Fantastic place to go with friends, the food was amazing and so was the service. We will definitely be going there again. Crispy pork belly, duck salad and the orange glazed prawns are an absolute winner. A must try.
Wait staff were very attentive in a good way, and all of the food was delicious, especially the crispy pork belly and the pancake. I would definitely go back!
Wonderful food and service! Absolutely a must visit for the food, as it is very original. The setting is very classy and super funky. This is not our first visit or last, as we keep returning.
