“Yummy Food..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The restaurant is housed in an old colonial building in the heart of Hoi An's Ancient Town. It has large dining areas on both floors, and a trio of tables on the balcony upstairs. The balcony boast a very nice view of the ancient city. The menu is a selection of Vietnamese street food. This restaurant is an absolute must-visit.

“Crispy pork belly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Seriously, the best meal we had in Vietnam. I love Vietnamese food and to be honest it was the deciding factor in choosing Vietnam over other destinations. And although it is not a true authentic dish, pork belly sure is and the way it was made was out of this work good. Chunks of five spice seasoned pork belly cut into small chunks and fried until perfectly crispy on the outside and tender and moist inside. It was served with red risotto rice uniquely made and accompanied by side order of Morning glory vegetable ( a staple vegetable in Vietnam and unfortunately hard to come by in the states).
The advanced booking necessary seemed odd for the town but after visiting, its reputation is well earned. Give it a try...

“Good Appetizers and Curry”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Four of us went to Morning Glory. You usually need a reservation. It is crowded most of the time and seating is tight. All the food is fresh and plentiful.

“Good. But over-hyped surely?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Here we go again. Another restaurant drowning in 5 star, superlative reviews. As if they were written under the influence. In the cold sober light of early evening, which is how we found it, this eatery is serving good home-style cooking (well at least when and where I was brought up in the Far East) and that's all. It's not "the best food I've eaten in Vietnam" and I hope I'll get a chance to eat somewhere much better. Sure, we've had the misfortune of eating in worse places, but also a few equally or more enjoyable meals at places we can't even see listed on TA. Tonight we had Hoi An chicken rice, tofu spring roll, fish in caramel sauce, chicken curry, bitter melon and beef broth. Prices are highish by Vietnam standards, but this is Hoi An and a celebrity chef with cookbook! Well, if everyone is raving about the food here, I need to get my dad's housekeeper and cook back to open a restaurant. She'd also be a lot tougher than me as a TA reviewer! Morning Glory has several sister eateries in Hoi An: including Cargo Club and The Market. Let's hope the proprietor and chef does not spread herself over too many places and see standards drop. So, a dependable choice but don't get over-awed by the hyperbole in many of the reviews about it here.
