“Wouldn't go back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

We went to the White Lotus because of the great reviews on trip advisor and were both very disappointed. The rice was cold, the garlic bread a piece of artificial cheese on white bread and my Vegeterian meal very boring. While we were eating we got heckled by locals selling goods three times, which is not something you expect a restaurant to allow while their customers are eating. The only positive about the restaurant is the good cause they support. Definitely would not go back or recommend to other travellers.

“As always, a great experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Have been a regular visitor to Hoi An for the last 6 years. The White Lotus is a spot I always gravitate to. The food, ambiance, and staff have never disappointed me. I often stop for a quick snack, the toasted ham and cheese is always good. It is the closest I've found to a Croque Monsieur in Hoi An. Great job, guys!

“Excellent service, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

White Lotus is only 100 meters from the gate of the Life Heritage Resort where we were staying which was very convenient. We had a lovely relaxed evening at an outside table, with great food and very friendly personal service. This restaurant offers buffet and a la carte options - we went for the menu. Prices were also good.
