It was Christmas Day and we were wandering around Hoi An, looking for a late lunch. We'd read good things about Lantern Town so when we came across it, decided to give it a go. It's not particularly flashy and the service is average though efficient, but the food was quite delicious. We shared the Lantern Town Tasting Plate for... More

The ambience is fantastic on the balcony, with lanterns around you. The food was delicious and our waitress (Nga) was professional, attentive and friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

Popped in here on a last minute lunch call, and so glad we did. This was the best lunch we had in Hoi An. The restaurant staff were incredible and the food delicious! Service can be hit and miss in Vietnam, but they certainly had miles here.

Met up with an old friend here, and we had drinks and snacks. Ordered a Hoi An platter (mix of spring rolls, dumplings etc) and some beers. The service was fast and the waitresses were really friendly. Went back later that day (it was happy hour, would have been rude not to!), and were served a complimentary plate of steamed... More

We ate here twice in 2 days it was so good! I had the duck legs in red wine and the chicken vermicelli salad, both which I would recommend! Lovely service by Nga and a beautiful setting.

Not the place for a quiet meal but the food quality is excellent. It's set up for the western taste in food and how it's served. But none the less, the quality of the Vietnamese based dishes is very good. Good place to go if your a big group with a birthday to celebrate.

The papaya salad was so fresh and the Grilled fish in banana leaf was surprisingly tasty. A relaxed, candlelit atmosphere in the outdoor courtyard, overlooking the river. Place to go. Special thanks to miss Nga, our waitress.
