We went a few years back and thought it was okay but after being given vouchers from friends we visited again and then again it was so good. Interesting and complex menu. The staff and service here was excellent, friendly and professional.

We celebrated my partners birthday here. We were given a fantastic table in the front window and the service was exceptional, professional but still friendly. The menu was incredible so we chose many of the dishes to share. A fantastic birthday plate was bought out at the end of our meal. Highly recommend.

OK, this is the only place we ate in Hamilton, but what a meal! The oysters were fresh with a lovely dipping sauce and the crispy pork hock with Thai salad lived up to all the rave reviews. The wine list is a little pricey, but good quality, ditto the food. If you only eat in one place in Hamilton, eat here!

Tonight we were looking for the complete package to celebrate our 17th Wedding Anniversary with our children - atmosphere, service and amazing food.

We enjoyed our night and amazing food but for the price (spent nearly $400 for two adults and two teens) we will probably see what else is in Hamilton.

When entering we were taken back a little with a bar at the entrance (admittedly we were visiting a restaurant and expected maybe a reception desk and not the bar)

Seating in the booths was comfortable and intimate.
Host immediately greeted us. Poured water and took orders. Staff were friendly.
We were pleasantly surprised when given a free appetiser to get the evening started. They knew they probably weren't coping as well and apologised for delays. Possibly would be better on a quieter night. Also note there was a large group arrived about 30 minutes after us.

We did have to ask for water to be refilled and wave when we needed to order more drinks. Just didn't feel as though anyone was really look after us after we ordered.

Unfortunately the kitchen door leads straight into the dining area with no screens or double door barriers. This lead to a very unpleasant odour wafting through the restaurant for a good 5-10 minutes.

Food was superb with amazing flavours, textures and certainly lifted the experience.

Still enjoyed the night but willliok at other options next time.

This place deserves the rave reviews. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Food was awesome. Atmosphere was great - even with a very loud party making a lot of noise.
