Had this restaurant suggested to us - hidden gem with absolutely delicious Vietnamese food. The 5 salad was so tasty , wontons flavoursome & rice rolls great. Peaceful garden surrounding, you'd easily forget you were in Hoi An.

The garden is gorgeous. Plants and water features, chilled music, and birdsong played over it. It's a relaxing setting to enjoy a delicious meal. Most of the food we ate was really tasty, and there were few complaints. Perhaps a few of the dishes (vegetable...More

Dear Yvonne H, Thank you so much for your nice review. Yes, we know the price of Secret Garden is a bit higher than local street food. From the beginning, we was planning to serve fine dining, that's why the cost must be higher. We...More

We found this lovely restaurant away from the hustle & bustle of Hoi An but still very central. Ideal for a romantic meal or a celebration. We booked ahead which was a good plan as by 7.30 there was a queue of people waiting for...More

I read your response to my review. I find it sarcastic and rude, and I am shocked to see that a business can speak to it's customers in this way. The response seems to imply that this is not the first time I have visited and reviewed the restaurant; "you again Chris". I assure you that I and my "little Vietnamese girlfriend' have never been to your restaurant before. (We live in the south of Vietnam.) We stumbled on your restaurant by accident. The prices I am comparing are those which I am used to paying, and the opinion about the taste of the prawns was that of my girlfriend. Although I will now definitely tell people not to come to your restaurant, I want to know why you think it is appropriate to send a rude and sarcastic response to a customer who gave a truthful and objective opinion about your establishment.
