American Vietnamese chef Tran Duc first made a name for himself in Hoi An more than a decade ago serving contemporary Asian cuisine at Mango Rooms. The formula worked so well that a few years later he opened Mango Mango. The cuisine is similar in style, the menu and setting quite different. In 2016, Duc expanded Mango Mango - and this is also a great place to grab a cocktail in Hoi An.

Review

When the popularity of Tran Duc’s Mango Rooms became too much, he found a space a few hundred metres away across the Thu Bon River and opened Mango Mango. The two restaurants are siblings in every way - drawing on similar inspiration, similar flavour experimentation and with a similar friendly, funky feel.





But they’re quite different too. Mango Mango is a brighter, more airy space with a different perspective on Hoi An - and there’s plenty that sets the menus apart too.

Like Mango Rooms, Mango Mango is fancy - in a cool and relaxed kind of way. A good fit for Hoi An.

Pop by in the late afternoon for a cocktail or a glass of wine - and stay around for dinner.

Most starters are around $5USD and most mains range either side of $20USD.

And if Duc looks familiar, it might be because he's cooked with celebrity chefs Gordon Ramsay and Luke Nguyen.
