I'd been recommended this place and was surprised how good it was. The menu is small but the quality is so good it doesnt matter. It's a touch on the pricey side but it definitely does deliver - we paid $100 for two people including entree and a couple of drinks and certainly feel it was good value. Look forward to our next visit.

Living in Surry Hills there is plenty of choice for quality restaurants. Rambutan is our favourite. Have never had a bad meal.

The duck is excellent and flavoursome as a main with the skin at just the right texture. The trout starters are great too with an unusual taste sensation in terms of flavour and texture.

No meal is complete without a cocktail here and the Beijing apple martinis ar consistently of a high quality without being too sweet as is common in other bars.

Every time we get the bill we are surprised that it is so low. Certainly the quality here is up to the standard of the much more expensive longrain close by.

We had dinner in a large group on Friday night, so we knew crowd was to be expected. Service staff was great, cocktail was good too. Unfortunately the food was not as great. It was a mix of Australian and Asian style, an interesting concept. We had the banquet so, a series of different food was served from tofu, duck, beef, samosa, to steam brocolli. The food was OK, had it been served in a cheaper eating place. The worst of all was the dessert. The ice cream was already melted when it was served.

Nice Asian fusion, but overrated.
