What a lovely venue this is, the staff were attentive and very welcoming, the decor is beautiful and the food was delicious.
We had the chefs banquet and one of the party was vegetarian, every dish was really tasty and we had a great selection of meat and seafood dishes. It was lovely to see that the vegetarian offerings were not just an afterthought like so many other eateries, they were just as delicious as the other dishes.
The cocktails are also worth a try!
I’ve recommended this restaurant to so many people now, it’s well worth a visit.

We arrived without a reservation and the host made us feel very welcomed. We sat at the bar and had great service. The restaurant is very trendy and was bustling with a very up beat crowd. The menu includes small and large plates for sharing. We had 1 small and 2 large plates and had more than enough to eat. The abelone fritters were very tasty. We had silky mapo tofu and black cod. Both were delicious. The wine and gin options were great. Would definitely recommend.

We went to celebrate graduation, party of 9. What a wonderful experience it was. The food was delicious, all served together. The service was faultless. I took a celebration cake offered to pay a cakeage fee but the staff insisted that it was a pleasure to be part of the celebration . Shame I am not a local, I would be back again next week. Thank you.

A good meal of shared plates. Attentive service from Phoebe. The only sour note came at the end with the expectation of a tip presented on the eft-pos device. A rather sneaky nasty end to what was otherwise a good night.
