We had an early dinner with our 18 month old son recently and it was a lovely atmosphere. The food was great and the staff very friendly (when our son wouldn't eat anything but bananas they rushed to aid)! Cocktails also great and reasonably priced!

Fresh Vietnamese food, serene ambience and friendly service. The menu reads well - difficult to decide as there were so many appealing choices. We enjoyed two courses last night and made another reservation to dine here again.

We stumbled on Secret Garden, and enjoyed our dinner so much that we returned for our final night in Hoi An. The food was delicious, service was great, and the setting is absolutely beautiful.

Had dinner at secret garden. Very friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Food was good but not perfect. Out of the 3 dishes we ordered, 2 were good and one (chicken satay) was pretty tasteless.

Dear Anderson and wife, Thanks so much for your kind review. So sorry that we did make you confused by giving the name "Satay chicken" for that dish. As i myself explained to you at your table that night, our principle is refusing to imitate the recipes of any other restaurant. Hence, our satay chicken is not something skewered and... More

We went there in a group, booking a self cooking session before eating. Besides the really cool and funny cook not worth it, at least not for Europeans, because we are thinking of domething completely different talking about "self-cooking". It was more like a cook show. But the food is delicious and location on the outside very nice and invites... More

Dear Sven1001, Thanks so much for your review. That helps us a lot to improve our cookery class. On the other hand, you came to us that day with your guide as all German guests of that travel agency usually do. We have to confess that we were a bit bothered by that bridge guy while both you and us... More

Followed a sign pointing down an alleyway off one of the streets in the old town. The restaurant in an oasis in the middle of all the hustle and bustle, cool and shaded with lots of tables and a nice bar area. Service is pretty immaculate and there is a good choice on the menu. We came here twice and... More

We have visited the secret garden several times now and have never had a bad experience. The last time was a week ago and once again we loved the place. The staff are attentive without being 'in your face' and the food was wonderful. My daughter had the crab and one of the staff spent time to dress it for... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant during a stroll around the old streets of Hoi An's ancient town. I wondered why friends had not recommended this place to us before but, I was soon to find out. Located down a local alley, the "secret" walk adds to mystery and intrigue of the venue. The setting is beautiful and unexpected; decorated with... More

Dear Ms.Aoife and partner, We supposed this review would come sooner, but surprisingly, it came a bit late. We were actually waiting for it hence we could give a pertinent response to you. First of all, we have to claim that two of you are the most horror customers we've ever had during eight years opening of Secret Garden. My... More
