We had every intention of going elsewhere and got seduced at the door by the special 2 courses for $35.

The special offer had 4 mains to choose from and the only regret is that there wasn't a fish dish.

We had boef bourguignon which had hearty flavours and a smattering of veges. The serve was huge and could have fed a family of 3 on its own!

The lemongrass chicken was exotic and had real lemongrass; once again large serving but personally would have preferred breast and was mainly leg meat.

My favourite was the pork belly and this was rich and lush and melted in the mouth. It had a sweet plummy sauce. YUM.

Entrees were OK; nothing to write home about.

All in all, fantastic value for money and a boon after a hard hot yoga class causing a big appetite :)

The staff are really lovely and the food is delicious. We have dinner here every few months and it is always great. The menu has quite a few beef dishes that is always a hit for us. The vegetarian options are good too.

Lunched here with friends and enjoyed the different choices on the menu. The comments were that the meals were excellent but the portions were small except for mine. The Chicken coconut curry was served in a coconut and was quite a large serving but the flavours were just not there. The starters were excellent and the wine list expensive. The staff were very good. We walked from St. James station through Hyde Park to Riley Street.

We had lunch at La Mint and opted to share three dishes. A Pho Pot of the most delicious delicate pho stock we've ever had, chicken salad and duck confit. The chicken salad was a harmony of flavours and the duck confit (while a little dry) had complementary flavours in the dish. A step above the average Vietnamese Restaurant with quiet welcoming surroundings, we will certainly be back on our next visit to Sydney.

Last minute search on a Friday night and I quite liked the look and sound of this place. Turned up about 15 minutes early and was seated straight away. Always a plus. Restaurant was not completely full. We went with the degustation menu. Food was delicious but the portions were quite small. Next time we will look at ordering from the menu. A good selection on the food and wine menus. In all we had a good experience. Well worth trying. Try to avoid the table closest to the bar. Cold draft from main door when both closed and open.
