If you’re a connoisseur of hot cuisine, as I am, listen up! Look, I'm Australian: nothing wrong with that. And I'm not just some oik from a Melbourne suburb……..I've been around. London, Bali, Alice Springs, you name it. Nor, as a globe-trotter, do I eschew the native food. I've enjoyed a pork pie at Harrods (best served cold, the lard... More

This place is run by a not for profit NGO and ploughs their money back into impoverished areas of Vietnam and Cambodia, health care centres, clean water and the like. It was set up by an Australian man who decided that he didn't need the huge business empire he'd built and would spend his time and money on something more... More

My boyfriend and I visited the resturant yesterday for lunch. The staff are very attentive, the food is nice and takings from the restaurant are in support of a very good cause.

We were staying at the Anantara Resort which made it very close to this restaurant. Clean premises, very friendly staff and good quality meals at very reasonable prices. I had the Pork Spare ribs one night which although not disappointing were certainly not the meatiest I have had. The Vietnamese pankcake are certainly worth a try either as entree or... More

Had lunch at this restaurant, thought it was nice that they are eager about such an important cause, but the food really wasn't worth the money we spent. Had rice pancakes and fried nudels with chicken, it was simply tasteless. We've had rice pancakes other places in hoi an which both looked and taste more than these. Sorry to say... More

First, my sincere apologies that your meals at White Lotus yesterday were unsatisfactory. As our Trip Advisor rating will attest, that is not our normal standard. As is my practice, I ordered both meals today anonymously. I generally agree with the objective comment in your review regarding the rice pancake and as a result we are immediately going to change...

Had been in the tailor next door and got peckish picking out fabrics, so just went next door, best lunch decision! Great friendly service, quickly served and delicious food, and cheap! To top it off, it has good motives and an interesting story, 5/5 from us :)

We came here one night as it was close to our hotel and it sounded like a good cause with profits going to charity. However, the food was just okay and hit and miss depending on what you order. It is a challenge to maintain quality when you've got a eastern and western type menu. Our younger did enjoy the... More

One of the best places to eat in Hoi An! Beautiful food and fantastic, kind staff. Our son had just bought a kite and tangled the string in his excitement, the wonderful waitress spent the next 1/2 hour helping him untangle it. Nothing was too much trouble and it was always done with a smile. Thank you for making us... More
