Popular and with good reason. - Edit

Ate here twice during my stay in Hoi An. Open my last night I chose to spend out on the set menu for 1 which is 99,000d. It included lovely crispy spring roles, fried wanton, a veggie version of White Rose, and a Noodle dish. A lot to eat but worth it. The restaurant also offer cooking courses - something I would love to do.

Pros: Great ambience - surrounded by books!, Good price and good selection of dishes made from

Cons: None!

Great place - Edit

Really Good food and a great cooking course. We went here when we first arrived and kept going back. There was no need to try anywhere else when the food here was so good.

A must in Hoi An! - Edit

We had varied service the 4 times we ate here, but the food makes up for it. If you’re only in Hoi An for a few days make sure you go- huge menu and delish food! They have a smaller and quieter restaurant (Minh Hien 2) with the same menu which is just as good!

unmemorable food - Edit

Had wonton soup, wontons, oyster mushrooms and spring rolls. The latter was probably the best, otherwise very bland food.

Pros: wifi

Cons: poor-tasting food, expensive comp.

great wonton soup, lots of vegan options - Edit

A little further out but a fine walk. The wonton soup was great, the fried wonton and hot and sour soup was good.

So good we went there twice! - Edit

Minh hein is great. You can order a la carte or from a set menu. We liked it so much we went back a second time. It is really popular with tourists. It’s not the cheapest restaurant in Vietnam however it is very tasty and easy. We paid $22.00 AUD for 4, which included 4 mains and an entree, 2 coconuts and a beer.

Pros: tasty food, great range, great vegetarian food

Cons: none

Amazing!! - Edit

A wonderful restaurant that is large, comfortable and has a great atmosphere. There is a large menu consisting of local food at very cheap prices. Go for one of the sets, designed for varying numbers of people. Prices are unbeateble especially with the local beer at just 5000d per glass, they're practically giving it away.
Service is very prompt and efficient even when they're busy. Food is a little on the oily side but that is typical of local food.
This place is a real winner in Hoi An. I haven't been to the second location but am told it is even nicer.

Pros: Cheap as chips, Fast service, Great tasting food

Cons: Not all vegan, Dishes on the oily side

Delicious!! - Edit

Welcoming staff, lots of tasty options on the menu. We shared the papaya salad, sauteed veg curry, sauteed veg and mushroom noodles, 2x potatoes with soy bean sauce, and lightly fried tofu with chilli and lemongrass between 5 people. Our favourite dish was the potatoes!! Unique set up with bookshelves along the walls.

Pros: potatoes with soy bean sauce were delicious

Our favourite food in Hoi An and great cooking class! - Edit

We ate here at least 4 times and really loved the food and the setting of the restaurant- recommend the rice pancakes and the fresh beer and iced Vietnamese tea (tra dah) are great value for money. As we enjoyed the food we also did the cooking class- not as professional as other classes we have done but we did enjoy the informal nature of it and the fact that we could choose any 3 dishes from the menu to learn to make. Just a small thing but it would have been nice to have been offered a drink while we were waiting for the class to start or during the class- no little extras with this class at all but maybe we are just too used to being pampered!

Great menu and tasty food - Edit

This definitely the best place to eat when you're in Hoi An. We ordered one of their menus and it was delicious. The portion was big and it included a good variety of different dishes. The dessert-soup they offer is very sweet but definitely worth a try.

Vegan versions of local specialities ! - Edit

Great spot not far from the centre where you have the chance to try vegan versions of Hoi An specialities such as White Rose & fried wontons! We also had the turmeric & mushroom stuffed tofu with banana leaves which was amazing & very different to any other dish we've had in Vietnam! Would also recommend the white rose & fried wontons

European food, Vietnamese service. Disappointnemt. - Edit

I had fried rice with papaya and tofu skin (39k dongs) and fried rice with mango and coconut (39k dongs), as well an avocado shake (35k dongs). The dishes consisted mainly of rice (whole plates of rice!), the "dressing" was really scarce. The plate looked European, much unlike everything else I've had in Asia. The rice was cold or coldish. The coconut&mango "dressing" was tasty and well-spiced, but the papaya "dressing" consisted mainly of raw onion and it was an unpleasantly overwhelming taste. The staff served my cocktail to a different table and wanted to persuade the gentelmen there that they had ordered it... Generally for the price I would expect something way better, but what I got was a lot of rice. Two stars out of five: one for the interior and the other for the pet dog. Food did not deserve a star. The check was wrong by 2k dongs (nothing, but still) in the restaurant's favour. I just didn't feel like asking why, prefered to go someplace else for the evening.

Pros: Interior (bookshelves)/and awesome pet dog

Cons: Dishes consist mainly of rice, very non-Asian (=Eu

Best food in Hoi An - Edit

Between the main restaurant & the smaller one, we ate here five times in as many days. The menu here has plenty of delicious & creative options, whether you want to stuff your face or just have something light as you escape the summer heat. They also have western-style blended soups, which were a life-saver when dealing with an upset stomach. Service was good every time, though English levels vary between staff.
The cooking class is very flexible, with each participant picking one dish from the menu for the group to cook​ & share. The chef's English is passable, and he was very patient & friendly (though did seem to noticeably favour male volunteers). All in all, a great place to eat for veggies in Hoi An.

So delicious! - Edit

Ordered the soy tofu which was amazing. Had a fruit platter for dessert which was a bit tasteless but good selection. Had a lovely passion fruit mojito as well. Very good value for most things and a huge vegan selection. Even meat eater friends loved it! Dangerous looking mould in the toilet though.

Pros: good vegan options, good value, tasty

Cons: mould in toilet

Not to be missed! - Edit

So nice to find somewhere with a fully vegetarian/vegan menu. Went a little overboard and ordered lots of different dishes; all of which were totally delicious! The bok choy with mushrooms and garlic was a highlight. I think I'll go back again tonight to try a few more things!
