Not busy on a Thurs eve, surprising!
Quiet, warm ambiance, (not freezing cold as everywhere else)
Friendly & attentive service.
Good reasonable french wine that wasn't corked!
Excellent fresh food- Papaya salad, crispy spring rolls, Tofu & very fresh Guylan.
Very good home made sorbet as well.

And reasonably priced. Ten times better than their other oriental competitor across the way!
Well done.

First sit outstide and watch the sun go down over the Sh Zayed mosque from the beach. Check!
Second - enjoy the tasting appetizers and the recommendations of the chef at Hoi An. Impeccable service coupled with Tiger shrimp, Duck and Beef dishes for the three of us. Portions are more than adequate but not overdone and each one was delicious. Fragrant rice added to but did not detract from the delicate flavors of each dish. Desert - Mango soup? Yes Mango puree with slices of mango and coconut ice cream. Oh did I forget to mention the tiny little green apple sorbet that came to cleans the palate after the appetizer?? A perfect touch. It's been years since I have had a Vietnamese meal and this one brought back many good memories and tastes. I'll definitely go back!

Lovely setting to sit outside in this restaurant as part of the Shangri-La Hotel, a new food experience and most enjoyable.

I ordered a set menu and my husband ordered a main meal. That was the perfect amount for the both of us to share everything with some leftovers for later. The wait staff were very friendly and accommodating which added to the enjoyable meal.

We ate here recently and found it a bit "soulless" in atmosphere, not the best service and the food was disappointing.

Atmosphere.....there wasn't any. All other diners looked disinterested and despite being over 50% occupied it was very quiet.

Service.....started very well but after starters it slipped. Quite a wait for table to be cleared and for main course to come, then long wait again for clearance and then it looked as if we weren't going to get the bill at all. Our payment was still sat on the table as we left and there was no acknowledgement that we were leaving full stop.

Food......starter was good but most of what we had was raw so was going to be tasty anyway. The main courses we had we all just a bit gloopy. We're used to Vietnamese food so it wasn't normal standard.

Maybe just an off night for them but we certainly won't be hurrying back. Shame as we had heard good things.
