My sister had been to Hoi An previously and when she found out I was going, she responded that I should eat here. I went based on her recommendation and I wasn't disappointed! The food was delicious and very reasonably priced, especially considering the attention to detail in the presentation of the food (I ordered a dish that came in... More

We ate here after a recommendation from some friends and we're not disappointed! When you arrive the front of the restaurant appears a little drab but don't let this put you off! As you walk in through you enter a beautiful garden and courtyard which is by the river, its a lovely romantic setting. The food was to die for!... More

This restaurant is well worth a visit. The setting is beautiful in a garden by the river. Other reviewers are right in that the food and drinks are a bit more pricey than other restaurants but I think you are paying for the ambiance which is definitely worth it.

We were only table in for drinks and service was slow. We couldn't drink our Bloody Mary or Mojito - they were truly awful. Nice garden but that is only good thing about it. Avoid

The restaurant is located next to the river and offers a fantastic view. The building itself used to be a police station in medieval Hoi An and has a historic past. The garden and courtyard is also incredibly beautiful. It's a must go place esp. for a special dinner or lunch. The taste and quality of the food was great... More

We wanted to treat ourselves to a bit of luxury and the venue promised plenty. A terrific sounding menu, a gorgeous lantern filled garden and river side tables, just far enough away from the tourist hustle and noise to feel like we had found a hidden gem. Vietnam is pretty damn cheap for most westerners, and we were happy to... More

Lovely gardens,lanterns glowing,bullfrog croaking by the bridge,sitting watching the river traffic. Even the bowls of flowers on the posts of the bridge made you realise that there was attention to detail . Food was lovely and the charming Ha remembered us when we returned. The street side looks very empty but it's deceptive . I wish we had found it... More

Whatever a wonderful surprise finding this place was! We were wandering along aimlessly and noticed the grand entrance. Thinking it was a hotel, it was only when we saw the menu that we ventured in. The building is extremely grand and the beautiful Japanese garden is amazing. Once you have got your breath back from the scale of the gardens,... More

Excellent location by the river. Very pricy but celebrated my birthday here so was worth it. Food was excellent. Had the crab with spicy sauce. Amazing! My wife had the fish grilled in banana lead. Phenomenal. Again pricey but worth it if you are celebrating!

Came here as part of a group of 21. We had an organised meal of several dishes, but nothing stood out as memorable. I have to admit a lovely setting and watching the river traffic as our food arrived. Service was good and drinks reasonably priced.
