Another 'industrial chic' dining experience: high ceilings, exposed aircon and cabling, noisy noisy NOISY.
Don't get me wrong, the food is exceptional, but it just feels a bit too cool for school if you know what I mean. The staff all have edgy, high maintenance hair styles and look like they've just stepped out of Dazed and Confused; there's a LOT of people watching going on; and the place gets packed out with shouting trendies VERY quickly. As it does fill up so fast it's worth getting there early to minimise waiting time.
That said, I'll definitely be back as I had a major case of food envy! I had the shrimp rice dish with sweet pork and it was a taste sensation, bursting with zingy flavours (I've used this expression before, but it's really the best way to sum up this new wave of asian fusion cuisine), it was utterly moorish and I could easily have eaten the same again. My friends had: musuman curry (rich and sensuous), cuttle fish (crisp and fresh), Pad Thai (bursting with zingy flavours again!). All very nice.
