One of the quieter places in Hoi An

Good coffee and wait staff who are mainly orphans from Cambodia and Vietnam and are being trained in a skill. The Cau Lao is one of the best in Hoi An and that says a lot.

Amongst the plethora of restaurants in Hoi An, the White Lotus stands out from the crowd and is an ideal venue for foreign visitors who might want something Western to mix with good Vietnamese food. Our party of four ordered a mixture of both styles of cooking and we were all very pleased with our choices which were served to... More

Visited on the basis of Trip Advisor reviews as the restaurant was only a short walk from our hotel. Simple restaurant with good food combined with friendly and efficient service at very reasonable prices.

Just finished a cooking class with the most delightful Ha. She took us through the local market to buy some of the ingredients and explained a lot of the different foods, then we returned to the restaurant to cook and eat 3 local dishes of our choice. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful with a lovely sense of... More

We had tried to book a cooking class at a different place, but had left it a bit late and it was fully booked. So, we went for White Lotus as it was very close to our hotel. In the end we were very pleased that we did. The class was reasonably priced, and there were just the two of... More

Staff were friendly, service very efficient and the food great. We had a great time and would be back. A great thing is also that it is located near the city centre, but away from the big touristy chaos

Visited with friends in part because the White Lotus was near our hotel. All four of our meals were excellent, with the stuffed squid worthy of special mention! Service was very good and the ambience was quieter and less touristy and less frenetic than many places in Hoi An - so well worth seeking out if you'd rather have a... More

Good choice on menu and the food was nice with big servings. Service was also good and all profits go to a good cause. If you have a few days in Hoi An I would go check it out.

Me and my 3 friends did a cooking class at White Lotus in January, 2015. We were lucky to get a private course. The girl who was our "guide" was so helpful and friendly. She was really caring and wanted the best for us. Really friendly, young and funny chefs too. The food was delicious and we had the oppertunity... More
