Blown away

First time last night with a group of 9 of us and everyone was blown away. We couldn't all agree on a banquet so we opted instead to pick an entree and a main each but the waiter assured us it was too much food and talked us down a couple of mains. He said we would share anyway and... read more

Went there on a Saturday night. Atmosphere was great. Staff were excellent. We had a banquet for 5. A couple of entrees were good and a couple were okay. Mains - yellow curry was awful and we didn't eat it. The beef was melt in your mouth but again the flavours didn't really come together as well as they should've.... More

This restaurant is hidden down an alley, sort of. Gorgeous fit out and loved the private dining room. The food was plentiful and delicious. Service was great.

I visited here for lunch with my partner. The waiters were happy to explain the menu and give their recommendations. The food came out quick and it was delicious. Their signature dish, the pork, was absolutely the best dish on the menu. The other dishes were only okay. We dined on the banquet as it offered more options so we... More

We were in Melbourne for the weekend and found this amazing restuarant. The food is incredible fresh, spicy and delicious. Will definitely come again on our next visit

My husband and I adore this restaurant. The food is stunning. The pork belly is to die for - the best EVER! We also love the beef ribs... yummm! The desserts are truly magnificent; something quite gastronomic as far as I'm concerned, the best I've tasted in Melbourne. The atmosphere is amazing. Booking is a must, as the restaurant is...

Having been here about 18 months ago we were disappointed that the food seems to have changed from being a bit different to a generic, bland Asian flavour. Dishes were no longer spicy. With all the alternative venues in Melbourne I doubt that we will go back

Went there early in sat night for first time, and won't be our last. Surprised to communal seating although it adds a to the atmosphere. The restaurant itself is beautifully designed with a lot of thought and style. The menu is not exhaustive and the food was "different" and each meal delicious and unique. Service was polite, attentive and comfortable.... More

I have been to both venues in recent months, and tend to prefer the original for personal taste. This place is reliable as a dining option for small or large groups, as the set menu makes life so much easier for everyone. Good value too. And the pork belly is everything it's cracked up to be!

If a communal table doesn't put you off, then I highly recommend this restaurant. The flavours of the dishes present you with a wow factor. Go for the pork belly, one of the best I've ever had. With three of us, we had a set menu, rather than our usual sharing of plates. This is the best way of trying... More
