Great food with the usual great customer service from staff in Vietnam. The setting was brilliant overlooking the river. Only drawback was I saw one of the staff, a young guy who looked like he had a chefs hat on him, come out of the toilet without washing his hands??

The restaurant itself is beautiful, very nice view by the river. We found this place on TripAdvisor, the food is okay, not very tasty as we expected. We ordered a won ton soup, which has ridiculously small won ton filling ( as big as your thumb nail) with big sheets, never seen something like this. Crispy duck with tamarind sauce... More

Family and I enjoyed dinner here at a table overlooking the river. Extensive menu provides good choice of local and international foods with a good wine selection too. Outdoors is well protected from rain showers and is festooned with lovely lanterns that provide a beautiful backdrop. Service was efficient and courteous despite the restaurant being pretty busy. Food was really... More

When I first arrived I fell in love with the restuarant but I loeft fereling so disappointed.

Location by the river is really nice... too bad this is the only positive about this place. We were surrounded by large tourist groups. Ordered typical local food which was below average, really not nice. Staff is friendly.

We had our lunch here as part of our itinerary arranged by Asiana travel. This place has a lovely scenery facing the river. Shaded with trees with hanging lanterns made this place cozy. However, have noticed that it seems to cater more for small & big group tours thus, it gets crowded during meal time that slow the food serving.... More

The location is great if you love a good water view and the light thrown over the restaurant from the many pretty lanterns is inviting. However, its the choice of eatery for small and large tour groups, therefore the food is quite bland. Expensive as well compared to others in Hoi An. Having eaten in many restaurants in my visits...
