This is a “slow food” restaurant restaurant with excellent food, great service, and a nice outdoor bar right on the river.
Favorite Dish: There were five of us and we all ordered something different. Everyone left happy

Tam Tam cafe is one of my favorite in Hoi An.
It´s a cafe/bar/restaurant that is situated 2 blocks from the river and the place has two floors aswell as outdoor seating.
It has very long opening hours, but i generally preferred the place for breakfast as i really liked what they had on offer there.
They have free wifi and it worked really fine when i was there.
The place comes to live on the second floor in the evening where there is a backpacker style bar with a pool table.
I was there briefly one night, but better leave it to other to describe that part as i was only there very briefly.
Favorite Dish: I liked their breakfast a lot.
I tried several things from their breakfast menu and always left the place happy with a full stomach..

These two cafe cum restaurants sit opposite each other in the heart of the Old Town and are housed in traditional buildings. The decor is authentic local-style, with hanging bamboo lamps, a high wooden ceiling, and fantastic wooden figurines. I had a nice banana and chocolate crepe and a coffee at the Cargo Cafe and sat outside and watched the locals and tourists walk by. Both offer pretty similar dishes and ambience inside.

This lovely looking restaurant is housed in a French colonial era house opposite the Trieu Chau Assembly Hall and serves mostly Asian dishes. I had Hoi An's speciality noodle dish cao lau, a tasty soup made with thick wheat noodles, meat and aromatic vegetables. It was influenced by imported Japanese soba noodles. Local folklore says that the dish must be made from the water of a specific well, the Ba Le Well, while others argue that it is simply the distinctive noodles that make it unique. Whatever way, it was quite tasty as a small dish to have for lunch. Nice place that's out the way of the more busier establishments.

We entered the restaurant and was served, the drinks were served reasonably quick but all of the meals took forever. The first meal came out which was some strips of beef and 4 slices of cucumber. We waited another 20 -25 minutes and the second dish came out, this was placed in front of me, the meat was bland and not very tasty for pork. Now we waited for the final dish. 30 minutes later we started to become frustrated, people around us who ordered after us were eating their meals. After asking where the final meal was we had to wait another 15 minutes for it to arrive. During this, the table next to us was given their seafood cocktail, when i looked at it closely all i saw was 3 shrimps and a pink moose. When the final dish finally arrived it was STONE COLD, we quickly sent it back. A few minutes later it returned but after we tried some we found it wasn't what we ordered and it was re-heated, another sign of a poor restaurant. The manager said that they gave me the meal that my friend was supposed to have, she ordered Chicken with lemon grass, I tasted no lemon grass and after looking at the remains noticed that there was none there (in other words they gave my meal a false name) After this we told them to get another, we waited another 10 minutes and then just payed for what we ate and then left. We ventured to Good Morning Vietnam and ordered some dessert - Caramelized apple and Ice cream, this came in 10 minutes and was delicious. Friends of ours was also at Champa and found raw chicken in their meal. If you want good food go to Good Morning Vietnam - A few doors down from Champa.

The Moon restaurant is designed firstly with comfort in mind…the service was good and the server’s friendly and fun…I returned for a second visit a few days later just for a coffee and had a few good laughs with the woman that was working that afternoon.
The building that this restaurant is located in looks to be from the outside hundreds of years old and in fact dates from the French Colonial period of Vietnam’s history.
My first visit here was with my cousin that I was traveling with throughout Vietnam. Both times that I visited I chose to sit indoors, although the option is there to sit outside at a smaller table next to the sidewalk.
Favorite Dish: Neither of us were terribly hungry the evening that we ventured here to eat…both of us deciding on the Pho that the restaurant served…not too exciting but normally a reliable choice. It was Pho…and we both enjoyed it.
I really enjoyed the ambiance here…and the Pho was good enough and not expensive. Exactly what the prices were I can’t remember….what makes this place stand out from the others in my mind was the decor, the building that the restaurant was housed in and the service, which was good and the servers fun to interact with.
If I was ever in Hoi An again….Id definitely return for a good meal.

If you are on a budget, do not worry, this will not break the bank. And if you are not traveling on a budget, do not worry, because you will still get a delicious local dish that you could have paid x5 times more for elsewhere.
I enjoy eating the street foods. It gives a more intimate experience while traveling and gets a more local flavor to your meals. Of the street stalls I visited in Hoi An, "Mr. Rin" was consistently the most cordial, friendly and least intrusive.
They did not pressure us to sit, to order. When we asked for more vegetables, they gave them at no cost. When we asked to have some rolls for carry away, they gave us a half dozen extra for free.
Favorite Dish: The menu is simple, including local specialties of noodles, soups and rice, like the rice flour dumpling with shrimp called "White Rose".
However, the favorite of mine is the "Cau Lao", which is a Vietnamese version of Chicken noodle soup with green vegetables.
Cost for all of the above will be 20,000 VND or less.
A cold beer was 4000 VND.

After travelling all over vietnam i know the problem about food in this country. Just take a look of a restaurants toilet and you know about the kitchen.
The River Lounge Restaurant at Nguyen Phuc Chu 35 is different.
It's clean, it's contemporary, it's Lounge!
Offering some typical vietnamese dishes like wok fried egg noodles with seafood, Hoian claypot or the grilled fish in banana leaf, you will be surprised, to find some austrian specialities on the menu! Managed by 3 young austrians the restaurant offers a quite good level of service.
"Lounging by the river" is the slogan you should follow:
Sit upstairs on the chilly lounging area - enjoy one of the potent cocktails (i can recommend "The passion" which is a smooth passionfruit margarita)
have fun in hoian!
Favorite Dish: Grilled fish in banan leaf, Wiener Schnitzel!
