We just stopped in for a drink on a hot sweaty Hoi An day - The decor and garden is magical. The mango lassi was made from Real mango- delicious! Lovely garden oasis in the middle of town.

Two dishes I would highly recommend here are the prawn with a sweet coconut cream sauce and the cucumber prawn salad rolls. Sorry I didn't take note of the exact names but the menu is not overly expansive and they should be easy to find. The service was good, the washrooms more than adequate and lots of greenery and fans... More

This place has a lovely setting with a pond and water features. Great lighting, very romantic or just good for a group of friends. It is on the expensive scale for SE Asia, but worth it. The food and wine was absolutely wonderful. We had main course and dessert. We both had orange beef because it sounded so amazing and... More

I have been to Secret Garden 4 times now. The ambiance of the surroundings is just beautiful. Lush and green and cool on these very hot Hoi An days. Being off the main streets down an alley, it is very quiet and secluded. Always welcomed with friendly staff, there are many places you can choose to sit. Cold hand towels... More

Tucked away up an alley this place is easy to miss. However it is worth the search. There is a small sign on the main road but this is easy to miss. The service was very good along with the food. Vietnamese cuisine at a high standard and very tasty! Highly recommended!

So glad we found the secret garden restaurant. The live background music - guitar on the evening we visited, added to the relaxed atmosphere. We thought the beef and betel leaved were a taste sensation, teamed with the papaya salad. Red wind was chilled when ordered by the glass which we weren't expecting. Service was friendly. Overall a good dining... More

We'd heard really good things but unfortunately they didn't live up to our expectations at all. The servers were mostly nice, though we felt that one of the laddies not in uniform stared at us whilst we ate which was strange. The food again was average, in particular the beef curry which didn't have a great amount of flavour and... More

Dear Insfred, We are so glad to have your kind review. The strange waitress who was mentioned is entirely fresh thus she still wait for her uniform (an AO DAI needs at least three days to be finished). We are so sorry about her performance as she still needs more training. In order to clarify your trouble with our food,... More

We loved Secret Garden so much the last time I visited Hoi An, I just had to go back! Its down a laneway off Le Loi St, and when we got there it was quite full, but fortunately we could fit in. Nice size table for 2. Price-wise its at the middle to high end for VN, but its worth... More
