This restaurant is non for profit run by Indochina. It's a little away from the main streets of old town, so was quite, however was still lovely. The waitresses were truly fab. They had a better grasp of English than most hotel staff, and we're very friendly. Unlike some places we've been to, they were pushy, and we're very helpful.... More

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.

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.

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
