Lovely restaurant

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

We went here after reading that the profits help the poor in Vietnam and Cambodia. My husband had the Australian steak and really enjoyed it. I had the almond crusted chicken which was also good, it was even better when I used his mushroom sauce as a dip for my roasted potatoes. Very good service!

We were in Hoi An for 10 nights and ate at a variety of restaurants. We found this one, loved it so much we ate again several more nights. The staff are lovely, very gentle and attentive. The food was some of the best we had eaten in Vietnam, with a huge choice of both Asian and Western dishes. We... More

Me and my friends are staying here in hoi an for 3 months, and we have been there 4 times the last 3 weeks. The food is really good and the staff are friendly. When we crave "western food", we always go to white lotus.

Such a nice meal and a great idea for a restaurant. Ordered the house wine and given a taster beforehand as very different from the normal wines I have. Highly recommend it

We had a wonderful meal served by young staff from disadvantaged families in Vietnam. It is one way for the privileged tourist to acknowledge and support the important work being done by this organization

We visited this restaurant completely unaware of its roots as a training establishment for disadvantaged young people. The food and the service were excellent and we were entertained by watching the motorbikes go up and down and the wanderings of pedestrians. One of the best meals we have had in Vietnam.
