a truly moving experience, not just because of the very warm and personal service (the gentleman serving us seemed genuinely chuffed by our obvious enjoyment of the food, not to mention our sheer gluttony!), but also because we knew that a portion of the income goes to charity - the food itself was excellent; absolutely ridiculous value..our tip was probably excessive, but we were moved by the overall experience..

We stayed in Hoi An for a few nights and although we like to try as many different places as possible, we just couldn't stay away from the Blue Dragon.
The food is good (and good value), the drinks are one of the cheapest in comparison to other similar restaurants, and the staff are friendly. It has an awesome location on the banks of the river so you can sit outside and watch the world go by.
This restaurant is also steeped in history, ask the owner to show you the photos of the flooding, you will not believe your eyes. Also take a look at the water levels marked on the wall inside the restaurant for the various years.
The best thing about this place is that it donates a portion of all its profits to a charity.
All in all, you can't go wrong, do yourseflf a favour and go and have a meal there!

blue dragon is owned by friendly mr. trung and his familly. went there several times and always enjoyed it. the vietnamese food is a sure thing. so is the pizza and the duck a l'orange. if you hang out by the old market go there, it's very well located on the river. i usually would come early for dinner to have a few beers on the dock in front of the restaurant watch the boat ferry activity, then walk in for dinner when hungry.

We just spent a few days in Hoi An while travelling through Vietnam. We're both foodies and take great delight in eating our way through our tavels. Hoi An has some great eateries. We ate in the Mango Rooms and the Morning Glory reastaurants and enjoyed some really outsanding meals, but really aimed at the tourist and expensive by Hoi An standards, but very worthwhile.
However, on our 1st morning we stumbled upon a little riverside place called the Blue Gragon, just up from the market, Japanese Bridge side. Turns out it is a non profit place for the aid of local children. I had a set menu at only 90,000 dong which was 5 courses, beautifully cooked - white rose, spring rolls, beef pho, etc. Too much really for lunch but hey!
We returned for early evening drinks and I had Gin & Tonics that are great, at 25,000 dong, so a few were imbibed. We returned again for an eveing meal and another lunch there during our stay. Every time they delivered, the gentleman there is a really good fellow. They deserve everyone's support if you're in Hoi An, and you will get a lot of pleasure too.

We went back to this place a number of times while we were in Hoi An. The food is really cheap, its in a great location, you can sit out in the window and watch the world go by next to the riverside........and most importantly the food is all really good. We're quite picky about our food, and I'd highly recommend this place to anyone. It almost seems to cheap to be true!
