Fodor's Review

Fusing art, music, history, and cuisine, this 19th-century house in Hoi An's Old Quarter has been beautifully restored and offers silver service at remarkable prices. Slightly overshadowed by the setting, the menu is Vietnamese-meets-modern cuisine with such dishes as bean sprout dumplings, mango and lotus salad, caramelized pork, and wok-fried ancient noodles. The four-course set menu is probably the best deal. Enjoy a cocktail on the garden patio and then request a table on the small balcony overlooking the lantern-strewn street. There's live jazz nightly from 7 pm–8 pm, except on weekends, when traditional music is played.
