We found the Secret Garden by accident. We went down some back streets that are only used by locals and stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant. It had started to rain, so we went inside to shelter. Our first impression was the informal layout and decor, followed by the ambiance created by the background music. The staff were friendly and the menu had an excellent selection of dishes. We had a lovely meal which we washed down with a cool beer and fruit juice.

We enjoyed the place so much that we returned two days later and also recommended it to a couple we had met earlier at Halong bay.

Hopefully we will return again on a future trip.

Recently visited for a friends birthday - had a set menu and absolutely every course was amazing.

The setting is beautiful and picturesque and staff were incredibly attentive and excellent service.
Really recommend... a little green oasis in the centre of Old town.

Lovely looking restaurant hidden away off the main drag, was full to bursting when we ate there and there was a great, buzzy atmosphere. Probably the most beautiful restaurant in the area with all of the water and foliage.

Welcoming to kids - the homemade chicken nugget my 2 year old had was delicious. The food we had was flavoursome and authentic, possibly not the very best in Hoi An but still very good though the spring rolls were a but greasy. Service was friendly but slow.

Second visit to this hidden gem on our trip this week, the environment is lovely, the staff attentive and a great choice of food - what more could you want.

When the outside heat is causing you to wilt, sitting alfresco is not something you would normally vote for, but they have set the restaurant up so you enjoy constant cooling fan breezes (without fear of your food being blown away).

We have been there on the night with live music and a night without, both were enjoyable.

Would go back for a third visit quite happily.
