The food at Ixora is good and staff is very friendly. A little point to note that the food preparation can be quite long, so best to manage your time around that. The average waiting time here is around 15-20 minutes for the food after you placed your order. My favourite dish is Mixed Rice.

We were cycling by one day and were drawn to the beautiful, clean sidewalk accessible cafe. Sadly, we were headed to a coffee shop we had heard about, but invested a few minutes with the proprietor. She proudly showed us pictures online that reviewers had posted of her food. Honestly, it all looked great. So, after a morning of coffee, cycling and broken equipment, we found our way back to Ixora (The Spice of Life). She is very new and you can translate that to super clean. The chairs and tables are westerner friendly (taller than many Vietnamese establishments) and we truly picked our meal from the pictures online, rather than the menu. We ordered lime juice with chia, which was perfect. Everyone does great lemon juice here, which is what they call it. We also had the crispy fried pork and shrimp rolls. Again, excellent. She makes great nuoc mam and each dish was also accompanied by a sweet, ginger, chili sauce. These rolls were light and crispy. They were made with dried shrimp. Next, we had the calamari, cuttlefish, or squid. It was a little heavily battered than we expected, but that was because the batter had sprigs of cilantro in it. This, too was very good. The final dish was grilled ribs. They were the very best of the meal. The were marinated and slow cooked in a traditional Vietnamese sweet bbq sauce (maybe a Vietnamese char siu) and served with yellow noodles, chili sauce and micro greens. I love Hoi An and this restaurant is an example of why. With big chain hotels staking property lines and so much new construction in the area, I envision this restaurant really bringing in crowds. It is charming, clean, delicious and the couple that own it are very gracious. I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did <3

This is a recently opened restaurant run by a young family with a lovely daughter (Lam) just a short drive out of the main tourist area of Hoi An. It is well worth the trip as the cuisine is genuine Vietnamese and they will adapt the menu to your taste and are well up on allergies. My wife is coeliac and she had some of the best food ever. We eat there 3 times and they recommended the dishes for us to try.....FIRST CLASS. Reasonably priced and just opposite the Hoi An Boutique Hotel. By the way their egg coffee is definitely worth a try....AMAZING. Support this place they deserve to be successful.

Across the road opposite to the Boutique Resort Hotel in Hoi An. We were attracted by friendly waving and ventured into the Ixora with intrigue. There is an enticing indoor and outdoor seating area which has warm and inviting spaces. The food is local and very good . The overall experience was very worthwhile. Whether for a meal or just a beer this place is clean and inviting. The two delightful ladies there very helpful when asked about the food and size of portions they served. They also provide a very good tailoring service. We ordered blouses, shirts and trousers which we collected but could have been delivered. Their attention to detail both tailoring and culinary throughout our several visits was excellent and most impressive. A definite must especially if you want to experience a personal and caring experience. Hearfelt thanks to the wonderful Ixora Cafe for a lovey time from the Blue People.

We only visited as it was across the road from hotel, but were amazed at the freshness and quality of food. Everything cooked fresh and as pescatarian they changed from meat to seafood. 3 course meal cost £18 for food we would have paid £100s back in UK

So we had read a few good reviews before we got to Hoi An, looking for somewhere authentic and good value near our accommodation. Tried for dinner and we came back every day for lunch until we left Hoi An! Yes, food and drinks were delicious, but service from ladies was amazing. So lovely to chat with, so accommodating, so generous. Fresh fruit offered after every meal at no charge. When we departed they even gifted us homemade moon cakes for full moon festival. Oh, and don't forget to try the banana pancake, oh my, best ever! We couldn't resist getting these every meal. We will remember this place long after our Vietnam trip is over.

Everything is right in this quaint little restaurant: it is nicely decorated, the friendly owners do everything to make your visit a memorable one and the food, wow!! Maybe the best we had during our holiday in Vietnam. All the dishes were light, packed with flavour with just enough spice and looked beautiful. We especially loved the prawns. The restaurant owners also exploit a beautiful tailor shop that is above the restaurant. We bought a few items that all suited perfectly, our daughters were very happy with their tailored summer dresses. We were only a few days in Hoi An. Eating at Ixora was definately one of the highlights. It was just perfect. When we departed, the owner even gave us a jar of her sauce and nuts. Ixora has a warm place in our hearts.

So having read the reviews about Ixora being the best meal others had had in Vietnam, it’s fair to say I was veeery sceptical. That said, we wanted something close to our accomodation as we had our tired young children with us. I like my food, and we’ve enjoyed some wonderful food in Vietnam but this was hands down the best meal we’ve had in this lovely country, and easily the best value. The staff were amazing too, like most of the people we’ve been fortunate enough to encounter in Vietnam to be fair. I’ve never posted a TA review, but Icora inspired me to do so. 11/10.

We returned to ixora after visiting many times in 2019. We were greeted with a warm welcome and delicious food, this lady knows how to work flavours. We also discovered she had moved her tailoring business on site and so had a linen shirt made, excellent quality and a good price. We will definitely be visiting again.

The two friends who run the restaurant and the tailor are so lovely. We were staying in the hotel opposite and first went across for a meal which was delicious. The coconut coffee was the best we have had so far. A special mention must be made to the tailor who made the most beautiful clothes. We had a few clothes made in Hoi An town but the ones made here were of a better quality and far cheaper. Husband and son got multiple shirts made in linen with the wonderful coconut buttons. Each time I went in, they ended up copying the dresses I was wearing for me in materials of my choice. They had a wide range of materials upstairs and loads of swatches downstairs. Their craftsmanship was superb and their copies were better than my original dresses! My daughter got a silk dress and a silk skirt made, each time showing photos of what she wanted made. She also got a linen dress made from a photo which looked incredible. The prices were so reasonable and the turnaround time was less than 24 hours. Now that they have our measurements we will probably send them requirements of what we want made as they said they can send them to the UK. Or even better, we may revisit! Such a lovely experience.

This is a true hidden gem, wonderful array of different foods provided by the fantastic team. If you get the opportunity please call in and give it a try, especially the Hoi An pizza starter and the sharing platter. They also provide a laundry service at $1 per kilo for good measure…definitely a place not to miss!!

The Food is incredible! Fresh & well seasoned! The staff is very kind & engaged. They served us a vegan cao lao version, eventhough it was not on the menu. Really the best food we had in Vietnam. Go there !

Being too tired to travel into Hội An on our fist night, we stumbled across the Ixora as is just across the way from our hotel the Botique Hội An resort. What a fantastic find it turned out to be, Lin and Tiy looked after us right through our stay. On our first visit we were fed like royalty, got offered to have a suit made, they did our washing and ironing and I even saw Lin take one customer to have his hair cut. First class service, delivered by lovely people and all at a price which is quite frankly unbelievable. As an example a lunch with drinks averages at around £6 The food is superb-.

We visited this restaurant on numerous occasions while staying at the Hoi An Boutique resort. They offer a large variety of food choices. We always ate traditional Vietnamese and it was excellent. Each evening we would call in for a night cap. They offer a large range of cocktails. The ladies in our party tried most of them and declared that they were all very good, as were the various coffees. I liked the iced coffee. However, best of all was the quality of service and attention. The two young ladies who ran it were utterly charming. Nothing was too much trouble for them and on each visit we were welcomed as friends. Thank you ladies at the Ixora we will remember you fondly.

Final lunch in Hoi An before departing and quickly realised how much we should have utilised this restaurant more during our stay. Best coffee we have had in Vietnam, followed by amazing food! Money bags and Sweet and Sour Seafood Soup cannot be recommended higher. Extremely fresh, excellent prices and exceptional hospitality!
