Literally 50 metres from the upmarket Anantara Hotel, the White Lotus offers a clean and comfortable dining experience. Extensive local menu, plus many western dishes for those wanting a taste of home and a kids menu - sometimes you need this! Local dishes such as the wonton sharing plate with an interesting twist were a visual delight, with the sauce... More

This restaurant is well priced and the food is good. Well worth spending your money here as profits go towards helping the disadvantaged.

Try the garlic bread (omg) or the spinach and garlic for a healthy alternative. My boyfriend and I were staying just across the way at Orchids and had takeaway for three different meals! It was so convenient, tasty, and delicious. The service was great, the staff was attentive and the meals were served super hot which is always a huge... More

We had a wonderful evening, with amazing vietnamese food in a wonderul, not too busy street. The staff was really friendly and helpful, and the price is really ok. Just a short walk and you end in the beautiful Hoi An old town. We we go there anytime again.

We were the only table they are serving but the staff is quite slow and she forgot things. The seafood platter is good looking but seems some are just warm. The white rose and salad are nice though. Compared to other restaurant it is a bit over complemented.

I regret that your meal at White Lotus was less than satisfying. The waitress who forgot your sauce is a trainee who has been with us for less than 3 weeks. Due to unforseen circumstances, she was left alone on the quiet afternoon shift for a couple of hours and during the time you were there she also had to... More

We ate here after seeing the restaurant absolutely chockers on a Friday night. We went the next night and were the only two dining. The owner Geoff Shaw came over to talk to us and was very enlightening about how he started his charity work. Food was good, we had Basa fillet on banana leaf and Chicken with lemongrass aqd...

Lets be honest. Food is not really amazing. But this is for a good cause,helping children and the waitresses are very kind. Plus it is not expensive. Not a meal to remember but a good way to eat and make a good action.
