Down by the river off a lane full of tourist shops you will find Mai Fish which is basically a few tables in a little garden area. We were instantly made welcome with none of the usual mix of over the top politeness and disdain reserved for tourists but genuine friendliness. This is because at Mai Fish they know what... More

My daughter and I found this restaurant on our first day in Hoi An. At first the servers seem curt, but they are actually nice as you get to know them. The location is good (down by the river) and the food is excellent. We ended up coming back here often during our trip. We would recommend the Duck Pho... More

We had wandered around town looking for a restaurant to cater for our dietary needs. We walked into the back of this restaurant when we saw the lovely fresh foods being prepared in the kitchen. We didn’t realize that it fronted onto the river, so we had a nice view of the activities along the river. We ordered the rice... More

We stumbled upon the back entrance of this restaurant while cycling around the ancient town and decided to give it a try. It's nice to sit at the back of the restaurant if you want to enjoy your food without all the crowds and noises at the front of restaurant facing the river. We had the Luc Lac beef and... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel as a spot for both tourists and locals. Great location in Old Town and beautiful decor. Also, as a vegetarian, there were good food options for me, and my meat-eating friend loved her dish as well! Definitely recommend.

We visited this restaurant for the first time on our most recent trip to Hoi An, and then went back twice. It is tucked away overlooking the river behind the Japanese Bridge in the Old Town. The meals were delicious. There are obviously cheaper places to eat in Hoi An, but this dining experience was well worth paying a little... More

The menu was fantastic, and there's happy hour prices on inventive and delicious cocktails from 4-7pm. The menu is diverse and the food we had was delicious. The menu included light fare, local favorites, western favorites, and desserts. It's not a cheap restaurant, but I think the price is more than fair for what you get. The service was attentive,...

One of a few restaurants owned by same family, also mango mango I believe. Fabulous spring rolls followed by really large and delicious large prawns. A duck leg curry, little bland, and red snapper. All dishes nicely presented and good service.

After being sent to Mai Fish by a couple of chefs we know in New Zealand we found the food to be excellent even though a bit on the high end. It is located on a lovely spot along the river. The service was professional. Only down side was after making a reservation I was seated next to a column... More
