This restaurant is tucked away down a side alley but worth the effort to track down. We were delighted with the variety of food on order. The stuffed squid was delicious and the mango salad was delightfully different. Hoi An restaurants we have visited have...More

Don't be dissuaded by the narrow alleys getting to this place. This aptly named place is actually a little garden tucked away in a narrow alley. We liked the Sour Prawns and Turneric Fish, and did not like the Ginger Chicken. Staff was very attentive...More

Dear Alex, Thanks so much for your kind words. We met by chance with Greg, my old pal, and a little chat didnot make me to think you would find us again. But you came back and so happy to know that you were pleased...More

Given the reviews of this restaurant we were expecting something which was not delivered. The wait staff were extremely annoying. The second after being handed a menu and before even opening it we were asked what drinks we wanted. This theme continued throughout the night...More

Dear Jason, Maybe hyperbolism is your favourite writing style in an attempt to exaggerate the fact, but, sorry Jason, what people really need is always the truth, not a leasing. By some clues, we found your table was A17 in May 21st, 2017. You came...More

It is worth seeking out this little gem of a restaurant. The atmosphere is great, the food good and service charming. Not too pricey either for the standard of food/service.

This place is a little bit tricky to find - if I recall correctly the sign on the main street next to the narrow alleway this is down was high up, a sign/sandwich board at street or eye level would make it easier. But I...More

Dear Mark, By CCTV, we found you came around 19h15, May 05th 2017, set down at the table A8, and taken care all the time by Ms.Duong (our former shift-leader). What you complained about the service apparently reflects the reason why that shift-leader resigned at...More

Nice little spot set amongst a green garden setting with little fountains ect. The food was good. A bit more on the expensive side, and I feel a large part of what you are paying for is the decor/linen napkins/green scenery ect. If you prioritise...More

The place has a very beautiful setting, as the name proposes, in and around a garden. Prices were relatively high for Vietnam but so was the quality. Payed around VND 150k for our mains. Overall a pretty good option
