I don't hesitate to say that this is one of the best restaurant in Auckland. If you miss Asian decent dishes, this restaurant is the best choice. Plus, staff members are so friendly and courteous. You can satisfy your appetite to the full extent.

Went for dinner on a busy sat night. Great service and wine selection. Food came out without any delay and was delicious. Best were the Bok Choy, BBQ lamb curry and the slow roasted brisket! Will be back again soon!
