Drinks came out quickly- food came out a little too quickly. Entrees had not been finished before mains arrived & being a small table, meant we we moving plates/glasses around to accommodate. Food was sensational though. Flavourful & delicious.

Staff were absolutely lovely, they were running slightly behind but gave us seats at the bar while we waited for our table and kept us up to date the whole time. The food was delicious and great value for money, we were eating delicacies and still left full! Overall awesome experience, one of my new favourites.

The food was absolutely amazing, fresh clean flavours, bao buns & spring rolls were incredible, we had a mix of vegan & meat dishes & all were really good.
It’s a little noisey but the food & service are well worth it.
Great night

Food was amazing and servings were quite generous. Our server was super friendly and efficient. Outside dining was a bit squished for 4 people. Otherwise, great experience.

Beautiful cumin lamb skewer and betal wrapped beef. Flavoursome with it's fragrant seasoning. My friend loved her fried rice.
The servers were accomodating for us when it suddenly stormed and took us inside and offered us another round of their delicious cocktails on the house.
Overall a fantastic deal for a group of 3 guests with delicious food.

The food was insane! So tasty. The cocktails perfect! The biggest let down was the toilets! Had to go next door as they share the toilets with Taco Bill for their customers to use. We were the first people to arrive for the lunch service and I asked to use the bathroom, she explained where to go and the toilets were filthy! It was the start of the day and neither toilet had toilet paper. When I went back I kindly mentioned to the waitress that both toilets needed toilet paper and she said ok thank you. I again went and used the bathroom as we left after our lunch and still no toilet paper! Toilets were disgusting. Such a let down to a beautiful lunch. Service was ok but I’ve had better.

Dined here for the first time and absolutely loved it. The customer service was warm and welcoming. I kindly requested a table inside of it became available, which they were able to do once we arrived. The staff is kind and the food is delicious!
