We were the only table they are serving but the staff is quite slow and she forgot things. The seafood platter is good looking but seems some are just warm. The white rose and salad are nice though. Compared to other restaurant it is a bit over complemented.

I regret that your meal at White Lotus was less than satisfying. The waitress who forgot your sauce is a trainee who has been with us for less than 3 weeks. Due to unforseen circumstances, she was left alone on the quiet afternoon shift for a couple of hours and during the time you were there she also had to... More

We ate here after seeing the restaurant absolutely chockers on a Friday night. We went the next night and were the only two dining. The owner Geoff Shaw came over to talk to us and was very enlightening about how he started his charity work. Food was good, we had Basa fillet on banana leaf and Chicken with lemongrass aqd...

Lets be honest. Food is not really amazing. But this is for a good cause,helping children and the waitresses are very kind. Plus it is not expensive. Not a meal to remember but a good way to eat and make a good action.

The food here was so delicious. Best morning glory I've had in Vietnam so far! There are so many vegetarian options that were interesting and delicious. The prices were reasonable, and made even better by the fact that they're supporting a good cause. The service was very quick and friendly, although we were the only ones there at the time... More

Have eaten here before and again more than suitably impressed . Great Service , great fragrant food. Service was exceptional. It's a credit that this establishment are assisting in the less fortunate at getting ahead in life. For all those people whom feel they need to follow the more popular places in Hoi An then so be it. Here you... More

Friendly staff and good local food. What more could you ask for. No air con but outside fans, which were fine for us. Will be sure to return.
