Quite a busy place, we needed as reservation, luckily we were meeting someone that is well prepared!! That night the service was good. For starter i went for the simple chicken spring rolls, nothing special there, just spring rolls. For main had the my most favorite thai dish, chicken phad thai. i'm not bragging (well, maybe just a little) but ive been to Thailand and i've had great phad thai, this was just okay, so i was quite dissapointed.

I took my Australian business visitor to Kong with my wife and 3 friends. The service was again outstanding and the vibe on a Saturday night was buzzing. The Menu is vast enough to meet the preferences of all the guests. Wine is however a bit pricey and the only mistake was when my guest ordered vegetables with his spicy dish he was brought plain cooked vegetables, which were inappropriate and he did not eat. They should have asked us since wok/stir fried vegetables would have been more appropriate with the dish he ordered.

Had a good Sunday lunch of dim sum and sushi on a warm afternoon on the terrace. Food was tasty, wine list well thought out, service attentive and atmosphere relaxed. Pity the menu is so similar to every other Asian restaurant in the vicinity, but a reasonable alternative if you are looking for an upmarket change of scenery.

The restaurant is very fancy and the service is attentive. The dim sum is absolutely brilliant! A must for everybody! The atmosphere is very nice and on hot evenings the outdoor area is lovely.

Food was bland and stodgy, menu ridiculously overpriced with side orders charged extra for and service very average. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant to anyone.
