Firstly, loved everything from the word go....
At very short notice, I emailed the restaurant to ask for a booth for our Friday evening reservation as it was our 5 year wedding anniversary and they happily accommodated my special request.
The service was fabulous, we were never without a glass of water or drinks. The staff were observant and naturally friendly without being annoying.
The food was beautifully presented, and tasted just as good as it looked. The stand outs were the fish cakes and pot stickers as entrees, followed by generously sized mains. The whole snapper (which is big enough to share) was presented in a way I had not seen before and had the perfect balance of salty, sweet & sour. My husband had the duck, which once again was a stand out in terms of presentation, flavour and serving size.
We skipped dessert but transferred to the sunken bar to finish our drinks.
The overall ambiance & decore of the restaurant is lovely, especially the exposed brick wall, dimmed lighting, open kitchen & stunning function room downstairs. I also liked the attention to detail in the toilet in terms of individually wrapped hand towels.
Without a doubt, we will be back....
