“Outstanding Asian influenced food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2014

We had a lovely 5 course degustation here - a lot of thought went into each dish, but also into the overall balance of the meal.
As an example, the first course of sous vide squid with wakame & dashi jelly was exquisite.
Given the quality of the food, the degustation was excellent value.
We also ate lunch here - Tuesday to Friday, you can get 2 courses of the same beautiful food for $20! That could be the best value in Port Douglas.
The beautiful garden setting just adds to the whole experience.
Don't miss it!

“Dego menu excellence!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014 via mobile

The chef has put a lot of effort and thought into the dego menu with a great blend of flavours and great presentation. The only shame was that the restaurant was empty with the exception of my partner and me. When the budget allows I will definitely be back
