    What a lovely night. Service and food were awesome. Wine list needs some love but the friendly staff let us know we can BYO with $5 per head corkage next time. We had the platter which was way to big but very yum.

    Love the food but there needs to be more consideration made for smaller groups. We (a table of 2) were tossed between multiple groups of very loud large, opinionated groups. It’s happened previously and it’s not ok. Our table was booked weeks ago. Consider putting smaller tables at the front and bigger tables at the back. Or lose us entirely.

    The feed me menu for dinner is good value and plenty of food. Good variety and quality and very tasty. A little loud so not for intimate evening but good for a casual night and groups. Very friendly and efficient service too. Highly recommended

    We had a wonderful dinner here, it was very busy but the service was great and food came promptly. We had the feed me menu and there was so much food. Pork bao and coconut prawns were delicious, as was the chicken curry and scotch fillet in plum sauce. My only criticism was the aircon did seem to be working so it was uncomfortable as it was a warm night. Definitely must visit
