I brought my aunt and uncle to Secret Garden for a dinner and we were disappointed with the dishes ordered, which included grilled seabass, clear soup with toufu, vegetables and minced pork, black pepper soft shell crab and mixed vegetables.
The grilled seabass was a major let-down. I was expecting it to be as good as what you can find at Somboon Seafood Restaurant, but no, the Secret Garden version was off by a mile. My aunt also complained that the black pepper soft shell crab was overly salty, which I agreed. The remaining two dishes we had were quite unremarkable.
But the Secret Garden does have its saving grace. When I asked the restaurant manager if she knew where I could get some antacid pills for a relative who was too ill to join us for dinner, she said the nearest pharmacy would be too far to walk to and she volunteered to have one of her staff ride his bike to get the pills for me. This was an act of kindness which I will forever appreciate.
To be fair to the Secret Garden Restaurant, I have only tried four dishes on its extensive menu, and didn't order anything from its bakery, located next door to the restaurant, which appeared to be very popular.
I would go back to the Secret Garden to sample more of its dishes. Who knows, I just might be proven wrong on the second visit!
