Cao Lau: Hoi An’s exclusive noodle dish. Chewy, udon-like noodles are topped with pork slices, herbs, crunchy noodle offcuts, pork broth and chili jam.

Hoi An Fried Wonton: Resembling tortillas due to their large size, these crispy wontons are filled with pork and shrimp and topped with a tomato roulade.


Com Ga: Chicken rice, which originates from China, is common in Southeast Asia. Vastly different to Hainanese chicken rice however, the Hoi An version comprises yellow rice, shredded village chicken, fresh herbs, black pepper and chili jam.


White Rose: These translucent steamed shrimp dumplings (shaped like a rose) are made from a 120 year-old family recipe that has been kept within the family to date. They are deliciously piquant and you can find them in almost all Hoi An restaurants.

Let your culinary and artistic appetites be fulfilled as you dine in an ancient house that was once inhabited by two generations of prominent Vietnamese artists. Faifo is the old European name for Hoi An, and the menu at Ancient Faifo is a culmination of old and new - a reinvention of grandmother’s fare with an infusion of modernity.

From the complimentary cumquat/lime welcome drink (called "sweet and sour") to the seasonally changing set menus and à la carte options, you'll dine like a royal to the soothing tunes of a pianist and other live music.
