Description: This is a recently opened restaurant in Hoi An and is not the same as the one of the same name currently listed on Tripadvisor (that establishment has changed its name). With a view over the river this lovely family owned and operated spot offers delicious, fresh food in clean surroundings. We especially enjoyed the grilled snapper - seasoned with herbs and wrapped in banana leaves for only $6! Nice selection of white wines available as well, reasonably priced and served ice cold. The young owners Huyen and Dung are real foodies and it sure shows in their service and food offerings. Loved it.

“A little gem of a restaurant with riverside views”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

This is our second visit in a week. Small restaurant with riverside terrace. Fantastic Vietnamese food. Run by a young couple both with 5* experience which shows in the excellent service. We have been staying in the Sunrise Resort - well worth the 60,000 dong taxi fare. Prices here very reasonable compared to old town and food is superb!

“Night fishing”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Visited this place last night. Excellent service and excellent food. Sat watching a couple of locals spin out their fishing net across the river in the dark. Looks like hard work for little reward, but they persevered and sure enough they caught some small fish.
Food quality brilliant, good prices and the beer was ice cold.
Highly recommend.

“Fantastic eating in Hoi An”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

The Riverside Garden Restaurant and Cooking School is just outside the lovely old city of Hoi An. It is run by a lovely young woman who us a graduate of the Koto Cooking School in Hanoi.
We ate four delicious authentic Vietnamese dishes while sitting at a table overlooking the river. The atmosphere was calm and peaceful and the service top notch. And to top off a great evening, it wasn't expensive. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.
