“Good food; good buzz!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

We hadn't booked and were directed through the full restaurant to the bar area. Service was friendly and swift and the food was very good. There is a reasonable wine list with a good selection at good prices. We were a little apprehensive as we hadn't seen any reviews, but there was no need for worry. An excellent meal; if you need a good enough recommendation it is a heaving and happy restaurant full of locals, like this one. The barista looks pretty knowledgeable, not that we tried a cocktail! Certainly worth a try.

“Great Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

A delightful place to dine. Ambiance & design similar to Ancestry ( think could be owned by same people ) - makes for an almost intimate feel although the tables are together in a narrow ,long room divided in two.Staff very efficient & friendly ( which makes a huge difference in a restaurant. Food absolutely delicious - could not fault any of our dishes

“Good Service and Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

This place has a bar and resto inside. Great ambiance but you have to walk through a not so great passage to get there. Had the vegetable option on the menu but was very delicious. They have a good range on the wines as well.

“Delicious Asian fusion food and buzzing atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Great food - the octopus balls, salmon 2 ways and clams were delicious. Desserts were the highlight, lovely chocolate mousse and creme brulee. Very friendly service and efficient despite the courtyard being packed.
