“Awful”
Reviewed April 12, 2010

We were staying at the Ha An Hotel and decided on our last night to eat in the garden resturant. The service was sooooo slow and the food was just plain average. We were shocked because we ate each morning at the same resturant but inside and it was amazing - the best breakfasts in Vietnam.

“peacefull garden setting”
Reviewed January 5, 2010

the restaurant of the famed ha an hotel, undisputed number 1 hotel in hoian on TA several years running. Ate there once with oliver stone & co and they were very happy. i recommend the vietnamese food there and not so much the western food since chef and owner are vietnamese. go there, very relaxing scenic, peacefull garden setting with lawn and coconut trees.

“What a Lovely LIttle Place! Like a Secret Garden.”
Reviewed November 17, 2009

Memory Cafe is located at the Ha An Hotel, about a 10 minute walk east of the Old City. It is open all day, but the best time is for dinner, when the put tables out on the grass, light up Christmas lights on the hotel, set up the white tablecloths with mood lamps at every table, and play nice music, all set in the gardenlike atmosphere of Ha An's courtyard lawn. It is cozy, romantic, and totally enjoyable. The service is friendly, efficient and attentive, always eager to please. The food is flavorful and throughly enjoyable, focusing mostly on local Vietnamese and Hoi An specialties, but also with pizza and some Western food. Prices are higher than normal as you'd expect from a hotel restaurant, but this is not an expensive place by Western standards at all, very cheap by those standards, just a bit higher than the going rate around town.

We ate at Memory Cafe about four times during the week, and it was so pleasurable that we just kept coming back. They also do a great breakfast buffet.
