We arrived a little early, just before 7 and the restaurant was a third full and we were taken in by the ambiance and the really appealing music in the background, so we were hapy to have a few drinks and wait for the remainder of our party to arrive. By this time the place was full and buzzing. The food was totally amazing. Good food is usually stunning in its simplicity and their dishes are just that, stuuningly simple, great taste, aromas and flavours with nothing overpowering and nothing bland. Just mouthwatering excellence!
Everyone of our 4 mains were totally different and each of us would have been happy with any of the others choices. In fact we tasted each others food with pleasant abandon. The large portion of cous cous was enough to share between 3 hungry folks and was delectbly light, fluffy and flavoursome. I've been cooking cous cous for a while and never got mine quite a light and good as this.
Then there are the deserts; totally unusual and one has quite a time making choices. However I defy anyone who likes chocolate to bypass their deep dark chocolate cake with hot chocolate sauce. Its not too rich, not too heavy and each mouthful sends you to heaven only to come crashing down to earth when the plate is empty. Sadly I'm a tourist in Sydney so not here too often. I love exploring new eating places, but this one is one I need to return to. Not just for its food, but for its unpretentious ambiance and appeal and ability to make one relax and enjoy getting together with good friends and family.
