This place is truly an amazing experience for all foodies and hipsters alike. We ordered Prawn Firecracker, Cashew Salad, Pad Thai with chicken and orawn, Pork Belly, and rice. Plenty of food for 2. Some of the best Thai food we've eaten anywhere including Thailand. Prices are reasonable. Service is exemplary. There is a real buzz to this eating house... More

He is passionate about food, wine, beers and his job. He even went to the trouble of sitting down and suggesting the best order of Craft beers. Just... More

Unique beer hall surroundings. Great selection of draft beers. Nice wait staff interested in matching the palate with one of their wines or beers. Good food too.

Nice bar with large selection of beers, wine and cocktails. I always struggle to find the entrance of the place as is it a small door on a relatively crowded street. I never had food there, but always enjoy to go back for a nice beer

I was given a wee table and a HUGE wine list - where do you start - I chose one of the specials - and asked for help chosing food too - my very friendly waitress chose Red Pork Belly Curry - it was VERY tasty indeed! It seems it is their signature dish - I can see why !... More

What started out as a quick drink,ended as a superb dinner and a most memorable evening. Friendly neighbors, knowledgable and efficient staff in a wonderfully relaxing space, provided the basis, add an exhaustive drinks list and fast inspired Asian meals and you have all you need. We loved it!
