Just had a set meal at White Sail restaurant and it was the best meal yet in Vietnam. Really great service and very helpfull staff. Food was of great quality and very well presented. Recommended to us by Neville who runs the Food Tour in Hoi An. Well worth a visit.

This restaurant was better than some places in Hoi An, but it’s not the best place in town. Fried wonton and sauted pork seemed to be the best here. If you can not find out the best one, this restaurant was okay for you.

Just finished our meal and it was nong! We ordered 5 courses (4 appetisers and a main) to share between 2. With this and two local beers each, it came to a grand total of 290,000vnd (~15 AUD). Very tasty, very full! Its only a little bit out of the main part of Hoi An, but it is so quite... More

This is a great little place to meet friends and just watch the locals pass, their breakfast's are great and they have a surprizing comprehensive wine list.

During our four days in Hoi An this was quite possibly our best dining experience. Prompt and friendly service, delicious but inexpensive food. It's a bit off the main tourist area (just a few minute walk really, Hoi An is fairly small after all), so I guess it's often overlooked. We were the only guests that night, which is quite... More

White Sail Cafe is the best way to experience, fresh seasonal Hoi An food without getting cramps in your legs from sitting in small plastic chairs used by local street vendors. I compare this place to street food in a way that the food/seafood is wonderfully fresh and balanced, and has that certain harmony that only real high quality food... More

There are many good dining options in Hoi An. I got a feeling about this place and despite two initial failures to locate the place carried on looking for it. I enjoyed the food so much I went back despite being able to afford and find fancier places. This place really tries and produces superb slow food. Should a rush... More
