This restaurant is called Heaven not Vetiver. The service was ok, although as English was not their first language when Dr ordering beer we only got one instead of two and took a while to explain we wanted extra plates so we could share the dishes we had. The chicken we had was delicious, the pork dish was salty and... More

Restaurant seems to have two names - at least two names on the building; Heaven Garden and Vetiver. Vetiver has good reviews. Heaven Garden, not so much. We had a great experience. The waitress, Thjep, was delightful. She was helpful. Her English was limited, but she worked hard to get it all right. I had the cao lau and it... More

I have never had a bad dish here and that's saying a lot! The burger, mussels, just everything is tasty and generous. Good choices of beers and drinks, big screens for watching soccer in season. Cute fireplace warms the spacious back room. The benches aren't my favorite type of seating but all in all this is a great spot to... More

With so many restaurants in Hoi An, we took a gamble and tried out this restaurant and loved it, and of the 5 days we were in Hoi An we probably ate there three times. We were usually the only guests eating there, which is a shame, though supply far outweighs demand in many places throughout Vietnam. I found the... More

Service was excellent, food was amazing. The manager was so helpful when it came to explaining the menu. His suggestion was perfect. It's a shame we only came across this in our last day of being in Hoi An.

Unfortunately my husband and I didn't come across this place until our last night in Hoi An otherwise we would have been frequent customers. The restaurant was empty but we liked that it only has vietnamese choices on the menu and the prices were very reasonable so gave it a go - so glad we did, unlike MelWG our fresh... More

We stopped by this place after missing the shuttle from our hotel. It was empty but we decided to give it a go. Food was very tasty, try the White Rose, light and fresh. We also for a complimentary dessert which was a nice touch. Staff attentive and friendly. Would say give it a try.

Husband and I stopped here to use our computers with the wifi and have some drinks. The place was empty (late morning/early afternoon). The service was excellent. They were very friendly and attentive. The fresh spring rolls were average. The white rose dumplings were not as fresh as Faifoo. The liquor options are priced very cheaply (25-40,000 VND for midshelf... More

I and two friends spent a wonderful afternoon learning to cook Vietnamese food here. The course is well-organised and good value, you're taught by a genuine master, and getting to eat the food at the end is worth the price alone. I can recommend the Banh Xeo, Pho and Canh Cua Cha, as well as the deep-fried wontons - this... More

Food was so bad, had to send one dish back, we just couldn't chew through the port, had it replaced by a noodle dish that was bland and basically inedible. Read previous reviews, can't understand what people raved about, couldn't have had a worse meal.
