Decided to go and see for ourselves what the hype was all about. You will find the restaurant on the piazza outside of the Lagoona Mall. It is next door to a Chilis and a soon to open Outback. The initial findings are very good, nice clean restaurant with comfortable chairs and extremely modern.
It feels a little cramped and can be noisy, but I can't imagine its hitting for the high end so the style suits. The menu is amazing ! I actually have set myself a goal to go through it all ! So much to choose from. We had a number of starters, including deep fried prawn dumplings and duck dumplings. Also ordered a beef noodle salad and a chicken noodle dish, and a couple of drinks. Technology is used to take the order, everything entered into a PDA, so you expect fast service, but here is how it all went wrong. I am not kidding, this is the order we received our meal - 1. One starter and a bowl of sweet potato crisps. 2. one main 3. another starter 4. another main, 5. yet another starter, 6 Drinks 7 Bill.
Everytime a server passed we asked what to expect next? She would fluster and at one point delivered someones elses starters, they did look nice so was tempted to keep them !

The restaurant has everything going for it, but it is very poorly let down by the service. It has a lot of competition and MUST improve.
