“Gorgeous food but very long waits”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Granted we went there on the 21 Dec but found that while it didn't take long for us to get a table (there were only 2 of us) it took forever for our orders to be taken and another little while for the food to come out, which stretched our hour lunch break into much longer. The food itself is delicious - fusion asian style tapas - each portion had about 4-5 pieces. We had the salmon parcels, fresh vietnamese rice paper rolls, satay chicken and the prawn dumplings. The salmon parcels were easily the winner - could've eaten a truck load more! Prices per plate were around $10-$20 (with most being around the $15 mark) so it wasn't super cheap. Think I would go again on the strength of those salmon parcels!

“Superb Asian delight”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Ordered the pekin duck, duck curry, vegetable curry, jasmin rice and fried chicken. The dishes had a full and wholesome taste, spicy and at times too much.

Diverse tastes, interesting presentation.
Pekin duck arrived on four large pieces of lettuce with thick tasty sauce to dip in and cucumbers.

Service attentive and professional. Water given at first seating and refilled every few minutes.

@@Monday's special - buy four dishes get the two cheapest free. Great value!@@

Recommended to order more than one meal per person as portions are small.

25 $ meals available and include a number of selected dishes

Recommended highly if you are looking for a good meal.

“Warm and cosy”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

The place is small, always make a booking before going there as it is very popular. Food is great, clean and fresh and not too expensive
