requirements, we changed our mind bout the wine and they were happy to change before we opened the bottle. No problems at all. The menu was great and plentiful....More

I read your response to my review. I find it sarcastic and rude, and I am shocked to see that a business can speak to it's customers in this way. The response seems to imply that this is not the first time I have visited and reviewed the restaurant; "you again Chris". I assure you that I and my "little Vietnamese girlfriend' have never been to your restaurant before. (We live in the south of Vietnam.) We stumbled on your restaurant by accident. The prices I am comparing are those which I am used to paying, and the opinion about the taste of the prawns was that of my girlfriend. Although I will now definitely tell people not to come to your restaurant, I want to know why you think it is appropriate to send a rude and sarcastic response to a customer who gave a truthful and objective opinion about your establishment.
