Reviewed 7 October 2017

Like everyone else, Mr. Lai, approached us on the street and coaxed us back to his shop. We were already looking for a tailor shop and we figured we would check it out. We ended up buying a lot of clothes (4 suits, 12+ shirts, 4 coats). He turned everything around in less than a week for our return through the area. So far everything is holding up very well. The fit on everything is perfect.

I bumped into Mr Lai with my wife as we cycled through Hoi An old town. We decided to have a few things tailored while we were there and with back and forth fittings and trying on our clothes our experience was made even more interesting as we became more and more acquainted with Mr Lai and his wonderful staff. His cousin Ha even had a cake made for my daughters birthday and bought her some flowers plus arranged a wonderful sea from restaurant for her birthday meal.
It was a chance encounter that really made our holiday special so thanks to Mr Lai and his family for making us some great clothes and making us feel so at home in Hoi An.

Mr. Lai met us in a coffee bar and let us to his shop. He was very friendly and chatty and, even though we did not come to beautiful Hoi An to buy tailored clothes, we trusted him immediately.

However, once in the shop, Mr. Lai got a bit pushy up to the point that the visit became uncomfortable and awkward. Even so, we did order 2 shirts, which in the opinion of Mr. Lai was clearly not enough and Mr. Lai was not hiding his feelings for us. Which was disappointing, as we did show him our trust and did support his business, which resulted in a successful sale.

When we came back the next day to pick up the shirts, we were impressed with the result and showed that to Mr. Lai. Mr. Lai, however, showed little interest in the after-sale service, which was conducted by his very friendly cousin, and only tried to push us to buy more product. We did end up buying 6 more shirts. Not, because of Mr. Lai's persistence, but because we were in the store and really liked the result of the first 2 shirts. We hoped to bring back Mr. Lai's smile and joyful personality. It did not.

When we came back the next day to pick up the 6 shirts, Mr. Lai continued to show lack of interest and it was again Mr. Lai's lovely cousin helping us with the fitting. The result, again, was impressive.

If Mr. Lai is willing to work of his after-sale skills and make sure customers not only leave satisfied with the product, but also with the service received, Mr. Lai's business can really take off and set itself apart from the hundreds of other tailors in Hoi An. We truly wish Mr. Lai and his family good luck and fortune with their business!

Mr Lai met us on the main street in Hoi An and led us to his shop. He is very friendly and continued to be friendly throughout all of our interactions. He has a good eye for style and he tailored a navy blue suit and pants that fit me perfectly! As with most shop keepers in Hoi An, Mr Lai will start with high prices and you can negotiate with him (you should). He is very deserving of a good price, however, since his clothes are of excellent quality (still cheaper than anything in North America).
Because his shop is a little bit out of the way and not on the main strip, Mr Lai does not need to charge as much overhead costs, so the prices are quite good here. A true hidden gem - thanks Mr Lai!
