We passed by Dao Tien Restaurant while walking around. The restaurant sits a bit outside the tourist area and on the river bank. The food and service were excellent. The dining room is open to the outside so we enjoyed a lovely meal and a view. Tien, the restaurant owner was very friendly and helpful.

This restaurant was recommended to us, and we were not disappointed. Although we found it a little difficult to locate, it was well worth the effort. Situated right on the river, the outdoor patio is huge, and sat many groups. We had a nice private table for 2 under the trees and lanterns, very pretty. The staff were friendly and... More

Located a bit from the centre is this excellent restaurant. The food is fresh and tasty. There is a patio with tables on the back with a waterfall and cozy feel to it. The restaurant offer cooking classes. Highly recommended!! During our stay we ate here two to three times and was never disappointed.

It's really a great time at this restaurant that we chose. We were taken by surprise from the first steps! Right next the old town is a opening space with beautiful river view of this restaurant. Tradition in modern integrated into the romantic with colorful lanterns, frogs croaking under the small ponds in the garden, humming mono-chord show free and... More

Lovely set up with lanterns and wrought iron furniture on a patio looking over the river. Lovely and close to the hotel we stayed at. Service good and nice food.

My friend recommended Dao Tien Restaurant to me after her trip to Vietnam last year. I came to the restaurant in April. My first impression was the location and the friendliness of all the staff. Sitting on the river bank, I enjoyed the romantic sunset. The food was great with all local dishes. Mr. Viet, the chef, also showed me... More

We were recommended this place by our tour guide, and guiding by the popular reviews of other Western travellers I can understand why he thought we might like it. The food was terrible! There was absolutely nothing Vietnamese about the dishes, they tasted like poor-average Chinese dishes I might get in the outer suburbs of Australia. Everything was clearly catered... More

This is the worst restaurant in Hoi An! Nothing compared to typical local cuisine which is way more delicious. All dishes are custom-made to pleased tourists so basically, you can find those menus in your local chinese restaurant. Service is slow. The restaurant was not smart enough to closed doors and windows considering the cold temperature in the room area... More

Consistently good food and excellent friendly service. The location on the river is pretty. We found this restaurant to have better food and better prices than the restaurants we ate in along the main tourist streets. Try here!

We visited this wonderful restaurant during our stay in HoiAn. The food was exquisitely prepared and delicious. The flavors were memorable! There were 5 in our party and the favorite item was "Money Bags" (if only I knew the Vietnamese translation for this.) The staff was very attentive and friendly - to add to our pleasure. If the food wasn't... More
