Favourite restaurant in Sydney by far, always fantastic food and service.... and the Tea Smoked Duck... Wow. Only one tiny negative (and it is tiny), we were given some laminated menus, it just cheapened it a little for me. Will always go back again and...More

Hi .. I'm a Coeliac and was wondering what Gluten free options you may have. I generally don't like to make a fuss and can eat most foods however I love dumplings but usually these are off the menu for me.

Yes there are options
I'm looking for a an exceptional dining / location experience for 20 guests for my friends 40th. What prices per head and what do you usually recommend in these circumstances. Does this include alcohol and do you do a "set price menu" which includes wine ( red and white)? Thank you
