We ate here recently and found it a bit "soulless" in atmosphere, not the best service and the food was disappointing. Atmosphere.....there wasn't any. All other diners looked disinterested and despite being over 50% occupied it was very quiet. Service.....started very well but after starters it slipped. Quite a wait for table to be cleared and for main course to... More

My partner and I decided to visit a restaurant close to the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, and chose Hoi An based on proximity and reviews. We were not disappointed. We sat at a table outside next to a fountain. The service was prompt. The food simply excellent. I love Vietnamese, and this was one of the most authentic meals I... More

Hoi An is not a cheap place to eat as it is part of the Shangri-La Hotel. However, the experience is worth it. Excellent food served by attentive and knowledgable staff, who will explain the dishes to you. The restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining. Outdoors as a courtyard atmosphere with pleasant views. Would recommend this as a place to... More

We had a great time tonight. The food was delicious, but service a bit slow. Setting is ok, no views, but the Hotel is gorgeous and makes up for it. I reccomend it!

Lovely setting and great place for an alfresco dinner on the terrace, just before it gets too hot. We had a lovely evening and thoroughly enjoyed the great food and service, both at a fair price. I highly recommend the set dinners, as they offer a nice culinary journey through the palate and the colors of the rainbow. Great venue,... More

We sat outside at this lovely restaurant - the setting was great. Food was well presented and good but just seemed to lack a depth of flavour. Service was excellent and pricing was good value.

Was staying at the Fairmont hotel next door, having read previous reviews decided to give it a go, was not disappointed, huge starters and huge main courses, would share if we visited again, lovely ambiance, could sit outside if it were warm enough, a little chilly in February.

Relying on Trip Advisor to pick restaurants and hotels has never failed us, until now. Deciding to break away from Dubai’s ludercrious Valentine’s Dinner offerings we decided to spend the night in Abu Dhabi and picked Hoi An’s Valentine’s Day special menu given the generally good reviews.
