“Great food in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Loved the food,service was great and the place was really pumping, perfect location for people watching, we even spied a celebrity !
The duck pancakes and wontons were delicious as were all our courses, which were very generous and plenty for four to share, would definately go back.

“Overpriced for what it offers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The restaurant was good and I have nothing against it but I've come to think that if you want Chinese nothing beats Chinatown. Upmarket Chinese just did not do it for me and on the value for money scale I think Chinatown does it 100 times better by weeding out poor performers so you get consistently good quality.

“Spot on! Modern, slick and delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Great location. Best wontons I think I have ever had (black bean and chilli sauce I think?), generally interesting and delicious menu, professional and helpful service, and not stupidly priced. Awesome salt chilli squid - a real bite and melt in your mouth tender. Yum - missing it already. Makes me wish I lived in Sydney. Asian with a twist.

“Consistently good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Been here a couple of times now and enjoyed both evenings. Attentive staff and wonderful food...I have a seafood allergy so I'm nervous eating out in Asian style restaurants- it wasn't a problem. The seating inside can get a little too close, our table of two sitting next to a rather loud table of four.. All in all an enjoyable place to dine. Will be a regular I'm sure..
Highly recommend
