“Secret Garden Tripadvisor Review”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

There is no doubting the reviews about the Secret Garden. It is a wonderful setting, great food, and good service. The name is more then just a catchy title, it really is a secret (on how to get there). But if you seek out this tucked away gem, you will be happy with your effort.

We ordered several dishes and were more then happy with all of them.

The only thing that kept us from giving them an excellent review was the fact that we were booted at 10pm. This is not the place for late night dinning. The place was empty by 9:45 and at 10 they approached us (while we still had half a glass of wine left) and asked us to leave, they were closing up.

A little disappointing, but the rest of the experience was perfect.

“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Do yourself a favour and hunt this little restaurant down if you're in Hoi An! The food and the service is exceptional, and they also run a cooking class, which is absolutely awesome. It's tricky to find, but once you do, you'll be going back for more...

“Best restraunt experience in Vietnam”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

It is not possible to say enough good things about this place. Great food, wonderful atmosphere, live music and friendly staff. They also have a cooking class that you can take. We are disappointed we ran out of time, and were unable to try it out. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone, especially for a couples night out. We can't wait for our next visit to Hoi An. This will be our first stop!
