    This restaurant isn't open Mondays despite being able to make a booking and having confirmed booking. Arrived to our booking to find them closed - despite an open door sign and a 7 days a week operating sign. So unfortunately my rating is low as the experience is still pending.

    According to the staff, this establishment is new and in the soft opening stage, which meant, last night, the full menu was not yet available. We had our choice of 3 fixed menus. The menu we chose, the shorts one, was good, but scant. Be sure to leave enough time to dine while they are in this phase.

    Raymond our waiter was wonderful. The food was exceptional, a marvellous combination of French and Vietnamese flavours. The décor was relaxing and had a special feel to it. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    A nice restaurant for an occasion. Drink and food selection is vast. It was nice to see French+Viet cuisine. Food was good but it is on the pricier side - which is fine because they provide nice ambience and service. The decor initially caught me and that led me to try Not sure if we came on a bad day but the wait between dishes was quite noticeable. I wish they would’ve communicated it to us about any delays Overall, I’m glad I tried it and would recommend to a friend to try.

    Delicious and inventive food. Portions rather small especially entree. The restaurant is Asian inspired by French, so service is in the style of old fashioned French restaurants (is slow). It would have been ok if they had managed our expectations.

    Really nice and interesting food. Well presented. Service was friendly but amateurish. Dishes came out too quickly and in wrong order despite discussing with waiters that we wanted to take it slow and have fish before meat. Strangely sat our table of 2 side by side. Quite a few things on menu not available. Perhaps when it’s been open longer they’ll polish these things. I hope so because food is great.

    I guess it should have been obvious....an empty restaurant.. Our first encounter was excellent, being greeted perfectly at the door. Wine service poor, two deliveries spilled on the table and one glass definitely under poured. The food was excellent but the servings half portions, given the excessive pricing. Better homework next time.....

    This is a very charming restaurant. The food is lovingly prepared, showing the French influence. The staff are very attentive. A very fine aromatic barramundi steamed in banana leaves. Beautifully cooked duck. Show-stopping Vietnamese tiramisu. The ambience is light filled and elegant.

    Great dining experience in a very relaxed welcoming environment. Staff had attention to detail and attentive to service. Food came out quickly and was very nice to the palate in the right proportion. Drinks were refreshing. We appreciated the owner and head chef coming out to greet us and giving the time to ensure we enjoyed our experience. Highly recommended. Good luck with this new venture. People of Melbourne (and visitors), lets support our Melbourne hospitality industry

    I’m a Vietnamese so I had a high expectations for foods and services before I came here. Overall is good but not great because the restaurant has been setup for 2 weeks so some dishes I thought could have been the highlight of the night but were not available 😞 Luckily the Hoi An Beef Tartare truly stole my heart, and I loved Duck Liver Parfait to every piece. Waguy Bo La Lot and Hoi An Nem Nuong Pork Skewers were nice but veggie could have been rolled up into bite size rolls rather than “only for garnish” because they are indeed complimentary to these dishes. Kingfish crudo and Hoian Lamb Medley are nice too. The ambiance made me feel nostalgic and homesick as if I was in District 1 in HCM city so I truly enjoyed my dinner. Thank you team Hoiana.

    Gorgeous decor and a really great vibe. Service ver attentive, if not a little too much (standard for a new restaurant). The food was good but very expensive for what it was. Barramundi was delicious. Would like to see a few more vegetable/salad side dish options

    Amazing Food and the ambiance/Decor is stunning! My partner and I decided to go on their opening night and we were not disappointed! The staff were also very attentive throughout the night also making us feel very warm/welcoming. As locals we couldn’t recommend Hoiana enough!
