“Outstanding flavours”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Thought the shared tables idea might be "interesting" but really enjoyed the interaction. The flavour of all the food was outstanding.

“Amazing scallops, pork belly and quail”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

The pork belly is a must try at red spice road, crispy skin, delicious slow cooked pork and amazing sauce. We tried the $65 banquet and added the lychee quail salad. Everything was delicious, will visit again.

“Delicious and efficient”
Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

From the super-efficient online booking process to the way that the staff dealt with a minor incident (a china rice spoon breaking into our food), the entire experience was great. The ambience was lively and warm, and for a very busy restaurant it never seemed too rushed. The $65 banquet was excellent value. The standouts were the salted lamb ribs and the pork belly dishes. They also do a very nice line of cocktails, including non-alcoholic. Definitely going to be a repeat visit.

“Fabulous Food”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

When we arrived we were shown to the bar and were served a couple of unique cocktails that the barman had just created. We were not too sure what to order, but our waitress was fantastic in helping us decide from the menu and her choice was perfect. When the food came out it was very tasty and the flavours were like nothing we had tried before. The service and food was so fantastic that we recommended it to everybody that we chatted to over the next couple of days. We will be going back again when we next visit Melbourne.

“Excellent Asian Fusion”
Reviewed May 20, 2013 via mobile

Almost a carbon copy of Longrain, which is no bad thing. We ate there twice in a weekend, both times receiving decent food, efficient service in a relatively good atmosphere. I don't think it's going to set your culinary world on fire, but at the same time it seems like a safe option. We ordered the banquet and didn't receive a bad dish. We'd definitely return!
