“Poor Food”
Reviewed December 19, 2012

I ate there in November. Second time. First time was average and hoped they had gotten better. Tempura seafood was doughy stodge. Schezuan stir fry was done with a SWEET CHILLI sauce. Yuck.
Service was great.

“Good quality Asian style cuisine”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Nice Asian restaurant in Palmer St area. Food is fresh and well presented. Staff are well managed and service is generally quick and efficient. The street atmosphere is good and, most tellingly (is that a word?), this restaurant is busy all week. Mains are generally around $25-30.

“shocking and in very bad taste”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

There was nothing wrong with the food but the service was shocking made even more so by the comments from the staff. If you want to eat here make sure you don't order red wine, if you do then do not complain that it is too hot or too cold or you will find yourselves the subject of a review of your own via facebook courtesy of the waitress, you can then give the manager a laugh by complaining to her as she seems to find it quite amusing. Less amusing is the fact that since the wine was undrinkable we tried to resort to a glass of water but this beyond their capabilities!

“Go the quail”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

A wonderful meal at a reasonable price… must recommend the spicy quail and the salt and pepper steak. Service was ok, however had multiple staff asking us for our drinks orders. Best thing is that it is short stroll from most of the hotels
