I went here for a board dinner and we had share plates of all sorts of good things! Very tasty modern asian, and delicious wines to accompany. Ambience was terrific and all up a very good location and meal.

We had dinner here with friends and although we were informed before hand that our booking was limited to a certain time we weren't hurried on when dinner ran over. The food was tasty and there was plenty of variety. The service was fine. Definitely a good option for a night out with friends.

This is one of my favourite lunch time restaurants in Melbourne. The $28 deal where you pick 3 main courses to share (with as few as 2 people) is good value, considering the quality of the food and the generous portions. The pork belly is sticky, crunchy and beautifully accompanied with a honey sauce, loads of mint and coriander. The... More

The pork belly is fantastic as is the lamb shoulder The long dining tables make for a different dining experience. The food is very good and the staff cheerful and helpful. We sat at the end of one of the long tables and it was quite private. I had been here once before earlier 2014 and booked this time for... More

OMG this place has the most amazing food. We had the $79 banquet and the amount of food was perfect. The lamp ribs were melt in your mouth as was the lamb shoulder. Everything just set my tastebuds into a frenzy. Best meal we had in Melbourne during our whole trip.

Impressive place! Staff excellent, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Food was delicious; especially the beef larb! Wines were a bit on the pricy side.

Never again! We came here a few years ago when they had the sofa in the bar section but we came back again with another couple who wanted to come back as they had their own table for 6 so to appease them, we came along. The sofa in the bar area was no longer - replaced with more table... More

The lunch banquets are perfect for groups and you get more dishes to choose from. The food is always fantastic here. Still the best pork belly! Tried the twice cooked ribs... And we'll... They were like a meat lolly pop! Simply fall off the bone, melt in your mouth...YUM!

A family night in the city for NYE was our wish. We would have preferred an early sitting so we could watch the early fireworks, but because we were rather .ate in organising, we settled for an 8.15 sitting at Red Spice Road in McKillop Street, Melbourne. We were delighted with the service and the food. The set menu consisted... More
