The seasonal menu offers a wonderful celebration of impeccably prepared Vietnamese cuisine, with a great selection of street food favourites, healthy salads, light noodle dishes, vegetarian and vegetable side dishes, home-style classics, celebration dishes and exotic deserts. Check it out here.
With its charming decor and spacious setting, House of Hoi An is a great place for friends to catch up, families to celebrate a special occasion and workmates to enjoy Friday night drinks.
