A group of us went out for lunch and everything was delicious and could not fault anything from the starters; oysters, dumplings, duck - mains; fish and steak cooked to perfection and desserts.

I couldn't fault the dinner, there were four of us and we all had different meals and they were all perfect, delicious and adequate size. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was a little too dark and that made it difficult to read the menus. A bit expensive but a good place to go for a special occasion. I would... More

We have eaten here a few years ago and both times we have had great service and food. Last nights meal included a mutton bird entree and mains of pork, lamb and seafood which satisfied all 5 diners. The wine list was good with a wide range and also some special cellar selection older vintage wines.

Had dinner here with my flatmates and it was great. The food was excellent and service was superb. A bit on the expensive side, but we already knew that, it is a wonderful place and the atmosphere is good too.

Fabulous meal. Tried the Matariki winner entree with mutton bird - just peck your way through this to savour the flavours. Main course - Ham Hock- once again the flavours - very Vietnamese . Yes - I squeezed in dessert - Tiramasu- delicious with bitter dark chocolate.

Having read much about this restaurant we went very much as a spur of the moment, walk-in dinner on our way south one night. The entire experience from the wait staff to the food to the decor was excellent. Excellent wine choices, interesting and exciting food matches with very reasonable prices for what is a high end dining experience. The... More
