Amazing restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City, very nice decor and atmosphere, very delicious Vietnamese cuisine. Clean and cozy restaurant. The service was excellent, staff was friendly and welcoming. If you love Vietnamese cuisine, it is a place to try.

This is a traditional Vietnamese restaurant that local brought us to. This place is highly recommended. Right at rooftop of a building, place is a bit cramp. Really enjoy the ambience and food. Do book before you go. I sees non stop queue for tables.

A bit difficult to find - the restaurant just few meters next to it looks far more like a "garden". Your appetite grows as you need to reach the 4th floor by the stairs. Decent quality of food although we found a small plastic stitch...in one of the dishes. Helpful staff.More

Great choices, impressive presentation. It is a quaint restaurant that serves delicious Vietnamese dishes at reasonable prices. Menu offers a wide variety to choose from. It arrived quickly after ordering too. The food is very tasty and represents really well.

i think u go secret garden for the ambience rather than food.. i rated 3 coz its rather pricey for the food which i do not think justify this price when you can eat restaurants at saigin centre such as 4Ps at a lower amount....even cafe propaganda do not charge as high. btw u need to climb up 6-7 flights of stairs to reach the roof top and its located within living apartments.More

This restaurant came recommended but although the atmosphere is very cute, we weren't overly impressed with the food. The food was tasty but the portions are small & contain many bones instead of meat. The cocktails were expensive and not great. There are definitely better...places out there!More

What a great find! You quite literally feel like your walking into an apartment stairwell - but just keep on going to the top and you find yourself at a beautiful rooftop restaurant. It has the feel of a rustic eatery but it’s uniquely Vietnamese....The food was lovely and not expensive, and such a friend staff team too - always willing to help! Definitely a place I’d recommend and come back too.More
