Proof is in the pudding

Ate here for dinner. The special they had was really good. The food was perfectly flavoured. Maybe the pudding I chose was a dud, but haven't had such drive malva pudding in my life. Prefer south african malva pudding anytime.

Located in Dusit offices on Riverside Drive, Secret Garden offers simple and healthy food. It is a small restuarant that offers great service.

Soups and smoothies are ok but sandwiches are below average as neither the bread nor anything inside them was fresh. Thanks god wi-fi works so I can make this post.

Located at 14 Riverside Drive and in a very quiet area, the restaurant offers a great place for a business meeting over lunch and it serves a great food as well ranging from salads, steaks etc. The service is fast and good.

It's a shameful experience really! Having read so much about this so called 'hidden away treasure' a friend and I decided to visit on a Saturday for a 'catch-up' lunch. Though I was hoping to find my privacy I had assumed a Saturday lunch would have been busy. How wrong was I when we turned up and found the eatery... More

This is a lovely restaurant with a live band on Fridays. The salad platter is so great. Choices are wide. I also enjoyed the desserts (strawberry cheese cake was so sumptious) and of course some wine/ I recommend this place for unwinding after a full days work.

We enjoyed an afternoon sipping tea and devouring some of the deserts. The menu offers a good variety of dishes that include breakfast. The restaurant is open for dinner and lunch everyday, although on Sunday it closes after lunch. Though faced with buildings whilst seated on the patio, there is a small garden in a peaceful setting. The salad bar... More

I can't say some of the previous reviews had not been clear enough in depicting the Secret Garden restaurant as a less than average place for a dinner, but the combination of some positive reviews (we're all different in our tastes) and the attraction of a musical trio we'd heard about drew me and my family there anyway. Our lasting... More

Until now, this restaurant had a monopoly on business in this office/shopping complex, but they are about to face stiff competition from a new hotel with many upscale outlets. Unless they improve their game dramatically, they will go out of business. The food is delicious, but the wait staff are beyond incompetent. They don't know their own menu. They forget... More
