We went with a big group of 20 people and had a very good meal. Was a little more expensive but worth it.

“Food was good but not much else”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

This place is between the beach and the town. There's not much else around so it doesn't get much passing trade. Which will explain why it was empty on the night we visited. The result being no atmosphere. Maybe it's buzzing when full.
We ordered a bottle of white wine. It wasn't cold so had to sit in ice water for a while before we could drink it.
The food was really good. But It was very expensive for Vietnam and wasn't any better than what we'd had in much cheaper places.
The service was good.
If you want fancy, I'd suggest try somewhere else.

“Charming cooking class, must-do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

We did the Gourmet ... Cooking class at Goda restaurant and we loved it. We started at the market in Hoi An, where we were guided by Mrs Linh who introduced us to all the local products including tasting. We bought some fresh ingredients for the cooking and then left for the restaurant (short drive outside of Hoi An's old town, beautiful place!). There we were warmly welcomed before starting the lesson: a three course menu, fresh, healthy, local and quite easy to cook. After the lessons, we enjoyed our own production with a nice glass of wine. All-in-all a great experience, we will definitely go back next time!

“Beautiful restaurant with very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

The first thing you notice about Goda is how beautifully they've built and decorated the space. The welcome is warm. The service we had from Thao was excellent. And the food was quite good. A very good version of banana flower salad was service with duck. My only criticism of the meal was that the duck was a little dry and not as spicy as I like. The squid with lemon grass and chili was amongst the best I've had anywhere. The mango smoothie was terrific. I found it sad and surprising that they were nearly empty. This is a place that should be attracting more business.

“Great cooking experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Hands-on cooking experience was one of our must-dos when touring Vietnam and we're so pleased we chose Goda. From the outset, this was a very professional and well thought through class with a thorough demonstration of how each dish is put together, followed by your own attempts at creating it yourself, but with expert guidance always at hand. The end results were really good and then you get to eat what you've just put together! It was a great legacy from the trip because we have brought new skills back home. If you like Vietnamese food and like to cook, go Goda!
