We went to Citronella for dinner on the night of the full moon lantern festival. The whole town was heaving but our meal was delicious and enjoyable. I had a Vietnamese chicken curry and it was the best quality chicken I'd eaten all trip - I'd highly recommend this dish. Given how busy the restaurant was, the service was good... More

Following a group tour of Old Town Hoi An, we all met for dinner at Citronella Cafe. What a lovely restaurant, right on the river. You can sit on the patio at the front for drinks and enjoy the sights and sound of the area. The hustle and bustle of the street vendors and the action taking place on the... More

The Citronella Cafe, even though we were with a large group of 40, was very good. The view of the Thu Bon River from the patio was stunning. The food was very good and plentiful.

Have to say that this trip is interesting to us, stop by this coffee shop after my friend has just bought souvenirs, we enjoy the minute coffee break with coffee, taste is very special, medium bold Strange, very cheerful staff and especially seats can look around the street. I like to taste coffee here.

Spring rolls were good. Grilled chicken was average. Would expect more taste in a vietnamese restaurant.
