Why Vườn Xưa (Old Garden) restaurant is special ?
The Old Garden restaurant is covered with a funny plant functioning as a natural ceiling for the garden. It's funny roots hanging down like you're sitting in the jungle...providing some nice shadow to enjoy your lunch.
Cao Lau is one of those traditional dishes from Hoi An which is a must try! Other dishes like the Chicken Rice is a good alternative.
Must try dishes:
Cao lầu is made with noodles, pork, and local greens, that is found only in Hoian. Its unique taste and texture is achieved by using water from an ancient Cham well. In the last few decades, new restaurants with modern versions have added shrimp or chicken, and additional herbs.
Hoành Thánh comes from China but has been adapted by the inhabitants to suit the local taste. Wonton is made with rice flour and filled with ingredients such as shrimp, pork, egg, and spices. There are a few kinds of wonton dishes: fried wonton, wonton soup.

Tips for you
It was our first night in Hoi An, so we decided to go to Old Garden. It's not very hard to find. The atmosphere there is great! The owner of the Cafe was very pleasant and when she discovered, that we were from Russia she spoke Russian with us! The food was absolutely amazing! We ordered Pho, Dumpling Roses, wonton and shrimps in banana leafs. We would definitely go there again!
We stumbled upon this place while walking around when we got really hungry for lunch. It's down a long alley, but don't be deterred! Just keep walking straight and you'll see it on the left eventually. It's worth checking out! The family is super nice, the food and beer are both way cheaper than most other restaurants in town. We had really good cau lau with fish and shrimp, white rose dumplings, and 10k Larue beers. We also had a good mango shake. Great meal and a great price! I highly recommend this spot!
It was difficult to find a vietnamese restaurant after 9:30 pm. However, it was great that we found this restaurant! Value for money - 4 plates and 2 drinks are only around 200,000 vdn. Also the food was quite nice! Would like to recommend this place.
