    Food was lovely. Service was amazing. The cocktails we ordered were good but I would prefer to get either a wine or a rosé. Will be definitely be coming back again to try more of the food and drinks.

    This restaurant is a gem. I love the authentic flavours and the menu. The degustation is creative and fun. The weeknight specials are a bargain and the best steak frites in Sydney. The indigenous flavours of the cocktails are so inventive and delicious. Have dined here a few times and cannot wait to dine here again. the staff are attentive and helpful. Best new(ish) venue in Sydney.
