I tried Hoi An at the recommendation of a colleague and was not disappointed. I enjoyed the colonial ambiance of the restaurant and thought the staff was very friendly and attentive. I selected the Hoi An rolls for a starter and they were crispy and delicious. For my entree, I had duck in clay pot, served with steamed rice, which... More

Inviting friends in a perfect venue Hoi An was one of the best dinner experiences. The ambience of the restaurant, service, quality and variety of menu is superb. Thank you for Nandar and William for great service.

We are regular visitors and have enjoyed many delicious dinners at Hoi An. Definitely one of the best Asian options in Abu Dhabi. We try and get there in time for their 'sundowner' menu which is a nice selection. If it is not too hot and weather permits sitting outside on the terrace then you will have the spectacle of...

Very quiet restaurant on a Thursday night. The only other 4 person party was then seated right next to us for some strange reason out of ALL the tables in the restaurant. My pregnant friend was very much 'identified' as pregnant when the waiter mentioned it a few times and was treated as such in that a different canapé was... More

One of the best Asian restaurant so far in Abu Dhabi. The ambient, service and food quality are all amazing. The food taste really nice and cooked to perfection. I love the steam fish cooked with steamed banana leaves. Overall, highly recommended and worth visiting if you enjoy Asian cuisine.

The portions were massive, the starters were really great, the staff were lovely and the food was yummy! The restaurant needed redecorating for sure but all I could think of was when I was coming back to order everything on the starters list! Will be going to the one in dubai so am hoping it is as delicious.

The food is delicious and the service is top-notch. Lobster ravoili and fish in banana leaf are to die for! If it's not too hot, the outdoor terrace has a nicer atmosphere than the indoor area.
