On the menu, it’s skewer of meat to roll in rice cakes, Banh Xéo and spring rolls for everyone. You pay the number of skewers eaten and the meal varies between 5 and 6 USD per person. Hygiene is not the strength of this restaurant without being repulsive. Point to note: Few varieties of drinks

THE LITTLE MENU
As the name suggests, the menu is really small but the Vietnamese cuisine is excellent, there is nothing wrong. I think the property lacks charm but if you want good Vietnamese food, this is the place for you, you will not be disappointed.
Adress: 12 Le Loi, Hoi An
Second restaurant opened in Hoi An after the Mermaid, it is a reference for Vietnamese cuisine. The quality of the food and the cuisine with English service make it a very popular and highly recommended place and the price will take a back seat. Hygiene side, there is nothing wrong.
Adress: 22, Nguyen Hue, Hoi An
A fairly new restaurant, it has become a reference in a short time. The chef offers Vietnamese cuisine revisited and does it well. We regret the small portions but we will be seduced by the typical place.

RESTAURANTS OF SEAFOOD
The best place to taste seafood is the A Roi. A local restaurant not far from the beach where you can choose fish and seafood in ponds. Negotiate prices per kilo before ordering. The waiters speak English. This is really worth the cost of taking a taxi to get to this little seaside restaurant. To go back to hotel, ask a waiter to call you a taxi. The other restaurants next to A Roi are also very good.
This new restaurant offers Greek cuisine. If you want to have a break in Vietnamese cuisine, this place is a good choice. It offers dishes with several specialties of Mousaka to Souvlaki through the Calamari.
Adress: 188/, 05 Tran Phu
The best Indian restaurant in the city is without hesitation the Ganesh. It offers several specialties from northern India. Reserve your seat or you will have to stay outside.

GOOD MORNING VIETNAM
Establishment of pizza in Hoi An and after the closure of Casa Verde (one of the oldest reference in pizza), Good Morning Vietnam, run by an Italian is one of the best see the best pizzeria from Hoi An
Despite the quality of the service, pizzas are sometimes better than those served in european restaurants. My favorite, the calzone (puffed pizza).
Count about 180,000 Vnd on average for a pizza.
