We attended as a family group for lunch on a Monday. The food here is Asian fusion and top quality, interesting and fairly priced. Well organised staff and service. Very busy and popular with locals. We will return, highly recommended.

This restaurant is one of my favourites and is in the perfect location in Ponsonby. My favourite are the pork belly buns and tiger prawn dumplings. You can’t go wrong eating here.

The food was delicious. Flavoursome and fresh with authentic flavours. The cocktails were also delicious however slightly disappointing as they took quite a while to arrive at our table after they were ordered. The chocolate dessert we shared was particularly delicious. Will happily return!

Great location to people watch, while having a drink and some good food. Great chicken salad packed with flavour and heaps of chicken. Finally a salad that delivers on quality of ingredients, and also actually has chicken. Delicious broccoli in sticky sauce and rice cooked...More
