The food here was absolutely sensational! My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and wanted somewhere funky and modern, and we got what we wanted.

The $32.50pp banquet is such good value and left us with way more food than what we needed. We'll be back!

Good value and pretty good service but the chicken was really bad quality and the other food was average. Not bad for an average meal but not really impressed.

After being recommended this restaurant by a friend, we decided to give it a go for a special celebration. Unfortunately we were really disappointed with the food. We ordered the chicken bao and we were unsure what part of the chicken was used but the meat was literally slimy and had cartilage/fatty bits in there. I then ordered the Vietnamese coconut curry which was more of a cream soup and was essentially inedible as the taste was extremely strong. I had about two bites and couldn’t eat any more because of the creaminess and the soup like texture. My partner had the stir fry beef which was way too sweet. I’m sorry to say but even the coconut rice wasn’t cooked properly as it was over cooked and hard/sticky. Further, the waitress went around with $5 shots and charged us an extra $5 for a shot we never took. Although the staff were kind, they need to make sure they’re charging people accurately. I wouldn’t recommend the food here unfortunately!

The food came as our time limit was due - when the waitress put the food down she had the audacity to tell us people for the next sitting we’re here and they were waiting in the alley way for us to finish. It left a sour taste in our mouth and we could not enjoy the food and we felt pressured to finish our meal. It wasn’t our fault the food took an hour and a half to come out.
The waitress also split curry on one of my friends brand new shirts and then a shot all over the table and blamed it on being one of those nights, no apology.
Super disappointing as we were so excited to get a booking.

Nice place inside, though street side can be a little noisy. Lovely staff, the 2 girls who served us were brilliant, food though could be better. Noodles weren't great, but everything else was of a good to high standard. New twist on Vietnamese, though could be a little better overall. Nice experience and attentive staff.

Had the $32.50 each menu which was almost too much food between the two of us! Highly recommend trying the vegan duck baos and the pork belly and apple slaw! Service was excellent with the quality of food to match. Definitely going to make it a regular part of my Melbourne restaurant rotation!

Amazing evening! Delicious food and drinks and the music was epic!!! Meal was a little delayed and they needed our table back pretty quickly so we were moved up to the bar to finish our drinks where we were entertained by the amazing Jay making cocktails and chatting with us! We were so impressed by him! Even though he was slammed with orders he was still so friendly and happy to chat to us! Hannah was also fantastic as our waitress and gave us a wonderful evening! We will be back! Thanks so much to Hannah, Jay and all the team 😁
