Have been to Hoi An a lot over the years and whilst it has always been good it is starting to miss a little of something that keeps it at the top of the list. The service is great and the atmosphere outside is great in the winter months. However; the food is starting to get a bit towards average.... More

This place is worth a visit as the food is wonderful. I did find it quite overpriced compared to some other restaurants in Abu Dhabi that are just as good, but I would return and have been a few times now. The service is exceptional and the setting is lovely.

The food is a good representation of vietnamese food in general. The pho could do with a little more complexity with some basil and more mint and the broth slightly richer. Service was good but that could be due to us being the only table. There are interesting twists on certain dishes and it is a good place to go... More

We went there to get a taste of fine Vietnamese cuisine for dinner. The service was really caring and efficient. The food was a mix of traditional and modern recipes and we liked it very much. Hoi Han is an good add-on to the Asian gastronomy in the UAE.
