On our frequent walk along Oxford Street we spotted this relatively new restaurant and decided to give it a try. The food was advertised as Asian fusion and it certainly is an inspiring menu. I had a seafood curry served in a coconut shell but...More

One person wrote 30 different varieties for yum cha? He couldn't count if there was 10 varieties ,I'll lick my balls in the middle of Queen St. The most disappointing yumcha I have ever experienced . Landmark at Sunnybank is way better.

Surely the best Chinese Restaurant in Brisbane. We had a peking duck and whole fish. The duck is juicy inside with crispy skin. Highly recommend!
