Great place to eat or just have a drink down by the river

We had lunch which was great so we went back the next day! There is a room upstairs which we didn't sit in but it has a good view of the river. The food was delicious and I particularly enjoyed the banana flower salad.

Had been in Vietnam for internship and visited Hoi An as part of my holidays. Everything was well except for this discriminating restaurant with rude staff and stinking attitude! 1) when we entered the restaurant, we requested for a seat upstairs. The staff replied "upstairs, FULL!" For a few times with annoyance and insistence. When my friend went up to... More

Overlooking the river this place is fantastic option for an afternoon coffee stop! We have enjoyed our iced coffees served in cute little jars, aswell as cooling passion fruit juices! The only trouble was the food, I had beef cooked in banana leaf, that was simply too chewy and tasteless, my partner had squid calamari that were overcooked completely. Would... More

We were seated upstairs both times we visited Banana Leaf and had great service, delicious food and good food options for westerners. Our group ordered off the (amazingly cheap) local dishes both times we visited and loved them, we also had other items from the regular menu and found them delicious and efficient. Would recommend for both lunch and dinner.... More

A great place to fuel up before you hit the tailors. The service is very good, the food is great and the prices excellent. Situated on the riverfront too so great for people watching

We had a lovely lunch here. We were with a guide so he knew what their best dishes were. We had a lovely banana flower salad, a wonderful fish dish served on a banana leaf... and a bunch of other dishes, and finished it off with yummy banana crepes with chocolate.
