Loved the ambiance and the band was great. The food...? Out of this world. Great portions too.Would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to try out a cafe that is in a cool relaxing place. You definately get value for your money.

Well received by a welcoming service team,we enjoyed both the food selection and the speed of service (but may have had something to do with the fact that it was half empty that time of the week). We found the food fresh and good value and the wine list pretty decent. All told a good meeting place for a business... More

In addition to the salad, the menu is impressively innovative catering for those of us with eclectic taste. Servings are generous, staff are very efficient and the ambience is as good as can be within that concrete jungle. Five stars in my book!

If you want to chill out in a "hidden" location, his is the place. Nice and cosy away from the bustle of the city. Nicely located with a garden. Good food and excellent service.

The service is mostly really slow and for breakfast they didn't have the display ready on a sunday morning. The food for dinner was okay though and the prices are reasonable too. So if you... More

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

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.
