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

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

First sit outstide and watch the sun go down over the Sh Zayed mosque from the beach. Check! Second - enjoy the tasting appetizers and the recommendations of the chef at Hoi An. Impeccable service coupled with Tiger shrimp, Duck and Beef dishes for the three of us. Portions are more than adequate but not overdone and each one was... More

I ordered a set menu and my husband ordered a main meal. That was the perfect amount for the both of us to share everything with some leftovers for later. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating which added to the enjoyable meal.

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
