Description: We are proud to introduce the brand new venue Aubergine49 to Hoi An. Local son and chef Nguyen Nhu Thinh has spent 10 years abroad training with leading chefs such as Paul Gayler, Rick Stein and Seiji Yamamoto of Tokyo's Nihonryori Ryugin (a three Michelin starred restaurant). He has now returned home to create a fresh new venue with global flavours. Classically trained, the style of Chef Thinh's dishes combines classic French techniques with global flavours to create a modern contemporary menu of Eurasian cuisine firmly rooted in an Asian background.

Whilst in Hoi An, we made a reservation at Aubergine49 being recommended it by a friend.

WOW!

We arrived in our Grab and was met by a friendly member of staff who stopped traffic so we could cross the road. We were then seated and shown the menu.
We chose the 9 course taster menu with the paired wines to drink.

This was more than just a meal, it was an experience, and an amazing one at that.

Every course was unbelievable and the attention to detail impeccable. I cannot give it enough praise.

All of the staff were friendly, polite and helpful and a credit to the restaurant.

If you come to Hoi An and want something special, make a reservation here and be prepared to be wowed.

It really was an evening the wife and I will never forget.

Outstanding restaurant. Choice of 3,7,9 course prix fixed menu. We had 3 courses which was more than enough food for us.

Presentation stunning and exceptional service.

First course we had scallops which was incredible as well as artichoke which was delicious.

2nd course, we had short ribs and fish. Both presented beautifully and extremely tasty.

Dessert, we had chocolate molten cake and I substituted sorbet. Both nice.

We recently visited this restaurant for our Christmas dinner and were very impressed. The staff were incredibly welcoming and charming from the moment we arrived. The service was excellent, with all the waiters and waitresses being attentive and thoughtful. The food was simply excellent. We have never had a better combination of food and wine. We highly recommend this place if you want a delicious dinner and a wonderful time with great company. Be sure to check it out when you're in town!

Overall disappointing experience :
-it took 4 hours to have the 7 course set menu.
-beside an effort made on food presentation, the taste itself has nothing special

I won’t recommend this place

Dear Romeoj198,

Thank you for choosing to dine with us. We appreciate your feedback.

We are sorry you didn't have an enjoyable evening with us, and we would like to clarify what happened.

First of all, we apologise for the wait on the night you dined with us. The restaurant was extremely busy, and we tried our best to accommodate all guests. We are disappointed to hear that you didn't enjoy our 7-course meal. Typically, the 7-course meal takes between two and a half to three hours, including the wine pairing. The duration depends on how fast our guests prefer to enjoy their meal. On a very busy night, we politely ask our guests to be kind and patient as we try our best to keep everyone happy. We believe that the 4-hour duration you mentioned is an overestimate of the time it took for your meal. Our staff checked on your table multiple times, and it appeared that you were happy and enjoying your evening.

Once again, please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We want to assure you that your feedback will help us improve our service, and we'd love to have you back in the near future to provide a favourable dining experience.

Kind regards,
Aubergine49 team.
