Honestly, the food was great and the service was awesome. I did not catch the waiters name but loved his enthusiasm and style (blue hair). However we found a hair in our food, my partner and I weren’t too fussed about it and thought we...would just mention it to the waiter. He quickly went and saw, who I assumed was, his manager and came back without saying anything and charged us full price then said thank you. Not quite the response I was expecting- did not apologize. This kinda gave us a down buzz. Menu is a bit pricey: Duck fried rice (with hair) $28 medium portion size, Half Fried Duck decent portion size $35 and veges small portion size $12 = $75. Again the food and service was great, it was just that last moment that ruined the experience for us.More

12/10 would recommend to anyone and everyone. We had an egg & peanut allergy and our waiter, Tiago, was absolutely superb in making sure we could eat the food. So, so, soooo delicious, would recommend the chicken starter and the lamb curry.

Came here for dinner with the family. The place wasn't particularly kid friendly (dark lighting, cramp dining arrangement, small tables) , but we didn't mind too much as we were in the mood for some great food. The first dish was the BBQ baby back...pork ribs. It was a delicious way to start the meal, definitely recommend. Needless to say, my expectations for the rest of the meal was high. The next dish was the lamb curry. This wasn't quite as good, but still held up. The curry had the right amount of spiciness and the lamb was cooked to melt-in-your-mouth perfection. But it was a bit over seasoned. We had a few roti to go with the curry. The roti was very flaky but lacking in flavour. But to be fair, it did pair well with the curry which was too salty. The last dish we ordered was the pad seuw. And this is where the dining experience went downhill. It was too heavily seasoned, and every mouthful tasted like you were eating salt. Furthermore, the amount of noodles that came with the dish was almost insignificant, there just wasn't alot of it. It almost felt like I ordered wok tossed vegetables because all I had was greens! All in all, meal started out well enough, but went downhill from there and crashed landed at the bottom.More

Cant remember the exact name of the dish now but we went back there again a week later simply because of the dish we had a week earlier. An unusual combination of style and cuisine made this dish stand out above all others I have...eaten for a long while.More

We came here for dinner, and what a gem we found. The food is absolutely delicious. Service is excellent and staff are really friendly. We started with two smaller plates...both were incredibly good...the wagu bao bun is to die for..and then had two large plates....Duck fried rice is full of duck, and the wagu stirfry was just so damn good! Cant wait to go back. Happy hour cocktails were also fantasticMore
