  • The Secret Garden...

    This is an entertaining but average episode featuring Gordon Ramsay's amazing resolve to improve the sagging business of the restaurant 'Secret Garden'.

    Are the owners just looking for quick publicity for their restaurant when they agree to be featured on 'Kitchen Nightmares'? I believe the chef and owner Michel stated he was $300,000 in debt and still he acted like he neither wanted or needed Gordon's help.

    The massive fireworks at the very end of the show between Gordon and Chef Michel were signaling complete failure. A producer must have stepped in at the crucial point when Gordon walked out and quickly (or so it seemed) returned. So was Chef Michel really converted after all? I checked the Secret Garden's website and it's seems he has reverted back to his original menu. Oh well...
