What a great little restaurant. There is a mixture of barbecue food and other traditional dishes. Staff are great and the setting in a small courtyard off of one of the main streets running through the heart of Hoi An is like stepping iback n time,

We absolutely love barbecue, so we had to try this restaurant as soon as we noticed they had a huge grilling station outside. It's located in a beautiful patio, with great lighting and ambience for dinner time. Even with all tables fully booked, you don't feel like it's overcrowded. Just go there and pick any item from the BBQ section.... More

We attended this restaurant on a busy New Year's day in town and were blown away. Although it was absolutely packed, the service was attentive and really friendly. We had a wonderful meal there and will be back very soon indeed. We opted for two barbecue dishes which came with morning glory and a noodle salad. Both were incredibly tasty... More

I had to let it come to temperature for at least 30 minutes. They didnt let you taste the wine before pooring a full glass. At $7 a... More

Hai Cafe is a lovely little eatery in the centre of Hoi An's Ancient Town. It comprises a moderately sized courtyard and a small indoor area. The cafe also offers cooking classes. The entrance to Hai Cafe is attractive. It is in keeping with the area but there is something appealing about the signage and entrance into the courtyard. The... More
