This was our 2nd visit on a Thursday evening around 8:30pm. In Dubai this is not peak time for dinners. Although the restaurant was barely busy, we found the service to be clumsy and somewhat uncoordinated.

You will not believe me when I tell you about the warm hospitality that greets you when you enter Hoi An restaurant. The level of service is a rare find in Dubai: friendly waitresses that are well informed about the dishes they serve and have a good feeling about how much attention you need. My husband and I dined here... More

There was... More

The restaurant is not big, there is about more or less 12 tables and the day we went there the restaurant was not even full. We went there for the Saturday Brunch. Off the bat, it took a... More

I visited this restaurant as a solo and the wait staff could not have been more helpful. They directed me to a choice that was perfect for me. They were quick, efficient, friendly, professional - everything that you would want for an enjoyable meal especially when eating alone.... and the food was really good as well!!

Great Valentine's dinner. Deinoftely best Vietnamese in town. Although it was a set menu they still had the a-la-carte option. I am not a fan of set menus but it was perfectly prepared. Great work. Excellent value for money. Nice setting.

It's first time for me and will never been last time. One of my friends recommended to me and it was first time to try Vietnamese food which exploded by details so easy for me to picture the dishes. The manager was taking care of my table and others as well.
