High expectations mixed with high hunger can be a deadly combination.

My partner and I were impressed with decor and lovely service.

If we had have asked that our three entrees and two mains be brought out one by one I am sure we would have enjoyed it more and the dishes would not have lost their heat.

Very good food, atmosphere but we thought it overpriced. With meals like this,boiled rice ought to be complimentary and our chocolate mousse dessert was not prepared for us, it had been made earlier - not a serious crime, but it was a bit of an ordinary finish. 6/10

I dined at Wild Duck and found it to be a fine gastronomic experience. I was in a business group of seven and we had our own room. The service was excellent, always attentive, glasses refilled perfectly. We chose the banquet, the highlights of which were the duck - no surprises there - the beef dish and the spicy chicken. The prawns were great, too, and just to be sure we were satisfied, the chef supplied an additional pork dish, without request. Each dish was explained clearly and we chose a Cabernet Merlot blend from the Margaret River. A thoroughly excellent evening.

A menu of tasty Asian food, very light but full of flavour. A spacious restaurant with plenty of room. And not so noisy. Attenti e service and reasonably priced for the service and menu. Disappointed in the desert menu but enjoyed cocktails, entrees, mains and accompaniments. Wine by the glass as it was a school night. We are already planning our next dining visit.

This up market chinese restautant is modern and stylish. The five people in our group enjoyed a quiet table in a corner, with plenty of space around us, which was important. The service was very attentive service, although the restaurant was moderately busy on the night we visited. We ordered the $48 banquet, which was very nice, but the serves weren't large. This left plenty of room for desert, which was an additional cost, but very nice and not the type usually found at a restaurant. We took our own wine, so I can't comment on the wine list. The bill came to $70/head, with the banquet, desert and a couple of our guests had a beer or coffee. All together it was a very pleasant experience.
