Also tables inside and up on the balcony. We ate in the courtyard which was really pretty. Staff very welcoming and friendly. Food gorgeous! We shared the lantern town starter... More

We stayed in Hoi An 5 nights and went to this restaurant three times. The food was excellent, the atmosphere, especially at night was brilliant, and Moon, our trainee waitress was exceedingly helpful, polite and friendly.

We had a lovely local meal in absolutely beautiful Surroundings. The waitress, Trang, was very sweet and accommodating. Affordable prices and great staff. The food is of high quality. Worth a try when in Hoi An mainly at night when all the lanterns are lit.

We waited for over an hour for our meal which is okay considering there was a scheduled power black out earlier in the evening and many other restaurants were closed causing this place to perhaps be busier than the staff are used to? We enjoyed the whole duck... More

As a family of 5 we ate at the Lantern Town restaurant and loved it. The children had fried rice and spring rolls, and the adults had fish in banana leaf and duck with cashew and basil. Meals were delicious, service was spot on and the passion fruit mojitos were divine!
