The food is a good representation of vietnamese food in general. The pho could do with a little more complexity with some basil and more mint and the broth slightly richer. Service was good but that could be due to us being the only table. There are interesting twists on certain dishes and it is a good place to go... More

We went there to get a taste of fine Vietnamese cuisine for dinner. The service was really caring and efficient. The food was a mix of traditional and modern recipes and we liked it very much. Hoi Han is an good add-on to the Asian gastronomy in the UAE.

We were staying at the Shangri-La Qaryat Al Beri and as others have said this restaurant is a very convenient place to eat. But it's more than that - we were in Abu Dhabi celebrating my wife's birthday with a couple of friends and this was the chosen final night meal for our week long trip. It was a great... More

Very nice setting and excellent service. Food was delicious. However, I didn't have a starter - only a main, as I have quite a small appetite. Usually a main and starter is too much for me to finish. I had Wok fried scallops, which although wonderfully tasty, was such a tiny portion - and not cheap - I think it... More

Our first meal here 2 years ago was stunning. So going back this time with my daughter and a friend, we were expecting a lot. It was fine but definitely not stunning in the case of the sunset menu. No surprises in the food, and it could have come from any basic Vietnamese cafe. It seemed expensive for what was... More
