Hoa Hien Restaurant

  • Address: 35 Tran Quang Khai, Cam Chau, City. Hoi An, Quang Nam Province
  • Opening hours: 9am – 21h30

If someone asks me which Hoi An restaurant is the most delicious and worth visiting, I will definitely recommend Hoa Hien restaurant first. Located far from the center of Hoi An ancient town, Hoa Hien restaurant owns a convenient location with a beautiful view of Thu Bon river and a diverse and attractive menu including all famous Hoi An dishes plus delicious dishes. Other famous dishes of other regions such as salads, curries, soups, dumplings, spring rolls, grilled meats, pancakes, etc.

According to many reviews, most visitors to Hoa Hien order the restaurant’s famous Am Phu rice. The rice dish here is especially beautiful, full and full of colors including basil, fried egg, spring rolls, grilled meat, salad and other vegetables.


In addition, you should also try the restaurant’s famous stir-fried Cao Lau with grilled meat and white rose. These two dishes also taste excellent, not inferior to other famous restaurants!

The second plus point is that Hoa Hien restaurant has a very beautiful decoration space, bold in Hoi An and extremely cool. Entering the restaurant, you will surely be impressed by the traditional beauty of Hoa Hien and the enthusiasm and dedication of the service staff. When night falls, the restaurant scene is even more sparkling when thousands of lights are lit, full of romantic and extremely poetic colors.


However, the minus point of this Hoa Hien restaurant is that it is often crowded on weekends, so you should book a table in advance if you intend to come here to enjoy Hoi An cuisine on the weekend!

Song Thu Hoi An Restaurant

  • Address: 55 Tran Quang Khai, Cam Chau, city. Hoi An, Quang Nam Province

Besides Hoa Hien, Song Thu is also one of the restaurants in Hoi An that many tourists as well as locals often visit to enjoy. Located next to the famous poetic Thu Bon river, Song Thu Hoi An restaurant owns a cool space mixed with romance. This is an extremely ideal destination for those who are looking for a peaceful place to enjoy delicious Hoi An food with family and lovers.


Song Thu restaurant is originally processed by Quang people, so the dishes here are extremely standard. Although the restaurant also adjusts the taste a bit to suit diners from three regions, it still does not lose the rich flavor of the Central region.

In addition, Song Thu’s menu is especially rich from snacks to main dishes, which are beautifully decorated and delicious. For example, grilled eel in Song Thu, grilled meat wrapped in rice paper, Hoi An beo cake to fresh seafood dishes such as giant crayfish, clams and crabs filled with greasy bricks.

The restaurant’s space is designed in a classic style thanks to the characteristic warm yellow tones. The interior is also dotted with many beautiful watercolor paintings and colorful cages. For those who love “virtual living”, this place is also an ideal choice because around the restaurant there are many beautiful backgrounds “no dead corners”. Make sure you just pick up the camera and snap a bunch of great photos!
