Although a little quiet and sedate, this restaurant has very good Vietnamese food. As expected the cold shrimp rolls were excellent, signature beef noodle soup with mint great and all other appetisers well served and authentic. By far the best dish this night for a light meal is the sea bream served in a lotus leaf (I think), superbly seasoned... More

Dear Woodentopper, Thank you for reviewing Hoi An in such a positive light. The food is indeed tasty and freshly prepared. The chefs and team are all Vietnamese and take great pride in preparing authentic dishes. Just so you know the sea bream is steamed in a banana leaf and is favourite with many of our regular guests. The team... More

This is my second visit and the menu had changed and there was no soft shell crab, which was a shame. However, the Devil Crab Cakes and Seafood Curry Soup more than made up for that. The rotating ceiling fans and delicate lanterns provide a calm and perhaps with the right company, a very romantic atmosphere. The food comes very... More

Having visited Vietnam, this food took me back in memories.. Over delicious and rich flavored food.. great selection.. Reasonable prices. Set menu options seems good. The staff were generous enough to offer try samples of their dishes and desert. Chinese beer is also fantastic and well served

An excellent vietnamese restaurant right in the heart of abu dhabi. I recommend the lamb cutlets and noya chicken. Reserve your tables in advance and ask for an outdoor seating if the weather permits, you won't regret it.

A great place for a special dinner, especially if you like Asian food. The prices are reasonable given the food quality and portion size. Service is attentive without being overbearing and the food is really delicious. I have dined both outside on the terrace and inside, within the beautifully furnished dining room. As near to authentic Vietnamese food as you... More

This was the stand out restaurant on a recent trip to Abu Dhabi. We had a very pleasant table outside; service was friendly and efficient and the food was excellent. Highly recommended.

Really love this restaurant. Great food in a wonderful setting, especially while the weather allows you to sit on the terrace. It was pretty quiet, but then it was a Sunday night and meant we didn't need to worry about securing a table! Good unobtrusive service, fabulous food and overall an excellent restaurant.

The evening was great and we chose to sit outside. The server recommended one of the set menus. Service, food, ambience all contributed to an awesome and very much enjoyable experience. Must Recommend!.

We were expecting great food and were quite dissapointed. The flavours of the dishes were ok, some nicer than the others but IT IS SIMPLY NOT VIETNAMESE FOOD. We have been in Vietnam and enjoyed the food there very much. The setting is beautiful though, especially outside. And service attentive.
