Little Faifo is a contemporary Vietnamese restaurant in the middle of Hoi An's old town. It was previously known as Ancient Faifo Restaurant.

Little Faifo is located in one of the old town's many wonderful airy merchant houses. The renovated interior is a good fit for the slightly more upscale atmosphere. It's well done. It's a few hundred metres from the Hoi An's busy restaurant epicentre, which makes it a tad more peaceful. Something we like.

The food is a take on Vietnamese cuisine that may not have too many resonances for Vietnamese diners. The local cuisine is being adapted to suit the personal serving style of westerners. There are some flavour adaptations as well.

Don't come here expecting a meal that would be recognised by the Vietnamese families that live in rural Hoi An.

The menu is a mix of familiar Vietnamese dishes and some more experimental options.

There are also pasta and pizza options - they're having bets all ways.

This is a classic tourist restaurant in a nice space, done well. Staff are friendly and attentive.
