Delicious Italian food. spagetti and pizza were as good as any fine Italian restaurant. Gorgeous quiet romantic setting. Ate indoors and followed on with drinks in secluded garden area. It's our art night in Dalat. Wished I found it sooner as we would have booked into their b & b.

We ate dinner at this restaurant. We ordered 2x pizzas and a chocolate cake. The pizza was baked quite good but the toppings was pretty boring. The pizzas came on different times so when mommy pizza arrived my friend was served his dessert.

I don't usually review restaurants because they usually fall short of 5 stars. Great food is often let down by poor service or vice versa but not in this case.

Emai hits the spot in each and every way.
Firstly the setting is so romantic and beautiful (you can choose from eating inside, which offers a very comfortable and cosy feeling) we opted to sit outside in their gardens. So peaceful and beautiful. The smell of wild flowers adds to this restaurants beautiful quaint charm.

The food was absolutely delicious. Well done to the chef. My husband and I have eaten in many places in Italy and the quality of ingredients and scrumptious flavours matched or even surpassed many Italian restaurants we have eaten at in Italy.

The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. I honestly couldn't find one fault or down side to eating here. We loved it so much we returned again (sadly we are leaving today) but if we hadn't we would have returned again.

The restaurant offers hotel accommodation (in a B&B style) we are gutted we hadn't heard of this gem of Da Lat earlier as we would have most certainly stayed with them.

I cannot recommend this place enough. 5 star food, ambience and staff. You won't regret a visit.

Dear David -- we all at émai are so, so very moved by your review.

If we could give you a five-star rating back we would!

It is comments like yours that make it all more than worthwhile to us. Sometimes one pops up once in a while and it makes our entire week, and motivates us to continue doing our very best so we can continue delivering the most beautiful experience that we can.

Hello, romantic and fine dining seekers of the world. I had the privilege of dining at Emai twice. We had the chicken and the pizza, both were carefully prepared by a team of dedicated staff and served by the caring wait staff. They were very attentive and detailed in their work. Coffee and house wine are one of the best in Vietnam. Thanks so much, Emai, I'll be back.

Nice, friendly and very good English speaking staff. Peaceful, romantic place.
We had visited this place three times.
One time for breakfast - nice but a bit overprice (750k VND for three).
Two times for lunch and both were a bit disappointed. One first lunch we had
ordered spaghetti carbonara and pizza. Pizza come first a bit to spicy and spaghetti they forgot to prepare and bring it after we had remind staff about it.
Second lunch, again spaghetti carbonara (same as first time was good), artichoke soup (rest ok, but over priced), girl chicken (over priced and not cooked inside).
Deserts and coffee was the best!
Conclusion: very nice and peaceful place for coffee, desert and italian pasta.
Main dishes overpriced.
