I visited today with two friends after a hard days shopping. We had briefly checked out the menu and were interested to try some local dishes on our first day in Hoi An. Between us we tried the green curry, lemongrass chicken and ma quang (excuse spelling) which were all delicious! To top it all off we had great service... More

This is a fabulous restaurant in the heart of the ancient town. Lots of dining options from alfresco to indoors and up stairs balcony. The food is delicious and the staff are friendly and helpful. Can highly recommend the tasting platter and the lemongrass chicken.

After spending some wonderfully peaceful time wondering the streets and alleys of Hoi An's old town, I came upon this restaurant. Looking at the menu made me salivate slightly and we decided to go in. It was beautifully presented inside with lots of outdoor seating. Our very sweet and lovely waitress named Moon came to take our order and spoke... More

We visited this restaurant 4 times during our stay in Hoi An. The food was fresh, flavoursome and reasonably priced. Thank you to trainee, Moon, who looked after us on a couple of occasions.

We wandered in to this restaurant on a whim. The menu is longer than a really, really bad date, so ask for recommendations. We had the stuffed squid and a local noodle dish. Both were very good, but the noodles could have used a little more spices. Our waiter barely spoke English, but got by.

Loved this restaurant, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was great. Visited with our tour group. The best spot is upstairs outside, with a view across the river.

Visited Lantern Town Restaurant with a family party of 6 for a dinner service. Members of staff were very friendly and quick with our drinks but sadly, the food service was incredibly slow. With the place only half full, we couldn't understand how our starters took so long. However, when the food did arrive it was well worth the wait.... More

We stopped by at Lantern Town for drinks and a tasting plate before heading elsewhere for dinner. The Mojitos were rather good, the tasting plate (three kinds of rolls) small and nothing special, but service was good throughout. Outside tables were nice, and indoors at least as good. There's supposed to be a terrace, but when we asked about it,... More
