There’s no shortage of Vietnamese restaurants in Hoi An’s old town. So there didn’t seem to be a big need for another. But Thanh, a Danish Vietnamese who recently relocated to Hoi An with his family after years in Saigon’s restaurant and bar scene, is doing something different.
He’s focused less on something distinctly Hoi An, and more on serving up quality flavours from across Vietnam’s south.
I dined here twice during my recent visit, once as a guest of Thanh’s. Both meals were very good with flavours rising above the regular tourist fare of the strip.
The decoration is bright and the upstairs terrace has a great view across the old town. Staff were friendly and relaxed too.
Rusty Compass recommendations are always independent. We recommend the places we think you should check out. That’s it. We usually pay our way - and if we don’t, we tell you. Thanh is an old friend and he covered our second meal.
