Highly recommend the Vietnamese pancake here. Excellent food and friendly staff at a low cost price. Sitting outside under a fan is a bonus on a hot evening.

Service is very good and profits go to a great cause so definitely worth eating here. The food is certainly nice but the tasting platter lacked spice and flavour - most things tasted the same without any real variety in the different dishes

We visited white lotus because it had great reviews on trip advisor and rightly so, this restaurant is beautiful, the food is lovely and the staff very sweet and attentive AND it supports underprivileged youth of Vietnam which is a big plus!

We had our last meal here in Hoi An and wished we found it earlier as the food was perfect. Profits from this restaurant also go to help underprivileged children.

The restaurant donates all its profits to community projects. The food is average not great. It is not worth a return visit for me anyway. Great staff but the portion size is small but most restaurants here are.

Whist there are so many cooking classes to... More

As we were leaving our hotel to walk into town, there was a tremendous crash of thunder & the rain started coming down in torrents. We spotted the White Lotus across the street & hastened in out of the storm to a warm welcome from the restaurant staff, who took care to find us a comfortable (& dry) table. This... More
