Description: We are proud to introduce the brand new venue Aubergine49 to Hoi An. Local son and chef Nguyen Nhu Thinh has spent 10 years abroad training with leading chefs such as Paul Gayler, Rick Stein and Seiji Yamamoto of Tokyo's Nihonryori Ryugin (a three Michelin starred restaurant). He has now returned home to create a fresh new venue with global flavours. Classically trained, the style of Chef Thinh's dishes combines classic French techniques with global flavours to create a modern contemporary menu of Eurasian cuisine firmly rooted in an Asian background.

Saw aubergine on trip advisor thought we would give it a go its outside the main touristy area of hoi an but what a great find its small and stylish and the food is Michelin star quality you would get back in England at a fraction of the cost . I had the pork belly omg melt in your mouth and so tasty presentation was excellent my wife had the chicken and again amazing. Defiantly worth a visit.

We arrived in Hoi An at lunchtime and after a morning of travelling we were ready for a good lunch. Staying in a homestay almost opposite the restaurant, we wandered over the road expecting nothing. What a wonderful surprise. Aubergine49 is in a private home where the ground floor has been tastefully converted into a restaurant. The chef, Thinh, spent 10 years learning his craft in England and Tokyo with top chefs, then went home and set up shop in his family home. He is a delightful young man with plans to help the disadvantaged youth of Hoi An. And what amazing food! I am vegetarian and enjoyed delicious food all over Vietnam, but the best dish of all was right here: an aubergine and tofu curry. Every mouthful a treat. Thinh's brother works as the waiter and was keen to help. A truly outstanding eating place. Thanks, Thinh.

This was a little bit more of a treat dinner during our stay. We had the fixed menu for 250k, our starters (squid and chicken skewers) were both incredible, the mains were good but not mind blowing as the starters were, same for the pudding. Service was charming and the whole experience felt special. Overall a nice evening and would recommend.

We are so glad that we decided to spend our last night in Hoi An at this restaurant. We sat on the patio, and enjoyed the full moon, lovely music, and delicious food. The service was excellent! Incredibly reasonable prices, too. We can't recommend Aubergine49 more!!
