Reviewed April 8, 2013

No need to venture into the city now, found our new favourite restaurant. Absolutely loved the ginger pear scallops, crab dumplings with salmon caviar, and the lamb ribs. Plus the dessert plate was to die for. Its a modern take on asian cuisine so different, unexpected and very creative. It can get a bit noisy and crowded but it just adds to the buzzing atmosphere. Can't wait to return!!

Had a simple meal with the family and was eager to try this Asian fusion restaurant. I'm not convinced that this is any more than plated up Chinese. Honey chicken nice and crunchy with a sauce that was too sweet. Sizzling beef was average. Pork trio was tasty but a bit dry.
Food came quickly . Service polite but a bit slow at the start. No one asked if I wanted a second drink.
I would go back and give it another try.

Went last night for birthday celebration of 3 people. Service was appalling, only 5 tables and our entree's took 60 minutes to arrive, then mains another 30 minutes after that. Pork belly with caramel sauce, to me it seemed like pork belly with a black bottled sauce tipped over it. The XO prawns was best dish of the night, nice and crunchy prawns with tasty sauce. Chicken in coconut sauce - chicken hard to find. I was disappointed and probably won't return.

The modern infused chinese fusion food is a delight to find on this side of the yarra!! They have sense of class, service, atmosphere and a reasonably priced menu. Its not really expected in this sort of establishment. The menu is so different, I can't really explain. All I can say is
special mentions go to their ginger pear scallops (it looks more french than chinese though), the caramelised porkbelly, and the stuffed mandarin chicken dish. Everything is just a delight in your mouth. And the staff are lovely and you can actually understand them. No broken english here....
You could eat here a few times and still be as surprised as the first time. Feeling peckish now thinking of it. Maybe I book a table now!!

Very ordinary looking restaurant, both inside and out. Food? Nice, a bit different from normal Chinese food. Was it really good? I think it might need another visit to work out. Service a little slow, staff friendly.
