In addition to offering fabulous lodging and a private beach, Mai House also boasts one of the better restaurants on this stretch of the island. Along with the included breakfasts, we’ve had a few dinners here while overlooking the amazing sunsets.
Mai House is run by a French expatriate, but the menu is distinctly Vietnamese. Our favorite dish (which we had 3 times) was the pomelo salad. Sweet, tart, and spicy with fresh pomelo, lime juice, shrimp and a generous topping of sesame seeds. We also liked the fish in lot leaves, a variation of the classic beef in lot leaves that incorporated blackened fresh fish into a Vietnamese dolma.
Overall, we enjoyed every dish that we ordered at Mai House, including a few memorable dishes. Good food and a stunning view, it’s hard to ask for more!
