“Good service & good tasty food”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Visited by chance as we were passing. The service was attentive and friendly, actually had enough wait staff which is not common these days. We had lamb curry and laksa both of which were tasty and generous portions. Wine list is good for this style of restaurant. Would definitely go back.

“Excellent F&B team and management, food quality dependent on meal”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

the staff here are fantastic. what we guessed was the manager was professional and friendly and this reflects well on his team. i had the shaking beef which was delicious however i found it was either too salty or had to much soy sauce or dressing they put. also if a few more ingredients vege wise would have made it worth the $26. all in all though a very nice restaurant and atmosphere , will be back again

“Underwhelmed”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

My second visit here, still as flavourless as 5 years ago. The menu looks interesting but the dishes are all the same - either hot as hell or bland.

Quite possibly the worst ever execution of chicken satay: rubbery pieces of meat and a spicy, dark sauce with some peanuts in it.

It struck me as an imitation Wagamama - fusion that blends many Asian cuisines into something that pleases no one. Thai, Vietnamese, Filipino and Chinese restaurants abound - better to forego some atmosphere and get authentic food if that's what you want to eat. Or go to Monsoon Poon if you want to drink with friends and have some random pieces of meat and vegetables passed around to soak up the booze.

“Incredible Asian Fusion”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

The food is excellent, a tantalising blend of Asian flavours, adapted to the discerning European taste. Service is excellent too. Vegetarians are well catered for.
