Another great recommendation from a friend of mine. The food and drinks were one thing, but it was complemented by the piano and guitar being played live in the background. Again, amazing food!

We stumbled upon the restaurant in one of the lanes while exploring, and glad we did. We had a lunch here with the house white wine. The food was delicious, the wine refreshing and the setting superb. It was nice to be away from the...More

This is a lovely place for meal drinks or coffee. There is a beautiful garden in the middle of the restaurant where seating is available. Very good service and lovely staff.

We rarely go to the same place more than once but this restaurant is really worth coming back twice during a four day vacation! Everything here was impeccable and we were so impressed with the decor, the hidden restaurant feel, the food, and the service!

So glad we were told about this place as we would have never thought to wander down the little laneway (quite a way) to find this little gem. The name is very appropriate as it really is a little secret garden hidden away...... We were...More

Maybe not the most easy place to find, but when you're there, you forget you are in Hoi An. The food is great, the service is pleasant and the prices ok. It's worth the search.

I read your response to my review. I find it sarcastic and rude, and I am shocked to see that a business can speak to it's customers in this way. The response seems to imply that this is not the first time I have visited and reviewed the restaurant; "you again Chris". I assure you that I and my "little Vietnamese girlfriend' have never been to your restaurant before. (We live in the south of Vietnam.) We stumbled on your restaurant by accident. The prices I am comparing are those which I am used to paying, and the opinion about the taste of the prawns was that of my girlfriend. Although I will now definitely tell people not to come to your restaurant, I want to know why you think it is appropriate to send a rude and sarcastic response to a customer who gave a truthful and objective opinion about your establishment.
