We came here with a larger group. We went to the back of the restaurant where there is a decent sized bar and a good size courtyard. These are hidden down the back of the property and are not obvious when you come to the door of the restaurant. They are a happening place. Good bar service and the food is very good. Would recommend the dumplings. You get five decent sized ones for $16. A good entree.

We walked in without a booking on a Saturday night and they fit as in with a 50 mins time limit

The service by young man was efficient and polite !

The food was nice with the duck curry and beef short ribs delicious - perfect dishes to have with steam rice

The Bao was ok but we did not enjoy the coconut squid .. the texture was rubbery and felt like it had too much soda in it.

Overall the bill came up to $124 for two.

What a great place, amazing atmosphere with different areas to eat, inside main area, courtyard and bar. The use of bamboo gave a great feeling. Table service was excellent and the choice of food vast and delicious. We had several dishes which we shared and we loved them all. Hardly any wait time for food and the restaurant was full.

Wow - this place is great! I asked for some good Asian food for dinner and we weren't disappointed! The service is great, the food was amazing and arrived so quickly!
Try the lemon chicken and the duck curry with coconut rice - superb!!

What a great little place for a night out with friends, we were sent down the back (front restaurant was full) to the bar and garden area and had a great night. The back section had an awesome dimly lit yet funky atmosphere, anime and Bruce Lee clips projected high on the wall and very friendly and attentive staff. What a surprising find that back section was, awesome!

Food is modern Asian, delicious share plates with plenty of variety (or individual meals if you desire). The fried chicken (deceptively spicy) was a winner as was their bao and seared tuna and green papaya salad. Supplemented by a substantial beer, wine and cocktail list, we had a great night and would go back again! Go check it out
