I was told back home it was worth trying. It took a little bit to find it, (only cause we're not familiar with the city), and when we did find it, we were told it was full. Admittedly it was Saturday night. They offered the opportunity to sit at the bar and wait so we did that. As a booth was free up there the bar staff arranged for a menu and we ended up eating there. Must be one of the best Asian fusion meals I've ever had. The flavours were delicate yet distinct, tasty and satisfying. Duck & almond mince on betel leaf was wonderful. Soft shell crab great. The real surprise was the brussel sprouts. I'm an ex-boarder; the one thing I'd avoid at all costs is brussel sprouts. it was magic! It's on my list of must do again!

Went looking for a feed with two other couples after a long day at the races, we were easily accommodated and had a most pleasant meal without any real expectations before arriving. Bar-tender (not waiter!) who served out food was great, as was atmosphere and recommended dishes. Will be back!

Went for a birthday dinner with friends. I hadn’t tried this place out before but had heard a lot of good things. It didn’t disappoint. The service was fantastic if not a little if the top. Feed was delicious. Pork belly is not as good as red spice and serving sizes are on the small side especially for the price. I’d come back but probably have to be another special occasion.

Went here with a couple of work mates and we started in the cocktail bar upstairs. Don't miss the Cocktail bar as it was excellent. Many well prepared cocktails available on the drinks menu as well as beers wines and spirits. The Beers available were very good. Mid to high price range but made up by the great service and atmosphere. Dinner on the middle level was shared plate style. Small medium and large servings sizes to suit any group size. The staff recommended the number of pieces based on the amount of people in your group. Can recommend the pork belly, octopus, Brussel sprouts (yes they were yummy) and duck. Mid to high prices pending your hunger. Very relaxed style and staff were very good in the restaurant and cocktail bar. Will be going back soon.
