“One of my favourite Sydney Restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2008

I live in Sydney, travel extensively all over the world and this is one of my favourite restaurants. The food is modern Thai - and the flavours are simply sensational - it's better than Thai food in Thailand in my view! the Betel leaf, the caramalised pork hock, the salt and pepper snapper.... too good to miss. It's a stylisth little spot with gorgeous young things loitering in the bar (the cocktails are very good) but everybody feels welcome. Communal tables, excellent service, it's a well oiled machine. The only downside is that it's a little pricy (but not outrageous) and doesn't take reservations so either get there early (or late!) or expect to wait in the bar for a while - especially if more than 2 people. Thur to Sat night the bar and restaurant is busy which can be a pain so we either avoid these nights or get there early. I send all my visiting friends there - I'd be surprised if you didn't really enjoy the experience.
