“Golden service”
Reviewed June 2, 2014 via mobile

After stopping at Palm Garden Hotel me and the better half walked out the front to a bunch of shops and restaurants. I'm not one to give 5 stars because let's face it, it not Le Manior. But basic hospitality and friendliness of the owner and staff was a credit to the multi faced business which uses it's outlet to promote other services. The tables and floors were very clean and ready.
The food is good for the price and is a cheaper alternative to the hefty palm garden hotel charges, which the hotel need to learn the reasons why they have poor attendances.
Anyway the prawn spring rolls are a great way to kick off the meal and if you get there before 8pm they do a super mojito at happy hour by one get one free!
We stopped 3 times in 6 days because it was convenient after a busy day!
I would recommend at least once on your stay. :)

Thank Colin B

“Pushy owner”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

You cannot walk past without them pestering you. We had a meal that was ok nothing special. They are very rude about their neighbours and do not seem to have the friendly Vietnamese attitude. Would not go back

“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We were staying at the Palm Garden resort, but decided to venture over the road to the Golden Lotus. I suspect plenty of guests at the Palm Gardens do, and the trip is definitely a worthwhile one. The food here was inexpensive, and very fresh - we had calamari (absolutely beautiful), Vietnamese spring rolls, local fish with ginger - everything was fantastic, and there's good drink specials on here as well. The service was also very good - the chef (who I think is the mother of the main waitress) even came out for a chat about the meal. Would highly recommend this to others. We went back a few times!

“Excellent food & atmosphere ”
Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

After looking on trip advisor for places for dinner close by our hotel we came across the Golden Lotus.
We arrived to friendly staff who recommended dishes to us which we absolutely loved! The food was incredible & the staff were so friendly & accommodating. When we were ready to leave we asked if they could call us a cab, but instead they offered to drive us home. I highly recommend this place!!

“Lovely food, atmosphere and owner! ”
Reviewed May 23, 2014 via mobile

We have eaten at this restaurant twice during our stay in Hoi An. On both occasions we have really enjoyed the food. The menu has a great selection of meat, fish and vegetarian Vietnamese dishes but also does good pizzas if you fancy that instead. I would particularly recommend the rice pancakes and the chicken with ginger which is served in a steaming hot casserole type bowl - delicious! They serve cold beer at a good price and wine, which is a bit more pricey. My only suggestion would be that the main meals are all served together as my meal arrived quite some time before my husbands! At the end of both nights the owners husband very kindly drove us back to our hotel in their mini bus. Wonderful owners and wonderful food, thank you!
