Secret Garden


There was no other reason why I tried Secret Garden. The name. I first noticed it in a Central World directory; forgot it, remembered it, forgot it again until last week in Siam Paragon while waiting for doors to open for the Twilight premiere. I'm not sure if this is a branch of the one in Sathon that everyone is talking about. As it appeared right in front of me while I wandered, and because I promised myself I would try the place, I got in. I was imagining a garden setting and a secret door.


Ahhh... too much novel reading. I sorted my order: pomegranate iced tea (which was too sour for my taste), and warm chocolate with vanilla ice cream and strawberry sauce, which I loved.


Coconut milk was evident in the warm chocolate cake. At least that's what I thought and I did enjoy it.


The only thing I didn't quite like were the backless chairs. I had to be seated in one as the couches were for four persons or more. Next time I will invite some friends to try the signature restaurant in Sathorn with me. I heard the decoration style is reminiscent of a lovely English tea room.

  3. Sounds like a very special place to have some lovely desserts. I wouldn't care for a backless chair either.

  7. Looks like a neat place though backless chairs is indeed uncomfortable. They should upgrade on that part.

  9. The backless chairs do compromise the comfort level of that place. But the food looks so delicious.
