Dao Tien River Restaurant

This popular restaurant is run by husband and wife team Mr Le Quoc Viet and Dao Thi Tien with support from two Australians who loved Viet’s cooking. Set in a charming 1930s French colonial house, Dao Tien's dining room has two, spacious terraces with amazing views of the river - indeed, it is one of the few restaurants in Hoi An with such generous riverside seating. Lanterns and a refreshing river breeze provide a wonderful ambience at night while live traditional music enhances the experience.

Dao Tien offers all the signature dishes of Hoi An as well as some interesting fusions. Try the sautéed beef with black pepper, the grilled marinated fish in banana leaf, or the grilled mackerel with wasabi sauce. Order à la carte or go for one of the set menus.

The restaurant also runs cooking classes, and specialises in functions with wedding packages a speciality.
