Yea it was meant to really be a small cafe shop so we don't really have a real kitchen or ventilation but it's been so popular since day one that it's become like a real busy restaurant. what did you order?



BTW my sister said whomever it was ordered it wrong, thats why you guys got the pho tai instead of the bun bo tai lol.....but i wont get into the details!

Just went to Hoi An..

Have the menu and pictures to share.

Main Menu




Drink Menu


Appetizer that came with #1


#1


#3


#17


Went there with my mom for lunch. She ordered the #1 whereas I went with the #3. I did not try any of hers so I cannot speak for it but the #3 was good. I did not ask for it to be extra spicy but I'll be sure to do it next time. The broth was good but the noodles and meat were excellent. It was not as spicy as I thought it would be but at least I'll know for next time. It was nevertheless delicious.

Service was good. Tea came right away and the meal did not take too long either.

The restaurant itself was nicely renovated but will need to get some A/C for the summer as it got quite hot in there once I started eating. I sweated not because of how spicy it was but the heat from the soup and the restaurant. It didn't get uncomfortable but I would think that A/C or some good ventilation would go a long way.

Mom said the waitress and cashier were pretty. hahaha now I think my mom is somehow on RS too.

Overall, I'd give it a 8.5-9/10.

Just got home from Hoi An.

Service was excellent and I even got to meet FlyNvBaller!

Tea was very fragrant and restaurant was extremely clean. It was actually weird.

Pork & Shrimp Spring Rolls
This was by far, the most unique spring roll I've had. It's as simple as it gets yet quite delicious. It's basically the spring roll wrap with shrimp and pork. Nothing else. You get the best of both worlds - full flavour of the shrimp and pork. Can't go wrong with this. I don't recommend using the sauce simply because it takes away from the awesomeness.


Pho Dac Biet (small)
Broth was amazing. I'm not sure I even know how to describe it. A very lean, clear beef broth where you could taste the different elements of beef used. Portions of noodles were plentiful, even for a small and meats served were in excellent quality. They go easy on the onions and cilantro allowing you to taste the full flavour of the broth. This needs no sauces of any kind. Just don't toy with it. It was amazing.



(Not shown - Pho tai & iced coffee)

I normally do not give very good reviews nor ratings as I am very particular about my food (especially when it comes to pho) but this is as honest as it gets. The menu is small - I quite like this. Why? Because they keep it simple and stick to the basics (perhaps to maintain consistency.) I don't know and I don't care (well, sort of) but try this place out. Seriously.

Cleanliness - 10/10
Service - 10/10
Food - 10/10

Will definitely have to return.

suggestion to flynvballer

why don't you have vietnamese accents in your menu, and number each item too
i think it'd make it more authentic and order taking 10x easier

It's ok, accents are redundant. My sister probably did it on the computer, prolly doesn't know how to get those accents or know where they go lol. Makes no difference.
As for numbers.... There are numbers what are you talking about lol... No numbers for drinks if that's what you mean?
