“Lively restaurant with good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

The restaurant was easy to find – I walked from Central station: about 10 minutes partly up-hill. The district is relaxed with a nice vibe on the street (street musicians, friendly looking pubs).
I was greeted at the door to the restaurant and immediately shown to a table.
The restaurant is on the small side. It has contemporary decor and is relaxed in style.
The restaurant was busy and lively. I waiters were friendly and helpful. The menu is short but stimulating. I had a salad (interesting flavours and a bit different) and a main (sounded very interesting on the menu but turned out to be a well cooked vegetarian mousaka). Service was speedy.
The wine / alcohol list was short but looked carefully chosen (I don’t drink).
The price was good and the cooking solid and interesting. I’d go back.

“Classy fresh and friendly”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Maybe it was Yulli himself that served us, we wandered in about 7:30 on a Thursday and it was pumping.

Yulli looks just like "Animal" from the muppets and he took our order plus the table next to us without writing it down. Service was fast and snappy.

Extensive menu - we chose a selection of entrees and the beer list was huge - my partner loved that bit.

Better to book, but we got lucky, I was so happy to find a decent non hippy vegetarian spot. The astro turf on the walls is a bit freaky and the toilets are equally trippy.

Looking forward to going back.

“This place is GOOD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Dinned here last week and will be back on a regular basis. The stuffed zucchini flowers and salt and pepper tofu were a few of the things tasted- excellent.
Love the service- just friendly and casual, yet efficient and fast.
Beer lover? This IS the place- maybe 2 dozen beers available.
Highly recommended.

“Veggie Delight”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

Dined here last night and had to be put on the waiting list. This restaurant was packed on a wednesday night. We ended up sitting on high stools opposite the bar. At first i was apprehensive but i realised that it was quite comfortable there. We ordered the salt and pepper tofu, stuffed zucchini, endamame money bags and chive dumplings. The salt and pepper tofu is with a kind of som tum thai inspired salad which was very nice paired with the crispiness of the tofu. The dumplings were another favourite, beautiful fresh tasting filling. Probably my least favourite would be the endamame money bags as they had coconut in them and i found them maybe too sweet. I would prefer some of the food spicier but that's just my taste buds and not for everyone. The bonus with this place is also the fact that there are many boutique beers to choose from and although it's busy it's very chilled. Don't come here expecting fine dining, just chill out and enjoy a nice beer while you wait for your food. There really should be more vegetarian restaurants around as there is obviously a demand out there.
