    Staff can be more professional, came in with my partner and was greeted nicely but I then requested for the booth and their response was you have to spend $200 or more? Very judgemental. I asked if it was reserved? They said no. Thanks for making me feel that way guys

    Booked a table for 3 people got seated at a table for 2 with a setting for 2, on the smallest make shift table to increase capacity right on the bar wall with a high chance of hitting your head on the bar edge. Brought the food out all at once with no place to put the dishes. Service was way below Par. The Red wine was below the 150ML/glass standard drink. Experience was absolutely shocking. Hope they lift up their standards for the price you pay.

    Extremely disappointing, was recommended here as a mid range dining experience. Food was average at best and service was absolutely shocking. Had to ask for a drink each time and was a struggle to get a server over to our table dispite three of them standing behind the bar chatting to each other.

    What a fantastic spot for a cozy date night or dinner with friends! We indulged in the Fill Me Up menu, priced at $59 AUD per person, and it was an absolute delight. The food was simply divine, and the drinks complemented the meal perfectly. However, when it came to desserts, we found them to be a tad overpriced for the quality. It's a small hiccup in an otherwise stellar dining experience. With such incredible main courses and beverages, it might be worth considering skipping dessert or exploring other options.

    We came here on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The atmosphere was great, love the ceiling lights, very cool. The service was superb and the staff very helpful. I had a lovely cocktail, Geishas Kiss, was superb. My partner had an hibiki whisky. Great choice of drinks, reasonably priced. We chose the chefs tasting menu which was delicious. A variety of different textures and flavours including wagyu tataki, spicy tuna tacos, dim sum, fried chicken, steamed barramundi and bang bang chicken noodle salad. We finished with a chocolate fondant with fairy floss. All beautifully presented and served. Highly recommend it and will be back.
