The food was great and will definitely visit again. The only negative was being referred to by our waitress as "you guys". She was pleasant and efficient but a little bit of training would help.

Quite a hit spot in this area and it's full house when we visited and it's only a normal day of the week. Food was great and we love especially the Korean chicken and pork belly, the curry is great too.

We had lunch here recently and loved the idea that dishes are share. We chose the steamed pork buns, spring rolls and cross hatched chips which were all declared delicious. We also had the lamb skewers which I thought were good, but partner thought they were a bit chewy and didn't like the flavour. We will be returning, would like... More

Fantastic place to eat, lovely food, great helpful staff. Interesting menu all freshly prepared. Lovely cocktails but rather expensive but then again they always are. I would highly recommend eating here.

I read the reviews on Macau and decided we should give it a go - it was amazing! We ordered the stir fried greens, steamed pork buns, Bang Bang Chicken, Salmon Teriyaki Bowl and the Fries - couldn't fault any of the dishes! Flavours were great and we ended up with so much food we struggled to finish it all.... More
