Great restaurant. The tasting platter was a great shared entree for 4 people. Likewise the mains were a decent size. Both couples came away with doggy bags for our lunches as the mains portions are large. Prawns in Nestum Cereal and Curry Leaves are wonderful! I was disappointed with the sticky black rice pudding, it wasn't sweet enough, and was like a large bowl of rice and red beans swirling in coconut - like a strange soup! That was odd, but not enough to ruin a lovely dinner in a lovely location. And the price was actually reasonable considering it's location

Went to an event here. Food was great, atmosphere was pretty good too. The wait staff weren't the best for an event, as they were very good at getting in the way. I put value as 3 simply because I don't know how much it cost - it was an event not run by sky city so my price doesn't necessarily reflect on the venue.

We Order several plates and every single one if them was worst than the other. Order drinks and after half an hour we did not get them and request them a second time after 15 minutes we requested the bill because we never got the drinks and they still were on the bill. Will never go back

Beautiful atmosphere & decor, food fantastically cooked and attentive waiting staff..
A very well priced restaurant in the centre of town with a variety of asian food. The Banana Prawns are to die for but expect to get food on your fingers but they give you hand wipes so no big deal.

The only two things that let this restaurant down is the desserts (Very common in asian based restaurants) and the meal garnishing/presentation could be better.

I have twice visited this restaurant this month. Once on a mid week evening with a group of business friends and once on a Saturday lunch time with a group of girlfriends. Two very different groups with different requirements and food tastes. On both occasions the service was excellent. The management accommodated the needs of our business group very well and the girlfriends groups was attended to equally well. Also on both occasions the food was fantastic. The garlic prawns were beautifully prepared and although a little messy to peel, well worth the effort. The calamari was cooked just right, still delicate and not overdone or chewy. I can't say that the Asian Fusion food would be to everyone's taste, but I would be highly surprised if most of you couldn't find something to enjoy on the short but inspiring menu. If there are two or more of you - Try the taster platter - wonderful! Oh, and the $10 lunch specials and discounts with your premier rewards card is well worth having too.
