Delicious, fresh food choices from a vast menu, great ambience, friendly staff and a very interesting concept behind the restaurant. The owner, Geoff, is a remarkable man .... very dedicated to the "needy" of Vietnam and Cambodia. It... More

I have been traveling with my husband, recently released from the military (Major Innfahct, Ret), in the beautiful riverside town of Hội An, in Central Vietnam. We had heard of a local specialty - Thịt Cầi - and were determined to try it. As we strolled past the lovely facade of the White Lotus Restaurant, we were hailed by a... More

My husband and I were walking in the lovely town of Hoi An on a recent late summer evening, when we were hailed from a table at the front of the White Lotus restaurant by a stout elderly man who convinced us that the fried chicken wings at this restaurant were as good as any in town - indeed, he,...

All the profits from this restaurant are donated to Project Indochina to help the less fortunate in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. The director, Geoff Shaw, runs a great restaurant and charity. I had a good 'ol Aussie steak and a couple of glasses of wine - beautiful!

We found this restaurant by accident whilst walking around. The staff were very friendly which was why we went in to the restaurant. The menu had local and international dishes. We had beef skewers, cao lau and vegetables with cashew nuts. The beef skewers were amazing. They were very tender and full of flavor. Thw cao lau was the best... More

The director of the The White Lotus Restaurant is a non profit and an integral part of the Indo-China Development plan , Mr Jeff Shaw(Director) is proud of... More

I went here with my friend last week and the food was so flavoursome and delicious. The five spice squid was cooked to perfection and the wontons were so yummy!! The staff were also extremely friendly and up for a chat :) great experience.

..but the food is very nice too! With some relatively cheap options and decent servings (the Vietnamese pancake was delicious) this was a nice restaurant to have dinner at, plus it was good to escape the busier end of the old town. But most importantly it's worth coming here to support the great cause that all profits from the restaurant... More
