“Secret Garden”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We book a table thru the internet by email. The settings is beautiful and the place quite and cosy. The only problem is the small portion of food esp the desert i.e a miserable small piece of cake. Quite disappointing otherwise a nice place to dine and chat.

“Garden refuge”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

The location and setting is unique, we enjoyed the alley way access and discovering a green cool oasis. The landscaping of the garden is lovely and significantly enhances the ambience of the restaurant. Quite an extensive menu.The cold cloth and welcome drink was greatly appreciated on our arrival in the middle of the day. A mango wrap and shrimp pancakes were thoroughly enjoyed a great light lunch and then.... we couldn't resist the coconut mango sorbet style dessert, delicious and generous servings. Total price $15AUD. Only slight negative was the musicians were testing their sound system and the "hello hello" over the microphones wore thin, however we would not hesitate to return.

Great food and lovely ambience at a very good price. Far better than the currently ranked no. 1 resturant where we ate last night.....
Very complex spicy flavours. One of our favourite restaraunts in HoiAn.

“Very extensive menu and great setting”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Secret Garden is located down a quiet lane. it is quiet stylish and has an extensive Vietnamese and Western menu. The staff are very friendly and the service is very efficient. The atmosphere is enhanced by an acoustic guitarist. The food was plentiful and delicious, The meal we enjoyed was presented impressively and used fresh produce. My only concern was that, I am particular about the beer being cold and it was chilled but not cold enough for my tastes. However the quality of the restaurant is very high.
