We ate dinner here and enjoyed the tasting plate - in fact the "money bags" were the best I have ever had - so full of flavour and not dry at all. This shared dish was enjoyed by us both. We then ate the red snapper which was very nice. Service was very good - we would have been happy... More

Starter spring rolls were nice but it's was downhill from there. Asian mains were basically tasteless and they shouldn't have been. Saving grace was the solo waitress who worked very hard and it was fortunately inexpensive. All in all a real disappointment.

Although the place was short handed (1 waitress) when we were there, it is kinda of unhurried, laid back pace of the locals. That is if you are not in a hurry. Granted we were there just before their Tet celebration. Food is good/authentic but dont expect cuisine standards. Evening was enjoyable, which is most important.

Thank you for your review. There is one point that I would like to respond to and that was your reference to being 'short handed', or more to the point I would like to explain why we were short handed. You were in Vietnam during the TET lunar new year celebrations and could have not failed to notice that most... More

I visited this restaurant on my last two nights of my stay in Hoi An and they had good choice of items on the menu Asian and Western. Their prices are reasonable too. The service their was friendly and attentive, what I most liked was they didn't allow any hawkers into the restaurant; which was a welcome relief. I must... More

Big choice of dishes, all very good and all profits made are going to finance Project Indochina which makes it even more valuable..

Good food, lovely service, only moments from the hustle and bustle of the markets. And profits go to benefit disadvantaged children- well worth the visit.

This is a gem of a place. The owner greater us personally and had a chat with us about his restaurant, explaining that it was part of a NGO, to help train disadvantaged people in the area. That aside, it is a simple feel good place with a relaxed atmosphere, good vides, and value for money, fresh and delicious meals.... More

On our last night in Hoi An we dined at White Lotus, just away from the hustle and bustle of the crowded streets in the middle of the old town, but no less a culinary experience. It is also impressive that the NGO that runs the restaurant aids disadvantaged youths and trains them in the restaurant. The White Rose dumplings... More
