Lovely restaurant in Balmain. Delicious Salt and pepper squid, betel leaves, Asian greens and pad Thai. Service is friendly and efficient. We were at a very small table so asked for plates to come out slowly which was great.

Popped in for an easy dinner following an appointment in Balmain. Very impressed with the quality of the food and the strong menu. Good service - just enough - available but not annoying. The restaurant is well appointed with plenty of double and quad tables...More

My wife and I had dinner on Saturday night - April 8. The only disappointment was the scallop entry, sauce was beautiful but the scallop was over cooked and was dry. The other dishes were excellent. Service was spot on and great value for money.

We chose the $50 banquet menu and were very pleased with the value. Great service from friendly staff. Surprised that they offer BYO. We would come back here for sure.

We thoroughly enjoyed every dish we ordered, the salt and pepper squid and prawn dumplings for entree were delicious and the couple of mains we ordered were tasty and more than enough for the 3 of us. The Pinot Gris was a great complement to...More
