My earliest memory of Commonwealth Street was to have my eyes tested as a young child. These days the little street tucked between the city and Surry Hills is home to a plethora of wine bars and restaurants. And this highly awarded restaurant has occupied Commonwealth Street for several years now. The occasion was a birthday celebration and we decided to get there early as they do not take bookings for small groups. The restaurant is sleek with long, polished wooden tables and the chefs can be viewed in the middle of the restaurant working on the different dishes. We decided to go with the banquet. We began with the famous Betel leaf with ginger, chilli and crab. Then the equally famous eggnet with pork, prawn, peanut and coconut flavours. Superb. The highlight though was probably the Mussaman curry. A big hit with bite. This was followed up with the carmelised pork hock with five spice and chilli. There was broccoli and jasmine rice to accompany all of this. We found a bit of room for the most delicious dessert of coconut and fruit. A really wonderful place to enjoy good food with friends. The restaurant is class with quality. Good wines too.
