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.

We went to White Lotus as it supports NGO work. Sadly the air con wasn't turned on, as it was a very hot and humid night (there were fans though). We waited 1 hour and 10 minutes to get our starters in a restaurant that only had 10 - 12 people in it. We saw others getting their food before... More

First, my apologies for the poor service your group experienced while dining at White Lotus. The time delay was unacceptable by any standard. I was aware of the problem prior to seeing your review and have since taken steps to assure it never happens again. In our defence, we had a totally unforseen multiple senior staff shortage in the kitchen... More

This restaurant offers it all. Great service, excellent meals and it won't break the bank. Once we discovered this gem we've visited every night. Do yourself a favour and go to the White Lotus Restaurant, you won't be disappointed. P.S. Loved the Aussie connection.

Love the community support aspect of this restaurant. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Food is incredible with a vast array of dishes both Vietnamese and Western. Located close to Old Town yet out of the bustle of the markets. A place you could visit every day or night and experience a different meal.

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.
