Great atmosphere and beautiful, interesting food.
Michelle is a very friendly but highly professional waitress.
Rose wine was very nice even though “organic”.
Coffee with Campari was a nice surprise.

What a fabulous evening.

We went on the recommendation of a friend and had a wonderful evening

I loved the quirky cocktail list. The Vietnamese/ Thai fusion was amazing.

Happy to recommend this venue to anyone.

The quality of the Ingredients in the street bowls (We ordered the pork and the beef) was great but the balance of flavours was not there - too salty. I hope the chef takes note. Lovely place inside to chill. Decent lunch prices.

Great food and service. The noise level was too high to hear a conversation, and it was a bit expensive.

Fabulous food. I am gluten free and they catered very well for my requirements. All of the food was delicious, especially the beef which just fell apart. Highly recommend

Great Asian infusion style food. Excellent customer service. Great little spot for dinner!! Caters amazingly to GF DF dietary requirements - I could pretty much eat anything! And the cocktails and desserts were to die for!

Advertised as FODMAP available if advised prior which was done for a lunch booking. Good sized plate but FODMAP fish and lettuce in oyster sauce was underwhelming.

Food here is always good. South East Asian with a twist. We recommend the Roti, the Radish Cake and the Mango Colada.

Lovely food, service was on point and the setting was also very nice, my only complaint was the high level of noise but that is my issue not the restaurants, I’m more a romantic ambience man but overall a fantastic meal and service :)

service was good , food was fair the duck spring rolls were great, and the roti itself was good sauce and condiments with them were a bit average, chicken dry and sauce bland, vegan curry was very smoky taste more burnt than smoky vegetable flavours. staff were very good though.

The Feed Me group meal option is excellent value, with generous serves and the service was faultless. One of our group was celiac and this was catered to without fuss and with as much deliciousness as the test. Great wines/beer and advice as well.

Will be back again and again.

Fantastic food and friendly service.
On the upper end price wise for a family though
Would go again but maybe at lunch time when it might be better value?
