Gret foods and services, nice settings

We two came to the restaurant from TripAdvisor's rating. Foods are very delicious with distinctive taste. The duck dish was the best we have ever had. Service was very good and we love the open setting outside as well as inside. Highly recommend!

Such amazing flavours of food set in a very intimate dining area. Dim lighting and candles on the table set the mood. Definitely try the beef cheek and roti bread! So incredible.

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times. It's kind of pricey, but I think that if you are looking for Asian food, this is definitely something special. They do interesting twists on Asian dishes. There are also some great cocktails. The seating is one long communal table. I don't mind this setup but it can be hard... More

Now I'd love to be one of those people who find the time to review everywhere I go but that's just not my life, but this time I felt I had to. We've been to Jimmy Liks before (and reviewed it ) a year or so ago and loved it, so we were pretty happy to be going back for... More

Hi Triand Thank you for the review, I'm really glad you loved the food etc. My apologies for the service that night we were unexpected very busy and my staff, although incredibly hard working, did struggle to cope. I raced in to help after a quick text from one of the girls but things were fairly crazy by the time... More

If you prefer dishes that combine texture, taste over spiciness, then this is the place for you. The expert blending of experience and adventure shines though in every dish. You would be hard pressed not to come away completely satisfied. the long tables and the communal atmosphere, combined with great cocktails and super wine list just add to the experience,... More

The cocktail list is a short sharp experience in taste. Holding true to the asian flavours & a dedication to quality, the list is a fresh & innovative example of today's cocktail phenomenon with just a splash of the best of the old school classics. The wine list is fastidiously dedicated to compliment our Asian style of cooking, dominated by young unwooded & well balance whites and lightly wooded spicier reds.
