Dubai's only Vietnamese restaurant is a hit on Sheikh Zayed Road
Time Out Dubai staff
Hoi An is an elegant restaurant with a stately vibe. Diners can relax comfortable chairs placed in an intimate setting. The low lighting and slowly moving ceiling fans add to the effect, with waitresses dressed in traditional Vietnamese clothing. The food lends to the atmosphere by being authentic, especially the classic pho. Other dishes from their menu are also prepared with the same degree of originality and fresh ingredients. Each item also has a very distinctive flavour that leaves you wanting more. However the waitresses, while friendly, aren’t very efficient. The menu is a bit overwhelming to choose from with a wide variety of choices, and has two popular set menus: Hue and Saigon. Perfect for a quiet dinner, the impeccable taste of Hoi An’s food is enough to overlook any other quibbles visitors may face.
