The food was pretty decent but honestly there is nothing that special about it. If your looking for smokey, easy dishes than this is just right for you. The quail eggs are a bit too smokey for me, and I found it quite strange that it was served cold rather than warm. The red snapper was fresh and tasty, however $60 for a small snapper seemed pretty expensive. Overall I would say its not bad and I would probably go back in a few months for a casual dinner.

This is a cosy little restaurant tucked away on the outskirts of Chinatown. The kitchen is open and diners are seated along a counter where you can watch the cooking and chefs in action. The hell's kitchen fan in me was totally fascinated by this but everyone seemed to be working seamlessly together so no drama there. The menu changes depending on the day's supply. The night we went, there was very little seafood (I.e. no fish for mains) so I was quite disappointed. We ordered the warmed oyster which came done just right and with a lovely lemony vinegary sauce and finely chopped chives. We also shared the smoked quail eggs - this is not as exciting as it sounds. I had the fennel salad with burrata and an orange sauce, this was nice but I did not think the fennel really had to come with burnt tips (literally burnt black) but guess this was the point of being in a BBQ /grill restaurant. The scallops with hoisin sauce were nice but very much what you can find in a Chinese restaurant. We also had the onglet (cut of beef) with an onion sauce. The sauce was a tad salty but the meat was nicely grilled. It was not a bad experience but pricing is on the high side.
