Lovely comfortable chairs and a nice ambience. Good service from staff. Very disappointing food that lacked freshness and flavour. We love the Dubai branch of Hoi An because the food is fresher, spicy, well cooked and a better selection (with amazing staff). Poor desert selection.

The food we ordered was quite delicious. I had wok fried Scallops and Crab soup, both excellent. There was 3 musical instruments that one lady was playing. It was interesting but this was not exactly kind of music that ne expect at such an expensive restaurant

It is a very good restaurant. Ambiance is fantastic both indoors and out doors specially in winter evenings of Abu Dhabi. Quality and presentation of food is excellent. Service is super with very courteous staff.

Very romantic ambience, I loved the cutlery and the whole presentation of the food and the way it was served. I had the home soup which was absolutely delicious followed with chicken curry. What I did get in return was a 100 dhs worth of coupon I could redeem from another famous Spanish restaurant of the hotel.

Had dinner here and totally loved this place. Had a positive experience at their Dubai location, but this one is definitely better! Service was effective, accurate and well coordinated. The waiting staff make your dining experience easy and pleasant. We didn't have to wait for someone's attention, nor did we need to repeat a request. We had meat and seafood,... More

After our poor experience in the Shang Palace, we were hesitant to try the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri Hotel's other East Asia dining. However restaurant manager Rashida Jumali not only listened to our complaints (and said she would pass them up) but ensured that if we came to her restaurant that we would not receive such poor food. Such an... More

Great authentic Vietnamese food cooked by Vietnamese Chefs. I've worked in Vietnam a lot and this was authentic as you can get. The only criticism is the restaurant was a bit dark.

Having informed the restaurant that it was a special night for us, we were given the best table in the place, with our table scattered with rose petals and over looking the gardens. A lovely start to our experience. The service was excellent and the food authentic and tasty. We will be going again!

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
