“Overpriced and Pretty Ordinary Asian Food”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

We took family members here as a special treat and based on reviews here, I have to say that the food was underwhelming, my serve of a fish dish was 3 extremely small pieces in a fairly ordinary sauce for $29.00, expensive and not particularly tasty. The others in our party were a little more happy with their food than I was, but at $240.00 for 4 people I'm sure there is better value to be had for better quality food and service.

“Wonderful modern Asian cuisine”
Reviewed July 31, 2012 via mobile

Having read the great reviews for this restaurant I was hoping the food and service would live up to its reputation. In short it did! We dined mid week when it was quietly busy and every course was a delight, complemented by friendly and attentive service. A great night and we will definitely return before we leave lovely Sunshine Beach.

“Great Locals Special”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

As a quieter time of year in the Noosa region, it's great to see this top quality restaurant is being innovated in the cooler months and offering a Wednesday night local special for $39 for 3 courses. The food was plentiful, great quality and interesting with the Asian influences. If you enjoy good food, a great atmosphere, excellent service and quality food for a great price this is Noosa's hot spot. Don't miss out, its for a limited time ony.
