Went there last week , the waiters where clueless about both the food menu and the wine , food was not impressive at all . I got extremely frustrated when the main course started to arrive while the starters are still on the table ,, never again will go there ,,, I will spend my money somewhere else👍

There was little atmosphere as restaurant very quiet, we were then served so quickly we really didn't get chance to enjoy our meal. The food seems to have gone downhill since our last visit, and dishes were served straight from the fridge, so they had little or no flavour. Lamb chops were the only high light , but everything else... More

Would recommend to book just in case. Waiting staff were unwaivingly polite and attentive and the food was fantastic. Amazing flavours and... More

There are certain comforts in life that we take for granted. An enjoyable evening at Hoi An is one of those things I take for granted when I walk into the restaurant. My most recent visit was no different. I decided to treat a newly met acquaintance at Shangri-la's Hoi An. We had the pleasure of being waited on by... More

This was a marvellous restaurant in elegant surroundings within the hotel. The staff were attentive and courteous throughout the evening. I had not experienced Vietnamese food before but I was not disappointed. We had a complimentary dish included and the flavours were delicious and the food was fresh. There were a few other diners in the restaurant and it was... More

Very fresh tasting food, new flavour combinations, great tasting seafood, polite and efficient service. did not expect to find this in an Abu Dhabi hotel! I recommend the mango soup for desert to finish it all off.

We booked dinner at Hoi An and I have to say it was a fantastic experience from beginning to end. The food was beautiful and the amount of choice was fantastic. Our waiter was spot on with his level of service, he was there when needed but not obtrusive. He recommended a wine that was cheaper than the one we... More

Not busy on a Thurs eve, surprising! Quiet, warm ambiance, (not freezing cold as everywhere else) Friendly & attentive service. Good reasonable french wine that wasn't corked! Excellent fresh food- Papaya salad, crispy spring rolls, Tofu & very fresh Guylan. Very good home made sorbet as well. And reasonably priced. Ten times better than their other oriental competitor across the... More
