“Good Appetizers and Curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Four of us went to Morning Glory. You usually need a reservation. It is crowded most of the time and seating is tight. All the food is fresh and plentiful.

“Good. But over-hyped surely?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Here we go again. Another restaurant drowning in 5 star, superlative reviews. As if they were written under the influence. In the cold sober light of early evening, which is how we found it, this eatery is serving good home-style cooking (well at least when and where I was brought up in the Far East) and that's all. It's not "the best food I've eaten in Vietnam" and I hope I'll get a chance to eat somewhere much better. Sure, we've had the misfortune of eating in worse places, but also a few equally or more enjoyable meals at places we can't even see listed on TA. Tonight we had Hoi An chicken rice, tofu spring roll, fish in caramel sauce, chicken curry, bitter melon and beef broth. Prices are highish by Vietnam standards, but this is Hoi An and a celebrity chef with cookbook! Well, if everyone is raving about the food here, I need to get my dad's housekeeper and cook back to open a restaurant. She'd also be a lot tougher than me as a TA reviewer! Morning Glory has several sister eateries in Hoi An: including Cargo Club and The Market. Let's hope the proprietor and chef does not spread herself over too many places and see standards drop. So, a dependable choice but don't get over-awed by the hyperbole in many of the reviews about it here.

“Excellent Vietnamese food with atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

You have to book for the evening - it took us two days to get in ,but the food was worth waiting for. Superb spring rolls, a delicately flavoured chicken and ginger dish, and wonderful banana crepe to finish with. Interesting old house (like so many in the centre of Hoi An) and we ate in the airy upstairs room (though not on the coveted balcony). Don't miss it if you are going to Hoi An

“Lovely Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

We sat out side which was nice although you do get bothered by the street vendors. The restaurant is in one of the lovely old buildings with great atmosphere. We had Vietnbaese food which was great and we would thoroughly recommend.
