“Mmmmm delicious - lots of veggie options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2011

Basic restaurant with excellent authentic Indian food. Really cleverly selected blends of spices in my opinion. Had vegetable kofta - with a beautiful creamy cinnamon sauce, veg byriani, veg jalfrezi, masala poppadoms (definitely get these!), and some naans. Happy with the selection of vegetarian options though there are far more meat and fish choices.

Went to the loo in the back (very clean, Western style) and had to go through the kitchen where you could see the cooking being done - all freshly prepared and clean setting too.

3 minute walk from hotel (Sunflower). Only slight downside was a reasonable wait for the dishes but that's what you get for fresh food. Tip: starting eating as soon as food comes because they come as they're cooked...

Excellent experience, and far better value than most of Hoi An.

“Not the best Indian food.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2011

This is not the worst indian food we've tasted, but far by the best. It tastes ok enough, but I would not recommend to eat here if you are Indian lover.

BUT, this place is much better than the Indian Restaurant in the town (ganesh). So if you really want indian food, eat at New Way Restaurant.

“Not the best Indian restaurant in Hoi An”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2011

The restaurant was OK.. the chicken seemed neither to be breast meat or leg meat leaving me to think maybe it came out of a can. It was spicy and cheap- It didn't live up to the claims made by previous reviewers in my opinion.

“The best Indian restaurant in hoi an”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2010

Having travelled extensively through India and countries that Indian migrate to on mass i know a thing or too about Indian food.Now lets not get caught in the trap of asking is New Way authentic,because,to me,there is no longer such a thing as authentic Indian food as it has travelled the globe and changed in so many ways.What i look for now in Indian food is taste,and,by god does this restaurant pack it in!!Owned by head chef,Dong,who previously worked under 3 different chefs in Ganeesh restaurant,also found in Hoi an,including Mr shiva,who,in my opinion is the best Indian chef currently working in Vietnam,she has a wealth of experience and has added her own twist onto her food.First class food at extremely reasonable prices and extremely friendly and attentive staff,if you are in search of a great Indian restaurant,look no further,come and try the New Way,i guarantee,you shall not be disapointed!

“loved this place - returned to get more of that great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2010

mmmmmm

Would absolutely recommend!
The restaurant is a covered area in front of the family home, very friendly service, very reasonable price & really really nice Indian food. You need to wait as it's all cooked to order but it's worth it.

I think they also serve pizza but no way was I gonna skip Indian food on any of our 2 or 3 visits!

Place is small and not at all fancy so not for everyone.
Find it on the right hand side as you head from town towards Cui Dai Beach.


:D
