My family and i literally stumbled upon this restaurant when we got dropped off by a taxi and started walking down one of the smaller alleyways. I spotted one of the signs for the Secret Garden and decided to follow it. We entered the Secret Garden and it was almost like crossing into Narnia. You enter an inner courtyard with... More

This restaurant is a hidden gem that transports you to a serene and beautiful oasis. The customer service and the food is exceptional. I was not familiar with Vietnamese food but after dinner here, I have added Vietnamese cuisine to one of my three favourite cuisines. The flavours and freshness of the foods are amazing.

Strangely we did not have the similar experience that other reviewers had and we found all staff, especially the maître d to be very friendly and the service was great. Loved the atmosphere even on a chilly night and the ambience with the piano and guitar playing was great. We enjoyed our meals and found all to our satisfaction. I... More

Really nice location. Very good service and excellent food. And the prices are not at all high. Especially if you see how the restaurant looks like. Best restaurant we've been to in Hoian.

Congratulations to the staff who have obviously taken on board previous comments regarding service. They were friendly and worked very hard to please our table of 5. No complaints and well done to them. Food very good - tasty and fresh if a little 'westernised'. We had quite a range of entrees and mains and all was of a consistent... More

Great ambience and good service but if you like great Vietnamese food, don't bother as there are plenty other options with better food

The secret garden is an excellent restaurant and we came back a second time. The service take a little bit longer but food is very fresh and awesome ginger tea.

Food was very good, setting is stunning - staff were the most miserable I have come across anywhere. What appeared to be the restaurant manager merely grunted at us. A smile would have cracked her face clearly. The ambience was completely lost as the rest of the staff followed suit. Put me off completely - such a shame.

Dear Alilcfc, I, the restaurant's owner, do apologize for your bad feeling with my staffs. I do agree with you that my manager sometimes raises her voice a bit aggressively. Actually, it's all about the reviews on TripAdvisor. Everyone in the restaurant including herself will have better or worse business that's completely due to the positivity or negativity of every...

Let me start by saying that I wanted to give this a 5 star rating but just couldn't do it. The setting of this restaurant is just beautiful - we had to walk up an alley which was hard to find, but this adds to the feeling of seclusion this restaurant has. The manger was great but she was dealing... More

Dear Danmo23, I'm Uy TRAN, the owner of Secret Garden. I personally do apologize to both of you for your dinner last Thursday's night. After a busy Greetings season, some of my staffs were temporarily absent for their quick holiday that caused the disruption of our kitchen. Now everyone are back to work thus our productivity will definitely be much... More
