The style of dining is designed around light tapas bites moving to the more substantial, all delicious and perfect for sharing a quick bite or a lingering meal. The menu itself is concise, with regularly changing, seasonal fare celebrating local produce.

The family decided to book this place for a dinner for my BD. Our kids are 18+ and I would not consider this place as a good option for young kids. Located in the heart of Melbourne CBD, this place offers a modern Asian dishes in a trendy package. The food comes in 3 sizes and can be shared. We tried quite a few of them and they all been tasty. The one above all for us was the Brisket dish that was to die for. Price is on the high side (our avg was $80 PP with one dring PP).

The best way to describe the delicious food is Modern Burmese ( if in fact there is such a description). Not truly traditional but still with all the flavours of Burma. Close your eyes as you eat and the food will transport you. Not a big menu of Burmese cuisine but very tasty.

Hi Fay W

Thank you for your wonderful review,

We had a quick dinner here before catching a theatre show nearby. And service was excellent! The food ... oh my god... were one of the best that I've tasted. The chicken dish were so good to eat with the rice. We've cleaned it well. This is definitely one of those dining experience that my friends and I will remember for a very long time.

Lovely meal, decor and service. We had a starter and main course each. Tasty flavour combinations and well-presented dishes. Very pleasant ambience. Attentive, friendly service. We tried this restaurant because it was one of the restaurants where we could use a gift card we had. We would choose to eat here again.
