Always a delight to be back at the Hoi An restaurant. This beautiful restaurant tucked away in the Shangri La hotel is a real find. The service from start to finish is excellent, you always feel like a VIP when you visit here. The menu is not extensive but all their dishes are done to perfection. This time we went for the set menu. Little bites of heaven on a plate. Five individual little starters followed by steak, sea bass and prawn, with there wonderful flavours when they hit the taste buds. We accompanied the meal with fried rice. Dessert was truly sumptuous, a mango puree with coconut ice cream, just slips down. This was followed with jasmine tea. I hate to find any faults with the Hoi An but my one concern was they do not serve a medium sweet wine by the glass (they are available by the bottle, but my husband prefers beer) I find this type of wine goes best with the food e.g. Guwurztraminer or Riesling.

Service was the best that I have ever seen in 10 years of visiting Dubai.

Food was out of this world. They tailored it to what I like. They were so so helpful. Every dish was a taste explosion.

Have to admit, this is the "one" if your looking for that special meal.

On a friend's recommendation, I tried Hoi An while staying at the Shangri La. The taster menu gives a flavour of each of the six starters, each bursting with flavour and beautifully put together. Overall, this is a very competent dish. The chef's special of sea bass cooked with lemongrass in a banana leaf was excellent. The fish was cooked to perfection and the flavours really well balanced. Each dish was served piping hot and the ingredients came across as very fresh and prepared with genuine care. Service matches the food here; very good but not over the top. When I arrived, the lady at the desk told me that Hoi An is as good as Hakkasan and Zuma. Whilst I prefer the atmosphere at both of those restaurants, this place did not disappoint and I would happily eat here again.
