This place used to be special because of the lighting and atmosphere - regardless of being located in one of Aucklands lower socioeconomic areas, it USED to deliver on quality and ambience. 4 of us dined here last night: We ordered a starter of 4 mini spring rolls two stir fry dishes, two serves of rice, two red wines and...

This is like a jewel in the crown of Auckland eating. It's well worth the trip "South Side" to eat here, you won't find better, tastier or fresher food anywhere. Delicious! A quaint unusual place, you almost feel you are in a tent in the back yard!! My only gripe is that it was September and cccccccold!! Otherwise it would... More

We were stopping nearby and wanted a quick bite to eat. The restaurant is super quirky so I can't fault it for that. It was however a little cold as its set inside a tent. My stater of soup was amazing, best I've had but I wasn't overly keen on my main dish - this isn't to it was bad,... More

This is the second time we have been here. Last time was 5-6 months ago and then again a week ago. We were a party of 6 people. Yes the entrance is pretty, lots of lights and kind of cute sitting outside with a shell floor, in a tent type of environment but thats where it ended. We had 6... More

It's a really pretty place. It caters for couples and also larger groups. When you first walk in the entrance it is stunning. The place is so pretty and the food is great. We had chefs special appetisers, duck curry and seafood sonething. The only negative was the scallops - I suspect they were frozen. Still a 5 in my... More

Went here in March... group of us. Changi beer was great... as were the meals. I asked for mine "Thai medium" ... but there was virtually no heat in it at all. Sauce was pretty good but meal should have had more kick. Nice atmosphere inside ... certainly NOT anything like outside!!

This place is always spectacular. The food is always consistent. I've been here about 6x now, and it always feels like its my first time. The service is nice and the food is always good. The garden atmoshere is the best!

Had a large group of friends and we thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere at the Secret Thai Garden. It's hard to believe that when you walk through the gate you are literally transferred into a Thai setting and it's hard to believe you are in Otahuhu let alone Auckland. Starters were delightful, I had the chicken wings which were delectable, I... More
