Went for a dinner with group of nearly 40. Vietnamese style food was tasty and attractively presented. Service was wonderful for a group of that size. Our waitress, Dung, was friendly and good. Staff all seemed to speak English well.

The food is fine, we had a nice lunch there. The staff are lovely. However, the cocktails are great, and we ended every evening in Hoi An there. Great views, and pleasant atmosphere

Food is terrible, like they just warm it up when you order something from the fridge. Staff is not friendly, I don't want to use the word RUDE. Nice decor but don't let it fool you. Stay away!!!

Despite a lovely waitress my food choice of fried wontons with sweet and sour sauce was very disappointing as it lacked flavour. I didn't even finish it.
