When I first arrived I fell in love with the restuarant but I loeft fereling so disappointed. The food was just OK but the service was really bad, the girl attending to our table was the laziest person who refuses to clear our plates and change our plates, we had to have our dessert on the same plate we had...

Location by the river is really nice... too bad this is the only positive about this place. We were surrounded by large tourist groups. Ordered typical local food which was below average, really not nice. Staff is friendly.

Dare I say a romantic setting if you get a table at the very front with the lanterns from the path creating... More

We had our lunch here as part of our itinerary arranged by Asiana travel. This place has a lovely scenery facing the river. Shaded with trees with hanging lanterns made this place cozy. However, have noticed that it seems to cater more for small & big group tours thus, it gets crowded during meal time that slow the food serving.... More

The location is great if you love a good water view and the light thrown over the restaurant from the many pretty lanterns is inviting. However, its the choice of eatery for small and large tour groups, therefore the food is quite bland. Expensive as well compared to others in Hoi An. Having eaten in many restaurants in my visits...

Visited this restaurant Monday October 10, 2016 and was pleasantly surprised. Food was flavoursome and service was great. I was also impressed that there was a kids menu including western dishes for children and toddlers not quite into vietnamese cuisine. After travelling to this region 5 times it was the first time we came across this little delight. It was... More

Staying at a nearby hotel but decided to eat outside the complex. On walking beside river came across this restaurant. Decided to eat there. The food was so good and the service very good. Whilst there several large parties of 20+ people arrived but our food and service remained excellent. So good we went back the next night as well.... More

We got here early so we could have a drink and watch the river traffic which was spectacular. Had a table right on the river. Everything about this restaurant is great, the view, food, drinks, staff and atmosphere. Really the best we have eaten at in Hoi An. Everything was fine until the staff started running around. They got the... More

I had dinner here as part of a half-day tour thay I booked through my hotel and I have to say that this was definitely the best bit of the day. I had the set menu of: Money Bags (crispy and light wontons), 3 taste soup (corn, egg and I'm not sure what else...delicious), Sweet and Sour Chicken, Aubergine in... More
