“Just the best you must go there.”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

My wife and I spent last week in Hoi An and visited White Lotus Restaurant several times, it became one our favourites. The food was great every time and we always tried something new each time we ate there. We think the idea of all the profits going to help disadvantaged young people & Project Indochina aid programs is just fantastic. The restaurant also trains and employs these young people is such a great idea . The staff were always attentive and explained how the dishes should be eaten, and always had a smile on their faces. We congratulate all the people who work there and wish them a brighter future than would otherwise not be there for them. Thanks to Geoff for being so helpful in explaining the Indochina project we look forward to becoming more involved with this. Honestly if you are in Hoi An and you don't go to this restaurant you have missed one of the best places to eat.
Thanks again John & Galina

“Deserves all the great ratings”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We had been in Vietnam for two weeks, and discovered this restaurant which is close to Anantara resort. The food was simply delicious - by far the best we had in Vietnam, and it was an added bonus that the profits go to Project Indochina aid programs. Staff were delightful - friendly, attentive and knowledgeable without being intrusive. Wine list was also impressive. All in all the best place to eat in Vietnam!

“One of the best meals we had during 3 weeks in Vietnam”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

We had dinner at the White Lotus while staying at the Anatara Resort. We chose a set menu to give us a well balanced menu and were not disappointed.The food was delicious and the service excellent. An added bonus is that the restaurant employs and trains disadvantaged young people, giving them a good start in the industry. We will go back next time we are in Hoi An.

“Best restaurant in Hoi An”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We've been to Vietnam three times and love Vietnamese ciusine very much. The food was delicious, the best we had in Hoi An. (There is also western food on the menu.) The White Lotus is at the edge of the old town where live is not that busy (what we enjoyed very much). We enjoyed the good atmosphere. But last not least the very good service! I warmly recommend this restaurant.
And as we learned the profit of restaurant goes to Project Indochina aid programs in Vietnam.
