This restaurant is located a bit out of the old quarter. It is very peaceful and when we arrived, we were the only customers while have dinner there. The staff was professional and polite. The food was average. The juices came with too much water in it, after asking to leave the ice out of it. The vegetable skewers and... More

We are only staying in Hoi An for about a week but have already been to the restaurant twice! It is a lovely little place away from the main centre and hustle and bustle of the main tourist attractions but is well worth seeking out. The staff are very friendly and for the most part speak good English (much better... More

It was a great experience to participate the cooking class at the White Lotus Restaurant with the whole family (my husband, our two daughters 10 and 12, and myself). After having visited the local market and bought fresh food, we prepared three absolutely delicious courses under the very kind guidance of our cooking instructure, a young and cheerful vietnames lady....

Stumbled across this little gem last night.mall profits go towards Project Indochina providing assistance to the poor in Vietnam and Cambodia. Staff were very sweet and meals delightful - portions sensible. Support a worthy project and get on board.

We were recommended to try the White Lotus by one of our tour guides, they explained how it was owned by an Australian (as we are) and the charity behind the restaurant. As it is just down the street literally 300mts from our hotel we decided to give it a try for a quick lunch after arriving in Hoi An.... More

Just a few hundred metres from the Anantara hotel, the staff were extremely friendly, and the menu pretty comprehensive, covering both Western and Vietnamese/Asian. We had Crispy Wontons to share followed by the Seafood Platter to share. Both of the dishes were very tasty, the seafood platter coming with a pineapple in the middle (then cut up for dessert). Can... More
