  • Cham Pa (also known as Champa): Horrible Night Out

    by vietworld Written Apr 6, 2010

    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.

    Moon Restaurant: GREAT PHO ..FRIENDLY SERVICE

    by Greggor58 Written Feb 27, 2010

    Moon Restaurant,Hoi An, Vietnam.
    2 more images

    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.

    Mr. Rin: Best Street Food in town

    by DSwede Updated May 4, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cau Lau at Mr. Rin

    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.

  • The River Lounge Restaurant: A new place in Hoian you should visit

    by oanvoanc Updated Dec 29, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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!

    Mermaid Restaurant: Good Seafood

    by King_Golo Updated Sep 28, 2008

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hoi An is famous for its fresh seafood, especially the so-called "White Rose", i.e. steamed shrimps wrapped in rice paper. One of the best places to enjoy it is the Mermaid Restaurant. Situated in Hoi An's center, it is very popular among tourists, but prices are ok.

    Favorite Dish: Mermaid's offers very good shrimps and squidfish

    Blue Dragon: The perfect spot to watch people while eating

    Blue Dragon Restaurant

    Blue Dragon is a great place to go to when you're still looking for a nice restaurant for dinner. Among the many restaurants located at the riverside, Blue Dragon offered the best food when we went there. I enjoyed Beef with Lemongrass which was really awesome. Furthermore, the location is perfect to watch people passing by. The promenade next to the river is a popular spot for a stroll at night - and it's really cool to just sit there with your fruit shake and dinner and watch all that.

    Favorite Dish: beef dishes were great

    Banana Split Cafe: Good location, good food

    Banana Split Cafe

    We tried this place for breakfast, and their omelette is really delicious! Located just at the end of Cam Nam Bridge, Banana Split Cafe makes up a good point to start your day in Hoi An. Sip a fruit shake there, tug in eating omelette or pancakes and then walk over the street to dive in into the hustle and bustle of Hoi An's market.
    In case you're looking for a way to get away from Hoi An: Banana Split Cafe offers several travel services such as getting bus tickets, booking tours to the surrounding area etc. as well. It's also an internet cafe (don't use it, though, as the computers are slow and broken) and a laundry service...

    Favorite Dish: omelette and fruit shakes

    Cafe Can: A beautiful setting along the riverside

    by betska Written Aug 30, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were attracted by the pleasant setting here. Views of the river, candle-lit tables and it was busy.
    We tried the special set menu. This included an assortment of local Hoi An specialties:
    Fried wontons, White Rose (steamed dumplings stuffed with shrimp), fish cooked in banana leaves and a very good squid dish cooked with lime, lemon and peanuts. Finished off with creme caramel for desert. We enjoyed this meal very much. US$5 each.

    Favorite Dish: I'd kill to go back for more of that squid!

    King Restaurant: Good local food

    by betska Updated Aug 30, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A very unassuming little cafe.
    We had breakfast here when we first arrived while waiting to check in to our hotel next door. The banana pancakes were good.
    We enjoyed it so much, we came back again for lunch.

    Favorite Dish: The Hoi An speciality "Cao Lau". Flat noodles mixed with bean sprouts, greens, slices of pork and topped with croutons served in a large bowl full of broth. Delicious. A must to try while in Hoi An.

    Quan Hung stall: Cao Lao

    Upon my arrival at Hoi An, I bumped into a girl whom I met earlier on my trip and she was recommending a stall which sells Cao Lau at only 12,000 dong a bowl. Cao Lau is a local specialty food which not available at any other parts of Vietnam and the world. Quan Hung serves the best Cao Lau I’ve had in Hoi An and they are situated along Bach Dang street and their price is really cheap. Beside this stall there are also other choices which you can choose and thus I had dinner here 2 nights in a row.

    Mango Room: Best restaurant in Vietnam

    by bluebug Written May 4, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After traveling for quite sometime my boyfriend and I finally decided to treat ourselves to a nicer restaurant. We weren't going to but then we heard people raving left and right about this place. We showed up on our last night here in Hoi An and the pwer was out. No problem. The place was nicely lit with candles and the staff promptly brought us frozen napkins to keep ourselves cool. We were just taking the first few sips of our drinks when the power came back on. The restaurant is small and charming.
    The menu is a Vietnamese/Cuban fusion. There's lots of spicy Cuban flavors intertwined with fragrant Vietnam tastes.
    I had the the prawns wrapped with beef and sauteed in a rum and lemongrass butter. Divine!
    Matt had the grilled cube steak with mango salsa and rice noodle.
    I can't describe exactly how intensly satisfying our food was. We're both chefs from San Francisco and this is one of the best restaurants we've ever been to.
    The menu is top notch and should not be missed!

    Mr. Hungs: Best Cau Lau in the city!

    by bluebug Written May 4, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a great little street stall right past the market and along the river. There are a few tables set up and an outdoor kitchen. Cau lau is the the specialty dish in this town. It's noodles topped with meat or tofu and herbs. At the time of writing it was only 12,000 dong which is only around $.075. There's a little menu given to you when you sit which makes it easier for some people who may be intimated by the street stalls.
    Also Mr. Hung is a funny character. Make sure to stoop by and have a bite.

    Favorite Dish: Cau lau = noodles with meat or tofu
    white rose = steamed shrimp wontons.
    fried wontons = fried wontons stuffed with prk and topped with steamed veggies.
