Came here for a meal with my daughter and her friend. We were on a whistle-stop tour of Vietnam. The restaurant is vibrant and lively. The food is of an excellent standard and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
We visited Secret Garden following a lot of positive reviews. Unfortunately, we didn't have the same experience as a lot of previous visitors. The main reason for this was the staff, they weren't particularly friendly or engaging; wondering whether the Corona outbreak is getting to...them? Everything felt rushed and distanced. The food was OK-good but wasn't worth what they were charging for the small, tapas style portions. The setting is quite nice. There are much better restaurants in Saigon for better value and experience, so no reason to recommend this place to anyone.More
One of our very very favourite HCMC restaurants.
And we always get great service. (maybe if you're are a pushy arrogant tourist, the service is not so great, or at least not so friendly? or is that an impression i get?)
Try some...differnt (Vietnamese) dishes.
Book ahead and (if you are not a large party or just two) try to get a small table next to the edge for better views and more peaceful. We have memorized the best/favourite table number, but i can't tell you.
Be prepared for the walk up about four floors ... in typical Vietnamese fashion, it seems at the time as you go up, you must have the wrong address .. but the the journey is well worth it, and remember it is all downhill when you leave. :-)More
Enter from Pasteur street and find your way up 5 flights of stairs. A warm green roof top gardens opens up and offers the best of Vietnamese fusion cuisine. Good prices and a fantastic calm ambience in the busy city! Worth the hard-find!
Came with dinner with the wife. Several dishes missing off the menu or sold out. My beef was pretty good - but wife’s catfish was mushy and tasteless.
Service seemed rude and a racist - a black guy was refused a table with a view...on the balcony as he was just with his partner (as it was a table for 4) yet staff then gave it to two white girls instead 5 mins later. He was really upset and stormed out - don’t blame him really. Oh and the white girls didn’t even stay - they left after looking at the menu!More
For tourists. Menu doesn’t reflect what they have on their site- meaning if you’ve already psyched yourself up to ease into Vietnamese food, think again & pick something else. Deep fried catfish was mushy. Food comes out in no particular order. Got a proper show...with dinner too- a couple came in, consisting of a Vietnamese lady and her black partner, who asked to sit by the overhang at an unoccupied table made up for 5, and were refused- he wasn’t a happy man when they let someone else sit there as a couple! Can’t say I blame him. Try somewhere else.More
Hidden gem, amazing food at excellent price.
Place was fully reserved but they managed to fit us in.
Wine could have been more chilled was the only downside.
Thank you to TNK travels for the recommendation.
A Vietnamese friend suggested this restaurant, and although a little yard to find on the 4/F with no lift, down a smelly alley (hence the secreet), it is a damn good restaurant. Just lots of different stuff that isnt found on the usual Vietnamese restaurant...scene, but no weird stuff. Go there.More
