A gem

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... read more

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.

My wife and I went here for a late-arranged Friday evening dinner and generally enjoyed ourselves. We have visited all the other S-L restaurants before but not this one. Firstly I love the colonial feel of the restaurant inside. Outside you're just sitting on a terrace outside the hotel - OK but nothing very Vietnamese about it and frankly views... More

This is a great restaurant for Vietnamese within the shangrila hotel. If you have time go first for drinks on the beach just in front of the restaurant -there is an excellent view of the Grand Mosque. For the restaurant itself There is indoor and outdoor seating and you don't usually need to book. The hot and sour soup was... More

We had good memories of Hoi An at the sea, so we tried this restaurant. As we expected there was only one real Vietnamees present. The starter with fresh springrolls reminded us indeed, but the main course had a bit too much spices on board. We didn't eat it fully. You can sit inside and outside, which is nice.

We found the food here to be fairly good and tasty but very overpriced for what it was, it's not fine dining, yet it charges those kind of prices. We had a Lobster main course, as part of a set menu, which was a nice flavour, but it was served with all of the lobster bones, which served no purpose... More

We sat outside and enjoyed the ambience and service on a lovely Abu Dhabi evening in January. The service is, of course, unobtrusive, friendly and excellent. As was the food, which was delicate and light, as Vietnamese should be. The restaurant is an integral part of the Shangri La so it wouldn't be anything else. There was nothing to fault... More
