“Pricy and bland”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

Our waiter was grumpy. The mackrel all too dry, the rise was semi cold and the beef noodle totally without taste - but the price was endeed in the high end. If it wasn't for the great view this joint would had closed long ago.

“Not Worth it!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

The Food was tasteless - the worst vietnamese I have had in 3 weeks in Vietnam.
On top of that too expensive
- and the waitresses not friendly AT ALL.
WILL NOT BE BACK.

“half good, half bad”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013

We ate here last night We got one of the coveted tables on the upstairs terrace but after that it started to go wrong. I asked for the Imperial Hue salad, I even pointed at the entry on the menu under Vietnamese specials.The waitress took the menu away, flipped to the salad section and pointed - I pointed at the same salad and she nodded.

She came back to ask if we had ordered beer when she had already asked us if we wanted Larue (the local beer). Then she happily delivered prawn fritters when my husband had ordered crab rolls. When questioned another waitress confirmed they were in fact crab rolls (albeit flat). So we didn't have high hopes - but the starters were great, really tasty.

It all went wrong with the main courses. My Pho was godawful: no herbs, no chillies, no chilli sauce, no lime - in fact no condiments at all. The broth tasted like bath water and the squid was so rubbery I nearly broke my brace. My husband's prawn curry had potatoes and carrots and no flavour. Overall very disappointing

“Great ambience with a table on the balcony”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant has the best location overseeing the river and the An Hoi bridge - just make sure they have a table for you on the balcony.

The menu was very extensive - both Vietnamese and international selection. Originally we craved for some pizzas but it was not available at the time for our visit. We finally picked hot and sour prawn soup as the starter to share, which was very delicious - similar to Thai Tom Yum soup. This certainly gave us more appetite. I had a seafood spaghetti in tomato sauce - it had great taste with nice shrimps and calamari. My partner had the grilled fish which turned out to be really juicy and tasty.

This would not be a fine dining experience but certainly worth for a visit as you are in the center of the town!

“One of the best evenings”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Hoi An is certainly one of my best experiences in Vietnam and this restaurant so well situated along the river is a good part of it - we ordered a regional meal and it was really a treat : tasty, full of flavours, original. We really has a very nice evening.
