Went here with a group of 8! Hidden away, lucky we had the entertainment book to direct us here! Service was first class, food was delicious. We chose the banquet so we could try various dishes, we weren't disappointed! The Caramel infused pork belly was to die for with the black vinegar to compensate for the sweetness! The beef curry...

I was so looking forward to my meal here due to my previous visit however I was very disappointed due to lack of serving size for the small plates and the main meal was just warm enough to eat. Sorry but won't be back again.

Had dinner here and the food was definitely up to its usual standard. The drinks service was pretty slow; we ordered cocktails and it was a Saturday night so not unexpected, but more bar staff might have helped address this. Lamb ribs & pork belly an absolute winner.

Great setting for this modern Asian restaurant that is a little bit fancy for your special meal out. The seating is communal, but the seating space is very generous. The set menus are very comprehensive, but al a carte is also just as good. Extensive drinks list with some Asian classics like lychee juices. Food is very tasty and well... More

The soft shell crab were great as were the chicken wings. The Cauliflower Kung Pao, Pork belly, Tofu with fried egg plant, Green curry and Red curry duck were all very good dishes.

Cannot rate this restaurant high enough. Love it! Great express lunch banquet for $29. Hubby & I couldn't eat it all, & were even given a takeaway container! Service friendly & efficient.

Went for dinner with friends. Decor and atmosphere good, staff lovely and friendly but a little over enthusiastic (kept wanting to clear our dishes before we had finished) and food is ok but not inspiring. It was reasonably expensive and for the price there are other great Asian Infusion places in the city. We ate lamb ribs - they were... More

Went with a group of 15 and were quickly seated and served. We had the $69 banquet which was fantastic, although maybe a little heavy handed on the coriander for my liking - not a big deal though. Beer selection was also great, I recommend the lion stout.

The 'famous' pork belly was far too rich/sickly. The salads had far too many ingredients in them! I would not rave over the food, however this venue is good for big groups and seems like they specialise in this.

The food was delicious. Highly recommend the salmon betel leaf entree (specials) which was divine and fully packed with flavour. Prawn green papaya salad was another favourite. Chicken wings entry was big in size but lacking in flavour and the skin could be cooked more crispy. It looked pale. Yummy cocktails.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
