“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely evening at the secret garden we were lucky to come upon it in the day whilst walking round, it had been recommended to us so booked a table for the evening, lucky we did as we saw several people turned away the food was very good service was slow but everything is cooked to order and the guitar playing was fantastic creating a great ambience.

“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place really is worth finding in fact that is part of the fun. You have to go down a small alleyway from the Main Street, as you are walking down you do start to wonder if you are doing the right thing then lo and behold there you are in a Secret Garden. The setting is stunning and really beautiful - take a camera as you'll want to get pictures. The service, food and value for money are all excellent. We enjoyed it here so much we returned the next day as well. In terms of food we had the crispy spring rolls and crepes for starters, for main we had Beef La Lot (would recommend this dish in particular as especially good), chicken with ginger made more spicy for me and spicy ribs. Each dish was v good and I would recommend this restaurant as standing out amongst a raft of eateries in Hoi An.

“Special Secret!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

What a gorgeous place! The food is absolutely delicious, the staff so courteous and friendly and the ambience perfect for a friends gathering or a romantic dinner for two.
The cost is so reasonable and they even give you a small gift and momento for going! Wish we were in Hoi An longer- we would certainly return!
