Secret House offers a stylish take on home-style Vietnamese cooking close to Ben Thanh Market. The main dining room features mud-and-straw walls and rustic lamps fashioned from fish traps, while outside tables overlook a herb garden. The extensive menu includes some countryside specialities, such as nuoc mam kho quet, a caramelised fish sauce used as a dip. Flavours and presentation are top-notch.

Located on a wide alleyway (marked with number 55) off Đ Le Thi Hong Gam.
