All the food was mouth-watering...spicy pork was very very hot, but that's to my liking..the 'melting beef' was not an overstatement -it was superbly tender and the accompanying flavours matched it perfectly..topped off with a pleasing cheesecake with chocolate ganache. Will be returning ☺

I hadn't been since it was in Riccarton. It's still just as good. Just a little bigger. Squid was tasty, and the chicken salad was amazing... Just like I remembered it!

Food is fresh and cooked to perfection. Beef rib & cheek is slow cooked and melts away and accompanied with the best sauces. Love the use of coriander on everything!! Amazing desserts (we had 2 each) friendly waitstaff. Thanks!

Been to this restaurant several times since they opened up. Done some reviews quite a while ago. We found the food tonight very tasty and good portions. Excellent staff and a good wine list to supplement the food. Will most certainly be going back.
