Great food, friendly staff, cheap prices, informative cooking class in which you can choose your own meals. I ate here 3 times and did a cooking class during the time I was in Hoi An and found every meal great value. Hong, the female chef was particularly lovely and friendly.
The clay pots are excellent, and their white rose was much better than we had elsewhere.

A great spot - not on the usual tourist circuit -- so better value for money than most. The food is fantastic and everything is cooked fresh in the tiny kitchen.
Fresh beer is popular in Vietnam but, all to often, is flat and insipid. The fresh beer at Laugh Cafe was excellent. Not just once - but all week!
Fresh beer is low alcohol so you can drink a lot of it. Fortunately it only costs 4000 dong (around US$0.25).

Laugh Cafe has moved. It is now at 126 Tran Cao Van. The same street but 250 metres from the old location. It moved because the new home has moe bedrooms. It can now help more young people looking for training and help to get a better job.

As the previous poster mentioned we aim to assist young Vietnamese people (17 to 27) looking to gain skills and experience in the hospitality industry.Young people gravitate to Hoi An as a tourist centre. Without experience they as usually offered menial jobs. We provide training in English, kitchen management, basic accounting, cooking skills, and presentation and service skills as well as giving our trainees the opportunity to actually run the restaurant. We provide accommodation for our trainees as well as a living wage.
