I dine at Hoi An regularly.
Its one of my favourite restaurants in Dubai.
Food is nice. Service is also nice too.
Very tasty and also nicely decorated.
Just a bit expensive and everything is in small portion.
For example,a bottle of local water,which is sold less than 2AED outside is sold 27 AED here.
It should not be more than 20 AED.
Although its expensive,we will come back here again.

I went to this restaurant last night with my fiance for dinner.
We both love the foods there and the environment.
The foods was beyond expectation and the service was very good.
Only the grass noodle was disappointed me.
I would suggest this restaurant for business lunch or family's dinner.

Dissapointed on several counts when dined here with my wife on the 27th of May. First, the the quiet and quaint ambience of the previous visit was missing. The place had a busy buzz to it and is now more lit up but the revamp has robbed the place of it's old world charm.
The customary fish cracker was delivered while we pondered as to what to order. Settled on the Vietnamese national soup divided in two and lobster ravioli for starters. Both the dishes were satisfying. Raspberry sorbet as palate cleansers before we were served the main dish of sizzling prawns with steamed rice, an unappetising fare and wok-fried lobster which was just alright.
The total bill including a Breezer, draught beer minus tip came to DHs. 425.
Having booked through roundmenu we were entitled to a 20% discount which was not honoured on a premise which was wrong. However, on registering my complaint, Hoi An has admitted its mistake, apologised and offered a 50% discount for the next visit. Still wondering if it's worth it. Perhaps, for old time's sake.

Dined here on the August 15th. Was the lone diner when I trooped in at 11PM.
The attending staff were very nice. Since the lighting was dim the menu card came with it's own light source. Prawn crackers were served with sweet and sour sauce as dip as also a drink made of apple and passionfruit as complementary. Magazines made available while munching on the crackers. Then came the lemon sorbet as a palate cleanser. Went for the traditional Vietnamese soup consisting of beef flat noodles and vegetables. For the main course had the seabass wrapped in leaf with steamed rice served separately in a bowl and a bottle of Amstel to go with it.
After a 20% discount for the Gulf News voucher the final bill came to Dhs.165. An pleasant experience best enjoyed as a couple.

Good - but not what I was looking for. This restaurant came highly recommended to us, but I was disappointed in the high end decor/ambience. The food was delicious and the service was very good as well. However, I could have been anywhere - in any hotel. I didn't feel any ambience as the restaurant could have been a French or Italian. Didn't feel authentic. I'm longing for an authentic, joint where I can get a great bowl of pho without paying a fortune.
