This small restaurant is located in the Central Park complex on St Georges Terrace in the city, and is fairly close to the busport and the Esplanade train station. Bookings can conveniently be made online via the Dimmi portal.
The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful - restaurant doors were held open for us as we entered and again as we left. The tasting menu was modified without prior notice to suit vegetarian requirements which was greatly appreciated.
The tasting menu started with edamame beans, which is not usually a favourite of mine. These were the best I have had - they were served piping hot drizzled with truffle oil and pink salt and were delicious. The other courses were beautifully presented and full of contrasting flavours and textures. My favourite course was the shiitake "cappuccino" soup.
Dessert was a choice of ice cream - I chose the green tea which was served with a "milk bubble" on a crunchy bed of what looked and tasted a bit like crushed cornflakes. Room for improvement there.
The wine list was small, but the wines were unusual and I was pleased with the Eden Valley riesling that I ordered. There is a much larger selection of sake, Japanese vodka and plum wines for a more authentic accompaniment.
Lastly, the toilets were very clean and nicely decorated with a small bamboo plant in between the basins.
