“Great service and decent food”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Having visited Orivy twice and taken a cooking class with my girl friend we were both pleased with our experience. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff were excellent and the food for the most part was outstanding. My one complaint is that the quality of the Pho varied from day to day (once it is was the best we had our whole trip while the next it was the worst). Their cooking class was great though! We had one on one attention during the cooking which made it feel more like cooking with a friend or family. We would return to Orivy in a heart beat.

“Little peace garden of yummyness!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

Went here with my mum on our first night in hoi an after seeing that our hotel's restaurant charged more than double what we'd paid elsewhere in the country.

I came on here and mainly chose geographically and also because of the lovely things others have said. We were not disappointed. It's a quiet place where they only did a few covers. The waiters were chatty and eager to practice their English and teach some Vietnamese.

We chose off the local menu which was all delicious and varied. They're more than happy to explain what things are!

3 course meal (which left us bursting at the seams) plus drinks came to £15.

Tip: the location is beautiful, but at night there are lots of bugs/midges (as there are at night, outdoors, in beautiful lotus gardens!). Just make sure you're well bug sprayed and wearing long shirt/trousers.

“Beautiful setting, nice service, delicious food”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

Only because we were lazy after a long day full of activities did we discover this restaurant. A quaint garden setting with beautiful and inviting decor. Charming, attentive service staff. First surprise was the presentation of something as simple as a mango juice (in a delicate quarter liter glass carafe) and then our food came, which was delicious and reasonable in price. A bit off the beaten path, this restaurant deserves more attention.

“A break from the busy centre of Hoi An”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

-The atmosphere was my favourite part about the restaurant (wasn't on a busy road where you are hassled by sellers)
-The food was good and well presented
-The service was great (only another couple in the restaurant)
-You can find a cheaper restaurant with the same quality food but the surroundings make it worth while
