Restaurant Review: Hoi An, Shangri-La Hotel Dubai

When it comes to South Asian cuisine, Vietnamese is still largely underrepresented in favour of more readily available options, such as Indian or Thai. However, once you’re exposed to its vibrant flavours, you’ll travel the lengths of the city to taste more. And once you find Hoi An, you just know you’ll be back. The menu is extensive, covering all the bases from meat to seafood and appetising vegetarian selections. For a taste of true Vietnam in all its fresh and fragrant glory, you’ll be hard-pressed to better Hoi An’s offerings.
