Out for a family birthday this was a great choice as we all love Asian flavours and the food here is such a modern take on the traditional. The chicken liver starter was melt in the mouth and so tasty - four of us were sharing and perhaps should have ordered two plates it was so good. The main of "white chicken" was the most amazing texture, melt in the mouth and so flavoursome in a very subtle way, the signature duck dish was an explosion of flavour and a wonderful contrasting texture to the delicate chicken.
The down side were the complicated conditions - this place is so popular it seems there is always a queue at the door before it opens and you can only book for tables of 4 or more, if you are late you forfeit your table - so get there in plenty of time as parking is a nightmare! That's all fine but the tables are very small and the dishes are large, the seating is simple so if like me you need to sit supported be sure to request a table near the wall.
The menu may need some explaining as some of the ingredients are unusual but the wait staff were very helpful and considerate especially if chilli or a certain garnish is not your thing.
The specials were handwritten but a bit illegible - again the staff were busy but happy to explain.
The least favourable aspect of this otherwise really good restaurant was the lavatory - one for the whole place and I even saw a member of the kitchen staff hovering waiting to use it!! It was not particularly nice to use and frankly disappointing considering the reputation of the cuisine being consumed here. Would we go again? perhaps not, but only because we have tried it now (and enjoyed it ) but there are so many other choices in Sydney...
